I photograph newborns within seven days of birth. If you miss this window, don't worry! I will still work with you. However, the first week is perfect for babies because they sleep really well, and they are still tiny and flexible.
We will not actually schedule your session until you have recovered from delivery, but we will reserve a "rough time frame".
I am very flexible with the duration of my newborn sessions. I work on "baby time", which means if your newborn needs to be changed, needs to stop to feed, or just needs some cuddles, that is totally fine! My average posed newborn sessions are two hours, and average lifestyle sessions are one hour.
The content of your newborn session is up to you. I typically photograph a portion of posed newborn content, followed by a portion of lifestyle content. This can include siblings, grandparents, and the family pets!
I have worked years to educate myself on the proper ways to photograph newborn babies and keep them safe. This includes wrapping and posing methods. I will always make sure to use "hands on" methods to ensure that you baby is safe and their head is stable. We will also discuss any injuries or circumstances to look out for like hip or shoulder injuries from birth, healing circumcisions, etc.
I have numerous wraps, baskets, blankets, and crochet outfits for your session. I have everything that we need to capture your cute little newborn. However, if you have any specific outfits, props, or heirlooms, we can use them!
You sure do. You have the ability to print professionally with us, and we can guarantee quality prints. We offer metal wall art, wood prints, traditional prints, albums, magnets, and even Christmas ornaments. That said, you can totally print yourself and we will help you along the way.
I typically photograph in home. This is often very easy for recovering mamas, and also is convenient for feeding and changing. I will bring everything to you to have a full and successful session. If weather conditions are favorable, we can also take our session outdoors.
I also have studio space available for an hourly rental fee.
