Finding the right newborn photographer, someone who is trained properly and someone who will take the utmost care with your precious baby can be a daunting task! Please feel free to send a message or call so that we can better discuss your needs.

Before your session:    Upon booking a newborn session, we will discuss how to style your baby’s session so that your final gallery will be works of art that you can’t wait to have hanging on your walls. A questionnaire will be sent over that will assist me in customizing your session.

When your itty bitty makes their arrival:    Once your little one arrives, you will let us know within 24-48 hours. Our first question to you is always going to be asking how you and baby are doing. We want mom and baby to both be well and healthy and then we will set your session date. Newborn sessions are best scheduled between 5 and 12 days after birth. (If you got around to setting up your session after your baby made their debut, please don’t hesitate to contact us so that we can make sure and get your session scheduled.)

When your session date arrives:     When your session comes around, we will have you come to our private studio where we provide a large variety of outfits and props for your baby’s session. Since we will have discussed all of your wants ahead of time, we will already be set up and ready to go when you arrive. We will have put together, and created, various set ups and outfits to customize your little lady or gents session, just for them. While you’re here, you will have a refrigerator full of cold drinks and light snacks provided for you. It is usually best if siblings come after their baby brother or sisters individual photos, but, sometimes that just isn’t an option and that is no problem at all. Before we get started, we will go over some simple information again to ensure that you’re both comfortable. Handing your tiny, little human over to another person can be nerve-wracking, but, we have photographed over 500 babies and, we promise, that we will care for them as if they were our own. Parents are always welcomed, and encouraged, to visit with us and watch as we capture sweet portraits of your baby. Although, it wouldn’t be surprising to have dad lay down and take nap; it’s happened more than once and that is just fine too! You are welcome to sit back and relax, enjoy some snacks, catch up on a phone call or even a nap.    Baby Photographer Services columbus ga

We have been professionally trained in newborn photography and we mentor and teach newborn posing and safety to other aspiring newborn portrait artists. Various poses will require a composite image (multiple images merged into one) to ensure your little ones safety and we will explain how all of that works so that you are assured of your baby’s safety. The studio is kept at a cozy 78 degrees. Those itty, bitty, little ones have a tough time keeping warm without clothes on so we make sure that their comfort is our priority. Your tiny human is likely to poop or pee, or sometimes both, on us and/or our props and outfits. Do not worry about it! It’s an occupational hazard and we are well-prepared.      Baby Photographer Services columbus ga

After your session:     Once your gallery is complete, usually just a few days after your session, we will let you know and we will schedule your gallery reveal! The reveal is one of our favorite parts. During your viewing you will get to watch all of your baby’s photos in a beautiful slideshow, set to music. Then, together, we will go over your images to help you choose your favorites to hang on your walls. We offer a variety of collections, including canvases, heirloom wood prints, metal, albums, gift prints and digital files. Our studio and office are filled with a variety of the products that we offer so that you can see how beautiful quality, heirloom products are. We understand that many of our clients are military and family members are often thousands of miles away. In order to ensure that your baby’s grandparents, aunts and uncles can get quality prints of their newest family member, we offer drop shipping to their location.

Newborns are my absolute favorite! We understand how fleeting these moments are. We hope to be able to help capture all of their tiny little features for you; their toes, those little tufts of hair, tiny fingers, those spontaneous baby smiles, how squishy they are and how brand new they will be for such a very short time.
