Families often prefer to be photographed outdoors but when it comes to little babies photo shoots they are held at home in the cool shade of a summers day or cosied indoors on the colder months.
At home you’re in your own environment, with your photographs personalised to your life as it is in that moment. You’re not having to travel and pack up nappies, a change (or three!) of clothes and everything else that goes with venturing out with your little one (whether they be a newborn or 6 months old!).
I love at home sessions for both babies and families. Not only are the photographs a snapshot of the people and their connection at that time of their lives but also their surroundings, of home. A big benefit is also that you can have a photo shoot at home rain or shine and during any month of the year!
I was contacted by Laser Vision Scotland recently who had run a competition giving away a baby photo shoot as a prize with the winner living a short drive from Carnoustie. From there I got in touch with the winner, Emma and arranged to visit her at home with her baby girl who was 6 weeks old at the time.
Emma and I had a chat on the phone before we met and I walked through what the session would look like, that feeding and changing while I was there were likely as baby sessions are baby led, that we could have a cuppa and a natter, take our time and capture some beautiful photos of them both at home.
Emma suggested we use her rocking chair towards the end of our time together and I am so glad she did as those are some of my favourite images from her session!
Thank you Laser Vision Scotland for entrusting me to be your photographer and to Emma for welcoming me into her home and allowing me to share her session images with you all.
