Newborn Life {Style} Session Tips at Home - Memphis, TN Photographer

Every person is different.

Every baby is different.

Every family is different.

Every photographer is different.

It goes without saying then that everyone’s ideas, needs and wants will be different too. So these are just my personal and professional tips on how set up your at home newborn lifestyle session.

  1. Scheduling can be tricky since (unless you’re induced) no one knows when your blessing will make their arrival, and that everything will go exactly as planned. So here’s how I handle it: unless you are doing a Fresh 48 session, schedule your session at least a week or 2 out from the day you get home. I suggest this because by then you’ll start to have a rhythm going of feeding and sleeping.

  2. I give myself and my clients a little cushion of extra time for their session despite which package they choose. I do this because things are bound to come up- baby cries, poops, needs to be fed, fighting sleep, siblings are cooperating, the list goes on!

  3. Speaking of spots - if you have a spot in your home besides the nursery that you love and want to capture a photo there, please let me know! Otherwise I designate the spots with the most/best light.

  4. Being a new parent is tough! Some parents just want photos of their baby (or all the kids) but I implore parents to get in there too. You want to remember this special time together because trust me, they grow so fast. Don’t worry, I’ll edit out those circles under your eyes (haha!)

  5. If you need a break too, it’s ok. Do what you need to do! I am a mom too, I don’t mind feeding, rocking or changing the kiddo if you feel comfortable allowing me to. Or you can even invite the grandparents/a friend/etc. over if you want to lend a hand! It takes a village! Never be afraid to ask for help!

  6. Wear something comfortable, soft, and makes you feel confident. Go barefoot if you want! You’re at home! I love the laid back look, y’all. Moms tend to like flowy or button up tops and dresses, dad’s tend to go for a solid cotton shirt and jeans.

  7. If you don’t want to do your session at your home, but rather that of a friend or family member, that is fine and I will gladly go where you need me to. Just with the understanding that there will be no nursery images!

  8. Please do incorporate some meaningful/special items into your baby’s session, like heirlooms, blankets and outfits if desired.

I hope these tips help you out a bit! Life is a precious gift and having a tiny human come into the world is a beautiful miracle, I never take for granted the significance of that milestone in someone’s life!

(A special thank you to the B, C and P families for allowing me to capture their beautiful families!)

2019- The Road Ahead

Hello Friends! I Marie Kondo-d my old blog page and started fresh. Welcome to Musings! For my first post, I wanted to share about the road ahead - what to expect from me and my business and get candid about where I’m at now.

2019 will less about “grind”, and more about relationships. It will be more about expression and less about trying to fit in with everyone else. They say alot can change in a year, that was definitely the case for me in 2018! It was a deep seeded awakening that has lent to a much needed overhaul of the soul. I’m definitely not the same person anymore! I’m becoming more comfortable with myself, where I’m at, what I want to create and how I want to spend my time (and with whom.) Speaking of time….

Although I will still be open for business, I will be scaling back to part-time again for the time being as I am having to help a family member recover from a serious illness. I’m not at liberty to discuss it but any good thoughts/vibes and prayers would be appreciated! I’ll also be carving out time for travel and long overdue home projects that have sat on the back burner for a while. I’m purposely making time to stop and smell the roses.

If 2018 + the past 6 weeks of this year have taught me anything at all it’s that being present isn’t just a nice anectdote, it’s a way of life. While this post is talking about the year ahead, going forward I want to be a person who is present, accepting whatever may come her way with grace, not judging anyone or where they may be at. I just can’t be a part of the rat race anymore. I just want to embrace life, create art and stay in my own lane. Making time for the things that truly matter. Being around people who share the same zest for life that I do. If you jive with any of what I just said, I’d love to work with you sometime ;)

Aside from that, I have made some other changes, including adding new packages to my portrait & real estate sessions; a new scheduling system to help clients book more easily; upgrades to my client portals; updated contracts and agreements; and new policies for my online galleries. I’m very excited!

I’m going to wrap up this ramble, but not before I say thank you for taking the time to read it and being an awesome human!

xoxo
