GUIDE

newborn sessions

As parents ourselves, we understand the importance of capturing these special memories for your family. Newborns are only tiny for a short period of time, and there’s nothing sweeter than sleepy curled-up poses reminiscent of their time in the womb. There is no bigger honor as a photographer than capturing life’s most cherished memories. We love to capture the natural beauty and tender emotions of this special time as timeless works of art.

OUR SIGNATURE STYLE

We strive for a minimalistic, timeless, artistic aesthetic. Your sweet baby is always the focus of our images, accented with neutral tones and knit textures. Rest assured that our natural post-processing includes smoothing of skin and postpartum areas to make sure you look your best.

newborn retainer

We recommend reserving your newborn session as early as possible, since our calendar gets filled quickly. We only offer a limited number of commissions each month to ensure our high quality of work. We require a reservation to ensure availability around your due date. Newborn sessions are offered in the studio or comfort of your home, depending on your preferred package. You’ll simply be in touch once baby arrives to schedule your appointment. We'll take into consideration baby's birthday, birth weight, jaundice, and any other health concerns to determine the best timing for newborn portraits.

BLANKERTS, WRAPS

& accessories

We offer access to our blankets, wraps, swaddles, bonnets, hats, headbands and accessories for newborn sessions. Most of the items have been handmade by talented designers who put effort into ensuring the item is perfect for your newborn’s portraits. You can view samples featured in the Portfolio. Babies photograph best when naked or wrapped in soft fabrics. Our posing workflow allows us to transition smoothly and avoid disturbing baby from their deep sleep. While we are happy to incorporate a favorite outfit or heirloom, please understand that clothes tend to add bulk and detract from baby’s petite features.

WHAT TO BRING

We understand that new mamas are exhausted in the first weeks after giving birth. Our studio is set up so you can have a well deserved break. We’ll photograph baby right in front of you, while you get to relax and fully enjoy the beauty of your little miracle.

 

Please bring your diaper bag and anything else helpful to spend a few hours away from home. A swaddle and extra bottle of breast milk or formula will be helpful for any fussy points during the session.

centrally located

Our modern boutique photography studio allows us to offer a comfortable session experience, while delivering portraits of the highest quality. We use a combination of classic backdrops and artistic lighting to make your vision into a reality. Snacks and drinks are provided during your shoot. There is a reception area and fully stocked changing table available for your convenience.

We encourage you to relax and make yourself comfortable!

PARKING

We recommend planning your commute in advance and checking traffic conditions beforehand to arrive punctually for your shoot. Please understand that sessions will not be extended due to lateness.

HOME

We understand that it's challenging to travel in the first weeks after baby arrives. Our Signature and Luxe Newborn Sessions are offered in your home. We'll bring along studio lighting, space heater, blankets, knit wraps and accessories to set up a "studio" in your bedroom. We can use a bare wall (6-feet wide) as a seamless backdrop for intimate family portraits, and incorporate meaningful settings within your home for added variety.

what to wear

We’re always happy to capture some intimate family portraits to celebrate your new addition. We recommend wearing whites, creams, and neutral tones. Simple outfits without a busy pattern or logo are ideal. Classic never goes out of style. Moms can wear anything from a simple camisole to a cozy sweater to a maxi dress. Whatever feels comfortable! We encourage being mindful of bra straps and fingernails. Natural, nude or French tip manicure are ideal for timeless portraits. It’s all in the details. We’ll photograph mostly from the waist up and use flattering angles to make sure you all look your best.

EDITING

EDITING

Your portrait session is only the beginning of creating your custom artwork. We want you to treasure your final portraits. Within a week of your session, we'll share an online proofing gallery for your review. Once you've selected your favorites, we will hand edit each image in our signature style for your portrait gallery. Please understand that RAW unedited images are not at all a finished product, so they may not be downloaded or shared anywhere.

Once you've made your selections, we will edit each of these images in our natural style for your portrait gallery. As you’ll see in our Before & After Portfolio, each image is carefully and tastefully edited into a unique work of art. Within two weeks of your session, you'll be receiving a link to your private gallery of beautifully edited newborn portraits to download in high resolution and make your print order selections.

Digital portraits will each be presented in color and black & white to be downloaded in high resolution for your personal archives. Your images will be delivered in an online gallery where you may order professional quality prints and products. Your gallery may be shared with friends and family and will be available to view, download, and order prints for one month. We strongly encourage clients to back up digital portraits on two separate hard drives for redundancy in case of a hardware failure.
