A new baby is only new for a very short time. As much as we think we will remember the precious moments, we won't. The kissable, chubby cheeks, tiny fingers and toes, soft silky hair, pouty lips, and sweet newborn scent will soon be a faint memory. Newborn photography preserves these details and this is my specialty!
Newborns are best photographed within the first 14 days (day 5-10 is best), as they are very sleepy and flexible enough to curl up as they do were in the womb. We strongly suggest scheduling your newborn session while you are still pregnant to ensure availability as we are usually booked for several weeks out.
As a mother of 2, aunt of 12, and GOD-Grandparent of 2, I've had many years of experience caring for newborn babies. Your baby's comfort and safety is my top priority. I patiently and delicately work with newborn babies taking as much time as needed for capturing cuddly poses. My newborn sessions are photographed in my calm, warm, cozy studio that's perfect for your little one. I supply all of the backdrops, baskets, hats, headbands, wraps, and props based on my style, but you are welcomed to bring an outfit or prop of your own.
The full studio sessions usually takes 2-3 hours. Mini studio session lasts about 30 minutes. In home lifestyle sessions last about 1 hour. It sounds like a long time, but it goes by very fast and is absolutely necessary to allow time for feeding, changing, soothing, dressing, set changes, and careful posing. When all is done, you'll have beautiful, timeless photos of your baby that will be enjoyed for generations!
