The birth of a new life is amazing and it is a privilege to be entrusted to capture these first, and ever-lasting, images of your little one. When newborns and their parents come into my studio in Williamsville, NY, I want them to feel relaxed and at ease, safe and secure in sharing this brand new life with me. In our newborn session, I do not keep to a scheduled clock for time as every baby is unique and treated that way. Time will be taken as needed to feed, change, settle and soothe, so both parents and baby are relaxed and comfortable.
Although we will take as much time as needed, generally sessions are 2-4 hours. Newborn sessions are done within the first 10 days of life, with days 7-8 being my favorite/preferred. Sleepy, milk-drunk babies take the best pictures. During this time, newborns are still sleeping through most of the day, they pose and curl up easily, their skin looks great and they tend not to wake during transitional posing.
Newborn sessions include 3 prop setups and classic fabric posing, siblings (if applicable), parents individually and parents together. The entire studio is full of carefully selected, beautiful props and handmade items from all over the world that I will use to fully style your newborn session. Plan for some images to be simply a classic background fabric where the attention is only on your newborn and others to be more artistically styled with props such as newborn beds, bowls, buckets and more.
Newborn Creative Session Fee to book your session is $250.
Products start at $200 and Collections start at $700.
After we've confirmed your appointment, I will send you the Newborn Session Prep Guide that explains what to expect before, during and after our session. I pre-plan your entire session and utilize the information you complete on the session questionnaire to know your "must-have" prop, color or setup you would like. This session can also include sibling and parent photos if you wish at no additional cost. I will reveal a gallery of 30-40 fully edited images from which to order your art product or Digitals from.
It's never too early to book your newborn session, and the earlier in your pregnancy the better to secure availability on my schedule as I book out 2-3 months in advance. Your due date will be your placeholder on my schedule. But it can be a moving target as babies keep their own time schedule and it rarely matches with ours! As such, you would contact me within 24-48 hours after baby arrives and we will schedule your session date at that time.
However, if you have not pre-booked your spot, please contact me because I may have a last minute opening to accommodate you. Don't let this time slip away without capturing it.
