Capture Your Baby’s Most Precious Moments
Newborn photography is about making the most precious of times stand still. Your new little bundle of joy will grow so quickly, and new parents welcome the opportunity to freeze this moment in time with a professional photography session. As a newborn photographer, I understand the importance of patience. To capture all of the infant’s precious little details, you must wait for the right moment.
About Your Newborn Photography Session
Timing is very important in newborn photography and not just from the camera’s point of view. The best time for a session with me is 3 to 14 days old, although I believe the very best range is between 5 and 7 days. Ideally the perfect time to schedule an appointment is when you are still pregnant. These spots fill up so fast, but if you are looking to arrange a photo shoot after you have had your baby, I will do everything I can to make a slot available for your newborn. You will want to capture every movement your newborn makes—her eyes opening and glancing around, his mouth open as he sleeps. Even when crying, there is something precious and adorable about it. Time is of the essence with this style of photography, and it is the essence of your newly born infant that will make these photos perfect and endearing.
As a newborn photographer, Mary Elizabeth understands the importance of patience and doesn’t want to rush the process. To capture all of the infant’s precious little details, you must wait for the right moment. The sessions typically take between 2 and 4 hours to ensure that those perfect moments are seen and captured, but I never limit my time to a strict cut off and continue to shoot until everyone is happy! Babies live on their own schedule and during your session, we will be sure to follow it closely.
Schedule Your Newborn Photo Shoot
It is important to try and schedule your newborn photo shoot when you are still pregnant to ensure availability at the right time. Newborn sessions book up quickly and with such a small window of opportunity, inquire as soon as possible!
