Ahhh…the newborn portrait session. It is one of my favorite portrait sessions for sure. Many parents will choose a Fresh 48 Newborn portrait session. These are done in the hospital and usually include parents and siblings. It’s a great time to document families meeting and getting to know their new little ones. The Fresh 48 Session is shot in documentary-style, black and white.
Alternately, you may select to have your baby’s first portrait session done in the studio. This session is great for those who want something a little more polished, maybe with some colors, textures, hats and bows. I recommend you have your newborn session photographed in your baby’s first 10-14 days before she starts to stretch out her limbs too much. Babies generally will sleep through their newborn portrait session, although most will open their eyes at some point so we can get a few shots of them awake.
And last, your home is a great place to do baby’s first portrait session. This is especially easy for families with siblings. An in-home lifestyle portrait session allows time for pictures of the family and siblings together, and portraits of the new baby by himself. Even the pets frequently get in on the action!
I’d love to talk to you about a portrait session for your newborn baby. Contact me or call me at the studio, 317-867-3723. THanks!
