Newborn sessions are for newborns - 3 months old


Newborn Session {445}


Included in your session are 15 custom edited photos of your choosing on a custom CD and custom photo Flash Drive with a limited copyright release for printing. You will also receive fifteen 5x7 proof prints. An online, private, professional print order friendly browsing album where you and your family and friends can view and purchase professional prints at your leisure.


Babies generally are a little happier in familiar surroundings so I offer "in home" sessions. As a mother myself I understand you may not want to leave the comfort of your home with a new baby.  The first 7-10 days after birth is the best time for newborn photos because they are still in their "sleepy stage", are more pliable at this age and not bothered as much when modeling for their photos. Natural light is the best form for newborn photos. Think of which area in your home would have the best natural light source. Large windows and sliding glass doors are a few good examples. 


I supply props such as your custom knit, baskets, blankets and backdrops but I encourage you to find things in your home that are also special to you. By including things like grandma's pearls or Daddy's first baseball we are capturing something that is truly unique and you. 


Expect to set aside 2-4 hours of time for your newborn session. It is not uncommon for photographers to spend more time on these. There is much preparation that goes into your little one's photos before, during and editing time afterwards. Newborns are delicate both physically and emotionally, safety is of the upmost importance. I never rush my newborn sessions. We simply do not know how baby will be feeling at the time of his/her photos, modeling can be hard work! So we leave time for nursing, burping, spit ups, diaper changes and clean up, and we take advantage of sleepy time and happy awake time. 


Your little one is a part of a family, therefore your newborn session is not just for baby. The entire immediate family, including siblings, pets, mommy and daddy are all invited to join for photos. 


Your little one's newborn photos are an investment in your future. Newborn prices are typically higher than your average photo session because of the time and preparation that goes into them. I am aware that these prices can be straining financially, which is why I offer customized payment plans to fit your needs. I would rather have the opportunity to capture these moments for you, then have you regret later not having them. Please contact me to put together an affordable payment plan for you. 


Due to the preparation that goes into your newborn session I ask that you would book your newborn session as early as possible, preferably a month at the latest. Of course, unless you having a planned birth date, most often we do not know when your little one will make their grand entrance so I leave a broad 2 week window both before and after your due date. A warm home (between 85-95 degree Farenheit) is optimal, so please prepare ahead of time by turning your thermostat up about 30 minutes prior to your session time. A good natural light source like a large window or sliding glass door is also needed, please let me know if you do not feel your home has a good natural light source and I will bring lighting equiptment.
