Maternity and Newborn sessions are the beginning of my relationship with many of the families I work with. We work together on choosing style, theme, colors and poses/angles you love, and by doing this I get to know how you like to be photographed and what images you appreciate the most.
There are a variety of options for these sessions.
Maternity photos can be done in-studio for that bright and airy look with white sheers, backlit bellies and fun props to add some color and style. We can also do maternity portraits outside in a natural landscape, dressed either casually, or in a custom made maternity gown and hair piece like a floral crown for that "Mother Nature" style that is so stunning. I am very flexible because this is all "my style" and I would love to tailor a session to your style as well.
Newborn sessions at the hospital are called "Fresh 48" Sessions because we usually do them within the first two days, and the babies are quite fresh, still wrinkly and flakey and totally adorable! For these sessions I use NO PROPS, just baby in some simple blanket wraps. We can use the original hospital blankets, or you can bring some light neutral ones from home, I would suggest to stick with neutrals and plain patterns. I don't do any posing of these 2 day old babies, aside from swaddling.
Studio sessions are where we bring all the props in. If you have a nursery theme, family occupation, sports theme, hobby or favorite childhood book you want to incorporate, just let me know. I can either custom make or order the props we'll need (most of them) or direct you exactly where to order something for the set. I have MANY MANY MANY props we can use, but I also love to use props brought from home. I would check with me first before splurging on a bunch of newborn props you'll only use once, I might have them 🙂 We can photograph either Just Baby or Family with a studio newborn session.
Home newborn sessions are different than studio sessions in a lot of ways. We incorporate fewer studio props into a home session, and instead use more items from your home and the nursery. The family shots are typically less "posed",more candid and include a lot of home life photos with your newborn and other children. I bring a few props from the studio to make sure we get those perfect little setups, but we spend most of the time doing pictures in the nursery, playroom, outdoors (Weather permitting) and really anywhere in the house that has beautiful light.
I know timing is critical when it comes to newborn photography, so I am sure to schedule your session within 5-14 days old. I also RUSH your images so we can get started on your newborn announcements. I will typically have your proofs available within one week, and I'm happy to come to your home to view the proofs since I know leaving the house with a newborn is difficult. We'll view proofs, choose the favorites and plan the final products, be it Albums, Wall Art, Gift Prints and digital options. Everything will arrive at your door in 2ish weeks ready to hang, display and enjoy with your family.
