Newborns are Angela’s favorite subjects to photograph because these little beings are so precious and intriguing. Their little lips, fingers and toes, little tushies and their belly button are some of the features she love to capture. Angela will create modern portraits for your new family with her ability to handle your newborn with care.
WHEN TO SCHEDULE
You should try to schedule your newborn session BEFORE your baby is born. The most successful sessions are photographed when newborns are under 14 days old. At this age we can capture all the adorable, curly and "womb-like" poses that are so characteristic of today's newborn portraits. After two weeks of age, babies start to stretch out and are more likely to become disturbed when we attempt to position them. Colic and baby acne are also issues that can begin to surface after the first week of life.
PREPARING FOR YOUR SESSION
We photograph most newborn babies in their beautiful bare skin. We ask that you have your baby in their diaper when we arrive and then plan to feed him right when we get here. This helps her relax and get into that "milk drunk" state we love so much! At your pre-session consultation we will discuss clothing options, home style & portrait design, and what mom and dad need to have.
Expect a newborn session to last up to 3 hours. We work on "baby" time and stop often for feedings and comforting. Newborn sessions are done at your home, so that you do not have to worry about getting everyone dressed and out the door on time.
Newborn Session Fees starts at $250. Session fee is for time and talent only. Birth announcements, prints, coffee table books and canvases are available and to be purchased separately. When inquiring, please include your due date (or baby's birth date), telephone number and location.
