Hello everyone. Woohoo, I did my first model call photo session. Those of you who follow me on my FB Page will remember me posting a model call to do newborn sessions at home. I got huge amount of interest and picked 8 families to visit and try to create beautiful body of work. I already have amazing studio work portfolio, but want to differentiate my work a bit.
Reasons for me wanting to try newborn sessions at homes.
– I get many requests for older newborn sessions, like past 5 week stage. Mums would ask if I can do curled up newborn posed images as in my portfolio, but from my 7 years experience I can say with confidence that it would pretty much impossible. Newborns at this stage would be a lot more alert and wanting to explore and see. Home sessions would give possibility to record more personality images and more natural images with baby being more alert.
– Talking about natural baby photos. Home sessions give totally different feel to images. They are more organic, there is more family connection in their own environment. This would give potential clients a choice even if their baby is at first weeks. If you are after those more organic shots, then this is perfect for you.
– Story telling images. With project expanding I will be exploring idea or recording more candid moments too. Especially involving siblings or pets.
– I would leave all my props at at the studio and work with what each environment can give to me. With light, with various locations in house. With baby nursery etc. I might bring with me few clothing items for very small babies, but generally involvement of props would be down to minimum.
So I did my first model call home session.
Here is what Megan’s parents wrote about their experience.

By the way I was not expecting Megan to be a sleep. She was just happy sleeping. Normally babies would be pretty alert 🙂 We did warm up house a bit and maybe that was making her sleepy 🙂
