HOLIDAY IN-HOME CAROLINA BEACH NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY | BABY ELLERIE

The holidays and the cold weather tend to bring a unique kind of warmth into the homes of families. And what better way to welcome in a new life than into the coziness of Christmas time? This special season holds a certain kind of magic, which is what I aimed to capture in this holiday in-home Carolina Beach newborn photography session.

Sweet Holiday In-Home Session

From the jump, I knew this shoot was going to be something spectacular. This couple welcomed me into their gorgeous Carolina Beach home to meet their adorable daughter Ellerie as well as their super sweet four legged friend. The colors in their home were bright and neutral. As a result, the natural light flowing in from the windows beamed on a beautiful cozy winter scene. 

The Christmas tree was a perfect accent to this in-home newborn session. Positioned right next to a big and bright window, it gave us a gorgeous little holiday scene to work with. The colors on the tree worked in harmony with this couples’ beautiful attire. The ornaments and twinkling lights provided just the right amount of sparkle.

The Magic of In-Home Photography Sessions

In-home newborn photography sessions can be intimidating. I like to remind families that the idea is to capture the way things are, and the way the family behaves, as candidly as possible. I never expect a home to be “perfect” and actually prefer that they aren’t. This way, the photographs have a real sense of familiarity and realness to them. It is a huge perk of having an in-home session. I may open up some curtains or move some distracting things out of a backdrop, but I want to keep the home feeling like what it is – yours.

We finished off this holiday in-home Carolina Beach newborn photography session with some darling shots of Ellerie and her parents (and dog, of course!) snuggled up enjoying the coziness. I adore the way these parents gushed over their new baby. This session had a real softness to it. From the Christmas-time themes, to the textures and colors of the cozy home, to the sweet and loving expressions on these parents’ faces, capturing baby Ellerie was an absolute joy.
