One of the questions I hear the most often is whether families should opt for an in-home vs. studio session for their newborn. While there is no right or wrong answer, there is definitely an option that will feel like the best fit for you and your family.
About In-Home Newborn Sessions
An in-home session is a great environment for lifestyle sessions. These are most popular among families who are welcoming a newborn into their family and don’t want to have to travel to the studio for their newborn photos. Having a session in your home allows you to document the season of life you are in right now in an environment that is your own. Whether it is the sweet and intentional details in the nursery or snuggling on the couch, we capture moments and details of your life that you may not even realize are there.
1) Skip the Travel – Prefer not to load everyone and everything in the car for the trek to the studio? An in-home session is a perfect solution. I’ll come to you. You won’t even need to worry about packing a day bag!
2) If there are siblings involved- in-home sessions can be a great option not to disrupt their day and environment. They will have a chance to play in their own space and feel comfortable while I photograph their baby brother or sister.
3) A more cozy feeling- In-home sessions also offer a more intimate and personal feel. You’ll have the same amazing session experience from the comfort of your own home. You can snuggle up on your bed or rock your baby in their nursery and have photos that tell the story of your family in your own space.
4) You’ve poured a lot of time and attention into a nursery- Do you want your nursery documented? Some parents love pouring extra details and intention into their baby’s spaces and want to capture those details in their newborn session.
Dunwoody Georgia In-Home Session | Baby Beckham The Brandt family opted for an in-home session for a few reasons. 1) since my studio is quite a drive away, this allowed for them to not have to make the trek with baby Beckham. 2) They have an absolutely stunning home and poured a lot of attention into baby boy’s nursery.
Being able to capture their family in their space was such a sweet treat. Beckham’s session reminds me of that sweet Southern Charm with mom’s beautiful dress and the blue and white details in the room. Here are just a few of my favorites from our session together.
No matter how you’re leaning in the home vs. studio newborn session debate, a newborn session is a wonderful way to document this time of newness with your family. If you still have questions, feel free to reach out. I’ll be glad to help guide you to the perfect fit for you!
