I have the best job. Tiny newborns grace my studio for their first family and newborn portrait sessions and become works of art and instant heirlooms to be treasured for the rest of time. Sir Greyson was just eight days new for his CNY newborn photography session. He rocked every pose, including bum up on dad’s guitar as well froggy on the guitar. (These poses were done with hands on baby the whole time and by a professionally trained photographer. Do not try these poses without being trained.)

Greyson comes from a talented family. His father sings and plays guitar for local events while his mama beautifies the locals in her salon. So of course, we added the guitar to his newborn photography to honor that portion of his career.

When booking your newborn photography session before birth, there is always a question of “How will we schedule our newborn session if the baby isn’t born yet?” As an expectant mama, you may be planning on having your baby naturally with no predetermined date of when your baby will arrive. That leaves room for much uncertainty when booking your newborn session. That’s where I come in. When you book your newborn session with me before your baby’s birth, I will add you to my calendar and will not overbook for the week that you are expecting to deliver. Within two days after giving birth (while resting in the hospital or at home) shoot me a message of your blessed arrival. From there, we will schedule a date for your newborn’s photography session. Newborns are best posed and photographed within 5-14 days of birth, so it is crucial to have your newborn photographer booked well before your baby arrives.
