When Angie and Steven invited me to photograph their daughter’s newborn session in their NYC skyrise apartment, I didn’t realize what a TREAT I was in for! Not only are they literally the KINDEST, most beautiful people, but their new daughter Aliyah was just absolutely perfect for our session time together. This first image was truly an outtake I snapped while mom was feeding baby during a break from shooting and these quiet moments ended up being some of our favorites from the gallery 🙂
I get a LOT of requests for in-home newborn sessions. Most of my work in the newborn gallery you see on this website is done in my Connecticut studio. BUT, I do love traveling to clients’ homes and capturing more lifestyle and candid moments using natural light. While I DO bring a few simple props (and flooring) for some gorgeous, more POSED setups with your baby….. I do NOT bring my studio lighting for a full posed session together; that is reserved for studio clients coming to me here in Canton, CT.
This gallery shows you how an in-home lifestyle session can have some posed prop elements to it as well, without the use of studio lighting and all the fancy equipment and poses. Simple and sweet!!! Timeless.
In case you’re thinking, “Saren, I don’t live in a skyrise NYC apartment with views all around,” take a look at this Connecticut Home Lifestyle Newborn Session I did a while back which was showcased on the blog to show how a simple and quaint Connecticut home is also a perfect place to do a newborn session. I work around the window light in your home, typically shooting in the living room, nursery and master bedroom. If you’re unsure if your home will work for an in-home lifestyle newborn session, email us a few iphone pictures and we’ll figure it out together!
In the meantime, THANK YOU ANGIE & STEVEN for sharing your home and beautiful Aliyah with me – it was a JOY and an HONOR not only to photograph her new beginnings but also to follow along these last few months as she’s grown. Can’t wait to see you guys again!
