Photographing newborns is my passion. I spend a lot of time getting every little finger and toe positioned perfectly when photographing your little bundle. First and foremost, it is important to me for your baby look comfortable and peaceful in the photographs and to look like a piece of art. I do love for my photos to appear timeless but do welcome a splash of trendiness in my work.
When arriving at the studio, be prepared to just sit back and enjoy the session. I will take over as soon as you arrive, undressing baby and getting him/her used to me. I will feed baby during the session if you are not opposed to bringing a bottle (expressed breast milk or formula). If you are exclusively nursing, that is perfectly fine. We can take as many breaks as we need to keep your newborn calm. Also, a pacifier is a great way to soothe baby during the session so feel free to bring one if your baby takes one. Many newborns are gassy; to ease their discomfort I ask that you bring a bottle of gas drops to the session just in case. Gas drops are safe for the newest of babies.
My studio is kept at 80 degrees to keep baby comfortable for the session as they will be nude for a majority of it. So feel free to dress in layers or dress light.
I will play white noise during your session to mimic the sounds of the womb and shushing.
There will be accidents and I’m perfectly fine with that. Almost every newborn I photograph does have an accident on my backdrops. I’m not a modest person at all and keep on rolling. So please don’t worry about that.
Be prepared to spend up to 3 hours at my studio.
