Newborn Session with Brooklyn Newborn Photographer
Sweet Christian came to my studio when he was 25 days old for his newborn portraits! His mother was worried that he would be too big for newborn portraits and the classic curled up poses I usually do. I let her know that no matter what, we would create some beautiful and classic portraits of her sweet baby boy that she would love. I think we succeeded in having a gorgeous session for this little guy! I absolutely loved getting to work with Christian and his family – I’m thrilled his mother contacted me, even though she was worried about the timing!!
Classic Newborn Session
Although Christian was a little bit older when he came to my studio, he was great about letting me pose him! Usually, newborn sessions take place within the first two to 2.5 weeks of a baby’s life, because they’re still very sleepy and want to curl up. Sessions with older babies can take more patience and expertise, but he was wonderful for me and made my job very easy. I went through my regular workflow and session with him, like I would with younger babies. He was so sweet and even let me swaddle him up in a beautiful ivory wrap. Christian’s mother wanted a mix of blues, whites, and greys for his setup – and his Aunt who came along asked about some beige as well. It was absolutely perfect! Christian looked so cute in the colors they picked out!
Booking Your Newborn Session
I encourage families who are expecting to book a newborn session while they’re in their third trimester. This ensures that your session is set on my calendar. Although your actual session date will be flexible so that we can accommodate whatever day your baby is actually born, booking ahead makes sure I know to expect you! After you book, we will begin to discuss the colors and theme you’ll want to help create the classic setups I love. We are able to do all of that ahead of time. When you come in for your baby’s newborn session, it will be super relaxing and enjoyable for you while we create memories that will last a lifetime!
