The early days of a baby’s life are over in an instant. I feel that the best images are those that capture and evoke emotion. Those that instantly take you back to a particular time in your life. True emotion can only be achieved through real life. With no props, minimal posing, and a relaxed feel, a newborn lifestyle session allows you to remember baby’s tiny details, relive those first snuggles, and recall all the emotion and love during this special chapter of your life. Remember: real over ideal.
Ideally, it’s best to book your newborn session while you are still pregnant. While I can’t lock in a day and time (unless you have a scheduled c-section or induction), I will go and note your due date and try to keep a few open dates around that time frame. Newborn sessions are best within the first 10 days of baby’s life. This is when they’re at their squishiest and sleepiest. That’s not to say that I won’t photography any over 10 days but just know ahead of time that baby will be more alert and may not want to sleep.
While I always encourage clients to pick clothing that they feel comfortable in, communicates the style they have and compliments their home decor – I do always suggest starting from a neutral palette. Newborns should be the star of the show when it comes to the session, so dressing in bright colours or busy patterns often is distracting to the viewer.
A deposit of 150€ is required at the time of booking to secure your session. If it is not paid within one week, your spot will be released.
After roughly 2 weeks your final images will be ready. If you want we will also select your favourites to create printed artwork.
