Newborn Session are my speciality! I absolutely love shooting newborn sessions.
A newborn session is a unique session, requires some additional training and technique to achieve those adorable baby poses. A Newborn session is scheduled within the first 14 days of baby being born. Newborn sessions are pre-booked in advance so that you are ready to do your shoot with that first week you bring your baby home. Prescheduling allows me to block off a date for you in my calendar so I can get you into the studio asap!
It is imperative you book your newborn session while you are in your 2nd trimester as I am typically booked months in advance and I typically don’t shoot newborns after 3 weeks of age ( plus they are almost a month old anyway!) It is possible to do a newborn session post 14 days of age; however, newborns spend more time awake after the 2 week mark, and tend to be more difficult to pose into those poses you see in my gallery.
Newborn sessions are held at my new Studio in Fremont, CA on weekdays mornings only. I will have all the necessary equipment ready for you. I set up and prepare everything so you can relax and let me do the work. I have 2 babies myself and I love to help out when I can! My studio will have everything we need to capture those itty bitty toes and cute newborn poses.
All poses will be practiced with the utmost safety at all times. Please keep in mind not all babies perform the same poses.My philosophy is a happy baby is a safe baby, so we will not put he/she in harms way or dangerous poses.
I have attended several newborn workshops dedicated to newborn poses, newborn soothing practices, tips, tricks, lighting, and newborn safety.
Full Newborn session $985
A full 3 hour newborn session includes several different poses, several different combinations of baskets and buckets, blankets, textures, and props. The sessions lasts much longer to allow for much more soothing time, and naked baby shots and more complex posing. The session includes all edited high resolution digital images hand retouched, polished, and edited. Your gallery can be anywhere from 40-100+ images depending on what the baby will let us do in 3 hours time! This session is for immediate family only, not extended family.
Mini Newborn Session $595
A Mini newborns session is a much shorter session than a Full Session at one hour. The session includes a more simplistic approach to capture that newbie age, without removing diaper and without naked poses. These poses are less posed, more wraps, yet stylistic and affordable. The gallery can be anywhere from 20-50 images depending on what the baby will let us do in 1 hour! This session is for Baby only, no siblings or adults. For a family session, please see the Full Session.
ADD ON MINI MATERNITY SESSION $500
* 30-45 MINUTES, includes immediate family. Plan to shoot this at about 8 months pregnant. Session will be at a mutually agreed upon location within 15 miles of Fremont, California. Travel available upon request. Includes all edited digital images in high res with personal print release. Please book 2-3 months ahead of time as weekday evenings are limited space and are booked first come first served.
