Newborns + Babies
It’s true: kids grow up soo fast. Remember this special time with photographs you’ll cherish forever. Let’s stop the hands of time with a newborn or infant photoshoot while it lasts!
Newborn & Baby Photography - New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine
Those first moments go by in a blur. Let’s put some of them in focus (and in frames).
I’ve been caring for newborns since I was 3 1/2 and my brother was born. My mother used to wake up startled she’d slept in, only to find me in my brother’s crib, with a bottle, his diaper changed and playing happily. I have patience and experience. Most clients call me the baby whisperer and ask if I can come back at 2 am. In a nutshell – I love babies. They’re my zen.
The session is a relaxed process and usually involves a lot of patience, waiting, feeding, and inevitably, I get peed on, or otherwise, and that’s ok! Newborn sessions are my favorite, and with mine grown past 6′ and moved out, I relish in every nuance of your squishy bundle of love!
They grow up so fast. You wish you could keep them small permanently. Let’s get together. We’ll bottle this age for keeps.
Newborn Photography FAQs
I encourage families to book their newborn session as soon as they know they’d like one. I’ll put your due date on the calendar as the ‘booking’ date, but fully understand that babies have their own schedule.
Once the little one arrives I suggest you reach out as soon as you can. Once you know what date you’ll be home from the hospital we’ll get you on the calendar ASAP!
The mini-maternity add-on is a great way to remember those belly photos (even if in the moment you’re not sure you want it, you’ll wish you had it. At least, I do, and he’s in his 20s now)
You can add an Exeter, NH area mini-maternity session to any of my newborn packages, or if you have a different location in mind, we can add on a regular lifestyle session or you can use one of the sessions in the first year packages.
I suggest maternity sessions be completed around 35-37 weeks depending on how well you’re feeling/carrying, but every baby + pregnancy are different, so whatever you’re comfortable with is great!
Yes, of course! Pets too!
A newborn session can take up to 2 hours. The session itself doesn’t take more than 45 minutes to an hour but there is a built-in hour for changing, feeding, soothing etc. These things are bound to be necessary and that’s ok!
Comfortable, fun clothes, or naked baby bottoms. It’s all fantastic. Extra diapers on hand are a must. If you have more than one outfit in mind, I recommend you start with the ‘most important’ outfit first. Just in case. If you are looking for the ‘au natural’ look, try and remember to keep elastic-waisted clothes and diapers loose for a few hours before the shoot to decrease the imprints left by them!
