There is nothing sweeter than the birth of a child! Those first few weeks are so awe-inspiring (and exhausting). You want to capture every tiny detail before they start growing. A newborn session is the perfect way to do this.
The best time for newborn photos is between 5 and 17 days old. Why? Well, because they are still so sleepy and so easy to pose. After 17 days, it's much more difficult to get those squishy, sleepy photos because they are much more alert. It's still possible, but not as likely. I'll still be able to capture beautiful images of your baby after 17 days, but some of the more challenging poses may not be possible.
Most sessions can last up to 3 hours and is fully dependent upon the cooperation of the baby. Plenty of time is allowed for feeding, cuddling, soothing, and changing baby. Patience is required for really beautiful shots. I keep the temperature of my studio very warm and play white noise to ensure the comfort of your bundle of joy.
My number one priority is the safety and comfort of your baby. I have been trained in newborn safety and have been accredited through Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International.
I have all sorts of newborn outfits and props available for use. All you have to bring is baby! We'll be in touch before your session to discuss your nursery colors and prop preferences.
Your session will take place in my studio in Port Charlotte, FL.
A non-refundable retainer of $50 is required to book your session and secure your session date. The balance is due the day of your session. We will book your session based on your due date, knowing it might change if baby is early or late. Getting on my calendar allows me to leave extras times available just in case the date needs to change. My calendar fills up very quickly, so it's very important to book at least 2-3 few months in advance to be guaranteed a spot.
3-4 days after your session you will receive a link to view your unedited proofs. This allows you to have complete control over what images you choose. After you have chosen your favorites to be edited, the fully retouched images will be delivered to you in 20-30 days.
