In-home Newborn Session Guide


How to prepare for your in home session

Congratulations on the arrival of your new baby and thank you for choosing Storyteller Photography to capture this beautiful time in your lives.

On the day of your session, I will arrive at approx. 10.30am and be there for around 2-3 hours. 

There is time to give baby a feed while I set up, and during your session, you can relax in your home while I capture gorgeous images of your baby. 


To create the perfect environment for your baby’s session, a clear space of 2x2.5m or more is preferable, but I can definitely work with what is available, as long as it is warm enough for baby, so please let me know if I will need to bring additional heating!


For parent and sibling images, neutral colours and tones always photograph well. Please avoid logos and patterns on shirts. I also have the maternity gowns from my client closet which can be worn for newborn sessions.

After I have arrived and set up, we start the session with parent/sibling/family images and then I move onto the newborn images.

If you have any questions at all regarding your baby’s session, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to meeting you and your family very soon, Steph
