Who can resist a wrinkly, squishy, brand new baby?  I sure can’t!  I love doing newborn portraits.

Newborn sessions take a little longer than regular photo sessions.  Depending on the sleepiness of the baby they can take 1 to 3 hours.

Your newborn session is best done in the first 7-10 days after birth.  I understand you won’t know exactly what date that will be ahead of time in most cases, but contact me and give me the few weeks around your due date to note on my calendar and we can schedule the actual date of the session after your baby is born.

Sessions are done on location in your home.  I bring everything to you.  I allow extra time for baby care.  As a mother I know how it goes when you have a brand new baby, so you don’t have to stress over a little poop or a hungry baby!  Your session will go smoother if you can keep the baby awake for a few hours prior to your session, then feed your baby just before we begin.  That will hopefully result in a content, sleepy baby ready to be posed into adorable positions and photographed.

My newborn photography is mainly journalistic rather than posed with props. I love to capture photos of mama and baby, the new family, and all the tiny newborn features.

Newborn sessions are $250 and includes all of the photos in a private online gallery.  Prints can be ordered directly from your gallery.

Andrea - I am 17 weeks pregnant and due with a little girl on November 20th, 2015. I am just beginning my search for a newborn photographer and wanted to learn more about you, how you like to do newborn sessions, and your pricing, etc. is it too early to start looking for a photographer? I’m new to all of this! I am located in Lexington on a horse farm near the Horse Park. Look forward to hearing from you!

Brittany - Hi, I am interested in a newborn photography session. I am due August 31st – would you have availability around then or shortly thereafter? Also, are the photographs published in a gallery with required purchase and, if so, how much does each photograph typically run? Thank you!
