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. I will make the process as simple as possible for you and will guide you every step of the way. 

The best time for newborn photos is between 7 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 last 2-3 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 $149 is required to book your session and secure your session date. This retainer will secure your spot on my calendar, includes the use of the outfits and props for baby, access to dresses for mom, wardrobe planning for the family, and complimentary hair and make up for mom. Digital files and products are purchased separately after the session.  

After your session, you will view the proofs and decide which images you would like to purchase. You may choose from wall canvases, framed prints, photo books, and digital image collections. Collections start at $499.   

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.
