Congrats on booking your in-home newborn session. Now that you booked your in-home newborn session it’s time to prepare your home (still looking for a photographer? reach out for some more info). Here are three helpful details to think about in preparation for your newborn session.
Beautiful lighting is what makes a photograph great. Now depending on what kind of photographer you booked (natural vs artificial light) this may apply to you. For those of you who booked a natural light photographer these tips will come in handy.
Your home is beautiful, however; sometimes what translates well in real life doesn’t come across well in photos. In some cases your photographer might ask to move the coffee table or other furniture that could be distracting in the image. Here are a few things to consider.

If the family photos will be taken second, then it might be best to change into your outfit just before it’s time for the photos. Looking for more session tip?
