Newborn Sessions

As a former pediatrician, I find that newborns are absolutely my favorite photography sessions! Nothing is better than snuggling with  a new baby and celebrating all their perfect and unique features (and personality) with you!

Ideally, we will start planning your newborn’s session together before your baby arrives. Newborn sessions are best scheduled when babies are under 10 days of age. If you are interested in a newborn session, please contact me today. I book a limited number of sessions monthly so as to provide the best experience and highest quality images for you. When you book your session while still pregnant, your newborn has priority in my schedule based on his/her tentative due date. As you approach your delivery date we will stay in contact with each other to narrow down potential session dates. As you leave the hospital we will finalize your appointment date and time. I do encourage you to not book any doctors appointments on the day of your session in case your session runs longer than expected.

Newborn sessions take place in my comfortable home studio, heated to the perfect temperature to keep baby happy and sleepy. I provide all the props, wraps, headbands, etc. needed to design a beautiful session which showcases your sweet miracle… your baby! To see more images from my studio, please visit my Studio Share at National Association of Professional Child Photographers.

When you book your session, I will send you a Newborn Portrait Session packet to prepare you more on what to expect and how you can prepare yourself and your baby on the morning of your session. After the session, I will hand edit your pictures, which will be conveniently delivered 2-3 weeks in a online gallery. Prints, canvases and wooden photo blocks can be ordered if you choose after your gallery is delivered.
