The immense delight of welcoming a new family member is a truly indescribable feeling. From the instant you bring your little bundle of joy into your apartment, through every moment of showing your selfless care and devotion – the whole journey takes a special place in every mother’s heart. 

As a Portland newborn photographer, infant sessions have always evoked some deep warm feelings in me, and the experience I received from celebrating Tomoko’s novelty was no different. It is something about the idea of how such a small being can bring so many positive emotions that warm the souls of all that surround it. To help you create a unique and memorable photographic experience with your baby, I am here to show you how Tomoko’s family one-bedroom apartment provided a perfect spot for capturing their heartwarming story. 

It is not about the size, but the emotions that fill up the space

When creating Portland in-home newborn photos, many parents become anxious about an assortment of things – from the layout and setting to the size of their apartment. To get at least a tiny bit of the burden off your shoulders, I assure you that even the smallest of places can allow for a picture-perfect outcome. This means that your one-bedroom apartment can provide the perfect setting for some candid shots.

As an experienced Portland newborn photographer, I always tell my clients that finding or creating eye-candy surroundings will not make their photos look perfect. In the case of Tomoko’s session, skilfully playing with the minimalistic setting was everything I needed to put their newborn in the focal point. It is all about the honest and warm feelings you carry for one another, especially when it comes to newborn photography sessions. All babies have that supernatural power to unite the family and bring them closer than they were before, which will translate beautifully into your Portland in-home newborn photos. 

Of course, a few details further embellished Tomoko’s meaningful occasion. These include choosing complementary outfits, carefully considering the props you will use, and deciding on the perfect spot where you will feel most comfortable. 

If you have older children, other than your newborn, feel free to inform your Portland newborn photographer about it, so they can conveniently make them a part of the photoshoot. One of the biggest misconceptions among my previous and current clients is that scheduling an infant session means they will be the only thing my lenses focus on. Although they will be the ones whose existence you are willing to celebrate, your family is constructed by all of its members, so it is only natural that all of you appear in the photos. That even includes your pets!

As a Portland newborn photographer, I am always trying to capture every aspect of your union, and the positive emotions your newborn has brought all along. Contact me if you are interested in arranging your own experience and ensuring you receive treasured memories from this period. It would be my pleasure to be present – even for a moment, in such an amazing life event as this one!
