“a new baby is like the beginning of all things – wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities”. – Leshan
Newborn photography is a gift we are given by new parents. We get to meet and photograph little ones who have just arrived to this wonderful world of ours. It is not something we ever take lightly, we are preserving and capturing a moment that is so unbelievably fleeting by the time you’ve adjusted to it, it’s come to an end.
Newborn portraits are taken during the first 3 to 10 days of life, so it’s important to schedule these prior to giving birth. We can schedule windows of time, or at least be waiting to hear the fabulous news, because as we all know, newborns don’t usually come exactly when they’re expected. All of our maternity sessions include a newborn session, mostly because I just can’t wait to meet the wee one the moment they arrive!!!
We come to your home and work with natural window light. Great things to add to your newborn portraits are handmade blankets and hats, special newborn jewelry, silver rattles, special stuffed animals, etc. Anything heirloom or handmade is always perfect, we can use them to make the images even more special and treasured.
We always schedule about 3 hours for newborn sessions, we like for them to be well fed when we arrive, but expect they will need to be changed and fed during the session as well. Newborn sessions are never rushed, we take our cue from the planet’s new little member and photograph accordingly.
