5 Benefits of an In-Home Maternity Photo Session
Pregnancy is such a memorable time in new parents’ lives. It is a time of excitement, beauty, and anticipation as the two of you await the arrival of your new baby. There is nothing quite like having your internal glow captured as well as the connection between the two parents. There are many options for a maternity session, but one that is often overlooked is an in-home session.
Here are a few reasons to consider an in-home maternity session.
Since your home is unique to you, your images will also be unique to you. In-home maternity photos can be taken in any room of your home and can really capture your personality. I encourage expectant parents to think out of the box. Maternity photos don’t have to be glamourous, flowing gowns. (Though they can be!) If you love to cook, grab your apron and whip up a batch of brownies during your session!
There are so many maternity portraits that have the same exact background, the same props, and the same blankets. However, when you have a lifestyle session in your house, you can rest knowing that your photos will be unique and like no other.
In-home maternity photos can certainly be more intimate. Some expectant moms may want to show off their beautiful bump in their favorite lingerie.
Having an in-home maternity session is convenient. You won’t have to pack everything you want to be included in the picture and haul it to the destination. Instead, everything you need will be right there, because you will be in your home.
Let’s say you want to be photographed in multiple outfits, if you’re having a photo session outside, changing outfits is going to be difficult. However, if you’re holding a photo session in your home, outfit changes will be easier
Preparing your home for a session
Often expectant parents are hesitant to schedule an in-home session because they aren’t sure how to prepare their home. Well, guess what? Preparing your home for the maternity session is a breeze. Just have a look around your home and find the room that has the best light – many photographers like to schedule in-home sessions in the morning when the light is usually better.
If you have a specific room you would like to use, track the light for the next couple of days in order to determine the best time (when the sun is shining through the windows).
Many choose to start their session in the master bedroom before moving into the nursery, but really, you can choose any room in your home, even if that means just the staircase.
These are just a few of the benefits of an in-home maternity session. Contact Leigh Ann Pincus Photography to schedule your in-home maternity session today!
