Newborn Portraiture

The first few days of a babies life are so precious and because babies change so quickly it’s important to capture the freshness and the small details that will soon change. Emily’s specialty is working with and photographing newborns. Emily combines years of experience working with infants and her photographic passion to create truly individual works of art that capture the uniqueness of your child.

When to Schedule your Session

Emily leaves space in her schedule for newborns but in order to ensure a session when you baby is born please call while you are pregnant to book and make arrangements for the session to take place after your babies birth. Booking ahead of time allows Emily to note your due date on her calendar and make sure space is available for you once your little one arrives.

Emily prefers to photograph newborns with in the first 10 days of life – days 6-8 are usually the best for capturing newborns while they are still bendy enough to easily pose. Older babies tend to sleep less soundly and are more likely to be colicky or have newborn acne. Most babies do best in the earlier hours of the day so morning sessions are preferred.

Every session is unique to your child. Newborn sessions are slow paced with a lot of feeding and soothing. It’s not unusual for a newborn session to take upwards of 4 hours, however, Emily is usually able to capture enough images and complete sessions in about 1.5 hours.
