Baby Luke * In Home Lifestyle Newborn Session in Orlando *

Baby Luke’s in home lifestyle newborn session in Orlando is on the blog this late afternoon! I was so excited that Natasha hired me for both her maternity AND newborn pictures (if you haven’t seen her maternity pictures – check them out here). This was such a treat for me! I loved spending time with Natasha and her family again, and of course as a photographer, loved all the bright light that poured into their beautiful home.

Newborn sessions in a client’s home are so near and dear to my heart. It is such a privilege to capture this time in a family’s life; these sessions are intimate, sweet, and personal. Pictures we produce from a newborn session help to put on a pause this newborn stage so that it is never forgotten. I want all of my clients to have tangible memories from this squirmy, snuggly, and maybe even sleep deprived, stage of life.

To capture really genuine and loving pictures with your newborn, I ask mom and dad to do things they would normally do with the baby – swaddle them, hold them tight, and stare at them (you know you do it!). I don’t like to pose my clients too much in a newborn session. Instead, I’ll put them in a spot with pretty light, and a clean background, and have them love on their baby. I direct them through it a little, but I mostly encourage them to just enjoy this time with their newborn.

Ashe & Ames * In Home Lifestyle Twin Newborn Session *

Get ready for two times the cuteness; Ashe & Ames in home lifestyle twin newborn session is below! This style of photography is so special for families with newborns. I much prefer in home portraits for newborns, as opposed to studio portraits, where they aren’t in their natural environment, but that’s just me! :) Even though, yes, the nursery is pretty perfect, and probably doesn’t stay this clean all the time, these pictures give us a glimpse into the Lawson’s family’s life – babies crying and needing pacifiers, the pets wanting attention, and mom and dad making hilarious faces at their babies, trying to understand why in the world they’re crying! That’s what I want my photography to capture. Not just the perfect portrait, but the real moments too.

The trick to getting soft, naturally lit portraits is lots and lots of window light. For indoor portraits like these, I make sure to shoot at a time of day where the sun won’t be streaming in directly from the side (like at sunset or at sunrise). We shot these around 10:00 in the morning. It was also so helpful that Caleb and Lauren’s home had a lot of white walls and ceilings; this makes it easy to shoot virtually anywhere in a room because the sun bounces off the white paint and reflects the loveliest, cleanest light on the subject. I also make sure to turn off any ambient lights in the room. There’s no need for the yellow-colored tint from a lightbulb to conflict with the natural light coming in from the windows. This saves me a lot of time in post too – way less editing time!

Ashe & Ames are incredibly blessed to have Caleb & Lauren as their parents. I loved watching my friends cuddle with and love on their sons. They are clearly so incredibly happy to be parents for the first time! Thank you Caleb & Lauren for inviting me into your home and letting me be part of the family for the day.

Natasha * Airy In Home Maternity Session in Orlando *

Get ready to see the most light, elegant, and airy in home maternity session in Orlando! Natasha’s home was a dream for a photographer – it was almost all white, mixed with shades of cream and grey. This allows for light to flood in from the the windows, and bounce off of the walls and ceiling in the most beautiful and bright way. This bright light and these soft colors also allow your eye to focus more on the subject; there are hardly any distractions around Natasha that take away your attention. Your eye goes directly to her! And her cute dog of course :) I love the cameo by Natasha’s sweet german shepherd.

Natasha is so beautiful; her thick dark hair, heavy lashes, and gorgeous skin were so fun to capture. More importantly, Natasha was such a kind and sweet client. When we took these pictures, she was on bed rest and having to be very patient while waiting for her son to arrive. She was so excited to mix up one of her days and take pictures to celebrate the life growing inside of her! We also enjoyed some time outside; the white curtains hanging from her porch were the perfect prop to play with to create pictures with movement. They flowed around Natasha in the most effortless and airy way!

If you want your maternity session to be as light and airy as Natasha’s, I have a couple of suggestions. First, wear something light, both in color and fabric. Light fabric adds movement to a picture, and is also something for the subject to play with. Her dress was the perfect choice for this shoot. Second, clear out the clutter. Remove the unnecessary knick-knacks from bedside tables, chairs, and floor. We want to keep the shot simple if you want a light and airy feel. Lastly, let’s shoot in a room with lots of windows or doors, and let the light flood in. I open blinds, curtains, doors, etc. to let that soft light reach my subject. This light is the most flattering!
