Cozy In-home Newborn Photography

Every pair of soon-to-be parents anxiously wonders what those first few days will look like. And who wouldn’t? This cozy in-home newborn photography session provides a great look at what bringing a new life into the world (and into your home) feels like.

This wonderful family contacted me for an in-home photography session in Hampstead. I had previously taken their daughter’s preschool pictures. I was elated because newborn photography sessions are always some of my favorites to shoot.

In-home Newborn Session

Capturing the cozy in-home vibes involves a lot of soft textures and natural lighting to pair with the sweet squishiness of a new baby. Getting up close is what makes a newborn shoot so special. How else could you catch those tiny details that make a newborn just that? The umbilical cord and tiny toes of this baby boy were too sweet. He was also born with something extra small, and extra special on his right hand. Take a peak below to see this precious boy’s little surprise!

An in-home photography session with me wouldn’t be right without some candid shots of the proud parents cuddling up with their newest addition. This is where a cozy in-home shoot really encapsulates the family as they are in the first few days. Big Sister got involved in this part of the session. She was so excited to introduce her new baby brother to her favorite book. 

This darling sleepy boy got to enjoy his morning snuggling with Mom and Dad. The natural lighting that morning time provides created a beautiful environment. It contributed to the cozy feel of this in-home session. The cool-toned colors of this family’s wardrobe were a perfect accent to the bright backdrop the morning light gave.

Savoring the Newborn Moments

All together, with a few forehead kisses from his loving parents, this cozy in-home newborn photography session caught the moments that every parent wants to hang on to. These days in their lives will seem to blur together. Their baby will grow before their eyes. Sooner rather than later they’ll look back on these photographs to reminisce on the first few days of cherishing their new baby boy. 

I am so happy to be a part of savoring this morning and these memories for this beautiful family to treasure.
