An at home newborn photoshoot in Chelsea

As a London Newborn Photographer, I love spending time with clients at home to capture more the whole story of your new arrival.

I worked with a wonderful family who asked me to capture an at home newborn session in Chelsea.

My at home newborn shoots are relaxed and provide opportunity to not only capture what everyone looks like but the connections, emotions, snuggles and home life.

When is the best time to have a newborn shoot in Chelsea

I capture lifestyle images which are very natural and is less about posing with props and more about capturing the details and telling the story in beautiful light.

If you are looking for the more studio posed photography you need to plan your photoshoot for when baby is between 7-14 days old while they are still curled up and sleepy to allow for the wrapping and posing to be done. I always discuss what you’d like from your images and I tend to recommend that families wait until little one is around 7-8 weeks old because they are beginning focus with their eyes and you can get a range of more alert…

Can we capture some images of the whole family on our photoshoot?

Of course!

Being at home means that everyone is in their natural surroundings, the added benefit is that you have everything you need at home for baby too.

The other benefit is if you have older siblings they can get involved in fun ways and then when they’ve had enough they can be easily occupied whilst we slow the session down to capture some images of the new arrival.

We started this Chelsea photoshoot session by capturing some fun images of everyone in the master bedroom.
