8 Reasons for Hawaii Baby Photography, Oahu

hawaii baby photography 1 scaled by Alison Bell, Photographer

In home lifestyle Hawaii baby photography doesn’t include baskets or buckets. There will be time when baby is sitting for themed milestone sitter sessions and cake smashes. But those first few days are sweet and a bit blurry. Make it easy on yourself and your family by having a photographer come to you for a lifestyle photo session.

Why do a newborn photoshoot at all?

Newborn photography Oahu freezes the dramatic growth of a baby’s first few weeks. They change so much in those first ten days, but when its gone, its gone for good. They don’t shrink, and there’s not a repeat button. Keep scrolling to see what this could look like for you!

In Home Hawaii Baby Photography

Newborn Photos can seem daunting

In-home newborn photography near me can seem daunting right after delivery, especially if this is your first time, or you’re not sure how you’ll recover from a C-section.

  • Will you feel up to photos?
  • How are you going to look?
  • What state will the house be in?!

Don’t worry, we don’t set the photo date until after everyone is home and healthy. You don’t need to declutter the whole house, and I’ll be there to help!

5 Tips for Easy Newborn Photos

To make the most if it, and to make it easier, check out my five tips to make sure you have a successful in-home newborn lifestyle photoshoot:

  1. Plan outfits before delivery
  2. Book a photographer in the 2nd trimester
  3. Just tidy TWO rooms – nursery & one living space
  4. Plan around sibling nap times
  5. Stick with 2 baby outfits – max!

5 Reasons To Choose An In Home Baby Photoshoot

  1. You don’t have to leave the house
  2. You can include your dog.
  3. Siblings will be more comfortable – and more cooperative.
  4. You can photograph the whole family
  5. You get lifestyle details of your home and nursery

Hey! I’m Alison, lifestyle photographer, recovering homeschool mama of 4 boys circus and USMC family.

I’ve been photographing families for 12 years. One thing I’ve learned: photos never lose their value.

But the thought of dealing with 3 hour studio photoshoot is just too much. 


Not only do you have to worry about getting everyone dressed and to the studio on time, but spaces can be cramped and uncomfortable – and take forever!

In home newborn photos are half the time and capture the intimate details that studios simply can’t.

How Newborn Photos Work

  1. We book your due date. I only take 2 families per week to leave plenty of wiggle room. Baby’s gonna do what baby’s gonna do! We get wardrobe set before delivery.

2. After baby arrives and everyone is home, we set the actual photo session day. Newborn sessions are weekday mornings usually around 10am and last up 90 minutes and are easy and painless.

3. Two to three weeks after photo day we gather again virtually for your Gallery Reveal & Order appointment! Buy only what you love. Digital files come with the print products.
