PATIENCEWorking with, and posing newborns takes lots of time to perfect. This is why newborn sessions require a longer time frame for a session. Some babies are sensitive and require a little more soothing between and/or during posing.
SAFETY AT ALL TIMESYour new baby is precious, and I have been trained in newborn safety. I am an APNPI (Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International) qualified newborn photographer and have passed a safety qualification with this organization who specialize in newborn safety. I make sure props are weighted properly, and spotters are used when posing baby in props. I will Photoshop out any helping hands, which are always near and/or supporting your baby. Composite images are used for some poses and photoshopped together to create some of the final images you see.
ACCESSORIES & FINISHING TOUCHESI provide everything needed for your session; soft blankets and wraps, pillows, props, and tiny stuffed animals. Of course, you may bring a special item to be photographed with baby. Most newborns do not have perfect skin: flaky bits, baby acne, stork bites, angel kisses - I am happy to reduce or remove the appearance of these things if you desire.
For newborn sessions I offer a few different options: Petite session. This session is great for photos of just baby as it is a shorter session. It is a more baby-led session (less structured poses, more wrapped and posing that is easy on the time frame) Every baby's personality is different, and some will sleep and pose easily, others require more time and soothing. It's perfect for creating a gallery of 12 images for you to cherish.Simplicity Session. This session is perfect for adding in some photos of mom & dad & baby. It offers more time to be able to add in these poses, and make sure baby is comfortable and happy. It will create a gallery of 20 images, including posed baby, and family poses. Siblings may be added into this session as well. Printed Newborn. I highly recommend this session! It's perfect for clients who would like some printed products along with their digital files. It includes all the time needed for a posed newborn session with family images (including any siblings). It is a complete package with an 11x14 ready to frame and 5 gift prints to keep and display or give away to family, as well as 25 custom designed photo birth announcements.Luxe Newborn. My absolute favourite as it includes an album, which is the most popular and requested item I have! There is nothing more perfect than a heirloom newborn album to pass down. It's one of those things that gain value as time goes on and your baby grows up. It includes all the time we need for a posed newborn session with family images (including any siblings) and your gallery fi images will be put into a custom designed album.
ALL options come with printed 5x7's to match your gallery images, so you will always have professionally printed photos to go along with your files.
