A Baby At Home Photo Shoot With A 12 Day Old Baby Boy
Back in September I spent a lovely morning photographing this family at their home in Surrey. Twelve days earlier they had welcomed their second son into the family, and this was a great time for a baby at home photo shoot.
As the name suggests, Baby At Home Sessions are photo shoots that take place in your home, rather than at my studio.
These lifestyle photography sessions capture families and their baby at home with natural and relaxed photographs.
The sessions can take place any time during a baby’s first year, but if a family wants to capture the newborn period I recommend scheduling it to happen within the first 6 to 8 weeks after their baby is born.
This baby boy was 12 days old at the time of his session, and his family had booked the shoot before he was born so that we could have it as early as possible. Typically babies are very sleepy during the first two weeks and this meant that we only needed to pause the shoot a couple of times when he needed a feed.
During an in-home session we’ll typically spend time in 2 or 3 rooms within the house; the master bedroom, living area and sometimes the nursery if it’s ready.
Not everyone has their nursery ready when baby is born (ours wasn’t ready until our eldest was 6 months old!) But if a family has decorated the room in time for baby’s arrival it can be nice to capture some pictures of baby in their room, and some pictures of the room itself.
It was a real joy to be able to spend time with this family, and capture these early days with their new baby for them. I have put together some more of my favourites from the session below, and I hope you enjoy seeing them today.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing some of the highlights from this lovely family’s Baby At Home session.
