Posed Newborn Sessions involve your sweetly sleeping baby + natural light and neutral tones. My focus is on creating timeless images for you to remember your baby just as he or she is. These sessions are done in the comfort of your own home, and I bring everything we need – soft blankets, bonnets, wraps and tiny headbands. Please look through my Posed Newborn portfolio to view the type of “poses” and props I work with.
If simplicity in newborn photography and desire to capture details and your baby sleeping in peaceful natural positions is what you seek, we are a fabulous fit.
Traditionally, Posed Newborn Sessions are focused primarily on baby, with a small handful (3-4 images max) to include parents and/or siblings. This type of Session is best done within the first 14 days after birth, as fresh newborns move less and remain asleep far easier, and for longer stretches of time.
To book, simply contact me either via email, phone, or my website!
It is best to inquire at least 8 weeks before your due date to ensure availability, but I recommend reserving your Session as soon as possible since I only take a limited amount of Newborn Sessions per month. A $200 non-refundable down payment is required to hold your spot, which will be applied towards the Session balance. A signed Contract & Client Information Form will also need to be filled out at the time of booking before a date is tentatively scheduled into my calendar.
Once you deliver, simply contact me within 48 hours so we can finalize the date & time of your Posed Newborn Session.
Please take a few moments to read through my FAQs and look through my posed newborn portfolio to really get familiar with my style and process, and don’t be shy about contacting me via phone or email should you have further questions.
You will also receive a Newborn Welcome Guide to walk you through session prep, the day of the Session, and what to expect after we are done.
Once I arrive, we will both take a quick tour of your home so I can find the best location to set up. I am primarily looking for the best lighting environment, so don’t worry about what’s in the background, or moving objects out of the way – I am happy to move furniture if need be.
During the Session, I will work one-on-one with your newborn, so you are welcome to sit back, relax, and watch (or take a nap!). I have several years of experience with newborn soothing and relaxation techniques, so am comfortable calming baby if they start to become a bit fussy. I will, however, need your help if baby is hungry. but the rest of the time is yours to enjoy!
Once the session is over, you will receive a sneak peek of what we accomplished!
About 3 weeks after our Session, you will get a pretty little email in your inbox that contains a link to your password-protected online gallery so you can view your images. From the gallery you can place a print order from my professional lab (personally fulfilled by yours truly to ensure there aren’t any issues), as well as share it with family and friends to gush over your little one’s precious face.
Your flash drive will arrive in the mail about a week after receiving your online gallery. Should you wish to use those digital files to print images on your own, I recommend using MPix.
