And Then There Were Three… (or more)
I’m so excited you’re here and considering being a part of the growing #WAPBabies family! One of my favorite parts of being a photographer is watching my families grow! I’ve been lucky enough to photograph the wedding, then babies, and then the established family later in life. It’s always a pleasure getting to watching these babies grow through my lens!
I get asked often if I photograph newborns. The answer is… Yes! I love photographing babies, it’s quite literally the most nostalgic subject to photograph as a mom. It takes me right back to my, not so little, babies being born, smelling the new baby smell… yes, like that fresh new car smell, or that puppy breathe wittle baby puppies have; when I snuggle a brand new baby I can’t help but deeply breathe in and smell the freshness. Much like their tiny little features, that scent will change before you know it.
For most, I feel like ‘Newborn Pictures’ is a term we use to sum up the photos after the baby has arrived, but did you know there are several newborn session types? There are births, fresh 48, studio (posed), postpartum intimate sessions, and intimate lifestyle (in-home) session just to name a few. Below are the session types offered to help tell your incredible journey through motherhood.
Newborn Photo Sessions:
Fresh Forty Eight
Fresh 48 sessions are taken within the first 48 hours after baby(s) born and takes place in the setting in which you delivered baby. These are perfect for documenting those brand new details and ‘first’, but we focus on documenting all the love and snuggles as you’re still in awe of this sweet little miracle.
Intimate In-Home Newborn
In-home sessions allow your memories to be documented in the intimacy of your own home. These are awesome for showcasing the love you guys have for this tiny little miracle! Although lifestyle sessions have a complex of being non-posed sessions (and for the most part that is true) we still showcase baby in natural poses and always photograph those sweet little details for you to treasure.
Milestone portrait sessions are perfect for documenting those major milestones like sitting up, finding their toes, etc. Most aim to book their babies milestone session around 6 and 12 months old. Available in-home or in studio.
Smash & Splash
Smash & Splash sessions are SO much fun and a perfect way to capture your toddlers personality. We’ll laugh and giggle as they smash their cake and get them nice and squeaky clean with a bubble or milk bath afterwards. Available outdoors or in studio.
Grow With Me Collection
Our Grow With Me Collection is perfect for documenting the growth of your baby’s first year! From belly to toddler, you’ll have a full year of custom sessions focused on documenting every details of your baby’s first year. This includes a custom heirloom album featuring your baby’s first year.
