NEWBORN SESSION TYPES
I offer in-hospital “Fresh 48” newborn sessions as well as a variety of studio newborn sessions. Each package includes a style consultation conducted over email or the phone, the creative session, post-session editing, and a downloadable gallery of edited, high resolution digital images with lifetime shared printing rights. Pricing available upon request.
STUDIO NEWBORN SESSIONS:
I specialize in natural newborn photography, and love capturing babies as they are, whether asleep or awake. I generally schedule newborn sessions to take place within the first two weeks after birth. Younger newborns will generally be sleepy and more amenable to being posed, while older newborns will usually be more awake and less willing to be posed. Sessions are relaxed and flexible with plenty of time for feeding and cuddling. I will gently guide your baby into poses, but will (of course) never force a pose. Therefore, I cannot guarantee any specific poses or images. Your baby will do what your baby will do, and whatever that is, is perfect.
Studio Newborn Sessions take place in my Austin studio. I provide all materials, including backdrop, beanbag, and props. If you have an heirloom item or other prop you would like incorporated, please let me know during our style consultation. Otherwise, you do not need to bring anything but baby! (And maybe a couple of pacifiers or bottles, if baby is bottle feeding).
In Hospital “fresh 48” Newborn Session
The Fresh 48 session takes place at the hospital on day 2 or day 3 after birth, and is up to one hour. We focus on capturing the earliest images of baby in this lifestyle session where parents and siblings and welcome to join. The session will produce many beautiful, special images, and I will lightly edit them for exposure, color, and contrast, and then provide you a digital gallery with the best of the best, usually between 35-50 images in a mixture of color and black and white. I will send you one or two sneak peeks within 24 hours of your session to share with family and friends. I love Fresh 48 sessions! They are so filled with emotion, love, tenderness and wonder. They make me happy every single time. Let me capture this beautiful time for you.
