{newborns}





A {newborn} baby is just so special . . . I decided that they need their own page!  So here it is! 






Let me first define what I mean when I say {newborn} . . . I’m talking about the first days of your sweet baby’s life . . .those first two weeks (fourteen days) are the most optimal time to capture just how fresh and new and PRECIOUS your little one is!  You have waited nine months (and maybe more . . . if your kiddos are stubborn, like mine!) to see that precious little face, kiss those little lips, gaze in to those beautiful eyes, smell that sweet baby smell, and wrap your arms around that precious little one . . .  I need to stop or I’m going to start crying . . . my baby is growing too quickly!  *sniff sniff*

If you are expecting . . . contact me now . . . don’t wait until baby has arrived!  Let’s look at the calendar and schedule a tentative date . . . since baby’s have their own timeline and don’t always come when they are “supposed” to there is always flexibility with a newborn session!  Once baby has arrived contact the family and friends . . . let them know the good news . . . and then give a quick email/text/call to me so we can nail down our day and time.

Ok, ok . . . so, what’s the deal with {newborns}?
My desire is to capture your wee one while sleeping . . . eyes closed and in full REM is the perfect way to capture these precious ones, but HOW???  Here’s what I recommend about 30 minutes before I am scheduled to arrive take everything off of your baby but the diaper, then wrap your sweet peanut in a blanket and feed or nurse.  Make sure your little one is nice and warm . . . yes, even in the summer.  Warm, full-bellied babies will sleep very nicely . . . and that is what we want!  Make sure baby is sound asleep before putting him/her in their bed.  That way, hopefully, your sweet pea will be well in to their sleep by the time I start shooting.
