Newborns are only “new” for a little while. I absolutely love having the opportunity to capture these adorable little people during that incredibly special period of time. I take newborn photos within the first two weeks of life…preferably within the first 10 days. Photographing them during this time period enables me to capture those sleepy poses we all know and love. After two weeks, newborns tend to become a little more aware of their surroundings and realize they don’t exactly like the idea of being posed naked in a bucket!
I encourage expectant moms to contact me in their second trimester to book their session. I take on a limited number of clients per month and am typically booked a few months in advance. I book my clients based on their expected delivery date. As a NICU nurse, I am well aware that babies come whenever they want, whether that be earlier or later than expected. I am happy to work around any unexpected changes- just keep me posted! Once I have your due date on my calendar, you simply need to contact me ASAP when your baby is born. We will then narrow down the best day/time for the newborn session within that 2 week time frame.
Newborn sessions take place in my home-studio in Downingtown, Pennsylvania and last anywhere from 2-3 hours depending on how cooperative the new little one decides to be. My sessions focus primarily on the newborn with a few additional photos to include Mom, Dad and older siblings, if desired.
