Regardless if this is your first child or your third, welcoming that precious newborn into the world is such a momentous occasion! We want to be able to capture those newest hours in their lives as they are in that so sweet, so innocent sleep. Capturing their little faces as they dream, or their tiny fingers and toes is art in the purest form. In order to do this, it is best to book your session within the first 2 weeks of birth. I love to be able to be able to photograph mom and dad, and even brother or sister with the newborn as well, but that choice is up to you!
The Newborn Session is $125.00
It includes the following
- Outfit changes
- Online Photo Album & Easy Online Ordering
- One 11x14 Photo of your choice
What to Expect
Since we do not have a studio you might be wondering where the newborn photos are taken. Like the other sessions we do, we want to capture your newborn in a relaxed casual environment. We like to photograph your newborn wherever there is natural light. A lot of times our newborn sessions will take place at the families home in their living-room, mater bedroom, and or the nursery. However, if you do not feel your house is not suitable, or you are not comfortable with us coming there we can discuss other options.
We all know that babies like to come when they are good and ready, and we understand that the dates are not always accurate. So when scheduling your newborn session ahead of time it is hard to come up with a concrete date. We ask that you give us your due date, and then we will check in with you as it gets closer time to see how you and the baby are progressing. We realize that after you have the baby there is so much going on and scheduling your newborn session may be the furthest from your mind, so we usually contact you 2-3 days after the birth and we well set a date for the session.
Photographing newborns is one of the most challenging photo shoots that we do! We want you to know that we come prepared and plan around the needs of you sweet baby! From feedings, to diaper changes, and everything in between we work around that! If we are half way through the session and your baby needs to eat we will stop what we are doing to allow you to feed them and then continue when they are ready! The newborn session can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours.
We come prepared with necessities, however, if there is something you would like for us to use in the session please let us know in advance and we will be happy to make it happen!
If you, and your husband, along with other children want to be photographed with your precious newborn (which we hope you do!) you might be wondering what to wear. Soft colors work really well, muted pallets are always good! If you have any questions regarding this please feel free to contact us!
There are certain things we have found to work well in preparing your newborn for pictures, and once you have booked we will email you with this information.
After the session it can take any where from 3 days - 2 weeks until your pictures are loaded in your album to view and order. A link to your album will be emailed to you along with the password.
