There's no greater blessing than that of a newborn baby. Whether it's your first or fourth, your life will be changed forever - in the best way possible. You'll be in love immediately - and you'll find yourself doing nothing but staring at this new little life who has just entered the world.
Babies are most sleepy in the first 2 weeks of life, making it the optimal time for Newborn Portraits. Right around 14 days of age, you'll notice they stay awake a little longer and might be harder to get to sleep. Of course, this varies from baby to baby and other factors such as being born early or late.
A typical newborn session lasts anywhere from 1 1/2 -2 hours, depending upon baby. It’s a stress-free environment and experience. Your baby will dictate how the session goes so being flexible will help reduce stress a new parent may feel. It is the only session that lasts this long since we ideally want to make timeless portraits with baby sleeping. This sometimes takes a bit of extra time. Some babies arrive super sleepy, and others are more challenging, but we always get the job done. I've been called "The Baby Whisperer" for a reason:-)
Please contact me BEFORE baby arrives so I can pencil you in on my calendar. If your baby has already arrived, please contact me as soon as possible.
