Newborn... that word brings up so many amazing memories for me. The smell of a newborn's head. The tiny feet. The cuddles. Learning to feed them. Remembering how it felt the first time they had the hiccups on "the outside." The first bath. The first ride home, praying you have the baby car seat in the right way. The sweet newborn cry... okay so that can go either way. They only cry like a newborn for the first few months though, then their cry matures. They grow. From the very first minute they start to grow, and they don't stop. I think of my four babies who aren't babies anymore. They have grown so quickly. My oldest is eleven. I remember when I turned eleven, so how in the world do I have an eleven-year-old?!
New babies grow so quickly, so let's document the first moments of their life with timeless, professional photographs that you will adore forever. There is nothing I love more than capturing the beautiful moments of a newborn baby’s first weeks. I choose simple poses and minimal props, and I use a lot of neutral colors. This keeps the focus on your newborn baby, to create timeless portraits of your little one.
Newborn portrait sessions are done in my studio space in downtown LaGrange, GA. Newborn photographs are typically taken 7-14 days after birth. I am only able to take on a limited number of newborn sessions per month, so please contact me to book before your baby comes. If your sweet little one has already arrived, no worries! Give me a call to see if I can squeeze you in.
When should I book my newborn session? The absolute best time to photograph a newborn is within their first fourteen days of life. This helps to make sure the baby is still sleepy and curls into those perfect newborn positions we all love. Baby acne and fussiness are often less likely to show themselves at this point. Contact me at any time during your pregnancy with your estimated due date. We will set a date based on that day, then we can adjust once you have delivered.
Where does the session take place? The session will take place in my studio in LaGrange, GA. The studio set to the perfect temperature and all props will be ready to go.
How long will my session take? The session typically takes 2-3 hours. We take our time to follow baby's lead. I provide a comfortable place to feed with a feeding pillow. I also provide light snacks and bottled water. I recommend feeding your little one when you get to the studio. That will give us the maximum amount of time in front of the camera. Of course, I know all babies are born with a mind of their own. If you have to feed before coming in, no worries. We will work around baby's schedule.
How long after the session will it take to see my images? 2-3 weeks after the session I will contact you to set up your reveal session. I can come to your home, or you can come back to the studio to place your order. As a mom, I understand how busy we all get, especially after having a new baby. I want each family to walk away with at least a few images printed out that they can hang immediately, or gift to grandparents. That is why I offer an additional print package for my newborn sessions. Just ask me for details!
Do you offer payment plans? Absolutely! I know what it is like to have a new little one. Everything is stretched, your sleep, your body, and your wallet. I work with growing families to make sure they have the photographs they desire, but I don't expect the entire fee to be paid at once. There is not an additional fee for a payment plan on newborn sessions or collections.
