Newborn Photographer Atlanta
When being a newborn photographer Atlanta includes snuggling babies as cute as Harry, you really cannot complain! This little guy did so great for his session. He ate right when he got there, and then slept the entire time. I didn’t hear him fuss a peep until his session was over.
Newborn Posing and Safety
I started focusing on newborns about 2 years ago when I attended a workshop. I went out of town for a weekend, and attended a hands on training workshop. The focus of the workshop was safely posing and handling newborns. Prior to attending the workshop, I didn’t really move babies around much. I wasn’t sure what to do with them, and didn’t really want to “wake a sleeping baby”. What person in their right mind does? The workshop taught me how to safely pose babies into safe, and comfortable positions for them.
Even though I have been through training on how to handle newborns, if at any point during your session you are not comfortable with how your baby is being posed, simply let me know, and I’ll move on to the next pose.
At my newborn sessions, I try to incorporate a variety of posed photos, as well as more natural photos. I also love focusing on the tiny details, like eyelashes, toes, and lips. Babies are only tiny for such a short time. I love being able to capture them while their tiny details are all so fresh and new.
Booking Your Session
It is usually best to book your session sometime between your 2nd and 3rd trimester of pregnancy to be sure you get a spot on my calendar. Some times of year end up being busier than others, either personally or business wise, so planning ahead is always a good thing. Since due dates are kind of hit or miss, to book your session, just contact me ahead of time, and I will put your due date on my calendar. Let me know as soon as you’ve had your baby, or when you know an induction or scheduled delivery date, and I will get you on my calendar. I try to schedule most of my newborn sessions within the first 2 weeks of life. There is absolutely some flexibility in this time range. If you didn’t get around to it until 3 weeks, or just plain didn’t feel great until then, that is not a problem at all.
What to Expect at Your Newborn Session
First of all, I have everything you need for your session in my studio, aside from food for your baby and a pacifier. I am constantly updating my selection of props for my clients to choose from. I have a variety of amazing vendors that I purchase my props from, and everything is sized just right. Pants, rompers, hats, headbands, bonnets, and swaddle wraps are among the many things I keep in studio for my clients.
