One of the most frequent questions I get asked as a newborn photographer is when to do newborn photos.  Six to twelve days old is the best time to capture your newborn baby in all their wonderful newness.  When they are less than two weeks old, we can wrap them and pose them and most of the time they will stay asleep.  We can certainly do newborn photos later than that, but the older they get the less they stay asleep and the more likely they are to stay still. There is a lot of flailing of arms that happens the older they get.

Because they are so young, I take newborn safety very seriously and I will make sure to notify you if I am not feeling well or have anything that is contagious. Thankfully, I believe in a healthy lifestyle with natural supplements and clean-eating and I rarely catch anything. But in the event I feel that I am not well (or I even think there is a chance that I might not be), I will let you know so that we can reschedule. I also ask that you do the same if the baby or you have something contagious.

I also know that the baby's schedule cannot be predicted when we chose the newborn photo shoot date, so we wait until a few days before to actually decide on a morning or afternoon shoot. I schedule a large block of the day to allow for flexibility to adjust the time as needed.  And your session doesn't begin until you arrive, so if you are running late, no worries - just let me know so I can keep working on other things. The last thing we want is for you to show up stressed because you are late. If you are stressed, the baby will feel it and it will be harder to get them to stay asleep and calm.

Here are some recent photos from our newborn shoots that were taken when the baby was less than two weeks old:

If you are interested in booking a newborn shoot with us, call to see if I have availability for your due date on our calendar. We know that when the baby will actually come is completely unknown, but we use the due date as a starting point and look at our availability two weeks before and two weeks after to make sure that I can book your session once you have the baby.  Here is more information about our pricing and process

​Sweet little Mackenzie was the tiebreaker, giving girls the majority in this family. She is gorgeous and looks like a baby doll! We loved hanging out with her, her older siblings and her mom. Welcome baby Mackenzie!

Family portrait sessions can be stressful, we understand that.  Finding the perfect outfit, picking the perfect location, hoping your kids have perfect behavior!  It's a lot to think about.  But we also understand how special it is for families to have some amazing pictures together!  To help make your session as stress free as possible, we go out of our way to make family sessions super fun and relaxing.

This sweet family had a lot going on!  Their son was about to leave for the Army and mom wanted family pictures before he left.  We booked the shoot, found a great spot and they arrived looking super sharp!  We had a lot of fun at their session...Dad is one funny guy!  I think mom got the pictures she was looking for and the whole family made some great memories!  And best of all...it was fun and relaxing!
