Think you need to travel to a photography studio or have the perfect pristine home to have professional newborn photos taken?
Well think again! With the weather warming up you can take them right in your backyard.
No, really a backyard newborn family photo session can be a fun and intimate experience for everyone involved.
With the comfort of being in one’s own space, families can relax and enjoy the process of capturing precious moments with their newest addition. Have easy access to the potty, snacks on hand and toddlers definitely feel more comfortable in familiar surroundings.
The backyard provides a beautiful and natural backdrop, with options for different lighting and scenery. It’s a great opportunity to incorporate personal touches, such as favorite toys or blankets, and to showcase the family’s unique dynamic.
Overall, a backyard newborn family photo session can result in beautiful and cherished memories for years to come.
I had so much fun with this family in their backyard. From spiderman moves, to running around, to jumping on the trampoline and of course lots of kisses and love, this now family of four were just themselves and wanted to capture life how it really is with a toddler and a newborn. Which, let’s be honest, can be a little bit chaotic sometimes!
