Surviving an at Home Newborn Photo Session

We recently received our photos from Bo’s newborn photo session done by the talented Chickey Little Photography and I thought I’d share a few today on the blog!  Chelsea is a local mom friend of mine that has a thriving photography business and focuses on newborn and family lifestyle sessions, she has an incredible eye for them, too.  Chelsea also recently opened a studio space and will be offering photo sessions there as well.   We’ve done in studio newborn sessions before with our oldest and loved that direction.  However, this time around with three kids in total, we liked the idea of simply staying at home.   Another amazing thing about Chickey Little Photography is that Chelsea just began offering packages that include either a cleaning service or a hair/makeup service, so you truly feel pampered and less stressed about your in home photo session.   Is that not genius or what?! 

Chelsea’s approach is very hands on through the entire process from the initial concept consult, to the actual session, to her follow up meeting.    You can go into her studio to see all the images from your session and she helps you select them and guides you through the process of ordering products and/or creating an album.  Chelsea’s thoughtful involvement makes the entire process much less overwhelming especially when you are looking at dozens of images you love while very sleep deprived.

Surviving an at Home Newborn Photo Session starts with letting go…

Let go of your expectations of perfection.  Baby’s are going to get fussy, toddlers will have their meltdowns and big kids will be goofy and sometimes uncooperative, too.   It most likely will be a little bit of a juggling act for all involved.  Trust that your photographer has done this plenty of times and can handle all of the chaos.  Be sure to have the baby fed and changed before the start of session, we had the baby “shoosher” and paci on stand by too.   Try your best to relax and be in the moment.

Thank you for stopping by and reading my post!  We are thrilled with our images from our photos session with Chelsea.  I hope this helps calm you if you are preparing to welcome a new baby and set up a photo session.  I can tell you that the images are absolutely priceless and worth every penny.  I’m excited to replace the photos in our home with our most up to date family photos, including our new family member, baby Boden.   



Chelsea also creates Family Films so you can see your photo session in film format.  I absolutely loved viewing the images from our session this way, the music and all the images she captured were perfect!

Welcome to Jordecor! I’m thrilled to have you here today. Let’s create a home you’ll love!
