A newborn session at the studio is all about you and your sweet little one. I take care of everything, from props and sets to rocking your baby to sleep. I understand how sensitive a baby is during the first few weeks of life, and safety and health are my primary concern. I prefer to photograph newborns when they are between 5-12 days old. This age range is when newborns are still “curly” and sleepy enough for me to handle and pose them in the ways you see in my portfolio. Babies older than 2 weeks begin to stretch out their limbs and are more sensitive to having their arms and legs adjusted in a pose. They wake up easier, and things like baby acne, colic, tummy upset, and flaky skin begin to emerge as a newborn is out of the womb longer.
I only book a limited number of sessions a month and I strongly suggest to book your session at least 3 months before your due date. Parents that book their due date in advance will always have priority when choosing a session date. Last minute bookings might not be always available and it pains me greatly when I have to tell clients I cannot photograph their baby.
All newborn sessions are done in my studio in Lincoln Park, NJ.
