Not everyone is able to book in advance, and sometimes cultural or health reasons keep a family at home for the first month. For these families, we offer older newborn sessions. These are portrait sessions for older newborns aged 3-6 weeks old. If you book a posed newborn session and your baby is not able to come to the studio during the 7-14 day old timeframe (ex. NICU stay), your session will be converted to this kind of session.
Sibling mini sessions are also held during this time frame, examples are included in this gallery.
Older newborn sessions include access to white onesies, diaper covers, swaddles, and a small assortment of knitted outfits for baby. Although individual images of baby will be taken, this type of session requires parent involvement, as there will be a good assortment of family photos taken as well. Parents are encouraged to wear white or soft pastel/neutral tones to compliment the white backgrounds. Baby will most likely be awake. If baby cooperates, swaddled pictures may be taken in a simple basket or on soft furs.
