NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

Gallery

Newborn photography is the perfect way to capture the next chapter! Bring a baby into the world is a joyful, life altering experience! It truly changes you from the moment you meet them. The newborn stage is such a precious time because they are so tiny and dependent on you for everything and grow so quickly. Newborn photography sessions are the perfect way to capture this very short stage.

My goal is to not only capture your portraits but create a work of art from your memories!

(Discounts are offered when capturing both a Maternity & Newborn Photography Sessions)

HAYES FAMILY’S
NEWBORN SESSION
EXPERIENCE

You were so amazing! Even amid the chaos of a well rested & fed newborn who refused to sleep & only wanted to cluster feed for 3 hours Somehow you still managed to get some amazing shots.
You were phenomenal with our 2 year old & knew exactly what to say & do to get her to do what you wanted. I wish you were available as a nanny to!
-Melanie Bisson

NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY SESSIONS

Newborns need to be 2 weeks or younger for their portrait. Newborn photos last approximately 2 to 3 hours (plenty of time for feeding and cuddling) and may be portraits of just the baby or include siblings and parents. It’s important to schedule your portrait well before each other this recommended window!

Below are sample of what you can expect to capture at your Newborn Photography Session!

THE HANDLING & CARE OF YOUR BABY DURING NEWBORN PHOTOS

“Capturing your beginning is an honor, I don’t take lightly!  I know how nerve wracking being a new parent can be.  I have been there twice myself!  Rest assured, I have been capturing newborn photography sessions for thirteen years and will safely and gently create poses that will melt your heart for years to come.  The newborn stage is absolute my favorite stage!”

CUSTOM SET DESIGNS & SIGNATURE ART PIECES

I have a small obsession with interior design, ok it’s not that small! I am constantly redecorating my home, watching HGTV, and shopping at every HomeGoods around! I use my love for interior design in my studio and in your portraits! I custom build each scene for your portrait based off the decor in your home- taking into account the colors of your walls, the tones of your hardwood floors, and the overall style and decorative pieces! From the scenes I build, to the frames and types of photographs I recommend for you, your final art pieces will look like they were created just for you! Below are samples of scenes I design, the props that are available for you to use, and some of my signature art products!

YOUR QUESTIONS

I’m sure you have a million questions! I recommend filling out the contact form below so I can call you to chat about all the details. In the meantime I have listed some of my most frequently asked question below.

When should I schedule my baby's Newborn Photography Session?
The window for Newborn Portraits is VERY small as babies need to be two weeks of age or younger. Typically a baby’s first growth spurt will happen during their third week and they will become more alert and be hungry little monsters during the day. The goal is is to capture their portraits before that while they are still in their sleepy stage. This is why I recommended you schedule your session well before the baby arrives to leave us plenty of time to chat about your style and plan out your custom scenes. If your baby has already arrived and your just getting around to thinking about Newborn Portrait don’t worry I can still accommodate you. I would be honored to capture your beginning!
What if my baby is past the newborn age deadline, can I still do pictures?
Don’t worry! I have been able to capture beautiful artwork for all my clients regards of their baby’s age. While I may not be able to get your baby into some of the more unique poses you see on my website there are so many sweet wrapped poses and others we can still capture. I would recommend filling out the contact form below so I can give you a call to discuss your baby’s age and your goals for the portraits.
Do you supply props for Maternity & Newborn Portraits?
Absolutely!! I have a huge selection of props for both Maternity & Newborn Portraits. So rest assure even if you have nothing at all I will have more then you need for your entire session.
What's included in my session?

All sessions include a pre-session consultation (done over the phone) to discuss goals for your session and artwork, style, clothes and props to bring, etc.

Newborn Sessions include two to three hours of photographing & 3 to 5 scenes plus portraits with moms, dads, and siblings.

A preview and ordering session held approximately two weeks later at MAC Photography where I can help you narrow down your choices and place your order. (all orders must be placed at this time, I do not offer proofing websites)

A design consultation to talk about the best ways to display your custom art using interior design software that will allow you to see your portraits on your very own walls (done during a preview session).

How do I see all my portraits after my session?
Be prepared to be WOWED! Approximately two weeks after your portrait you will come back in to MAC Photography for your preview and ordering session. At this session you will not only be able to view your artwork as if you were in a movie theater but you will also be able to see your artwork on your very own walls. I will guide you through selecting artwork that will compliment your home and melt your heart for years to come! *Please note all orders must be placed at this time, I do not offer proofing websites.
What type of artwork packages do you have?
I have very flexible packages building options that will allow you to pick and choose what works best for you. One option will allow you to keep all your memories plus a signature art product and the other will allow you to narrow to only your favorites. To find out full details lets chat!

I feel very fortunate to have had Michelle referred to me when I had my twins. She was amazingly skilled and also an incredibly sweet person and I will forever cherish the memories she captured. Thank you, Michelle!
