Congratulations! Newborns are my favorite subjects to photograph, because I LOVE capturing those first few precious images of your new son or daughter, from their little fingers to their tiny toes. These photos will become keepsakes for you and your little one.
Newborns are best photographed within the first 10 days of life, when they are still mostly sleepy and are able to be moved and placed into the cute poses you see. Because of this, it’s best to book your newborn session during your pregnancy to ensure a spot on the calendar while we wait for their arrival. Since babies are rarely predictable, we will choose a few tentative dates for the session and schedule a firm date once your baby has arrived.
Newborn photography sessions generally last between 2 to 4 hours, allowing plenty of time to feed, change, and cuddle your baby. Sessions are held in the comfort and convenience of your own home. I work on the baby’s schedule with their comfort and safety a priority, so plan to have a fun and relaxing session.
