Newborn Home Arrival Session Near Memphis.

One of the first things us mommas get excited about when expecting a sweet bundle of joy, is putting together the perfect nursery.  Creating a space of peace and comfort is important. Many hours are spent in the nursery, making sweet memories. Finding all the right furniture, bedding, toys, books, stuffed animals, decor, and just the right shades of paint helps us deal with the anticipation. It also gives us a cozy spot to take newborn home arrival photography.

This lovely couple had quite the setup and was eager to capture what momma had been working on for quite some time. As you can see, the theme is super cute, bright and welcoming. I loved the chair being next to the window and the darker curtains. I’m sure she’ll shut those often.

A Thoughtful Setup Is Worth a Few Pictures.

Leading up to this shoot, I had already been taking advantage of the Marketplace for unique session items. I’ve found some really cute stuff for newborn home arrival sessions since moving to Mississippi. Pinterest is always great for ideas and both help me avoid breaking the bank! I provided a number of props for this shoot. After 6 children, buying things new can get rather expensive.

When you have a setup like this and a detail-orientated photographer, capturing a newborn lifestyle session at home is a breeze. Of course, there is no better feeling than bringing your fresh bundle of joy home for the first time and allowing them to get comfortable in their new surroundings. The moments with mom is dad is definitely what I love most about newborn home arrival sessions.

Types of Home Baby Pictures to Take.

When I go to a client’s home to capture their new arrival, I always try to locate the baby’s special place. I like to ask where they’ve felt at home the most. No matter the area or lighting, we can find a way to make it work. Sometimes, their favorite spot is simply in mommy’s arms. That’s OK too. We can follow you around as if it’s a daily routine, cooing the baby as you go. Natural is always best.

Either way, nothing completes a baby book like nursery photos. Like I said, it’s just a special place. I like paying attention to all of the little details, edges and peeking places. We can position baby on the floor with a special blanket from grandma or a favorite stuffed animal from her big sibling. My personal fav is a swaddled bundle in a rocking chair. There are different ways we can set this up and even incorporate mom and dad.

To wrap things up, similar to fresh 48 sessions, I like to capture the interaction between the parents. How they work together, care for the baby individually and cherish the moment is what I really like to focus on. Quality time and baby management in other areas of the house is a great way to end the shoot. Parents are normally a lot more comfortable after we’ve spent some time together.

Don't Put Off Portraits Once the Baby Arrives!

Whenever you’re planning for a newborn home arrival, don’t forget about the pictures. Even if you set something up on your phone, you’ll be glad you captured the first few days at home. Once these baby moments are gone, they’ll be nothing more than memories. If you spent a lot of time and money on a nursery, the least you can do is show it off with some professional images of you in it!
