Where do I begin, newborns are my ultimate favorite subject to photograph, they are the purest of all and a complete pleasure to have in my studio. Every newborn is different, you have some that are calm and easily flexible, others that are full of smiles but fight their sleep. Many look at newborn photography and think “well that looks easy” but that is not necessarily true. A newborn session can range from an hour to four hours depending on the baby. You might be asking yourself “but how can that be, my baby sleeps all day”, yes I know, but your baby is fully dressed and is not being bothered while he/she is sleeping. There’s a range of tricks and patience that come into play for newborn photography.
It is highly recommended expecting parents prebook their due date immediately so the session fees are paid before baby arrives (when you book, your due date is written down in my books; session is scheduled once baby is born).
Spots are limited and sometimes I cannot squeeze in last minute request. It is best for baby to be between 5-14 days as they are the most flexible and sleepier at that age. All sessions are held in my Belleville, NJ studio.
