Welcome Baby Session


While birth photography is an amazing way for families to preserve an astounding event, and enjoy the details that they missed when they were in the midst of labor, or see the amazing bond between a husband and wife from a different perspective,  it is not for everyone.  I have introduced these wonderful sessions called “Welcome Baby”sessions.

They take place within the first 48 hours of baby’s life, allowing you to capture that crinkly newborn newness that changes so quickly, even from birth to the time of the 5-10 day newborn session!

How does it work?

The Welcome Baby Session takes place during the first 48 hours of baby’s life. This brand new, amazing stage of getting to know your sweet little one has so many firsts, and so many details that will quickly change, even before you have a chance to do a newborn session at 5-10 days old. It’s an opportunity to provide a gift to your child who will one day look back and see just what an amazing, joyful and cherished event his birth was, and witness the love that was showered on her when you first met.  Those wrinkly feet and brand new, tiny eyelashes and fingernails don’t stay wrinkly and that tiny for more than a few days. What a blessing to be able to preserve it!

These lifestyle photos are different than a Newborn Session in that they are not posed. They are photojournalistic images that tell the story of your baby’s first hours of life, and that capture the details of a brand new life.

What does it include?

~Your pre-session consultation – we will go over details that will make your session a joy and a blessing!  When to call me, how to prepare (e.g. take a special outfit to the hospital with you, and mention to the nurse that you’re expecting me…)

~Your session – the time and talent of your photographer. While I am not “on call” as I am with a birth, I will be available within 48 hours after your baby is born for your session. I will spend approximately an hour with you, documenting this precious, brand new life, and getting your very first, beautiful, family photos!

~Your package – USB with images from your gallery with print rights up to 8×10 and a proof book of your images.
