As a photographer specializing in newborn photography in the Greensburg, PA area, I love doing lifestyle portrait sessions in my clients’ homes and posed newborn photography in-studio, each for different reasons. There are pros and cons with both options, and in this blog post I’m going to share with you the benefits of choosing to do your newborn portrait session in my studio. Let’s go!
One of the biggest advantages of an in-studio newborn session is the control over lighting, resulting in consistently beautiful photographs. This means that I can create the exact look and feel we want for the photos. I can create a soft, flattering glow that is perfect for newborn portraits.
With an in-studio session, you don’t have to worry about getting your house in order. There’s no need to wash dishes, vacuum, or tidy up your home. While not in the photos, you can relax & watch tv, scroll your phone, or just gaze at your new bundle!
Preparing for a newborn session can be stressful, so I strive to simplify the process. I help with wardrobe selections and guide you and your family through every step of the posing process. My goal is to make the experience as easy and fun as possible for everyone involved.
At my studio I provide everything necessary for beautiful, timeless portraits including seamless backdrops, wraps and outfits. All you need to bring is the baby!
My studio is kept at a temperature that is just right for your baby to be unclothed. Achieving a temperature of around 83 degrees in a single room of your house may prove difficult, especially if you have high ceilings. My studio provides a comfortable environment for this special session.
I clean my studio regularly as well as in between each session, including blankets and props, to maintain a safe and hygienic environment. I have received training from several newborn photographers (including one of the top photographers in the country, none other than Ana Brandt!) to perfect my safety and posing skills in the studio, so you can trust that your precious bundle is always safe with me.
Posed newborn photography sessions provide consistency in the final product. The lighting, backdrops, and overall environment are controlled, which ensures that your final images have a consistent look and feel. This means you can be confident that you will receive high-quality, cohesive images that look like the studio images you may have seen on my website.
My professional photography studio is equipped with high-quality gear, including cameras, lenses, lighting, and other accessories. For sessions in my studio, I have access to all of my equipment, whereas when I travel, I only bring certain items. Additionally, the studio setup allows for more creative options, such as using multiple lighting sources or experimenting with different setups, to create unique & meaningful images of your precious little one.
I really enjoy having newborn portrait sessions in my studio. It brings me joy to know that the families I work with feel relaxed and stress-free, allowing me to do the work.
