It was a privilege to be part of the celebration of baby Olive’s arrival with an intimate newborn in-home photo session in Mexico City for my friend Natalie. Naturally, I was thrilled when they asked me to visit their home to document this cherished moment in their journey as new parents!
These photos aren’t just about documenting a new baby; they are about capturing the essence of a growing family, the beginning of a journey of profound love and infinite possibilities.
Welcoming Baby Olive: A Casual Afternoon in Natalie + Ben‘s Home
Natalie is a talented stationer with an incredible sense of aesthetics, so it’s no surprise that her home is also perfectly curated and beautiful, making it a wonderful place to photograph. Because of the abundance of natural light and soft, calming tones, it couldn’t have been a more ideal setting for this newborn in-home photo session. Because even the cat briefly graced us with her presence, hah.
The Magic of a Newborn Home Photo Shoot
Natalie wanted everything to feel real and casual, just moments from their everyday life — a concept I absolutely adore. Photographing newborns in their natural surroundings, where they feel most at ease and secure, always gives the best results. In-home newborn photo sessions offer many opportunities for genuine moments because they unfold in the comfort of their own space, where love and tenderness naturally take center stage. And for this reason, authentic, unscripted sessions are the best way to showcase precious everyday moments that are gone far too quickly.
