First of all, congratulations on the new bundle of joy you are expecting. Becoming a parent is truly the most important and rewarding job you will ever have! Newborn sessions are so fun! Those sweet brand new little angels are perfect.
You will never forget the first moment you laid eyes on your daughter or the first time you heard your son cry.
These are truly magical moments. As much as we hope and pray they will stay little forever, they grow up anyway.
Those first Those first few weeks seem to fly by and each moment becomes a fleeting memory.
LEDELHVAs a photographer, I strive to capture those first few weeks and turn the resulting images into a work of fine art to be treasured forever. Newborn photography requires a large amount of planning and an insane amount of patience, and youll be happy to know I will handle all of that :)
Custom photography is simply that a custom experience tailored to suit you, your style, your personality and your needs. When I am contacted for a newborn photography session far enough in advance of the actual session date that is scheduled, I have the luxury of ordering pprops such as hats, blankets, baskets, etc that are suited entirely for your session. You can not walk into a cookie-cutter studio and expect them to have a Dr Seuss hat to match the theme in your babys nursery and even pair that hat with a backdrop that fits your color scheme. With custom photography (and enough time bebeforehand!) that is entirely possible!
I can also guarantee that the photographer from your cookie-cutter photography session will not be going home that night to spend many hours editing those photos, removing blemishes, blogging about your session, and going the extra mile for customer #2634. Custom photographers do! We spend many hours perfecting your images to create a unique gallery that truly makes our clients personalties shine through; a gallery that will preserve an incredibly important memory in your lifetime.
When was the last time you had portraits made by a large chain studio and actually had the luxury of not leaving your home? Or your photo session including props that were custom ordered just for your session? Did he/she seek to find out who you are, what your style is, what your goal is with the session ththey performed? Can you even remember the name of your cookie-cutter in-store photographer? The answer to all of that is probably no!
SUHSDULQJIRU\RXUVHVVLRQOnce you decide to schedule a session with me, we will set a tentative date based on your due date. I understand that babies rarely come when predicted and I will accommodate their personal plans for arrival. But a due date will give us a base line. Once your infant is born, please get in touch with me at please get in touch with me at your earliest convenience to finalize the perfect time.
Babies are best photographed in the first 10 days of their new little lives.
They sleep better, dont have colic yet, and usually havent started developing baby acne or cradle cap. Some mommies will still be recovering in the first 10 days - this is absolutely fine!From the comfort of your own home, you can have beautiful professional images! Heck, You can even wear your PJs if you want!
GXULQJ\RXUVHVVLRQOnce I arrive, I will need some time to access lighting conditions and set up my portable studio. This is usually the best time tofill babys belly.
I start my sessions by taking some portraits of your baby on a beanbag. After that After that we will move on to some relationship poses with Mom, Dad and Siblings.
Some parents chose to be a part of the session, others would rather relax and have the spotlight on baby. Completely your choice!
Once finished, I will pack up all of my equipmentand return your home to pre-session condition.You get to cuddle with your little anddream about all the beautiful portraits that will soon be yours. I go through the images from your session and select the bestbest. Once I have the final cut selected I will thoroughly edit each individual picture.Your images will be ready for viewing within two weeks. I will walk you through everystep of the ordering process and any design work.You now have precious imagesto remind you of the innocence of your nnewborn, and captured what those first few days of life were like. BLISS!
Most importantly, please do not feel the need to clean or tidy up your home before I knock on your door. Im a mom too, and you just had a babyThrow your feet up and snuggle with that little one! With your permission, I may need to move a chair or table, but I promise I will put everything back to how it was when I arrived.
Please make sure the room or rooms are warm.. Your baby will usually have their clothesoff for most or at least part of the session so it needs to be extra warm.
YYou should wear lightweight breathable clothing since it will be very warm where we are shooting. If you would like to be in some of the photographs we will shoot those first before we get too toasty.
If possible, please keep baby minimally dressed but warm and wrapped in a blanket.Just a diaper, loosely fastened would be perfect. Clothes, socks and diapers canleave lines in their skin that would need to be edited out of babys photographs laterand clothing changes sometimes agitate baby.
I suggest that I suggest that your nails be manicured or cut cleanly as your hands may be in photosholding your sweet baby. I also ask that you not wear any necklaces, watches orlong earrings since they may distract from baby, this goes for dad too!
If there are any special items such as a teddy bear, bracelet, hat, headband, blanketsmade by or used by loved ones, helmets or uniforms [firefighters, military, athletes,etc] please have them handy. I LOVE a photograph with meaning and will includeanything that you hold dear. I will bring a few props as well.
Please do not Please do not feel like you need to be ready to go as soon as I walk in the door! I willneed about 1530 minutes to get everything unloaded and set up. While I am settingup, feel free to feed baby so that he/she will have a nice full tummy when we start. Its veryimportant that baby be burped well, also!
