A home newborn session is my most loved of all sessions to preserve for families. There is such a level of comfort and intimacy parents feel with their new little one that can only be captured within the walls of home and nowhere else. There is a safety experienced at home, one that opens up a level of emotion and vulnerability, that I believe is genuinely unique and beautiful.
Inviting someone into this safe place so soon after coming home with a little one can seem overwhelming because mom wants everything to look or feel “perfect.” When I prepare families for this experience, I assure them it is not about the home but rather the people who live there, the love and relationships shared within those walls, that I capture. The home decor and style are merely a backdrop within the story, their little one is the star.
To help minimize any stress and allowing our time together to unfold smoothly, I offer the following tips for moms preparing for a home newborn session:
Finally, I encourage parents to fully embrace this moment with their newborn and savor all of the snuggles, kisses and baby loves. The photographs we create together will be moments that are yearned for years from now.

Hi! I’m Christi – a lifestyle photographer based in Jackson, Mississippi capturing seasons of motherhood for moms and those she loves most. I thrive within simplicity, seek to encourage others and actively pursue an intentional life grounded in love and gratitude. I’m easily distracted by home DIY videos, fresh french-pressed coffee, thrift stores and puppies. If you share a connection with these heartfelt ramblings, I would love to work with you.
