Your newborn studio session will be held in our comfortable studio, located in Vancouver, Washington. Newborn sessions last approximately 3-4 hours.
Bringing a new baby into your family is one of life’s most amazing and wonderful moments! The newborn days are so precious, yet so fleeting. As parents, you can appreciate how quickly these days go by and how important it is to capture all of the sweet details of your new baby, while he/she is still little.
I take working with your little ones very seriously. I have invested in training specifically geared towards the safe handling and posing of newborns. I have trained along-side one of the most respected newborn photographers in the world and have taken more classes than I can even keep track of. So much goes into getting the perfect images of your newborn. Lighting techniques, styling, posing, and attention to all the little details combined to create breathtaking portraits.
Scheduling and Information
Our studio normally books out two months in advance, so it is best to book in your newborn session while you are still pregnant. Once booked, we will pencil in your due date on the calendar. Then as soon as baby arrives, you let us know so that we can schedule the exact date and time of the session. Newborn sessions are recommended to be done in the first 14 days of life (preferably between 6 and 12-days-old), so it is imperative that you contact us as soon as possible after your little one arrives to schedule your session. After they pass the 14-day mark, they become less sleepy and more difficult to pose. If you happen to stumble across this site after your baby is born, we will do our best to try to squeeze you in before the 14-day mark, and can normally accommodate newborn sessions up to six weeks of age, pending availability.
If you have missed the six-week mark, there are plenty of other options for beautiful sessions for your little one. Please contact us for further details on booking a session for babies aged 4-12 months.
Parents and sibling portraits are always welcomed and encouraged during the newborn session. The session are typically scheduled for 10am and can last 3-4 hours, especially with family and siblings. We have a welcoming and comfortable studio, The sessions are never rushed and as we stop often for feeding, soothing and safety. The studio is set at 80 degrees and we work in a calm and relaxed environment. We provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare you and your baby so that the session runs smoothly and efficiently. Babies are more rested in the mid-morning and with the proper preparation will arrive in a deep sleep so we can start your session immediately.
Props and accessories are included in your session. We choose only the highest quality headbands, hats, wraps and fabrics that we can find, and prefer natural cottons, wools and fibers. This also means that we have searched high and low for the best quality props from some of the most trusted and sought after vendors in the industry. Everything is purchased with safety in mind. From soft Alpaca bonnets to cozy angora rompers; I pay close attention to potential irritants to your new little one’s skin. Our style is contemporary and simple, best for portraying your baby as the main focus.
Before the newborn session, we get to know you with a pre-consultation either by phone or in person. Together we design the color and style to completely individualize the session for you.
The experience doesn’t end with your session though! Once your gallery is completed you will return to our studio for an in-person viewing. This is a chance for you to ask questions, see my beautiful products first hand, order digital files, and to make sure you get exactly what you dreamed about for your images. I will be there to walk through the process every step of the way!
