Newborn Sessions

Newborn Photography Session Information

Newborn sessions are my absolute favorite to photograph! I look forward to every single session and it is such an honor to be trusted to capture the precious memories of a brand new family.

Newborns are photographed in my midtown Tallahassee photography studio, where I have everything we need to keep your baby comfortable during his or her session, including the adorable props you see on my website. Newborns are best photographed in the first couple weeks after birth (with the exception of preemies), and to guarantee availability during this time, I take a limited number of sessions each month.  I do try to leave space in my calendar to accommodate last minute newborn bookings, but that isn’t always possible. Once you decide to book a newborn session, I recommend contacting me as soon as you can to get your due date on my calendar.

Tallahassee Newborn Photography

Newborn Session:

Newborn sessions are ideal for babies ages 4-21* days and includes posed portraits of your baby on simple blankets and props as well as new family images (optional but encouraged!) Newborn sessions include:

  • 2-3 hours of photography at my midtown Tallahassee studio
  • Portraits with parents and siblings (optional), 2 blanket setups (5-6 poses), and 2 prop setups
  • Pre-session consultation via phone or email to plan your customized session
  • Use of studio props, such as backdrops, blankets, headbands, hats, outfits, baskets, and more

* I do photograph newborns past 21 days of age, however I don’t guarantee posed sleeping portraits after that point (unless baby is a preemie; then we calculate based on baby’s due date). I will photograph newborn sessions with babies up to 8 weeks, but they are likely to be alert for the majority of their images once they are past the 21 day mark.

An online gallery of images will be ready 2-3 weeks after your session date for you to choose your prints and products.

 

Newborn Mini Sessions:
This session is ideal for the client who wants professional newborn portraits but doesn’t want or need the variety that comes with a full session.  It is ideal for babies ages 4-21 days and includes posed portraits of your baby with one blanket and one prop.

  • 45-60 minutes of photography at my midtown Tallahassee studio
  • Pre-session consultation via phone or email to plan your customized session
  • Use of studio props, such as backdrops, blankets, headbands, hats, outfits, baskets, and more
  • Due to time constraints, this session is for the newborn only and does not include parent or sibling images. It may or may not include posed sleeping images, depending on the cooperation of the baby. Awake babies will be photographed swaddled or wrapped, and sleeping babies may be wrapped or undressed. These sessions include 1 blanket setup (minimum of 2-3 poses) and 1 prop setup. (Petite sessions are not valid for twins or triplets due to the additional time needed to photograph multiple babies.)

Newborn Safety

Posed newborn portraiture requires extensive study on safety techniques and posing, and lots of time, experience, and patience. I have been specializing in newborn photography since 2010 and have photographed hundreds of newborns since then. I continue to take workshops and classes every year to improve and expand my abilities in newborn portraiture, and I am fully licensed and insured. I want every client to feel comfortable knowing their baby is in the hands of an experienced professional.
