Newborn
The Experience
Celebrate your Legacy
You don’t understand what love is, until you hold your newborn baby in your arms for the first time. The love is overpowering. There is nothing else like it. This is your baby, your greatest achievement, your Legacy.
The Newborn Experience
As a mother of four, I understand how hard the first few days are after bringing home your baby. Caring for a little one 24/7 can be exhausting. Which is I decided to create a luxury newborn portrait experience for my clients making it as easy as possible for families. Newborn sessions are done in my studio which is very comfortable for baby and new parents. Dads can enjoy some quiet time watching netflix; new mamas get pampered with hair and makeup while I create some beautiful portraits of your baby. Simply, all parents need to do is to arrive into the studio and then we take care of everything from there.
Each of my session types include a variety of poses of baby creating both artistic wall worthy images as well as capturing baby’s tiny precious details.
The ideal time to photograph a newborn baby is as early as 3 days of age to about 21 days, although there is some exceptions. If Dad will be home from work for the first few days with baby, I highly recommend scheduling your session during a weekday.
Regardless of the session you choose; all my sessions are baby led. This means safety and the baby’s comfort is my first priority, getting the perfect image comes second to this. I will follow the baby’s cues for hunger, distress and discomfort. In no way do I ever put the baby in a situation where she is unsafe or uncomfortable. Although this may seem obvious, unfortunately it is not a common practice. Combined with the experience of shooting hundreds of newborns as well as raising my own children, parents can rest at ease knowing that their baby is in good hands.
