The Perks of In-Home Newborn Sessions

The Perks of In-Home Newborn Sessions

My lifestyle newborn sessions take a more relaxed approach than typical posed newborn photography at a studio. Sessions are held in your family’s home, with a focus on both your new baby and your growing family. Baby is photographed in his/her natural environment and  your little one sets the pace! Today I am sharing just some of the benefits of scheduling an in-home newborn session with Kristy Dooley Photography.

I capture you in your space!

One of the best parts about in-home sessions is that your photos reflect you and your new family! This allows your images to be authentic and flattering without feeling overly posed. Have favorite items or places in your home? Not only is your space the backdrop, but it actually becomes a part of our session. 


You are where you are most comfortable!

Everyone is more comfortable and at ease in their own home, right? And you have everything you need for baby, right at your fingertips. This is also where the magic happens! Not only are we able to capture genuine portrait style images but I also photograph the moments during the in-between (feedings, diaper changes, siblings "helping" etc) When my clients look back at their images, these are often the ones they treasure the most. 

What About My House?

Clients are often concerned that their home isn’t “photo-worthy.” Do not worry, it will be fine! I am very comfortable working in a variety of lighting situations and can easily do a little rearranging to make your space work. Typically, lifestyle images are taken in your baby’s nursery, the living room, and master bedroom, but I can make the light work wherever it is best in your Vermont home. Capturing the details of your home is a fun addition to the memories captured in a lifestyle session.

Do you have any questions about lifestyle newborn sessions? I would love to hear from you.
