Evan//Lifestyle Newborn session//San Diego Newborn Photographer

This Newborn session is so near and dear to my heart, I’m so thankful I get the opportunity to photograph family and all their seasons of life! These two have been waiting a long time to grow their family and I am so happy Evan has come into their lives forever.

In home Lifestyle Newborn sessions are , in my opinion, one of the most authentic ways to capture this precious time. What better place to shoot in than in your own home!? Its the best environment for mama, baby and the rest of the family.

Kleinertz Family - in home newborn session

Shooting in home newborn family sessions (whew, thats a mouthfull) gives me allll the feels!  The Kleinertz family invited me into their sweet home and introduced me to their brand new baby boy, Remy. How cute is that name!?! Keep scrolling to see more of this adorable family plus I wrote a few tips when planning your in home newborn session.

Thank you again Kleinertz family for having me in your home to capture this special time for your beautiful family. 



I wanted to share a few tips when planning an in home newborn session that might help prepare and give you ideas when planning for yours!
When to plan your session? I recommend within the first, at least, three weeks after baby is born. You want to wait until after you have been home and settled for a few days from the hospital but don't wait too long, babies tend to stop sleeping all day long and will get into routines and begin to be more fussy on a daily basis, sorry new mamas! I have shot plenty of one month old babies in their homes and it goes well so please don't let this detour you, its only my recommendation. 





Make sure baby is fed and has a clean diaper before your photographer arrives. Have any other family members dressed and ready before this as well. It's a good idea, if you have other littles to make sure their bellies are full before your session. 








What to wear for an in home session? I always recommend some comfy clothes when doing an in home session! It's typically not the session to pick out those fancy dresses or have your guy in slacks. I recommend starting with Mom, when you are comfortable and feeling good in what your wearing it shines through in the photos. Pick colors and patterns that would compliment your homes decor! I prefer a neutral palette but if you like bright bold colors than you do you! Remember when dressing a family, matchy matchy doesn't work and is a little old fashioned. Think coordinating, choose 2-3 colors and work with what you have. You can mix patterns as long as they compliment eachother. 









You don't need to have a gorgeous designer home to do an in home session. All a photographer needs is a space next to a door, window with good lighting and we will work our magic. I've even moved peoples furniture around to get just the right angle or wall I want to use. So please don't let this stop you from doing an in home session. Nothing beats the comfort and cozy of your own home and to have that captured in photos with the ones you love will be something you will cherish forever.
