Tag Archives: Newborn Photography
Last week, I was so excited to have the chance to photograph Baby Stella for her big debut into the world. She came to the studio at three days old to have her first photoshoot. (secretly I think she may have a future in front of the camera because she did a few ‘poses’ of her own. ) I was also very proud of mom and dad, they kept calm and didn’t stress while we working. (Babies can sense this.) They also took all of my advice to heart from the beginning of our first meeting to prepare for this session so everything went extremely smoothly. Preparation in advance is a good thing!
If you are thinking (or know someone that would be thinking) about having newborn pictures taken like these, then you must schedule into our calendar BEFORE your due date. Typically, I would say that you would want to get a spot on our calendar 2-3 months before you due date so that I can make sure that I have room for you. Now, I understand that we don’t know for sure when your little one will arrive and that is ok! I place a ‘block’ in my calendar, not the actually session, so that I know that around that time Baby will make it’s arrival. Once Baby arrives, you make a quick call to schedule the actually session but if I don’t already have that ‘blocked’ off space for you, you may not be able to get in as early as you would like to get the poses that you see below. Newborns change very quickly, both in looks and activity, even after just a week! Do not miss out on the opportunity to have your little ones first moments captured.

Zayden was 10 days old when hecame to visit for his photo session. Such a sweet little man! I love doing newborn images. I am officially all done having children myself so this way I get to play with them a little bit and give them back (Just like Grandma!). But it always satisfies my itch to have a little one again, I mean who doesn’t want to hold a baby right? Ok, unless they have a smelly diaper. Ha! Newborns always take some time when doing their sessions. It isn’t something that you can hurry and get done. It is definitely done to their timing. I suggest to everyone that contacts me about newborn pictures to book your session before you actually have the baby. We will figure in time in our calendar right around the due date but it is completely flexible to how mom and baby are doing once they get home from the hospital. I think it is best to take pictures within the baby’s first week. They are still sleepy and are much easier topose. (They don’t realize that they have all this room out here yet!
