Taking photos when your baby is asleep, it’s the best option. So try to keep your baby awake for 1-2 hours prior to coming into the studio; this will help Connie get them into cute poses, and also lets her use props more effectively.
The best time for newborn photography is in the first fourteen days of life. During this time they sleep more soundly and curl up into precious poses more easily.
Your precious little ones won’t stay little for long. That’s why Connie Mintz is here to help you and your family capture those precious early memories with newborn and baby portraits.
Make sure you schedule your newborn portraits when your baby is between one and three weeks. It is always a good idea to feed your infant prior to leaving home. This will allow their little tummies to settle and reduce spitting up and fussiness.
Connie would love to provide these photographs for you. I have worked with children and families in the local school system for over 20 years. Therefore, the most important part of my newborn photography sessions is the child’s safety. My in-home professional studio has access to lots of natural light. I also own tons of backdrops and props meant to keep your child safe while highlighting their beautiful features. Of course, there is plenty of room for you to stay near your child while I work with them. You can feel confident that I will take care of everything and you can feel free to take a few minutes to yourself and relax while I take the pictures. We’ll quickly work through a number of comfortable positions and poses that will bring out your newborns individual features and then, have him back safely in your arms.
I think that it’s best to photograph newborns within 14 days of their birth. That way they still have that newborn glow, and the unique attributes that they’ll grow out of far too quickly. I recommend booking your sessions 1 to 2 months in advance, so it’s best to contact me about 8-10 weeks before your due date. That way we can make plans in advance and I can keep my schedule open to accommodate your needs.
If you live in Portland, Oregon; Vancouver, Washington; or the surrounding area I’d love to work with you and your newborn child. If you’d like to schedule an appointment, or have any questions about regarding my sessions please call me at 360-606-7313 or send me an email
