I believe newborns are impossibly perfect just as they are and prefer simplicity, neutral colors and natural poses that make baby the focus of the session rather than generic props and accessories.
My newborn sessions include naturally posed newborn pictures as well as pictures with family and pets. Sessions are typically scheduled when your baby is between one and three weeks old.
I offer both studio and in home newborn sessions.
My studio is located in Boston and is a natural light space with white walls, a white bed and a large bay window for relaxed family pictures as well as blankets, wraps and other accessories for posing baby.
I also offer in home newborn sessions which are a great option if you would like to include your home and nursery in the photos or prefer the convenience of me coming to you following the birth. In home sessions are shot using the natural window light in your home and family photos are typically taken in the nursery, bedroom or on a couch. I bring a newborn posing pillow along with a few blankets and wraps for pictures of baby alone.
Prior to your session we will go over who will be included in the session, your goals for the session and the type of images you prefer. I will customize your session based on your preferences as well as make suggestions for outfits and how to prepare baby.
Newborn sessions typically take between one and two hours, although the flow of the session is relaxed and there is no set time limit. We will take as much time as we need to get beautiful pictures!
I have over ten years of experience as newborn photographer and extensive training in newborn posing and safety. I am also a mom of two girls myself so I know all the tricks when it comes to calming and soothing babies!
Newborns are typically not yet on any kind of predictable schedule so we always work around what the baby needs, taking breaks for feeding and soothing as needed.
Within two weeks, I will send you a link to view the images from your session in an online password protected gallery and at that point you will make your final picture and product selections.
I schedule newborn sessions for weekday mornings with session dates booking about a month in advance, so it is best to book your newborn session while you are still pregnant. Once booked, I will tentatively schedule you for two weeks following your due date and ask that you contact me when your baby arrives to finalize a date and time for your session.
If you happen to have found me after your baby has arrived, please contact me and I will do my best to fit you in if I have availability.
