Babies and Newborns

Newborn Sessions

The first weeks of life are filled with such change that they are often a blur. Documenting your infant, from tiny hands and feet, to bonding moments with mom and dad, these images will create lasting memories of this special time.

Newborn photos are best taken shortly after birth, generally before two weeks of age. There is no need to dress your newborn, the skin they are born in is all you need. I often use mom and dad as a background to hold the baby. It is best if both parents wear long sleeve black shirts for these shots.

Skin on skin with mom and dad make beautiful images as well. Please be prepared with spare clothing for both the parents and baby, as wet or soiled clothing are very common during a newborn session. Don’t worry if your little one isn’t awake when you arrive. Sleeping is often the best way to photograph your newborn. The session is done around the baby’s needs. Breaks for feeding, changes and soothing a fussy baby are welcome and expected. Stefanie Lynn Photography is happy to create custom birth announcements to introduce your little one to the world.
