In-home newborn or family photo session: How to prepare

in-home newborn or family photo session

While having my studio in Dedham is absolutely amazing, some clients prefer to have in-home newborn or family photo sessions, and I love them! Its fun to shake things up and get my creative juices going by getting out of my regular routine in the studio. But since I am coming to you rather than you coming to me, there are a few things I will ask you to do to prepare before I arrive, to set us up for success!

What to wear for your newborn photos

Maybe you booked your Boston newborn photo session a few months ago when you were in your second trimester of pregnancy and thought eventually you’d shop for an outfit for your newborn session. Fast forward and now you are either quickly approaching your due date or maybe baby is already here and you are realizing that you never got around to buying something! Or, maybe you are a planner and you’re 10 weeks pregnant and already thinking about what you will wear to your newborn session. Either way, this blog post is for both of you.

First of all, don’t worry. We will get gorgeous photos of your baby and your family no matter what you wear!

Best Newborn Photos of 2023

My Favorite Newborn Photos of 2024 - Roslindale Newborn Photographer

Its February, which is one of the slowest times of the year for me as a newborn photographer. I like to spend this time going through all my photos from the prior year to update my website with the best newborn photos of 2023.

Spring Boston Family Photos – My favorite!

Boston Family Photographer Spring Sessions

The absolute best part about Spring Family Photos in Boston is all of the gorgeous flowering trees. My favorite location for shooting family photos is the Arboretum, and there are a wide range of flowering trees that start in early May and go all the way through June. Because I’ve photographed there almost exclusively for years, I really know the best spots.
