Miss Maren is an older newborn. At 35 days new she came to see me for her squishy curly CNY newborn photography portrait session and rocked it! Posing an older newborn requires a little extra patience and sleepy vibes, but Maren did so well. During her moments of being awake, she kept fabulous eye contact with the camera that made her newborn portraits more precious.

 As a CNY Newborn Photographer, I was able to keep my newborn workflow with Maren flowing all the way from ‘bum up’ to ‘froggy’. And you may have heard it from me before that any session where I successfully capture ‘froggy’ pose, is an amazing session! Thank you, Maren for being so willing!  

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 is where I come in. When you book your newborn session with me prior to 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.
