Baby Love Sessions

Baby Love.  Fresh, pure, new, delicate, tiny, LOVE.

Newborn Session 

Newborn Sessions are a wonderful way to capture those first weeks of life.  Never again will your baby be as tiny as they are now, able to curl up into those precious poses or be held in the palm of your hands.  The session takes place in the studio space where the lighting is controlled and the environment is calm and inviting.  The room temperature is a warm 78 degrees and comfortable for newborns, which keeps baby nice and sleepy and helps keep their skin from getting splotchy.  The session can last 2-3 hours which allows time for soothing and feeding in between poses.  Safety is my number one concern and will always be foremost when posing.  I will never force a baby to get into a pose that they are not capable or willing to be in.  Every baby is different and I let them take the lead on the direction the session is going.  There is no need to buy special clothing,  I photograph newborns naked and use soft, natural linens with neutral colors and beautiful textures.  You will have access to all of my wraps, linens, knits, bonnets and accessories.  I use coordinating baskets, vintage style crates and simple backdrops that will provide you with beautiful images you'll cherish for a lifetime. If you have something special you would like to incorporate, please let me know.

 

Whether this is your first baby or you have already had the pleasure of being a mother, I want to say congratulations on this beautiful journey they call motherhood and forever having the feeling of your heart walking around outside of your body.  

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Frequently asked questions

WHEN DO YOU TAKE NEWBORN PHOTOS?

Newborn photos with a full term baby are typically taken 7-12 days after birth.  Every baby is different, you may want to wait a bit longer with multiples.

WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE THE NEWBORN SESSION? 

You should schedule the session a month or so before your expected due date. We can set a tentative date and can change things if needed as we get closer. 

 

WHEN SHOULD I CONTACT YOU?

Please contact me within 24 hours of the birth.  We will need to make sure we have the schedule confirmed and everything is moving along as planned.  

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO THE SESSION?

Please come as comfortable as possible.  You can show up in your comfiest clothes with no makeup and your hair undone.  I am a mother and I know that you are exhausted and sleep deprived at this time.  If you are wanting to be in the photos, you can bring your clothing and freshen up at the session or come ready to go, its entirely up to you.  You may want to bring an extra change of clothes because one of us is going to get pee'd or pooped on!  It's usually me but you never know :)
