Birth Photography and Fresh 48 - Baby Raylan
 

We planned a birthing photo session for baby Raylan, but this turned into a C-Section and unfortunately was not allowed into the operating room (hospital policy). I there right after though to take some first pics and a couple hours later in the recovery room with more family waiting to meet sweet Mr. Raylan.

 
Newborn Siyaan - 18 days old
 

At 18 days old, Siyaan was a little older than I usually prefer to photograph newborns. After the preferred first 14 days they wake up more and want to feed more and sense that mom is around so they may wake up more making for longer sessions. Although this was a really long session we managed to get some sleepy photos.

 
Newborn William - 8 days old
 

This was such a fast last minute newborn session. His mom contacted me couple of day AFTER he was born, came to meet me at the studio AND booked and came for his session all before he was 8 days old! Usually sessions are booked a little bit ahead of time but I am so glad we got to make this work.

 
Maternity and Milk Bath Session - Shannon 36 Weeks
 

Shannon opted for some studio work and followed by a Milk Bath. Sinking into the warm bath filled with fresh flowers and aromatherapy oils she couldn't understand why not more people want to do this. You only have to lay and relax, close your eyes and sooth your hard working, changing body while I snap away. You will totally forget you are busy with a photo shoot.

 
Baby Milestones: When should you photograph your baby?
 

Yes, I know, your baby is just perfect and you want to photography him/her every moment. Although I truly believe that parents should have point and shoot cameras with them at all times, I believe that professional photos can be an amazing addition to remembering these amazing moments. I know hiring a professional photographer can be a little overwhelming should you desire pictures every single day. However, because the quality and artistic talent of a professional can be completely amazing and priceless, I will explain when it is the best time to photograph your new little addition given your baby’s milestones!

THE MATERNITY SESSION

For me there is nothing more beautiful than an expectant mom. This is such an exciting time waiting to meet your baby. And even if you don't feel it, you are gorgeous. If you are still pregnant and still haven’t photographed your “bump” by a professional now is a great time to have these done. This is part of my baby plan if you should choose to include this - which I highly recommend. No mom, no matter how terrible she felt on the day has ever regretted taking photo of this time in your family's history. These sessions are amazing! A great addition to your baby book or your luxury album celebrating the life of your new baby, from beginning to, well another beginning!

THE NEWBORN SESSION

Feeling like you were just hit by a train? A little tired? Most likely. During your baby’s first week of life, you and your family are no doubt going through amazing changes and adjustments. Trying to figure out a lot of things. This is the most unbelievable time to have your baby photographed. I encourage parents to bring their newborn babies in BEFORE 2 weeks of age but even BEFORE 1 week of age, is ideal! Most are looking to have their newborn photographed naked with perhaps an artistic pose. Newborn babies that are just a few days are able to be posed, comfortable naked (as long as they are warm and their bellies are full), and cute as can be. During this time (as a parent of two I know this) we are too tired to truly appreciate the tiny toes, the blistered lips, the wrinkled back. I'll try and capture all these tiny details, and create some amazing artistic images. Your baby changes so fast, don’t let this time pass you by before you can capture it professionally.

THE 3-4 MONTH SESSION

You’ve had a newborn session, now what? Your baby is changing by the day! You want to make sure you don’t miss anything but you can't have them photographed professionally every 5 minutes. I recommend the next time your child makes strides in their development is the best time to bring them back. At 3 months, your baby is now smiling! Yep, they know who you are! Babies at this age will smile and interact a lot. This is something that they did not do as a newborn. Some babies with also be able to have some tummy time. If you are finding that your baby is within this age group and is not yet ready for belly time, which is perfectly fine, wait, YES WAIT, until these shots are possible!

THE 6 MONTH SESSION

About this age, there is another milestone, your baby will be grabbing for toys, laughing, and even sitting up! This is a great age and one of my favorite to photograph. Again, if your baby is not yet sitting up, wait a few weeks until that is possible. Please know that sitting up with a parents help and balancing does count! I don’t think babies need a lot of props to enhance photos or clothing for that matter, but as they get older adding them can be fun and their personalities shine so much that your little one for sure be the center of attention in any photo!

THE 9 MONTH SESSION

This is another one that some choose to skip. Remember we want to count milestones right? Well, if you capture baby at 6 months, and then at 9 months, not too much has changed. Maybe crawling, and if you want that captured great. If you want to wait, I tell my clients to wait until something is different. And babies develop differently as well.

ONE YEAR

Crawling, standing with help or even walking. Teeth! It’s all here by now. This is a milestone for sure! Never fear if your baby is not walking yet you will want to get their portraits done at 1 year! Some of my clients will wait just a couple weeks after their birthday because they know for sure they may be walking. Again, it is up to you. Celebrating your baby’s first year is for both of you! You have been with your little one now for 1 year and can’t imagine life any different. It is time to capture another fantastic moment if their/your life!

AFTER ONE YEAR. NOW WHAT?

Iris_blog9.jpg

Stay in touch. Imagine the images, the collages, the montages capturing your baby from the bump, to 1 year, to after? As your photographer I will help you create amazing products you will cherish forever. You will want to capture your toddler and child again at milestones in their life. I encourage every 6 months after they are 1. Once they are 3, time appears to slow down a bit and most of my clients intend to shoot once a year, some still remain on the 6 month time frame. Bring them back for those missing front teeth (so cute), the teenage years, the senior photos and beyond.

I offer incentives at different times of the year to encourage more priceless moments for my clients, take advantage of all those opportunities as I have NEVER heard a parent complain that they have too many pictures of their child!
