There is something magical about a newborn. They are all that embodies new life, joy and endless possibilities. Capturing your most cherished moments with your newborn baby is what I live for. Your photography session is focused around connection and the love between your family. This pure, abounding love is what I adore in my photography. I want to capture that connection between you and your baby so that you have that moment to forever look back on, preserved in the form of a timeless image.
All the touching images you come across of newborns cradled in a swing or nestled in their parents hands are considered posed portraits. These types of photos are carefully planned. We will discuss your vision and create a personalized set for your newborn session. This is also a great time to consider sentimental items and specific themes to incorporate. I never get tired of creating a one-of-a-kind newborn nest!
During those darling shots with baby snoozing upon their propped up hands, several safety measures are in place. Your newborn will NEVER be unattended or placed in a harmful position. Hands will always be on your baby. Your newborns safety and comfort are priority.
Posed portraits take place in the comforts of your home or you may come visit us at our NDDA studio. Posing your baby will take place in a safe and timely manner that focuses on your baby’s needs. During this session, we take time to carefully prepare baby and allow for plenty of feedings and cuddles so that your little one is never under stress or discomfort.
Infant Led Posing
No two newborns are alike. Your baby may not find the idea of posing as fun. During your session, your baby’s comfort is priority. Amazing portraits are still possible by the means of infant led posing. This is simply the method of posing your baby how they are most comfortable and settled. Your baby may love to curl up with one arm stretched way above their head. When they are at their happiest, is when the best pictures are captured.
We will embrace that little foot that must stick out or the hand that wiggles up to tug an ear. Your baby is unique in every way. During this infant led posing session, your baby’s personalities truly shine through. You will forever look back onto those images as sweet reminders.
A lifestyle newborn session is a wonderful way to capture your new baby in your home in a relaxed environment. This is a great way to get images in the nursery, with pets, or snuggling on the bed. During this newborn session, we will capture your family in an authentic and natural way so that you can look back and remember how you really were. Siblings favor these situation as well, as they can easily take a break to snack or wind down.
No posing is done during these sessions in-home, just gentle direction and guidance, which allows for natural connection and interactions to take place. When you envision a lifestyle session, imagine those moments when you are feeding baby, dressing and playing as a story to tell future generations. These are the real moments captured in a beautiful way allowing you to reflect on this time of your life. Lifestyle sessions can be booked as your full newborn session, or incorporated into a traditional portrait session.
