Have you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall during one of my in-home newborn sessions? I'm constantly asked "How does that work?", "Do you pack your entire studio up and take it with you?" "Where do you actually set everything up?"
It's quite simple actually! Everything that I use for my usual studio newborn session is portable. I typically take three props, two fabric backdrops, posing beans, my strobe, a small heater, my posing table(as apposed to a beanbag) a few wraps, tiebacks and a few little rompers and of course my camera. I won't lie, it's a few trips back and forth to the car but it usually takes me about 20 minutes to get everything neatly set-up.
The most common area I use is the living or family room and on occasion a master bedroom or nursery. Totally depends on available space.
Once we're all set, we start our session. The session lasts about 3 hours and then I pack it all up and leave. This is super convenient for my parents who don't want to take their tiny humans out just yet or are busy recovering from the long, painful hours of labor and delivery.
Here are some of my favorite shots from some of my in-home newborn sessions.
