My name is Misty with Misty Westebbe photography, and I want to share a little with you today about our newborn shoots. If you are watching the video or reading this, most likely you are expecting a newborn and have many questions of what to expect when you go to a studio. The question for you to answer would be, do you prefer to have your newborn shoot done in your home or in our studio?
In the Studio
With our shoots here in the studio, everything will be set and ready for you to come in with your sweet baby. The best timing is between five and ten days old because they stay asleep so much better. They're so sweet and so peaceful.
Our goal is a peaceful, comfortable cozy cottage for you to come in and bring your new baby. We have everything set up for you and have it at the right temperatures. We also have blankets and wraps and anything that we could need.
If there's something special that you want to include, it's always welcomed... Grandma's made a special blanket or auntie has knitted a special little cap. They create sweet memories. And sometimes we even have parents bring in things that they wore as a baby! And that's super sweet to pass down.
I love to snuggle with these babies. I love to calm them. I love to give mom a break and to know that when they start to get a little fussy, they just need a little love and attention and that we can calm them, and in moments they'll be ready for another set.
I have begun to do in-home shoots for the convenience of the parents, so they don't have to leave the comfort of their own home. So in that case, we serve the middle Tennessee area and will gladly come to you within your home.
If there are siblings, then they have their playroom. They have areas that they can be, and it makes it simpler and fun for them.
While mom is getting her hair and makeup done and pampered, we would start the newborn shoot. All our equipment would be brought into your home and set up to capture your new little one in their own space. We also love to capture some shots in the nursery and all the places that you have worked so hard to prepare for them.
With many years of newborn photography, I feel like it's always changing and evolving to what my style is. And my style is less about the props and more about the baby. The key to everything is keeping it peaceful and calm, whichever place you choose.
