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 colourful before your baby entered the world.
I want to capture what you're feeling. I want to document the looks exchanged between mother, partner, siblings 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.
All 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. Sessions are 2-4 hours and held in my Charlestown studio.
The best part about a newborn session, though, is the fact that you don't have to do anything but show up. I want Mum to come in whatever comfortable clothes you have. We photograph from the waist up for mum/newborn and family portraits. I have drapes and material we can wrap you in that will blend with the session colours and theme. I have a wonderful hair and makeup artist if you would like her to pamper you on the day.
I have patience, my props, equipment and an eagerness to capture meaningful images of your sweet little newborn.
As for scheduling your newborn photos, when we take them is your decision. Because that "newborn look" tends to fade quickly, newborn photographs are typically taken shortly after you return from the hospital within 14 days from birth.
I also have a Fresh 48 session that takes place in hospital within 48 hours of birth and free NICU sessions for babies born before 32 weeks gestation.
