My style of Newborn Photography really captures the newness and beauty of a new baby.
My favorite photos are the simple and timeless portraits of baby all by themselves. I take the time to get baby comfortably and safely posed in just the right position to achieve those beautiful sleepy and curly poses that can only be captured during those fleeting early days of new life.
I also like to incorporate props into the session like baskets, wraps, bowls, chairs and other props to pose baby. I may even use Mom and Dad as a prop!
My goal in editing is a simple, clean and timeless image that has true to life colors.
I recommend booking your session early on in your pregnancy, preferably before the end of the second trimester to ensure I am available when your baby arrives. I take on a limited number of newborn sessions each month to ensure I give my clients the attention that they deserve.
The best time to schedule your newborn's session is between 10-14 days old for the best chance of sleepy and curly portraits, although I will photograph newborns at any age.
I will provide all the props, blankets, headbands and hats but if there are any special family treasures, heirlooms or something you just want photographed with baby we will certainly try to incorporate it. If you see something in particular from my galleries that you would like to use, please be sure to mention it to me before your session.
Some other items that you should plan to bring to your session include:
- Extra milk/formula
- Burp Clothes
- Snacks for mom (and/or dad too!)
* If you can, bring the pacifier the hospital sent you home with. It’s the bendable one that won’t leave any marks. Even if you haven’t used one, just for the 2 hours that I’m posing baby can really help.
If possible, keep baby awake for the few hours beforehand and plan on feeding baby as soon as you arrive at the studio. It will be at least 80 degrees in the studio. Due to this I am dressed for a warm few hours and suggest you do the same! If you would like to be in parent shots, please come dressed and ready to go. If siblings are to be included in any shots, please have your spouse/grandparent bring them at the end of the session.
Most sessions last between 2-3 hours all depending on how sleepy baby is. I take my time making sure that every little finger and toe is positioned just right! Baby will be photographed in the nude so please expect messes and bring plenty of wipes and diapers (and a change of clothes for you too!).
Two weeks after your photo shoot I invite you back to my studio and will present to you the best images. At your reveal you will decide which images you can't live without and we customize your order!
When you sign your contract with me, a non-refundable retainer fee will be required. Payments can be given by cash, credit card or check. An 8.5% Surprise, Arizona tax will be added to all retainers, session fees, prints, products and digitals.
