Decor Tips for In-Home Family Photography
(newborn photography nyc, westchester baby photographer)

It can be nerve-wracking to let a photographer come into your home for family photos. Many families worry about how their homes will look as the backdrop of their photos. So today, this post is all about how to let your home decor style shine and get your place in tip-top shape for your session. Don’t worry though, all of these tips are very easy to implement!

We love to photograph baby and family portraits in meaningful settings within the home. The nursery is always ideal, since parents have decorated the room with so much love and anticipation for the arrival of their little one. You can just feel those emotions when you’re in the room, and we love to capture those tender moments. Decor pieces can often lend to that sentimental feeling and we love to photograph special details such as a handmade baby blanket or toys passed down from previous generations. Don’t be afraid to tell us the story behind your decor!

The master bedroom and living room are also lovely additional settings. We ask parents to clear any clutter, and photograph with creative angles for the most flattering backdrops that are free of distractions. This goes for your decor as well. Try to limit yourself to just a few favorite decor pieces that really express your style in each room to avoid a visually cluttered look. This also allows the pieces you do display to really pop in photos.

One important detail to think about when you’re preparing your home for photos is the proportion of the furniture in your rooms. If your furniture is too big or too small for the room it’s in, it is going to be glaringly obvious in photos.

Step back and take a critical eye to your room layout. Is your rug the correct size for your space? Is your coffee table way too big next to your couch? Changing up the proportions of your furniture can help your room look more balanced. Instead of your eye being drawn to an out-of-place piece of furniture, your decor will grab the attention. This can sometimes be difficult to gauge, so don’t be afraid to enlist the help of professionals like the interior designers at Havenly. They’re an interior design service that’s available completely online, so it’s quick and easy to get some advice before a shoot.

There are plenty of easy, finishing touches you can give a room to give it a quick refresh before a shoot. We love to add a fresh cut flower arrangement to help perk up any area of the house. You can put some of your child’s recent artwork in a frame for a unique personal touch that won’t clash with the rest of your decor. A few books stacked up on an end table can give an interesting pop of color. These are all easy decor choices that can make a big impact on your space.

So don’t be afraid of inviting a photographer into your home for a family session! We’d love to capture your family and your home so those memories can be preserved for years to come. To book your own portrait session, please reach us at our Midtown studio!

The greatest honor of all
(nyc family photography, family photographer westchester)

As a family photographer, there’s no greater honor than getting to capture portraits for our fellow family photogs. We had the pleasure of spending yesterday evening with the incredibly talented Saren of Saren Cassotto Photography and her gorgeous family.  Saren totally made our day with her sweet words below. An awesome reminder of why we do what we do. Couldn’t have said it better ourselves!!

“These images… They will be with my children for years and years to come- long past my FB shares are posted. Long after they let me hold them on our laps like they did in these images…. and they will have these to remember just how truly cherished and loved they always were.”

This little cutie surprised Mommy & Daddy six weeks early, but look at him now! Chubby cheeks and the sweetest mohawk EVER. 🙂 We had such fun capturing a blend of posed and lifestyle portraits that will work beautifully as a keepsake album to be treasured for years to come. Even “big brother” Clutch made time in his busy schedule to join us for some of our favorite family portraits. Thanks again for welcoming us into your home, and allowing us to preserve these precious memories for your family!!

NYC Fresh & Modern Lifestyle Newborn Photography Studio
There are so many magical milestones to capture in the first year with the brand new addition to your family. A newborn is adorable while sleeping soundly, curled-up in womblike poses, and swaddled snugly as a tiny bundle of joy. At six months, your baby’s personality starts to shine. Your baby can sit on her own, and give a variety of sweet animated expressions. At nine months, there’s the fun-filled curious stage, when your baby will be crawling and pulling herself up into a standing position. At twelve months, your baby is celebrating her very first birthday, standing on her own, and possibly even taking her first steps! Every stage is precious and worthy of being captured with professional photography that will become so much more meaningful to you once these fleeting moments have passed. Please contact Sophie at our Midtown Manhattan studio (212.544.0102) to schedule your own newborn baby photo shoot, and we can’t wait to preserve these priceless memories for your family!
