NEWBORN EXPERIENCE

NEWBORN EXPERIENCE

SOMETIMES, THE SMALLEST THINGS...

…take up the most room in your heart. Those first few weeks of your baby’s life pass by in a blur, and you will never have those precious moments again. A newborn portrait session is the perfect way to capture the sweet innocence, delicate features, and angelic expressions that fill your heart with joy. A newborn marks a fresh chapter in the life of a family. Preserving this special time with artistic newborn photography is truly an act of love.

our Style

Our custom portrait sessions are a unique and luxurious experience to preserve your family’s most precious moments. We strive to create a relaxed and memorable newborn photography session, while capturing a variety of natural newborn portraits to truly capture the beauty of this special time. With an eye for perfect moments and unique perspectives, we create newborn portraits that are beautiful, intimate, and emotional.

SCHEDULING

It’s never too early to book! Newborn portraits are ideally captured within the first 4-14 days of life, when your baby will be sleeping deeply and curling up naturally for those precious newborn poses. The exact timing depends on a number of factors that we will take into

consideration once your baby has been born. We understand that these first few weeks are unpredictable, and although we can no longer capture some of the flexible poses from those early days, we still welcome babies at a few weeks old for in-home lifestyle newborn sessions.

 

We only book a limited number of newborn sessions per month to ensure availability around your due date. We offer sessions on weekday mornings, when babies are at their sleepiest. Husbands are welcome to join us on their lunch break if they are already back to work. If you require a weekend date for a Signature Portrait Session, please let us know.

WHAT TO WEAR

Clothing is a key element for beautiful, timeless portraits. Babies are cutest in their bare bottoms. We have our own selection of blankets, wraps, bonnets and dainty headbands, but we recommend shopping on Etsy.com if you have a particular accessory in mind. You can search for “newborn photography props,” and you’ll find LOTS of adorable options. As for parents, we love skin-on-skin for intimate newborn portraits. A lace camisole or a strapless dress for Mommy. A bare chest or fitted button-down shirt for Daddy. We recommend simple, classic apparel that reflects your style. Neutrals and creams with touches of pastels for a soft, gentle feel. Your Welcome Packet will provide lots of inspiration, but in the meantime, you can view some of our favorite outfits here:

HOW LONG WILL YOUR

SESSION LAST?

Newborn photography sessions generally last around two hours. There is plenty of time for nursing, soothing, and lots of cuddles. We strive to create a relaxed and peaceful environment, and our priority is always your comfort and the safety of your newborn. These sessions are delicate, and we patiently take the time to perfect each pose. Our gentle and detailed approach allows us to capture those precious moments that become the most beautiful, meaningful portraits.

Studio or

IN-HOME?

We offer fine art newborn portraits in our studio, or in the comfort of your home. Working in our studio allows us to photograph in a controlled environment, with the perfect lighting and room temperature that are so important to the success of a newborn session. Our Studio Portrait Session focuses on posed newborn portraits, although we’re always happy to capture a few family portraits.

 

We also offer our Signature Portrait Session for clients who love all of the studio-style newborn poses for birth announcements and wall art, but additionally desire to capture a variety of lifestyle baby and family portraits that incorporate the nursery and meaningful settings within the home. We will bring along portable lighting equipment, blankets and accessories to set up a studio in your home for the “classic” posed newborn portraits.

ARTISTIC EDITING

Following your photo session, we select the best images for artistic editing. We devote time to carefully compare hundreds of photos from your shoot and select only the ones that meet our standards. These final images are each individually processed and enhanced into a true work of art.
