Newborn Sessions

Create lasting memories of your baby’s first days.

Embrace The Purest Moments of Your Baby's Early Days & Hold Them Close to Your Heart Forever.

Congratulations on your new bundle of joy! A newborn photography session is a wonderful way to capture those fleeting moments of your newborn baby’s life. During the first few weeks, your baby will change and grow so quickly, and a newborn session will allow you to capture those precious moments and memories that will fondly look back on.

To ensure that I can accommodate your newborn session, it’s recommended that you book in advance, ideally during your pregnancy. I will block off time before and after your due date, providing flexibility to schedule your session once your baby arrives. Once baby is here, send me a message and we will solidify a day that is best for you!

Once baby arrives, it is recommended that the photography session occurs within the first two weeks of life, as it is easier to pose your baby into those sweet little positions and when baby is most sleepy. If your little one is older than that timeframe, no worries! It’s still possible to capture beautiful photos!

Babies are expensive, so let’s save you some money! Our bundled maternity and newborn photography packages offer savings while capturing the entire journey of motherhood from bump to baby. Enjoy consistent quality and style from pregnancy to your baby’s first days, along with priority scheduling. Secure a beautiful, cohesive collection of memories at a reduced cost.

Frequently Asked Questions

To ensure that you secure a spot for your newborn photography session, I recommend booking as early as possible. My calendar fills up quickly, and I only take a limited number of sessions each month to leave space for babies that arrive earlier or later than their anticipated due date. If you are interested, please don’t hesitate to send me an email to check availability and reserve your spot!

I provide everything needed for your newborn photography session, so you don’t have to worry about bringing anything. I have a wide variety of headbands, wraps and props available to use, and I always style each session individually based on your preferences. My photography style is minimal, neutral, and simple, but I welcome your input on color choices. If there is something specific you would like to include in the session, such as a handmade blanket, heirloom items, sports memorabilia, or military/law enforcement items, please let me know in advance so that I can prepare for it. I always do my best to incorporate special items into the session to make it truly unique and personalized.

Please allow up to four weeks to return your gallery. 

Newborn photography sessions can take longer than other types of photo shoots due to the need for frequent soothing and care of the baby. Typically, these sessions will last a minimum of 2-3 hours. I prioritize the baby’s comfort and safety above all else, and will never rush the session or force the baby into poses that are uncomfortable. I allow for plenty of breaks and take as much time as needed to ensure that the baby is happy and content throughout the session.

For newborn photography sessions, I typically schedule them to take place between 6-16 days after the baby is born. This is because during this time, babies are more likely to be sleepy and easier to pose, resulting in more beautiful and polished photos. However, if your baby is older than this timeframe, there is no need to worry. I can still capture stunning photos! I will just have a different approach with older babies.

After you schedule your newborn photography session, I will add your due date to my calendar to tentatively plan around it. If your baby is born earlier or later than expected, there is always room to adjust the schedule accordingly. Once your baby is born, I kindly request that you notify me as soon as possible, so we can coordinate a definite date and time for the session that works best for you and your baby.

 

To secure your spot on my calendar for your newborn photography session, I kindly request a retainer fee of $100. As I only take a limited number of sessions each month to allow for flexibility in accommodating babies that arrive early or late, this retainer ensures that your due date is reserved. The remaining balance for the session is due the day of your session, and I accept both cash and credit card payments.
