Home Baby Photos
Are you looking for an affordable newborn baby photographer in Michigan? Look nowhere further as you are at the right place. Alex, a professional photographer at your service. I specialize in newborn and baby photography at the convenience and comfort of your own home. I am centrally located in downtown Macomb, MI servicing Mount Clemens, Macomb County, Oakland County and Wayne County.
Newborn, infants, babies and toddlers are my favorite subjects to photograph! Not only are they adorable and so much fun, but I love being able to have lifelong relationship with the little ones and their parents.
My hometown is Rochester Hills, Michigan but I now reside in the beautiful Macomb, MI. I really like the small downtown of Macomb and love being able to drive around Michigan state with my camera by my side. I am a creative soul who loves to wander and document everything. Weather I am walking around downtown and see something interesting, I make sure to capture every important family and friends’ moment, as my camera is always with me and always ready.
I started in photography when I was in high school but fell in love with it long before when I was a young. I then studied photography at the Arts Institute of Pittsburgh located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I then came back home and began working at a small studio located in New Haven, Michigan studying under two Master Photographers: Judy Roberts and Janet Schneider. This is where I fell in love with portrait photography. I then began a business with my talented and self-taught Aunt where we focused on family and kids, high school seniors and weddings.
As my friends started to grow their families, I was being asked to take photos of their newborn babies, celebrations, and family photos. I finally found my calling! I began photographing newborn babies, babies, and toddlers for all my friends and then they started telling their friends and before I new it, I knew I needed to officially specialize in newborn baby portraits.
Then the pandemic hit, and we were all locked up for months. Before we all knew it, lock downs were being lifted and family and friends were all announcing good news! My friends were contacting me to take photos at their gender reveals, maternity portraits, and newborn portraits. With the current state of the world at this point, I knew that these special moments needed to be captured in the safest way possible.
I started Home Baby Photos, specializing in newborn and baby photos at the convenience and comfort of your home. Each and every item brought into your home is washed and sanitized, ready to be used to capture your precious newborns.
Prior to your session, I take the time to get to know you and what you are looking for with your upcoming session via social media, Pinterest and of course, speaking with you in a 1-1 meeting. At the time of your session, I come to your home within one week of you being home. I set up a small background and few lights. I have a few crocheted outfits, newborn photography props, several backdrops, and baskets, but I encourage you to bring your own outfits, props and blankets to make your baby as comfortable as you can and to make sure your photos to be more personalized.
This is what I love, capturing your precious little one while they get comfortable, make adorable expressions and sleep. To get your precious little one to sleep, it is best if they are fed prior to our appointment so they are “milk drunk” and sleepy. This is when they are simply perfect to be wrapped up and photographed.
I cannot wait to meet you! I am so excited to get to know you and learn what you envision for your newborn and baby portraits.
