Which Type of Newborn Session is Right for You?

At my Langley studio, I offer two very different styles of newborn sessions. They are very different, and suited towards very different clients. If your family has cultural expectations or traditions regarding the postpartum period, you will want to read carefully.

Brand new babies are tightly curled, flexible, and able to sleep through almost anything until they go through a growth spurt at 14-15 days old. This very young age (7-11 days is ideal) is perfect for doing adorable sleepy poses, props, and special composites at my Langley studio. Mom will still be recovering from birth, so I do everything and she will spend 99% of the time resting during the session while I work with baby. I supply clothing, props, and accessories for everyone.

OLDER NEWBORN SESSIONS (3 – 6 weeks old)
If you will be confined to your home for the first few weeks after birth, your baby missed the 7-14 day window due to a NICU stay, or are inquiring after baby is born, an older newborn
session will be your only option. These sessions are for babies from 3 to 6 weeks old, and are held in my Langley studio. I take a simple, minimalist approach to the portraits, and shoot in an all-white, light and airy way. Almost everything is white (you can choose an accent colour for baby’s photos). Older babies are bigger, stronger, alert, opinionated, and much more interactive than freshly-born newborns, so they can’t do sleepy poses or on-the-tummy props like beds or buckets. Instead, I take gorgeous phots of them snuggling with parents and capture little details like toes, yawns, and eye contact if baby is awake. If baby is on the younger side and cooperates, I can attempt to swaddle them and/or do a couple photos in safe props like laying in low baskets or a moses basket on their back. This session is heavy on family images.
