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.
Older newborn sessions include access to white onesies, diaper covers, swaddles, and a small assortment of knitted teddy bear sleepers 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.
OLDER NEWBORN VS. POSED NEWBORN SESSION:
Older newborns are physically and developmentally very different than one week old babies. They are alert, uncurled, and are much bigger and stronger in both muscles and opinions! :) It is nearly impossible to keep an older newborn sleeping through posing movements, so older newborn sessions do not include sleeping poses, tummy posing props like buckets or beds, or composite options like the posed newborn session for 7-14 day old babies.
Whether awake or asleep, natural newborn sessions are simple, sweet, and stunning!
older newborn sessions
All older newborn sessions include baby and its parents - but no siblings or pets. Baby will be 3-6 weeks old.
Simple images of baby will be taken - baby will most likely be awake. No sleeping or posing props for this age of baby.
Packages include client's choice of digital images in both colour and black and white, delivered via online download.
After the session, additional baby images are available for purchase, if desired, for $35- $50 each.
