If you’re expecting a baby, or already a parent and looking for a newborn, maternity, or family photographer, I would love to work with you to create images you’ll love for a lifetime. You can also give sessions with me as a gift, which is exactly what my friend Susan Isaak did. Susan is a real estate salesperson in town, and she purchased a newborn session as a gift for her clients. What a gift!
As a professional newborn photographer, my goal is, of course, to have a baby who sleeps through the duration of the session! I prep my clients in detail before their session. Partners can switch off this ‘duty’ while the other gets ready for the session. Parents can also try to feed the baby 30-45 minutes before their session time, so we’re almost guaranteed that there will be a good diaper change before the session! If mom is breastfeeding, it’s best to avoid drinks and food that can give baby gas before session time.
Even if parents follow this advice perfectly, every now and then I’ll have a baby who has a harder time getting settled. As a professional newborn photographer, you know I have a few tools and tricks I use to help settle baby. Still, there’s always a chance that the baby just doesn’t want to sleep. In those cases my job is to put parents at ease so that we can all roll with the punches and I can deliver an absolutely beautiful final gallery. Whether baby is asleep or awake, my goal is always to keep everyone happy.
An awake newborn was not my experience with Judah, who was just the most perfect little subject. I’m pretty sure he was asleep the whole time!
Judah loved to stretch, and wiggle his arms and toes out of the swaddles, which made for some absolutely adorable images. It also made my job of snapping photos of his little toes that much easier!
Danielle and Carl were incredibly calm and had a go-with-the-flow attitude. I loved working with this precious family!
