Coral Gables Newborn Photographer

Are you currently expecting and searching for a Coral Gables newborn photographer to come to your home for a lifestyle newborn photoshoot once your baby arrives? 

I’m Melissa, a Master Certified Coral Gables newborn photographer with over 14 years of experience photographing families. I provide a luxury photography experience in the comfort of your own home and can continue documenting your growing family through the years! 

Below are just a few reasons why I think having your newborn photos taken at home is the perfect way to document this next chapter of life.

Newborn pictures taken in the nursery

In the last few months, you transformed a room into a nursery and spent countless hours shopping, putting together, and creating a beautiful space to bring your baby home to. Newborn photos in the nursery are a must. Especially when there’s an incredible mural like the one in the session featured! 

You will spend so much time in the nursery, having newborn photos in the space you will make a lot of your first memories together in just makes sense.

Comfort of your own home, with everything you need

Getting out of the house can be totally overwhelming the first few weeks of having a newborn. Having your newborn photographer come to you, where everything you and your baby needs already is, also just makes sense. 

As a professional photographer, I believe that baby-led is the key to a successful lifestyle session. If baby needs a break, it’s perfectly ok. If baby is awake, great! If baby sleeps the whole time, it’s not a problem. There is no rush and I have full confidence in my ability to deliver a beautiful gallery, always.

Look at the life you’ve built, through the lens of your Coral Gables newborn photographer

Lastly, one of the more obvious reasons I think that choosing to have your newborn photos taken at home is for the documentation of the life you and your partner have created, both in your home and your bundle of love. 

These are your first family photos with your new member. These first few weeks together are full of learning one another, very little sleep, and so much love. A lifestyle newborn photographer will document the quiet, intimate, authentic moments that will transport you back in time every time you look at them.
