Newborns are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. I love capturing the freshness that fades away so quickly. Newborns are best photographed within the first 5-10 days of being born. Please call before your little one is born so I can be sure to leave a tentative appointment time open for you!
How the Session Works
A newborn session normally lasts 2 hours but can take up to 3 hours. We work on baby time, so I always allow plenty of time for extra feedings and cuddles.
Clothing/Props for Newborns
Newborns are best photographed without clothing. I provide all of the fun props. I have hats, headbands, blankets, wraps and buckets in all different colors. I'm always looking for new fun stuff to keep the sessions unique.
Babies change so much in the first year of their life. Many people photograph their babies 3-4 times throughout there first year of life. Newborns are best photographed in the first 5-10 days. The next big milestone is 3-4 months of age. They are laying on their tummies holding their head up on their own and have found there smile. 6-8 months of age is great when they are finally sitting up on their own. The finally major milestone is 1 year old. They are standing on their own and possibly even walking at this point. If you would like your child photographed multiple times throughout the year, your best option is to join my Bellies and Babies plan. You save money on your sessions and get a discount on your prints.
Clothing/Props for Babies
Depending on their age we can usually use 2-3 outfits during a session. I have fun clothing and props throughout your child’s first year of pictures as well.
