Those Little fingers and toes
Capture the Moment
Bittersweet. There is no word in the English language more appropriate in describing parenthood than this. I’m a mother of three and I understand all too well how amazing and how hard and how emotional it is to watch your children grow up.
The days are long
But the years are short
The days (and nights) feel so long when you have a newborn, but I am here to tell you that your baby will be a toddler before you know it. Over time, the memories become fuzzy and photographs of your first days with your baby become invaluable. I am so passionate about capturing the fleeting time when you first welcome a new baby into your family. My goal for every newborn session is to create images that remind you how you felt during this time in your life.
Pricing & Packages
A pre-session consultation via phone is included in your session fee, during which we can discuss wardrobe, how to prepare your home and your vision for the session. We will schedule a tentative session time based on your due date and reschedule if necessary. Within three weeks after your session I will professionally edit and tone the very best images from our time together and upload them to an online gallery. Each photo will be presented in color and black & white. A typical newborn session yields about 50-60 unique images. Please inquire if you would like to see some sample galleries from my newborn clients.
Frequently Asked Questions
When should I schedule my newborn session?
There is no perfect time for a newborn session, but in general most take place within the first 1-2 weeks of birth. We book the session using your expected due date. Of course the date is tentative! Once your baby arrives we finalize the exact day and time.
I remind every single new parent: I’m a mom, too. I know how it feels to be only a few days or weeks postpartum. We’ll make your session happen when it works best for you and your family.
Where will my newborn session take place?
Your newborn session takes place in your home. Don’t worry, you don’t need to clean for me! Read my blog post about newborn sessions to get a sense of what to expect.
How long does a newborn session last?
Because I know that your new baby might get fussy or need to eat, I keep my schedule for newborn sessions very flexible. Most sessions last about 90 minutes.
Is it ok if siblings, pets, and/or my mother, join us for the newborn session?
Yes! Check out this blog post and this blog post to see some examples of sessions that included the whole family.
