Newborn Experience | Featured Product – Albums | Exeter, NH

Displaying your treasured portraits is the mission of my business. Yes, I’m a photographer and I capture your beautiful family. However, I always start every session with the end in mind. My job as your photographer isn’t complete until your amazing photos are lovingly displayed in your home. 

It’s not only important to create family portrait artwork to display but to treasure forever. Imagine your grandchildren and their grandchildren looking through your photos and knowing their family roots. This is so important, but understandably, creating these prints and albums adds to your long to-do list! 

Be honest with me, how long did it take for you to create your wedding album? One month? One year? Is it still not done!? This is not meant to shame you but to share the honest truth. Life is busy and we don’t get to every project that we know is important. 

Newborn Photography Packages

If it took you a while to create your wedding album, then imagine your newborn album! I don’t need to tell you that the newborn phase is a crazy and beautiful time that goes by in a blink. All of a sudden, you’ll realize your baby is a toddler. Blink again, and he’s off to kindergarten. My newborn photography packages are created with this in mind. I take the printing and displaying off your to-do list completely. All you have to do is tell me your hopes and dreams for your portraits and I take care of the rest! 

Why Choose a Treasured Portrait Album?

There are so many products to choose from, but let me highlight one of my favorites – the album! It’s no surprise that albums can invoke the strongest emotions because you can see and feel your images to allow the memories to wash over you. You and your child can look through this keepsake and remember what it was like to meet your precious newborn. 

Another incredible feature of the album is that you can pass this artwork down to your children. They can look through the story of their life and feel reminded of how loved they are! Choose an album that’s designed to last for decades so that it will be passed down for generations.

Preparing for Your Safe Newborn Session

Preparing for Your Safe Newborn Session

The first few weeks with your new baby are a whirlwind of love and beautiful chaos! By having newborn photos scheduled, you won’t have to worry about anything in those sleep-deprived days after the birth.  Your sweet babe is only so tiny and new for such a short time. Every time you look at your newborn photos you’ll remember all the love and amazement you felt during those first few weeks. 

Learn how to plan for and prepare for your newborn session along with how I’m keeping my tiny clients safe during this crazy pandemic.

When to Schedule and Plan Your Newborn Photos 

The best time to reach out to a newborn photographer is well before the birth! I highly recommend reaching out when you are about halfway through your pregnancy. It’s important to give yourself time to find the perfect photographer and get your newborn session on the calendar. Many newborn (and birth) photographers limit how many sessions they schedule per month, so grab your spot as early as you can! 

The ideal time to photograph a newborn is two weeks after the birth, but really, anytime in that first month or two is fine. The photos featured in this post are from when this sweet baby girl is 6 weeks old. The first six weeks or so is when your baby is the most sleepy and snuggly for great posing, BUT whenever you feel ready to have them done is fine!

Worried about how you’ll possibly feel ready for a photography session a mere couple weeks after birth? Let me help!

4 Tips for a Great Newborn Session

I know that thinking about the first two weeks after birth seems like a crazy time to let a photographer into your home to take photographs of your baby and family. Fear not! I bring everything needed for the shoot and here are 4 tips to help you prepare for your newborn session.

tips for a great newborn session

  1. Don’t Stress About the House at All

My friend, I cannot emphasize how little the state of your house bothers me. You just had a baby! I can make any house situation work with no problem. There will be zero judgment at all. In fact, I bet your house will still be more organized than mine!

  1. Try to Feed About a Half Hour Before (but snacks are fine!)

Try to feed your baby about a half-hour before the session is to start. This will hopefully give baby time to eat, burp, and be sleepy in time for the photos! If the baby needs a snack during the session, it’s totally fine! I’m very used to it.

  1. Give Yourself Some Time to Glam

If you can, try to give yourself some time to look nice before the session. Take a little extra time in the shower and put on some makeup if that makes you feel good! Trust me, you are so beautiful no matter what, but taking some time for yourself will help you feel relaxed and ready. 

  1. Give Yourself Grace, Mama 

No matter what happens, you will have treasured photos of your baby. Don’t worry about the house or if your newborn will be cooperative. Your baby will be absolutely perfect. I’ve seen it all and worked with all different babies. It’s all good!

How I’m Safely Photographing Newborns

The safety of your sweet baby and your entire family is the most important thing to me! I’m always very careful and especially so now. Here are a few ways that I am safely photographing newborn babies. 

First, I am limiting the number of sessions I schedule per week to only two. I do this to limit the number of families I interact with. Second, I always wear my mask during every session. Finally, I make sure to sanitize my hands and any items we may use during the session. 

Display Your Newborn Session Without Adding to Your To-Do List 

The session isn’t over until you have your newborn photos displayed how you want them without adding an item to your to-do list. All you need to do is tell me how you envision these photos displayed in your home, and I take it from there! Whether you’re looking to create an heirloom album or a gallery wall, your photos will be where you can enjoy them every single day!

I would love to be your newborn photographer! Nothing would give me more joy than to capture those first precious moments with your new baby. Send me a note to schedule your free consultation.
