Newborn Photography

Newborn Photography is truly the most rewarding moments we get to capture for your new family. While fashioning these precious moments you can rest assured that your baby’s safety and security is our number one priority. Whether inside or outdoors you can expect a stunning arrangement of props and scenery to make your baby’s photos irreplaceable. We strive to preserve the beauty and elegance of your baby’s natural features. Our rustic style creates a feeling of nostalgia we know you’ll love. We use a mix of soft editing and natural light to preserve your baby’s natural color tones. If this isn’t your first bundle of joy we welcome siblings to join your newborn to create a loving collection of photos at no additional cost.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR CUSTOM PORTRAIT SESSION

BEFORE:

  • Review our package options, complete the enrollment form, and pay for your session.

  • Receive e-mail confirmation with notes on how to prepare your newborn for their session.

  • Contact us within three days after delivery to confirm your session.

NEXT:

     We begin creating lasting memories! Photoshoots typically occur 8-12 days after baby is born. We form an atmosphere that is both comfortable and welcoming for you and your newborn. When you arrive to our studio we’ll discuss options for props and different poses for your portraits. Most importantly, we handle with care!

To prepare, please consider the following:

1. You may not yet have established a feeding schedule, though it is important to feed as much as your baby will accept for twelve hours before the session. You also can feed your baby at the studio. This helps keep your newborn sleeping deeply during the session. 

2. If breastfeeding, mom should avoid spicy food for 24 hours before the session, as eating this may upset the baby's stomach. If your baby is formula fed, please bring extra formula and bottles. 

3. Play with and try to keep your newborn awake as much as possible before your session, ideally for at least one hour. Doing so allows us to spend more time photographing and less time working to get your baby to sleep. (Give a bath, keep undressed etc.)

4. We have all the props, clothing, and equipment at the studio. Dress your baby in loose fitted clothes for easy removal and to avid lines on the skin. If the baby uses a pacifier, bring at least two. 

5. The studio will be warm (85F+) for the baby's benefit. Your should dress in layers. If your session is outdoors we will be sure to keep your baby warm and protected from the elements. 


AFTER:
