I truly am blessed to be a newborn photographer. Clients come to me from all over NY State. (I even having bragging rights as far north as Toronto.) The clients I service, all have their own unique stories, but are on a quest for the same goal: Professional Custom Newborn Portraits.  It is my desire to fulfill their request.

A beautiful family portrait |Fort Drum Newborn Photographer

As a Fort Drum Newborn Photographer, I receive many ‘out of state’ calls. You know, phone numbers that you aren’t sure about answering because it doesn’t look local or legit. I answer them all. I understand that there are some mama’s and grandmothers that value professional photography and will travel for the safety and vision of their baby. This phone call came from Illinois, and the behalf of her newborn grandson, Nolan. I was able to squeeze them into my schedule the first week I started homeschooling! Newborn sessions are 3 hours long, and Fort Drum is one and half hours from my studio. Lord, that is commitment!

At 16 days new, Nolan, was in my studio and just as sweet as can be for his portrait session. He rocked his little police outfit in honor of his grandfather, and his military outfit in honor of his dad. We were even able to face-time in with grandma for the viewing/ordering session. Technology is certainly amazing!

For newborn sessions, it is best to do you research. It seems like almost everyone is a photographer these days, but only few are willing to invest in hands on training (most important with newborns) and a safe studio set-up. This is your child. Please do not settle for someone down the street because they are nearby or inexpensive. Newborn photography is an investment. It is an experience that you will remember forever and become an heirloom to pass down for each generation afterwards.

For your newborn session, give me a call at (315) 297-1816 or email me at info@simplyshelayna.com.
