Emma was born as a leap day baby, right before the pandemic shut everything down. Ashlee reached out in the summer to ask if I’d be able to do a Royal Oak in home session to capture Emma at five months, and of course I said yes!
In home sessions are fun (and honestly easy on parents) because I come to you! Also, I find kids are more comfortable in their space.
This session took place on a rainy, dark August morning, which is highly unusual for summertime! But we made it work and I love how this session turned out! Emma just turned one so I know that her parents treasure these first family photos at this Royal Oak in home session.
A recommendation I give parents who aren’t sold on newborn photos (some people aren’t into it or are overwhelmed those first weeks) is to just wait until their baby is between 6 and 9 months old for photos, or when they can sit up. Usually six-nine month sessions are my favorite and I don’t get to do them often! Usually baby is more responsive, can smile, can sit up, but can’t run away from us yet! It’s an option – and if you book a full session, we can still do some in your home and capture the nursery and your family in a natural way.
Whenever you decide to have your first professional family photos, I’d love to capture them for you! Book your 2021 session now!
