Peoria Arizona Newborn Pictures | Peoria Newborn Photographer
These Peoria Arizona newborn pictures might just be my favorite ever. I first met Allie a year ago when she did my hair and makeup for our family pictures. I absolutely LOVE her work and recommend her to everyone I know. This year we decided to swap, hair and make up for family pictures of her growing family and let me tell you I think I got the better end of that deal. I got my hair and makeup done AND I got to add this session to my repertoire.
Why an In-Home Newborn Session?
In-home newborn sessions are my absolute favorite because of something Allie said perfectly while we were taking these pictures. “It feels more authentic.” And it does. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t leave the house for two months after Emi was born just trying to get my bearings and find a new normal. The thought of not only having to leave the house but do so prepared and glammed up for family pictures would have sent me straight back to bed. And that’s normal! They call this the 4th trimester for a reason. Mama’s healing and baby is just as dependent on mom to stay alive as they were in the womb except now it’s a lot more challenging to actually do. Home is where you will both be the most comfortable.
Plus, you don’t have to pack a bag or worry about forgetting anything. Everything you could possibly need is right there within reach. Blow out? thats okay, mama and baby’s closets are down the hall. Spit up? dad’s closet is there too. Breast feeding break – don’t even bother with a cover, I’ll wait on the couch while you retreat to the nursery for a much needed break (though I’m always willing to snap a few pictures for your eyes only of this precious and tender bonding moment).
Skip the stress. Let me come to you.
What if my home isn’t cut out for an in-home session?
Believe me I get it as I sit here in my grandma’s basement, where we live, with 90’s walls, next to zero natural light, and 1000 miles from the house-goals that sit on my “dream home” Pinterest board. Not all homes can handle an in-home session, mine is one of them so no shame here. The good news is there is a great alternative and its called a studio. There are so many wonderful studios around that are styles to look like home so you can get that in-home vibe no matter what. Plus then you don’t have to worry about cleaning up or de-cluttering.
Lifestyle studio session sound more your speed? Shoot me a message and I’ll send over some of my favorites in the area.
