Newborn Photography Austin
Congratulations on expecting your precious baby! This is such a exciting time for you and I would be honored to be a part of your story. Newborn photography is my passion. Every baby is a miracle and I love every detail. Their tiny toes, little fingers, cute button noses, and swirls of hair are all so perfect. As your newborn photographer, my job is to preserve these moments you will never get back.
Newborn photography is unlike any other type of photography. Working with babies requires a high level of safety training as well as lots of patience and finesse. I take newborn safety very seriously. I have specialized in newborn photography for over 10 years and am proud of the experience I have gained. I have specifically designed my studio with newborns in mind and I keep it fully stocked with everything we could need. I have so many luxurious wraps, outfits, and props to stylize a session that is unique and custom to you.
Your Newborn Session Includes:
- A consultation to plan your session
- Use of studio props, outfits, and accessories
- Up to 3 hour session in studio
- Family & sibling pictures if desired
- Multiple unique sets and poses for baby
- An Image Reveal and Ordering Appointment
When should I book my session?
The first few weeks of your baby’s life will feel like a blur. One of the last things you’ll have time for is finding a photographer that is the right fit for you! Check it off your list now so you don’t have to worry about it then. I recommend booking in your second trimester to save a spot on my calendar.
How old should my baby be?
Once your little one makes his or her arrival you’ll contact me again so we can choose the actual day for your session. All newborn sessions take place Monday-Friday mornings. Newborns are best photographed within the first three weeks so it is important to let me know when he or she arrives as soon as you can. I prefer under three weeks since baby is still sleepy and curls easily into the poses you see throughout my website. However, I will never turn away an older baby as long as my schedule allows. Please don’t hesitate to ask!
How Long will my session last?
Each session is different due to the individuality of the baby but plan for the session to last from 2-3 hours. This will give us plenty of time for feeding and soothing as baby sees fit. I know this may seem long, but poses take time to perfect and sometimes baby may fuss before settling. Please know that I am trained in newborn safety and will never put your baby in danger. Coffee, snacks, and a comfortable couch (maybe for napping?) are available to you while I work with your baby. Sanitized quiet toys are also ready to go for occupying older siblings.
What should we wear?
Solid neutrals are always a safe bet and photograph best. I love to use white, cream, or soft pastels against a light backdrop or grays and blacks on a darker backdrop. Think about your personal and home style to ensure your images coordinate with your decor. I’d be happy to discuss this more during our consultation.
What do I need to do before we arrive?
After you book I’ll send you a comprehensive guide to help you and baby get ready for our session. It includes simple tips for preparing for our time together along with a short list of things to bring with you.
How do I choose my images?
This is the best part! After your session we’ll sit down together and review your images. I’ll guide you through the process of choosing your favorites. From there we can decide on a beautiful wall art piece, create a custom album, or design a unique image collage. For your convenience, all printed images come with the matching digital files. There are so many gorgeous ways to display your images and I can’t wait to show them to you.
