There is never a time where your child will change more quickly that in the first month of their lives. It is why it's imperative to capture images as soon as possible after birth. For studio newborn I like to photograph your new baby within 10 days of birth. For lifestyle sessions in your home, I like do do them within the first month. Obviously sometimes those aren't possible for a variety of reasons. And don't worry, we will make it work to get you photos.
I have all the adorable studio props. Wraps and blankets and layers and bonnets and bow ties galore in all the colors. Bowls and baskets and shushers and backdrops. If you want lifestyle at home I can bring some things there as well. Our goal ... beautiful, timeless images of this new blessing in your lives.
Newborn sessions are baby led. If the baby needs to eat or be changed, we stop. If the baby takes a while to go to sleep, we wait. Sessions in studio are typically longer as we are waiting for sleeping baby poses. Lifestyle sessions allow baby to be awake for images as we are simply documenting life in your home as it is. Expect to spend up to 3 hours for studio and up to 2.5 for lifestyle sessions.
Both sessions allow for images with siblings and parents.
I have trained with nationally renowned newborn photographers in posing safety and newborn safety. My job is to make sure your baby is comfortable and safe the entire session.
Your collection will include both color and black and white images. The nature of newborn photography requires more intensive editing as their skin is usually patchy-colored and oftentimes peeling as they are super new. For that reason, your editing process might take a little longer than regular sessions.
I offer single sessions for newborns or full-year milestone packages. Those are paid throughout the year and not all at one time.
