Professional Newborn Portraiture Services
There’s something about a new baby that makes the world seem fresh and new. Babies are a reminder of all the possibilities that life holds. They’re also a lot of work, but it’s worth it to capture those first few weeks and months when they’re so small and vulnerable. That’s why newborn photography is so popular.
Newborn photography is more than just taking pictures of a baby. It’s about capturing the innocence and vulnerability of those early days, and the love and joy parents feel for their new child. It’s an important part of family history, and it will be cherished for years to come.
Preparing for the Session
The key to a successful newborn session is preparation. The photographer must know what to expect and be prepared for anything. Here are a few things you can do to help make the session go smoothly:
• Newborns are scheduled at 9am, when babies are generally most content.
• Have everything you need ready before. And email will go out prior to your session with helpful details.
• Feed your baby right before the session, in studio upon arrival, so they are nice and full. This will help them to fall asleep more easily.
Age of Newborns
Most newborn photography is done when the baby is 5-12 days old . This is because they are still sleepy and can be easily and safely posed. However, a newborn is considered so for the first 3 weeks of life and babies can be photographed successfully at any age. Prebooking is strongly encouraged as we only take so many newborns a month.
During the Session
Once you arrive and baby is given a full feed, we will begin the session. Don’t worry if your baby doesn’t cooperate at first. Our photographer has 7 years of experience and can handle any situation to create beautiful images.
The safety of your baby is always our top priority. As the only newborn trained and safety certified studio in the area, we only use safe posing techniques tested and approved by experts. We also have experience working with premature and high-risk babies and know how to handle them with care.

How Can You Prepare for Your Newborn Session?First, we recommend booking with anticipation. Our photography studio takes a limited number of newborns a month, so make sure you pre-book, if at all possible. A pre session questionnaire will be sent after booking, so the studio staff is sure to design sets that you will love! You will receive an email with further instructions about your session before session day. Also, please plan to bring baby in between 4 and 8 days after birth. Some general tips for our clients include ensuring you keep your baby awake for a while before the photography session starts and to plan to feed baby a full feed, when you arrive at the studio, the morning of the session; that way, you will get those adorable poses you're looking for. Moreover, if they're full, they're likely to fall asleep faster, which will also get them those sleepy poses everyone loves. Finally, leave the rest to our photography experts. Our team is trained to work with babies and use safe posing techniques. Even if you have a high-risk baby, we'll know how to make the experience as comfortable as possible for everyone.
What Age Is Best for a Newborn Session?We strongly recommend that baby comes in for session between 4 and 8 days old, if at all possible. You can browse our site to have an idea of what poses we work with and the babies we've had in our photography studio.
