About Newborn Sessions
Congratulations on the new addition to your family! Having a newborn baby is such an exciting time that passes all too quickly. It can be intimidating trying to find a photographer to hire for your baby's first photography session. Newborn photography is my passion. I've been photographing families in the Raleigh, NC area for many years and I would love the opportunity to photograph yours.
My style can best be described as natural, organic, and beautifully simple. I love to incorporate nature with outdoor newborn sessions. For indoor sessions, I prefer neutral colors and earth tones to put the emphasis on your baby.
The best time to schedule a newborn portrait session is while you are still pregnant. All you need is your due date to book a session. The exact session date can be set up later.
Once you book your session, I like to have a pre-consultation with my clients. This can be done over the phone, in email, or in some cases, in person. As your photographer, I want to know about what styles of props you prefer, any poses that you especially like, and the colors and theme of your nursery or any other room where you may be displaying your portraits.
Newborn sessions are done in your own home, during the the week at a time of day when your baby is typically most sleepy. For most sessions this means starting around 9:30 AM. Sessions normally last anywhere from 2-4 hours Immediate family members, such as parents and siblings, are welcome to join in the newborn session. I have a portable studio that I will bring to your home, including backdrops and props. The only thing you need to supply is a warm space in your home with a nice bright window. Newborn portraits are usually mostly done without clothes, to show off those precious newborn features.
Safety is the top priority with newborn sessions. All backdrops and props will be freshly washed in dye-free, fragrance-free soap. I will always wash my hands thoroughly before handling the baby. All poses will be chosen with safety in mind. I will not attempt any pose that I do not feel is safe for your baby.
Outdoor Newborn Sessions
If you are looking for a perfectly unique type of newborn portrait for your family, I offer outdoor newborn sessions for families in the Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Holly Springs and surrounding areas. These special sessions can take place at one of the my many recommended beautiful outdoor locations in our area from April through October. This hard-to-find custom experience is my specialty and passion. I am one of only a few newborn photographers in the state of North Carolina who offer this type of session. This style of newborn photography combines the beauty of nature with the beauty of a freshly born baby. Outdoor newborn sessions create outstanding artwork for your home.
Outdoor newborn sessions last about 2 hours and include a focus on your baby with the possibility or 1-2 family poses.
