Newborn Session Planning Consultation

Before we officially book your session, we want to make sure we understand exactly what you’re looking for. We’ll have a thorough discussion where we’ll delve into all the details of your session. We want to know your vision, your expectations, and any specific preferences you have in mind. This way, we can tailor the session to perfectly suit your desires and create images that truly reflect your unique style.

Once you’re on our calendar, we’ll schedule a planning consultation. This is where the fun begins! We’ll work together to plan the perfect color scheme for your newborn pictures. Whether you prefer soft pastels, vibrant hues, or something in between, we’ll make sure the colors used in your photos align with your vision. Additionally, we’ll assist you in selecting wardrobe options that will beautifully complement the final product. We want you and your newborn to look and feel amazing in every shot.

The day of your newborn session

On the day of the session, you can relax knowing that your precious bundle of joy is in safe hands. With our expertise and experience, we’ll skillfully pose your newborn in a way that ensures their utmost comfort. We believe in baby-led poses, meaning we prioritize your baby’s well-being above all else. We’ll create a soothing and secure environment, allowing your newborn to peacefully sleep or joyfully interact with the surroundings.

Our goal is not only to capture beautiful images of your newborn but also to document the special bond between you and your baby. Towards the end of the session, we’ll take the opportunity to photograph you together with your little one. If you have older children, we’ll also capture precious sibling moments. We’re even happy to include grandparents and small pets in the photoshoot, because we understand the importance of capturing the whole family in these cherished moments.

Newborn Session props

When it comes to props, we’ve got you covered. Our studio provides an array of props to enhance the visual appeal of your photos. You won’t need to worry about bringing anything unless you have a specific family heirloom or sentimental item you’d like to incorporate. If that’s the case, we’ll discuss it prior to the session, making sure to incorporate it seamlessly into the shoot.

Your Newborn session gallery

After the session, we’ll schedule a reveal appointment. This is the exciting part! You’ll have the opportunity to see all the stunning images we’ve captured. We’ll guide you through the selection process, helping you choose your favorite images that you’ll cherish for a lifetime. Whether you’re looking for prints, canvases, or digital copies, we offer a variety of options to suit your preferences.

Portrait products from your newborn session

Once you’ve made your selections and placed your order, we’ll get to work creating your chosen products. Our leather albums featuring this incredible part of your life is the most ordered and treasured product. Our clients also love our reveal and legacy folio boxes that feature 5 x7 matted into a 8×10 size fine art prints. Depending on the type of product you’ve chosen, you can expect your order to be ready within 2-6 weeks.
