Hey there, mamas! If you’ve been following along, you know we’ve mentioned before the benefits of having a Northern Virginia newborn photography session in the comfort of your own home. With the added bonus of having all your baby’s necessities at hand, such as their toys or blankets, extra clothes, milk, and bottles for feeding, it’s already an incredible experience!
What if you don’t want to have an in-home newborn photography session? I’ve got you covered. With the warmer weather right around the corner, choosing an outdoor newborn photoshoot in Northern Virginia is a fun and easy way to capture memories with your baby. In this article, I’ll cover three benefits of choosing an outdoor newborn photoshoot. Let’s dive in!
Incredible Natural Lighting and Backdrops
Natural lighting is the only lighting that I work with as your photogrpaher. Seeing as we’ll be outside, you’ll be hit with that natural sunlit glow that surrounds and embraces you. Also, natural lighting makes everything a bit…warmer, adding a loving feel to all of your photographs. This is why I enjoy the opportunity to capture your newborn photography session outside.
Another added bonus is having natural backdrops either from your backyard or a local park! With trees, flowers, maybe even a nice pond or stream, the possibilities are endless. If you’re in your backyard, you can use your backyard furniture like swings or lounge chairs in the photogrpahs. At parks, we can embrace the natural elements like freshly bloomed flowers or sky-high trees! Additionally, if you want to venture out, we could even choose a location like Old Town Alexandria or Meadowlark Botanical Gardens.
Easy to Include Family Members
Having an outdoor newborn photoshoot provides an abundance of space that you may not have indoors. This added space often makes it easier to include additional family members into your photos. Siblings, grandparents, and even pups can make their big debut! While lounging on your backyard chairs with your little one, you can have those grandparents sit next to you or let those pets jump into your laps. Additionally, being outside allows for your fur babies to hop in those photos when they aren’t too busy running around and playing.
I understand wanting to capture the moment of having your parents holding your precious bundle of joy, or wanting to have your fur-baby with your baby-baby. Impactful members of your family all together in a beautiful photo, what a lovely way to celebrate!
Memorialize the Place You First Brought Your Baby Home To
That first time you bring your baby home is one of the most special moments. Nothing ever replaces that first feeling of holding your baby in your home. Photo shoots in your baby’s nursery or home adds to this special moment. Sitting outside in those special spots where you spend hours bonding with your baby can never be replaced.
Now, I know there comes a time where you may have to move. It happens and that’s okay. Having your photo sessions inside and outside only adds to memorializing their first home! Whether you are outside, maybe sitting on a porch swing or enjoying the breeze from your favorite outdoor chair, these are the moments to capture and cherish forever.
