Maternity & Newborn

Here’s what you should be looking for in a  Newborn photographer: 

  • Does the photographer’s portfolio showcase quality images?
  • Do the photographs look natural and timeless?
  • Does all the photographer’s work have a consistent style?
  • Is your photographer properly vaccinated?
  • Is your photographer versed on newborn safety and safely posing baby?

THE Experience

Studio newborn sessions generally last about two hours, allowing plenty of time for feedings and diaper changes to keep your baby content. I recommend booking the session based on the baby’s feeding schedule. Sessions are scheduled in the morning time for that gorgeously soft, glowing natural light. I love pure, natural and clean images so I prefer not use a lot of props.

If baby feeds every 2-3 hours, you will want to come to the studio at feeding time and feed the baby right before the session. You can do so while I am setting up and baby will already be in the warmth of my studio. (I keep the studio at an 80 degree temperature for newborn sessions so please dress accordingly if you plan to stay in the room and watch me work.

MY PHOTOGRAPHIC Style

My boutique maternity and newborn sessions are a unique and luxurious experience. I strive to create a relaxed and memorable experience for you while capturing a variety of natural portraits to truly capture the beauty of this special time. With an eye for freezing perfect moments and unique perspectives, I create maternity and newborn portraits that are beautiful, intimate, and capture genuine emotion. I will style, pose and apply my expertise with the use of artful lighting and retouching to create the very best portraits. I love getting to know each of my clients and creating one-of-a-kind art that you will treasure forever.

SCHEDULING

Please schedule your newborn session before your baby is born. I recommend booking your newborn session during your second trimester. Capturing your newborn within the first two weeks of life while they are still sleeping soundly and curling up into those adorable womb-like poses makes all the difference. Newborn photography is best scheduled within 5-10 days old. For babies that are born early and spend time in the hospital, I recommend scheduling the session within the first week of being sent home. I encourage families to book their newborn photography session as early as possible to ensure my availability. When your baby is born, you should contact me as soon as possible to adjust the session date & time. If you’ve already had your little one, I will try my best to accommodate you or at least recommend a fellow photographer that may have availability.    

HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

To book your newborn session, you must: sign a digital contract and pay the $250 session fee to hold your session date and time in my calendar. Both maternity & newborn sessions require a minimum product purchase of $250 from your viewing session within two weeks of the photo session. Online viewing gallery links will not be released until the minimum product purchase payment of $250 is received.

  • Heirloom Albums

An album is fabulous way to preserve your family’s most special moments. These heirlooms are made of the highest quality inks and papers so you will be able to pass them on to your children and grandchildren and will be in your family’s homes for generations to come if properly taken care of. All of albums I offer include leather or linen covers and can be personalized with your names and wedding date or you may have a photo cameo on the cover.

Professional quality prints, printed products and wall art are also made of the highest quality materials that are guaranteed to never fade or warp.

DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL?

I do not charge for travel on a wedding day, within the state of New Jersey. If you would like your engagement session to be photographed at a location farther than 30 miles for 08735, there will be a travel fee associated to cover my cost of travel since I do offer them complimentary to provide my clients with a personalized wedding experience. I do charge a travel fee for portrait sessions outside of the 30 miles radius of 08735. The cost varies based on location distance.
