Both in home and in studio newborn sessions are of course beautiful, but if I’m being honest I have to say that I really do favor my Camarillo studio for newborn portraits. Here are a few of the reasons why, which might be helpful to consider when booking your newborn session.
The Light is Consistent and is Always Beautiful
I am so fortunate to have a cozy little studio space in a loft area of my home. The natural light pours in and I can create gorgeous and well-lit portraits of my littlest subjects. I know the light in my studio very well, and previously, when I offered in home newborn portraits I was never quite sure what the lighting conditions would be like when I arrived at my client’s home. When my clients come to me I always know they’ll be getting my best work with great light.
Props and Other Must-Have Items are Close at Hand
My newborn work is not heavily posed, but there are certain items that I use to create cozy, curled-up images of newborns. When working in my studio these items are within reach and I’m able to provide an optimal environment for babies and their families.
My Camarillo Studio is Pretty (and You Won’t Have to Worry About Cleaning Your House!)
Neutral walls, arched windows, and wide-plank wood floors are a blank canvas for portraits. It’s a place where I can create a variety of looks for different types of portrait sessions. Also, when you come to the studio for a newborn session you won’t have to worry about trying to pick up your house to create a space to take photos. Let’s be real – those first few days with a newborn are a whirlwind and you’ll likely be exhausted. Leave the mess behind and come in to the studio to capture your baby at this precious and fleeting age!
