Being a new mom can often be overwhelming, especially when it comes to choosing the right style of photography for your newborn. The options can seem endless, and it's natural to feel a bit lost in making a decision. However, I'm here to assist you in making the process easier. To help you streamline your decision-making, I've taken the initiative to gather some information specifically related to newborn photography styles. By providing you with this information, I hope to alleviate some of the stress and help you make a more informed choice. Please feel free to share any specific preferences or concerns you have, and I'll be more than happy to assist you further.

Fresh 48 Newborn Photography

The term "Fresh 48" accurately describes the essence of this unique service. It entails capturing beautiful portraits of your newborn within the first 48 hours of their arrival, in the comforting atmosphere of the hospital. These photographers are specially chosen and authorized by the healthcare facility to provide this exclusive service, ensuring that your newborn's precious moments are preserved in the most remarkable way possible.

In-Studio Posed Newborn Photography

This style allows us to capture irresistibly adorable images of peacefully sleeping babies, artfully wrapped and gently positioned in charming props such as buckets or in a cute "froggy" pose on a bean bag. During the session, expect to spend around 2 to 3 hours in our studio, as we accommodate breaks for feeding, waiting for your baby to enter a deep slumber, and taking ample pauses as required by your little one.

Most photographers in this genre prefer to work with babies aged between 3 to 14 days. This period is ideal because newborns tend to fall into a deep sleep and are less likely to startle when touched or repositioned. Depending on the session package you choose, we may also include family and sibling photos. However, it's important to note that our primary focus lies in capturing solo portraits of the newborn, showcasing their unique and precious features.

Feel free to explore our investment options and visit our Newborn page to witness more of our exquisite work. For sneak peeks from our most recent sessions, we invite you to follow us on social media. I look forward to creating timeless and cherished memories for you and your family.

Lifestyle Newborn Photography

Lifestyle newborn photography offers the flexibility of being conducted either in the comfort of the client's home or in a studio designed to replicate a home environment. In contrast to the in-studio posed newborn style, these sessions focus on capturing a more natural and authentic portrayal of the new family. This style is perfect for those who desire to document the heartfelt connections between each family member and the newborn. The use of props in this type of photography is minimal or absent, as per the photographer's discretion.

Each lifestyle newborn photographer has their own unique style, requirements, and guidelines. It is essential to adhere to these instructions to ensure the creation of stunning photographs that align with the photographer's portfolio.

When to Reserve a Newborn Photographer

It is recommended to reserve your newborn photo session by the end of your second trimester, but it's advisable to begin researching and exploring different types of newborn photography and photographers well before that. By doing so, you can establish a connection with potential photographers and have a clear understanding of the available options. This way, you will be prepared to reserve your session by the end of your second trimester.

During your research, take the time to visit photographers' websites and explore their social media profiles to assess whether their photography style aligns with your preferences. It's important to remember that each photographer has their own unique style and genre, and their work may not necessarily match your vision. By reviewing their portfolio and body of work, you can ensure that you select a photographer whose style resonates with your aesthetic preferences.

While price is a factor to consider, it's essential to prioritize finding a photographer who can deliver the type of photography you have in mind. Sometimes clients are solely driven by price and overlook the significance of matching styles. Therefore, make sure to thoroughly evaluate each photographer's work before reserving your session with them. This ensures that you are confident in their ability to capture the kind of newborn photography that aligns with your vision and expectations.
