Newborns are Daniele’s favorite subject to photograph as she finds the opportunity to document brand new life oh-so-inspiring. The newborn stage is precious and it is fleeting. In the whirlwind of sleepless nights and groggy days, your newborn images will become a treasured remembrance of this sweet and short-lived time.
When To Schedule Your Session
The best time to schedule your newborn session is while you’re still pregnant. Because your little one’s arrival is unpredictable, Daniele will pencil your due date into her calendar, and will leave room for your session in her schedule around that time. Once you are home from the hospital, a set date and time will be established.
If your baby is already here, please call or email to inquire about session availability, as Daniele does try to fit newborns into her schedule whenever possible.
The Perfect Age
Daniele prefers to photograph newborns during their first two weeks of life, with the most optimal time being between 5-7 days. During this time babies are still blissfully sleepy and can easily curl into poses. After two weeks baby acne, molting, and colic can start to become an issue.
The preferred location for newborn sessions is Daniele’s natural light studio. It is a warm and inviting space and all the necessities are close at hand.
During your session we will follow baby’s lead with plenty of time for feedings, diaper changes and soothing. Because of this, it is not uncommon for newborn sessions to last two to three hours, sometimes more. Please plan accordingly.
