Your Newborn Session is scheduled in the first two weeks of your baby’s life. Babies tend to be very sleepy during this time frame allowing us to capture those artistic creations. In order to ensure that you get an appointment time within the first 2 weeks of birth it is recommended that you pre-book your session a few months in advance. Prior to your session we will discuss your style, colour tones and props to create a one of a kind session with images you will cherish for a lifetime.

It is recommended you contact the studio before your 30 weeks to discuss and plan your Maternity Portrait Session. Sessions are best scheduled between 5 – 7 months. You want to be showing but not at that uncomfortable stage. Your wardrobe is your personal style and I recommend choosing clothing based on what you would like the for the outcome of your images; soft & creamy, funky with colour etc. I suggest bringing a few of your favourite items as well such as: strapless bra, fancy panties (if you want some risqué shots). The studio is also equipped with several wraps and sheer material. Don’t forget to bring the family! Whether this is your first or 3rd baby, I love incorporating everyone into the session. This may also mean bringing along the family dog. I welcome pets to be a part of the experience – They are family too!

what’s your style Sessions can be held in my Halton Hills Studio, a location of your choice or a bit of both. The studio is also located within minutes of several fields, barns and conservation areas. I love outdoor maternity portraits. It just feels so natural to be surrounded by mother nature during this time. Whenever I get the chance I recommend scheduling your session to get those golden sunset images, and then if desired, some additional studio portraits as well Your images will be edited, so no need to worry about any stretch marks. It is not necessary but recommended that you take a bit of personal time to pamper yourself before the session. Your hands will be a big part of the images so why not treat yourself to a manicure. It is also highly recommended that you have your make up professionally done.

Combination maternity & newborn – $725 Includes: 10 Maternity & 20 Newborn High Resolutions digital images delivered digitally through a private on-line gallery. Your gallery will allow you to reprint & enlarge to your hearts desire.

Siblings are encouraged to be a part of the session and will only appear in a few portraits depending on their age. Many parents request we start with sibling portraits because they are afraid the “window of opportunity” will pass. However, I always begin your session with just your newborn.

This typically will get your toddler very interested in what I’m doing and want to be involved too. Remember your session is about 3 hours long so you may want to bring an ipad or Tablet for your child.

What Goes into a Session?

Before your session date arrives there is a lot of planning that takes place. Props and colour tones are matched to give your session a beautiful seamless flow and this takes time. Each set up for a newborn can take a lot of patience to place baby safely into a pose. I have spent several years perfecting my technique and always put your newborns safety first. If I feel your newborn is not capable of a certain pose, prop or set up – I will not attempt it.  When your session is complete, it’s not as simple as filtering through each image and posting the finals. Much work goes into each image. Newborns are red, pink or yellow toned and their skin is altered to compliment other family members in the final images. Newborns can also have marks, scratches, flaky skin etc, which are removed. And some poses require composing 2 images to create one final portrait. Never let a photographer balance your newborn in a pose that can damage the neck or spine. Post processing is also large part of creating a final image. If you are looking for a professional photographer to create soft, dreamy portraits of your new addition please contact me today.
