You have waited 9 longs months to hold your newborn baby. There were days that it seemed baby’s due date would never arrive. You’ve enjoyed watching him drum beat your belly with his little feet. You’ve giggled through his hiccups and cuddled him in your arms though he was still floating inside you. You know your baby is going to be the love, joy and proudest achievement of your life. This is your baby. But babies don’t stay babies forever. They grow up so fast. In just a few short days after birth their features start to change, and of course they are still just as beautiful. But before even a year is out, your baby is starting to move around, walking, even letting go of your hand. Before you know it, that baby is going to be climbing the big yellow steps onto the bus, heading to kindergarten. In a flash, that same baby is receiving his diploma and packing for college. Mama what are you going to do? He’s not so little any more, but, he will always be your baby.
This is why I am here. You want to see your baby as you did the first day you held him in your arms. Tiny and delicate features. Maybe a little bald on top, or some peach fuzz, maybe a head full of hair. I can do that. I can capture that tiny stage of life and create an artwork that you will treasure forever. At each stage as you watch him grow, you will be able to look back at your baby, your tiny baby, and remember him as he started his life.
Newborn photography is an investment. It’s not a snapshot for social media, that falls off your newsfeed only to emerge in a years time and disappear again. It is a treasure to be seen and adored, set on display in the highest quality form of art for your home. Your newborn portrait will be the conversation piece of your home as guest adore your baby’s portrait.
What's Your Newborn Photographer’s Style?
Finding the right newborn photographer may take some time. There are many newborn photographers out there. Find ones whose styles will match your home. All photographers have their own style. My style is soft, and earth toned colors. I love delicacy. Little knits and tiny details. I adore wooden props. I sew and knit most of my own newborn outfits, wraps and bonnets. Almost all that you see in the photograph with your newborn will have been made by me, or handmade by someone I love and trust.
Is Your Newborn Photographer trained?
A newborn photographer needs to be trained. Interview your photographer when you call her to see if she has an opening around your due date. Ask the hard question: Are you trained in the art of newborn safety, posing, and photography? It’s a simply yes or no question. If no, thank them for their time, if yes, find out their story! I have traveled out of state multiple times, and study with the best in the WORLD in online training seminars. My in-person workshops allowed me hands on training that was so exciting. I tell everyone about my involvement. It was an amazing experience! And I am always learning. Not only in newborn safety and editing but have earned my Red Cross Infant CPR Certification as well. Your baby is safe with me.
Is Your Newborn Photographer Insured?
Another thing to considering when investing in a newborn photographer is, is she insured. Often newborns come in with siblings that are excited for their new baby and equipment is expensive. Should for some reason a light be knocked over in the studio, would be covered? Insurance is a must for a studio, and yes, I am covered.
