Hello, lovely Houston mamas!

As a trusted newborn photographer, I'm always on a mission to make your in-home sessions as smooth and delightful as possible. You might think you need a bunch of stuff at your session, but let's dive into the top 5 things you don't need at your in home newborn session. Trust me; it's all about keeping it simple, relaxed, and centered on capturing those precious moments with your new little bundle of joy.

1. Fancy Wardrobe Changes 👗: It's tempting to envision your newborn in a plethora of adorable outfits, but the truth is, your baby is most content in their natural state. A simple outfit or swaddle keeps baby comfy, photographs well, and ensures we focus on capturing the pure, unfiltered essence of your precious little one.

2. Elaborate Props 👶🏼: While a cute prop can add a touch of charm, let's not get carried away. The focus should remain on your newborn, not the props. Opt for a few meaningful items so we can let your baby steal the spotlight with their innate cuteness.

3. Over-the-Top Backgrounds 🏡: Your home provides the best backdrop for your newborn session. Embrace the warmth and intimacy created by natural light and familiar surroundings. Your home doesn't have to be perfect to create authentic and beautiful photos.


4. Excessive Planning 📋: Newborns are delightfully unpredictable, and that's part of the magic. Instead of stressing over a rigid schedule, let's go with the flow. I always add in extra time to our sessions for breaks so we never feel rushed. Often, the most heartwarming photos emerge from candid moments. Trust the process.

5. Large Crowds 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦: While the temptation to invite Grammas, Grammas, Aunts and Uncles is real, a quieter environment usually works best for newborn sessions. Keep it intimate with immediate family members, allowing your baby to feel secure and at ease in front of the camera.

Remember, the key to a successful newborn session is simplicity, authenticity, and a stress-free atmosphere. Embrace the natural beauty of your baby and your home, creating timeless memories that you'll cherish forever.
