New Born

Welcome

Congratulations!  Having a baby is a very exciting time in your life!  It does not matter if this baby is your first, second or even your fifth, it is still a very exciting time for your family.  

 

There is so much time that passes between purchasing maternity clothes to picking out your baby’s first birthday cake.  This time goes by very fast and no one wants to forget about it.  You will want to remember every moment of the first year of your baby’s life.

 

  This is where I come into the picture.  I would love to help you document and remember those special milestones.  This can be done from the time of maternity to when your baby turns one-year-old.  My job as a photographer is to capture all of these moments and turn the photos into something that you will treasure forever.  I understand that when photographing a baby there is a large amount of planning as well as a very large amount of patience that goes into that time.

  Please read through this guide to view pricing information and learn about the types of sessions we offer. Be sure to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have and give us a call to check availability and book your session.

New Born Sessions

These are definitely one of my favorites.  I live for sweet little newborns and taking their photos is something that truly makes my day. I can absolutely assure you that I'll go out of my way to ensure that your sweet bundle of joy is warm, comfy and most importantly safe throughout the session. With a decade of experience as a newborn photographer you can rest assured that your beautiful new baby is in the best of hands.

When is the best time to photograph

Oh the joy of holding your tiny little baby for the first time! But they grow up so fast and you do not want to miss this chance to capture portraits of them so you can cherish this moment in life forever. I recommend the best time to photograph newborns when they are between 6 and 15  days old. The sessions are about 2 to 3 hours long with various poses.

Props

Our studio has everything you could ever need for a newborn session. You can arrive with nothing but your baby and we can take care of you. However, the following is a suggested packing list:

Diapers, wipes, pacifier, blanket, 2 bottles of milk.

 

You are welcome to bring a change of clothing, and we might warn you that when handling a naked baby someone will get soiled! If it is us, we are totally fine with it; however; we may suggest bringing a change of clothes if you have to go anywhere after the session.

Preparing For Your Session

1.    The first thing to do is to contact me before the baby is born so that we can set up a date related to your due date.  The reason why it is a tentative date is because babies like to come on their own schedules.  

 

Once you have delivered the baby you can contact me to schedule the actual newborn session.   It’s best to schedule when the baby is between five to forteen days old.  The reason for this is because they still want to sleep a lot and this allows for the baby to be posed easily.  If you have had a C- section, please let me know.  It will be important to have an extra set of hands at the session to help. 

2. When you schedule your newborn session we will discuss your expectations including the types of photos you want.  If there are any poses or special props you wish to try please let me know ahead of time.  

3.     Sessions normally last  two to three hours.  For this reason, I try to schedule a newborn session at about ten or ten thirthy in the morning when babies tend to be sleepier. A majority of this time is for switching blankets and props, feeding the baby, changing the baby, cleaning up and putting the baby into poses.  

4. Sessions are done at our home studio in Bubali where I use beautiful natural light.

5. Babies are usually more cooperative during the session with a full tummy. Before you arrive at the studio make sure you feed your baby at home or as soon as you arrive at your session. We can discuss style etc meanwhile the baby is being fed. 

6.     When arriving to your session please have the baby only wearing a diaper.  I love to photographer babies without clothes on or in a wrap.  Having clothing on a baby in the photographs will take away from showing exactly how tiny they are within the few days of his or her life.  Clothing takes away from the tiny details of hands, feet, and even where the umbilical cord was.  

7. If the parents or siblings are going to be in any of the pictures I suggest that they wear clothing that is simple, light and comfortable.
