Those first few weeks after your child is born are life changing. It’s as if your whole world has opened up and you’ve discovered that life wasn’t as bright or colorful before your baby entered the world.
Because everyones wishes are different, I offer different types of newborn sessions. All of my newborn sessions always include a series of photographs taken of just the newborn. For example, I like to get details of wee little feet, a tiny hand clasped around dad’s finger, that button nose and tuft of fluffy hair. In addition to the details, I’ll also photograph your newborn resting peacefully. Perhaps in a cozy, comfortable nook or on top of the blanket he’ll sleep with for years to come. My camera knows no bounds. This could be done in my studio or at your home.
During the lifestyle session, I want to capture what you’re feeling. I want to document the looks exchanged between mother, father and baby. Those are moments so precious that you can’t even describe them with the letters of the alphabet. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I contend that a picture is worth far more. A picture captures impalpable essence.
Now, I know you’re going to be exhausted after all that pushing. The best part about the newborn session, though, is the fact that you don’t have to do anything but show up. I’ll even come to you! Just tell me where to drive and I’ll be there right on time with all my props and equipment and an eagerness to capture meaningful images of your sweet little angel. Remember, the emphasis here is on your newborn, so your little one will be the star of the day.
As for scheduling your newborn photos, when we take them is your decision. Because that “newborn look” tends to fade quickly, newborn photographs are typically taken in the first 14 days of their new little lives. To book your session, contact me as soon as you know you want to have the session made by Divi Design and tell me when you’re expected to give birth. You contact me when your bundle of joy has arrived and we pick a date and time!
