Studio vs In Home and What You Need to Know

The Session Process

  1. It starts when you hit the contact button and submit your info to me. Depending on your due date and my availability, we'll go over a few tentative dates and details for your session.
  2. I'll send you a link to my online booking system, so you can review and sign the portrait agreement and submit your deposit to hold your date. A tentative weekend date will be held 5-10 days following your due date.
  3. We'll chat via e-mail or over the phone about what color choices and looks you want for your baby's photos. We'll also discuss clothing choices for family photos.
  4. Contact me within 24 hours after delivery, so we can make sure to get your session on my calender within 5-10 days from birth.
  5. I'll send you some pre-session information, so you can be best prepared for your session. Your session will take place at 10am and go until approximately 1pm. Most of this time is spent soothing and feeding baby to keep him/her calm and sleepy.
  6. Your fully edited and retouched high-resolution digital image files are delivered electronically through a private online gallery with a full printing rights release. This is usually done within 2 weeks.
  7. Your done! You now have gorgeous images of your brand new baby for birth announcments, gift prints, albums and wall art for your home.

Home Newborn Session


  1. No need to leave your house right after baby is born.
  2. You may be more comfortable at home.
  3. At home, baby's nursery can be used for family photos, as well as getting nursery details captured.
  4. Older siblings don't need to go anywhere. They can stay as long as they are quiet and not disruptive.
  5. You can use the time to do errands at home, or just rest and get caught up on e-mails.

When an In Home Newborn Session won't work...

Unfortunately, an in home session won't work for everyone. Some houses just don't get enough natural light in to make it work and a lot of natural light is a must. In that case, I highly recommend you book a studio session.

If you're unsure if your home will work for your baby's newborn photos, just contact me.

Studio Newborn Session


  1. No need to clean your home for the photo shoot. Leave the mess behind.
  2. No need to worry if your home has adaquate space and lighting; the studio has both.
  3. At the studio, we'll have access to more variety of props, which will result in a more diverse gallery from your session.
  4. The studio will be just the right temperature for baby.
  5. You can still rest and relax while I work on taking baby's photos. Feel free to bring your phone or tablet to catch up on e-mails, or all that fun hollywood gossip.
