Would you prefer a baby photographer to come to your home or you come to a studio?

I am a baby photographer and travel to parents homes to take the photos. I am thinking of opening up a baby paradise studio in my home for people to come to. If I came to your home, the photos would be amazing but there are a few more themes and options if done in my studio. What would you prefer?

  • I would prefer them coming to home. I am also a photographer and I very much enjoy going to other people's homes or other locations they choose. I think families are more comfortable in their own home. I have shot many newborn photos and it is much easier on the mom to do it in her home. I have had many times where mom/baby had to take a break to breastfeed. Also if dads are involved in the photos, they feel a lot more comfortable in their own home. I've had many requests where mom says dad doesn't want to dress up and go in a studio- that brings me a lot of work ;)
    I don't have a studio and do NOT want the headache of owning one either ;) You can always take some portable backdrops if it is a must.

  • Monica- you can get wonderful "professional" Christmas pictures done at your home. I do at-home Christmas portraits every year. And to think, you won't have to transport your dogs to a studio ;)
