With the sleepless nights and whirlwind of emotions, that teeny-tiny phase seems to pass by in the blink of an eye.
Newborn sessions are best captured in the first 4-12 days, while your baby is sleeping soundly and curling up into those adorable womblike poses. For babies that are born early and spend time in the hospital, we recommend scheduling a session within the first week of being sent home. We encourage families to book their newborn photography session as early as possible to ensure availability. Your due date will be placed on our calendar, and we’ll look forward to hearing from you once your baby is born to schedule your newborn session. We only book a limited number of newborns each month to allow flexibility in our calendar for last-minute appointments. If you’ve already had your little one, we will try our very best to accommodate you, or at least to recommend a fellow photographer with availability.
Newborn sessions generally last two-three hours, allowing plenty of time for feedings and diaper changes to keep your baby content. The studio is kept warm and sanitized throughout the session, and all blankets are washed with the most gentle hypoallergenic detergents. We’ll capture a variety of newborn poses, while also capturing the sweet tiny details that make your baby unique. Sessions are scheduled for the morning or early afternoon for that gorgeously soft, glowing natural light.
As you’ll see in our newborn gallery, we use blankets, wraps and knit accessories for our signature style: soft, simple and timeless.
The glow of your skin, those fluttering kicks, the excited emotions, and the endless belly kisses.
Maternity portraits are generally captured around 30-34 weeks, when your belly is beautifully round and you’re still feeling comfortable for a variety of poses. Of course maternity portraits may be captured up to the very last day of pregnancy, and we try our best to allow flexibility in our calendar for last-minute openings. With your glowing skin and lustrous hair, there’s no time more beautiful in a woman’s life. Timing can be different for everyone, so please be in touch as soon as possible to book your appointment.
We photograph fully clothed maternity portraits, as well as tastefully implied nudes. Many clients like to capture a combination of both, so you’ll have intimate portraits for your bedroom and more conservative silhouettes for the nursery.
We have a variety of wardrobe options in our studio, including fitted maternity gowns, lace robes, bodysuits, and silk fabrics to accentuate your curves. You can view samples in our portfolio. We will discuss the vision for your portraits beforehand.
Following your session, I spend an extensive amount of time curating and post-processing the best images to showcase in your gallery.
Within 3 days of your session, you will be receiving a link to your private proofing gallery to select your favorite images for editing. I carefully curate the images from your session to share the best ones based on lighting, background, focus, pose, facial expressions, and overall appeal. Once you've finalized your selections, I will artistically edit each image in our signature style. Please know that my studio does not release raw files, since they are not a finished product.
For every minute we spend together, I spend hundreds more behind the scenes to make your final photos and overall experience truly exceptional.
