As you anticipate the arrival of your baby it is exciting to start thinking about capturing the details of his/her little nose and toes. I want to make this experience as comfortable and relaxing as I can for both baby and parents. I offer TWO different newborn sessions. First 48 or Lifestyle.
Each Session Includes a custom newborn portrait session that takes place in the comfort of your home or place of birth. Newborn sessions feature the newborn and his or her immediate family and usually last around an hour to an hour and a half. You will get ALL the high resolution digital images from your session as well as a complimentary custom luxury album from your session. I will design and deliver a beautiful custom album that you will be able to cherish and pass down for generations to come.
A lifestyle session is a casual session done in the comfort of your own home. I will capture the details of your new life with baby around the house. This includes photos of baby with mom, dad and siblings (including fur siblings) snuggled up to baby.
This session is to capture the first 48 hours of the baby's life. I will visit you in the location where baby was delivered and capture those special moments and details of the first 48 hours of the baby's life. All photos will be taken in the location where you delivered the baby and include photos of mom, dad and siblings.
When to book your session?
-I know how crazy life can be the first few months after baby is born, so I want to make this whole experience as easy as I can on everyone involved. The sooner you book your session the better. It's ok if you don't know your EXACT due date, we can book around your due date and adjust the date once baby arrives. By doing this, we can make sure to book your session within 5-12 days after the birth of your baby. The newer the baby, the better the session. Those little cuties sleep the best during the first few days of life, so booking within this time frame will be ideal!
A few “newborn strategies” for a successful session:
-A well fed baby is a happy baby. Feed, feed and feed your baby before your session. You want them in a "milk drunk" sleepy state.
-Keep baby in a diaper or plain white onesie for your Lifestyle or First-48 Session. I don't want anything to take away from the details of the baby.
-Sit back, relax and take in this special moment! Let me do all the work. I will be guiding you during our session together and I'll be the one moving around to get the perfect angle. Very little work will be done by you, except enjoying the moment with your new little family.
