Those first few weeks after your child is born are life changing. It's as if your whole world has opened up and you've discovered that life wasn't as bright or colorful before your baby entered the world.
I want to capture what you're feeling. I want to document the looks exchanged between mother, father and baby. Those are moments so precious that you can't even describe them with the letters of the alphabet. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I contend that a picture is worth far more. A picture captures impalpable essence.
In addition to snapping some photographs of mum and dad with baby, my newborn sessions also include a series a photographs taken of just your newborn. For example, I like to get details of wee little feet, a tiny hand clasped around dad's finger, that button nose and tuft of fluffy hair. In addition to the details, I'll also photograph your newborn resting peacefully. Perhaps in a cozy, comfortable nook or on top of the blanket he'll sleep with for years to come. My camera knows no bounds.
Now, I know mum is going to be exhausted after all that pushing. The best part about a newborn session, though, is the fact that you don't have to do anything but show up. I'll even come to you (within a reasonable distance)! Just tell me where to drive and I'll be there right on time with all my props and equipment and an eagerness to capture meaningful images of your sweet little angel. Remember, the emphasis here is on your newborn, so your little one will be the star of the day.
As for scheduling your newborn photos, when we take them is your decision. Because that "newborn look" tends to fade quickly, newborn photographs are normally taken shortly after you return from the hospital typically between 5-12 days after baby has entered the world. Booking early of course is recommended so I can eagerly await your baby and be ready for their arrival, just let me know your due date and I will take it from there!
