Baby H - a newborn session in the home (lifestyle),

Kettering, Northamptonshire.

January 2018


What does a newborn lifestyle session involve?


Mostly it's an informal way of capturing your newborn baby with your family in your home. This can be more relaxing for the whole family and especially if you have siblings, as they are more comfortable getting used to me and the camera. A newborn photoshoot in your own home can be artistic as well as natural. The best way to make this happen is to keep a couple of rooms as clear as possible, although you don't need to completely remove as much as possible, as your home should be as you like it. This can be a mixture of story telling as well as capturing some unique and special images.


Baby H was captured his gorgeous home and mostly in their bedroom and the upstairs landing. The light in the room and simple yet interesting decor will make these images timeless. A baby and family session in the home can be two to three hours depending feeding and sleeping/settling. This session was around that time and his lovely parents rewarded me with the title of "baby whisperer". Some babies settle wrapped, this is not the case for all however, but if that does not work I try other tricks before baby is back to mummy for a milk top up or a cuddle.


My main aim was to capture as many features of baby H along with making the experience as natural and artistic as possible in a lifestyle session. Having images with mum, dad and sibling were barely directed. I captured as many moments as well as aiming to make images that would work well on display in their home.

I loved my morning with this family!


A lovely way to continue this story will be to capture baby H at his milestones, three months, six months or one years old for his first birthday in a similar lifestyle session in the home.

I will travel for home studio sessions and outdoor sessions to anywhwere in Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Leicestershire and surrounding villages: Oundle, Market Harborough, Stamford and beyond.
