Newborn Session Information
There’s something very special about capturing the beauty of a newborn to create a lifetime of memories, and for that reason, I love doing newborn shoots! Once you have your little miracle you’ll notice day-by-day how quickly they change. Because the days immediately after your baby’s birth will understandably be overwhelming, I suggest you book your newborn session while you’re still pregnant. We will set some time aside in my schedule around your due date, and as the date approaches, we will be in touch. My aim is to photograph newborns in the first 7-14 days of life, so we can capture your new arrival when they’re still curling up as they might’ve in the womb (since it makes for beautiful photos!). At the two-week mark, babies will go through their first growth spurt, have more awake time, and may start to develop baby eczema, gassy stomachs, baby acne and colic. That doesn’t mean we can’t capture wonderful moments of a two-week-old (or older) newborn, so if the idea of a newborn session occurs to you after the 14-day mark, let me know and we will create beautiful baby pictures together. Even with baby acne, there are always ways to get around it. :)
As you can see I will retouch every picture of your little one before it will be uploaded to your final gallery. I will also hand edit all your final family and sibling pictures so that you will be absolutely happy and satisfied with the resulting product.
Posed Studio Sessions
Newborn sessions take place in my Milford studio (06460). Studio photography will include posed shots, focused on your new baby and can include props such as buckets, baskets, bowls. During the session, I’ll constantly be taking care to ensure your newborn is completely comfortable, as this is the sort of close attention that will result in the best images for you. You will notice that I’ll also very delicately ensure that every finger and toe is displayed and positioned for a beautiful portrait pose before I click the shutter. Due to all the detail and care that goes into a newborn session, it can last up to 3 hours.
