My newborn photo session flow ensures that I capture all the important stuff, of course, the baby always guides the session but I try to make sure I go through my full flow in every newborn photoshoot in my Millcreek studio.
My newborn photoshoot always starts with the baby’s solo pictures, I wrap him up to calm him down and put him to sleep, I pose the baby in multiple beds and baskets and change the look by adding bonnet headbands or changing the wrap colors. I then move to nake newborn photos, where I focus more on showing baby folds, full-body pictures, and close-up portraits.
After that we move on to the family photos which is my favorite part of any session, I pose the baby with dad, with mum, with all the siblings, and I make sure to get every combination possible with the whole family. I also alternate between lifestyle chill newborn family photos and more posed studio ones for a variety in the end gallery.
Then I move on to details! I take pictures of tiny feet, tiny hands, and tiny fingers… believe me they will only stay so tiny for such a short time
My newborn photography sessions take place inside my studio in Millcreek Washington, they take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours depending on the baby. My sessions come with all the props, wraps, and outfits needed for the baby as well as an optional client closet for mum to choose from too.
Parents come to my studio to relax and watch their baby being taken care of gently and posed safely in the cutest setups, I make sure mum especially feels comfortable and relaxed and leaves feeling like she got herself a treat!
The first days of motherhood are not easy, and my goal is to document the most beautiful parts of it so that you never forget how beautiful your baby was and how much you are in love with him!
