4 Tips For In Home Newborn Photos in Miami

Dec 29, 2021

While bringing home a new baby and getting ready for a newborn shoot can sometimes feel daunting. Here are some tips and tricks to help you feel more prepared for your in home Newborn Photos Miami session. You’ve heard the expression before for good reason, “it all goes so fast” and that is because well…it does!

1. Preparing Your In Home Newborn Photos

I know it’s a messy time and I certainly don’t expect the house to be perfect. My main focus is rooms with great natural light – this usually is the nursery, living room or master bedroom. If you are able to ahead of time tidy up the little things in these rooms (even if it means storing some things in the closet during the session). I always joke that we just need to remove all the items that require caring for a chid! The diaper pail, the assortment of things on the changing table, etc. We want the focus to remain on you and your brand new baby. Keeping the home semi-warm also helps baby from waking up or startling since they are in limited clothing, I suggest keeping the home warmer than you’d want. 70-72 degrees is a good range.

2. Preparing Your Baby Before The Session

I always recommend to have baby stay awake in the morning as long as you are able. Feed/nurse baby 30 minutes before I am set to arrive. This will help to keep baby sleeping soundly during the session.

3. Preparing Mom with Wardrobe, Hair & Makeup

Prior to our session you will have wardrobe appointment to select different dresses that I steam and bring to you the day of. A hair and makeup artist comes to the house, and while mom is getting glammed, I will be taking solo shots of the baby.

4. Don’t Forget To Smile & Enjoy!

In home lifestyle sessions are great way to capture the feel of what your life looked like at this moment in time. There is more of a documentary approach with these sessions. If you are worried about big siblings running free or being hard to handle, just know I love that part of newborn photography! Embrace the season of life that you are in. I try my best in playing with siblings to get them engaged in the photos. Have any other questions? Ask away!
