Sibling and Newborn Photography at Home

Baby, Family Adventures

Newborn photography at home allows for a more relaxed lifestyle approach, especially when older siblings are involved. Lifestyle photography isn’t about those perfect posed newborn sleeping shots. Instead it aims to capture that authentic interaction between a family.

I love those pictures of newborns that are awake and interacting with their surroundings. There’s always smiles as they stare at their older siblings trying to copy their silly faces. And who can resist blowing a few raspberries to guarantee a belly laugh or two. Queue me having to wipe a whole load of spit off my camera and lens as little ones chuckle away!

More than likely most of the newborn photoshoot will take place in your bedroom or nursery. Although I’ll always hunt for the best light in your house. But if we’re near your bed and you have older siblings there’s a good chance we’ll be jumping on it for some action shots. Check out some of my favourites from this newborn photoshoot below.

There are so many benefits to booking a newborn photoshoot at home. Mainly because you don’t have to leave the cosy little bubble you’ll all be in. You can relax knowing you’re in familiar surroundings if someone gets hungry or needs a nap. There’s no strict timetable and I’ll work around you.

And because your photoshoot is at home you won’t need to pack lots of different outfits. I always recommend a simple plain timeless outfit. This mum hit the brief perfectly dressing her newborn and girls in neutral colours that will stand the test of time. They also work perfectly with her neutral decor keeping the focus on those cute newborn details rather than the outfit. If you’re after some more outfit inspiration you can check out my spring / summer or autumn / winter Pinterest boards.

You might be worrying about all the tidying and prep you will need to do for newborn photography at home. All I ask is you tidy the surfaces in the rooms we’ll be taking photos. For example, clear those bedside tables of baby bottles in the bedroom. Then pop on some clean duvet covers in a plain colour. I’m not worried about a few wrinkles in the bedsheets, no new mum has time for ironing!
