PHOTOS THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME

CONGRATULATIONS!

Bringing your newborn into your family is one of the most amazing experiences any parent can have and one that you will want to cherish forever. A newborn photography session is the perfect way of giving yourself a timeless reminder of your baby which you can share with your friends and family.

 

INVESTMENT

A photo is something that stops a moment in time. To help us remember how you felt….right at that point in time. Their smell, their touch, their innocence and true beauty of being a newborn. I love creating works of art for my clients to cherish every part and moment of their newborn – from their beautiful eyelashes, squishy lips, and soft wisps of hair, to their tiny hands and feet. In years to come, my images will take you back to the day your newborn was tiny enough to fit in the palm of your hand and the days when they fell asleep on your chest... A picture is worth a thousand words, but the memories are priceless.

 

WHEN TO BOOK

If you want some adorable newborn photos don't wait to book your session! The best time to capture these adorable moments is when your baby is between 3-14 days old, where they can still be able to curl back into the fetal position and are sleepy/snugged. However, I believe every family is deserving of beautiful photos of their tiny newborn baby and I'd happily take newborns up to 6 weeks old. After 6 weeks I recommend a baby/milestone session. To avoid disappointment, please make sure that bookings are made in advance. I recommend booking your appointment during your second trimester. If your baby arrives early or late, then let me know at the earliest opportunity so I can fit you in as needs be. To book your session, please fill out my contact form so we can arrange the perfect day for your little one's photoshoot. 

 

RETAINER FEE

A $100 retainer fee is payable at the time of booking in order to secure your spot. This retainer fee is non-refundable, however it is transferable with a 24 hour in advance notice. The remaining balance is due the day of the session. ​

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I reserve my newborn session?


The sooner, the better! The best time to reserve your session is before your baby is born. I always recommend when you are in your thrid trimester. We will schdule your session based on your due date. We may need to adjust the date depending on when your baby is born.




How old should my baby be for their newborn session?


Ideally when your baby is between 3-14 days old is the best time to book your newborn session. At this age they are still able to curl up in a fetal position, are still sleepy and snug. I do take newborn bookings up to 6 weeks old.




What if my baby arrives early or late?


Let me know at the earliest opprotunity so I can fit you in my schdule as need be.




Where do the sessions take place?


Sessions take place at my private, cozy studio storefront located in Lake Elsinore, California.




What do I need to bring to the session?


1) DIAPERS, diapers and more diaper... WIPES too! Accidents happen all the time, so please always be prepared and come with backup. 2) PACIFIRES... Between posing and changing outfits, baby may become fussy. It is very important to minimize upsetting your baby and maximizing comfort. Pacifires will help make the session go more smoothly. 3) Feedings... If you're nursing you are good to go, but also bring any bottles for feedings if need be. 4) Bibs 5) Change of cloths (especially shirts for the parents taking photos). 6) Please feel free to bring any snacks/food as the session may take time.




How long is the session and what should I exspect?


Newborn sessions typically take 2-4 hours. Please make sure your baby is well fed before the photoshoot so they are less fidgety. Newborn sessions are a lot more of feeding and soothing than they are photographing, so please be paitent with me and exspect alot of down time. Meanwhile relax, put your feet up and let me capture these beautiful moments for you and your family.




Who supplies the outfits and props?


I do! I provide outfits and props from my ever growing collection of knitted mohair wraps, pjs, stuffys, bonnets, outfits and headbands, hats, buckets, beds, blankets, flokati's and more.




Can we take family and sibling photos?





How are you keeping everyone safe during the pandemic?





What are fine art digital backdrop images?


It is the combination of two or more different images together to create one. Although it may sound simple, creating this is a process and can take hours. For me the results are dreamlike images and full of color. Magical and beautiful.




What types of payments are accepted?


Cash and all majoy credit cards.





Let's work together!
