I am so thrilled that you are considering a Newborn Session with Lynn Roberts Photography. It is always a pleasure and a privilege to photograph mama’s-to-be, newborns and babies. Please take a few moments to browse through the info below and imagine your ideal portrait session. I look forward to meeting you!
I love beautiful light, simplicity and neutral, calming textures and tones. And I love newborns and babies. Each child is unique and perfectly beautiful just as they are — from the tiniest little eyelashes to their precious little fingers and toes. Newborn portraits help to capture these all-too-fleeting details.
Sessions are easy going even if your little one isn’t. Patience and awe accompany the time spent capturing your brand new babe. The end result: images that celebrate life and are artistically refined for you to treasure as a keepsake.
Ideally, newborn sessions should take place within your baby’s first 10 days while they are still sleepy and curl up naturally. Sessions typically last 2-4 hours to accommodate feeding, changing and the time it takes to settle baby.
Studio vs Lifestyle:
The natural light Studio is perfect for mums and dads who don’t feel up to preparing their home for a photo session or who would like a well-lit, calm and peaceful environment to escape to for their baby’s first photo session. Everything is set up for a newborn and there are plenty of home comforts for sleep-deprived mums and dads too. I have a posing bean bag designed especially for newborn portraiture as well as a range of blankets, backdrops, props, wraps and lovely things crafted especially for newborns.
Lifestyle Sessions are aimed at capturing baby’s first few days at home with mum and dad cuddling, feeding, settling or simply admiring their newborn in the comfort of their own home. Baby’s new cot and room, mum and dad’s bed, the family couch — all become settings for capturing unique, memorable images of a time that is all too fleeting.
Preparing for Your Newborn Session:
I will provide you with a simple to-do checklist and info sheet about what to expect as soon as your session is booked. This includes tips for bringing along another child for sibling photos.
The session fee and client contract are required to reserve your session. The fee is non-refundable but you can transfer it to another date, if needed. There are other milestones to capture and sessions can also be held at 4 months, 7 months and one year.
The session fee covers pre-session consultation (optional), the session itself, the photographer’s time and talent and 20 beautifully retouched images delivered to a secure, online gallery within 3 weeks of your session.
