Congratulations on your pregnancy! Welcoming a newborn baby into the family is one of the happiest and most exciting time in your life.
These days it's really essential to do your homework when looking for a newborn photographer, especially with so many new photographers popping up and offering newborn photography services after photographing a baby or two. If quality and safety are important to you, someone with experience and specialized training is something you need.
Why Choose Me?
I have over 5 years of experience and have worked with over 300 babies without having ever needed to reshoot or reschedule a session. As a mother of three myself, I have that gentle mother's touch that you can trust will keep your baby safe and comfortable throughout your session. I am capable of reading and feeling your baby's body language to gauge their level of comfort and have a flow of posing that will maximize the number of poses and images in your session without taking a toll on your baby or your family.
I recommend booking your newborn session for when you are in your second trimester. I only book a small number of newborns per month. This spots often fill quickly. This is to limit the traffic that comes through the studio in order to maintain a clean and safe environment to host your session in. I also want to make sure that you are given the attention you deserve from start to finish, so that you get exactly what you're looking for: a smooth, seamless experience and beautiful, perfect portraits.
With my meticulous eye in making sure everything is perfect, I will capture all of the beautiful details of your brand new baby and use adorable props and accessories to tastefully complement your newborn.
Sessions are fully customized to your taste and we will take the time we need to make sure we capture your goal images while enjoying a relaxing afternoon in the studio. Sessions are all set by your baby's pace, so there is plenty of time for feeding, snuggling and soothing. There is no rushing anything. Relax on our couch, enjoy snacks and drinks, and soak it all in.
If you are in your second trimester, it is the perfect time to book your newborn session. Only a few newborns are booked per month; these spots tend to fill quickly. On occasion, there may be a last-minute spot available but this is not guaranteed.
When is the best time to have my baby's photos done?
The best time to have your baby's photos done is within those first 10-21 days of life. Upon booking, your due date acts as your tentative booking. Once your baby arrives, we will schedule your baby's session according to their age. It may seem like this is early, but babies cooperate and do quite well during their sessions while they are still very fresh.
Where are newborn sessions shot?
All of my newborn sessions take place in my Evanston NW studio. It has absolutely everything you and your baby will need during your session, so you can relax and enjoy this experience completely stress-free.
