Why Choose a Studio Baby Photographer to Capture Every Milestone

Why Choose a Studio Baby Photographer to Capture Every Milestone

Watching your child grow is one of the best and most rewarding experiences of your life! Yes, my three kids drive me crazy, but watching them grow into the people they’re meant to be is amazing. I’ll never forget holding each of my babies for the first time. I wanted to document everythinggg!

If you’re an expecting mama, I’m sure you plan on taking all the photos of your adorable baby to share with family and friends. What about each of your baby’s major milestones!? Don’t worry; there’s an option to help you document your baby’s biggest milestones without any of the stress. 

As your baby is growing, there are certain advantages to selecting a studio photographer. Here are some of the best reasons to consider an indoor studio session inside my Exeter studio

6 Reasons Why Studio Baby Photography is the Best

  1. Controlled Temperature to Keep Baby Comfortable 

The weather in the Portsmouth area can be very unpredictable. Don’t get me wrong, outdoor sessions are GORGEOUS if the weather cooperates, but within minutes, a sunny, warm day can easily drop fast, turn windy, and be uncomfortable for your baby. One of the most significant benefits of opting for a studio baby photographer is that you don’t have to worry about unpredictable weather OR keeping your house clean for an in-home session. Your baby’s comfort and safety are the top priorities. In a controlled studio environment, your little one will be snug and secure, allowing the session to go smoother and the photos to look more natural. 

  1. Classic Backdrop to Focus on Your Baby

Studio sessions offer timeless and classic backdrops that add a touch of sophistication to your baby’s photos. Whether it’s soft pastels, a plain classic white where your baby is the center focus, vibrant colors, or elegant neutrals, you can choose from a variety of backgrounds that will make your baby the star of the show. 

These backdrops and props create a polished and professional look, ensuring your baby’s milestone moments are nothing short of amazing. I love working with families before our session even begins to get an idea of your vision and ideas so we can capture exactly the look you’re going for. 

  1. Your Baby is Safely Contained

As any parent knows, babies are incredibly active, curious, and, let’s be honest, unpredictable, especially as they get older and are more mobile. In a studio setting, your baby can explore and interact freely within a safe and controlled space. This ensures your baby stays secure while allowing me to capture those candid, sweet moments without any outside distractions.

  1. Stress-Free Experience

Hey, I LOVE outdoor sessions, too. Look at my social media and portfolio; you’ll see many outdoor portraits. However, an outdoor session adds a few additional layers, which can be fun but might be stressful with a baby. 

You won’t have to worry about finding the perfect outdoor location, obtaining special permits that can oftentimes be costly, weather-related mishaps, or lugging a load of props, strollers, blankets, etc. Everything is conveniently set up for you in the studio, ensuring a relaxed and enjoyable experience! You just bring your baby and enjoy a special morning or afternoon together.

  1. Convenient Location

Studio baby photography is a great option because it offers a convenient location that is easily accessible for parents. You won’t need to travel long distances or brave harsh weather conditions to capture your baby’s milestones. Plus, if we have your session at home, you have to worry about cleaning and staging your home! Ditch the stress and let me handle the cleaning. This convenience factor allows you to focus on making the session memorable and enjoyable for your family. 

I love it when the families make a whole day of their special session, maybe grabbing lunch, shopping, going to a museum, or just soaking in every minute of our session. I have a lot of local recommendations of fun things to do around my studio, so just ask! I’d love to share all my favorite places. 

  1. Professional Equipment and Lighting

Studio photographers have top-notch gear and lighting setups that ensure your baby’s photos are nothing short of stunning. With outdoor sessions, shadows, and harsh lighting can be more difficult to control, and when time is of the essence with little ones, it’s nice to know all of that is taken care of. 

  1. Mom’s Documented Too!

As you snap photos of your cute baby during that first year, you’re likely the one behind the camera and not in front of it. With a professional studio session, we’ll ensure that you are photographed with your baby! You and your baby will treasure these images for years to come. My full-service process means your hair and makeup, and wardrobe are included in the session, so that’s even less to worry about!

First Year Collective

The First Year Collective is a collection of 3-4 milestone sessions throughout baby’s first year. The big milestones sessions can include maternity portraits, newborn sessions, the 6-month “sitter” milestone, and the 1st birthday studio session. Once you book your First Year Collective, you’re all set! You can look forward to the baby photographer photographing all your baby’s major milestones.

PS – aren’t six month “sitter” sessions SO adorable!? The reason why these baby milestone sessions are perfect for the studio is because they can showcase your baby’s newfound ability to sit independently. It’s all about immortalizing their first giggles, curiosity, confident sit-ups, and mesmerizing gazes into the camera.
