Newborns are my favorite subject to photograph! A true newborn session is done within the first two weeks of life. The goal is to capture the tiny size and the way they are so curled up. Your baby will grow so fast, and you will want to remember it! A newborn session is almost always done in my Highlands Ranch home studio, on a weekday morning. I have so many props, backdrops, etc. so you don't have to bring anything except baby (unless you have something special you want to incorporate!). I do most of my newborn shots in their birthday suit, or swaddled. For mom and dad, a plain colored shirt and jeans is best. I usually ask you to bring a black shirt and a white shirt to give us some options. Newborn sessions are long (2-3 hours) because I build in lots of time for feeding, changing and rocking to sleep. Patience is key to grab those few amazing shots. It usually works best if you can feed your baby as soon as you get here, or right before you come, if you live close, to ensure baby will be able to go to sleep and be happy for a while.
Siblings are always welcome and I love to get sibling and family shots, if applicable! If it works to have the spouse and sibling(s) come at the beginning or end, that seems to work best, but if you have to bring one car, I have three kids of my own so I own a few toys. ;)
If you know you want to schedule a newborn session, contact me as soon as you know your due date. I am only able to take 4 newborn sessions a month at this point. Most people book a few months in advance to ensure a spot. I will put your due date on the calendar when I receive your contract and deposit, and then we will work together to find the best time for your session (usually a week day) after baby makes his/her appearance!
After the session, I promise images in 1-2 weeks. You will receive an online gallery for viewing/sharing/downloading/purchasing lab quality prints. I am passionate about you having access to your digitals, but also having prints, since that's the only way to truly ensure you keep those images forever. There is no ordering session and I don't expect you to spend a penny more than the initial session charge.
Inquire today if you have interest in booking a newborn session! Those first moments are so tiring and foggy, but oh so sweet, and you will never regret capturing what you can never get back!
