The Artful Baby Newborn Photography
Newborns are precious miracles. They change our world in a way we never expect. It is a treasure to capture this newborn moment because it is so short lived. Before you know it, two months have passed your little wonder has already changed. It is also probably the most difficult age to capture successfully by a novice. Newborn photography by a professional and experienced newborn photographer is a skill worth investing in. Much care, patience and talent is needed to capture a newborn baby at his or her best.
Janette not only has the skill and experience as an experienced and award-winning photographer but also the patience and the imagination to capture beautiful fine art newborn portraits as well as the amazing bond you share with your newborn baby.
Newborn portraits are best taken as early as possible. Preferably before 2 weeks of age. Before 2 weeks a newborn is much more malleable and sleepy and baby acne has not yet crept in. However newborn photography can be captured as late as 5 weeks. After 6 weeks many babies start to look less like a newborn and it may be better to wait to photograph them when they are bubbly babies, sitting up.
Janette prefers you to book well ahead of your due date. Never feel it is too early to book a newborn photography session. Though babies are unpredictable and inevitably the photo shoot will be altered, you can guarantee your newborn shoot this way. Janette will schedule your newborn photography shoot then, when your baby is delivered, a phone call will firm up the time and date for the newborn photography shoot.
Most newborn photography shoots are done in the comfort of your own home. Preferring to shoot in natural light, Janette prides herself on finding the “light” in any home. They also bring their portable studio with backdrops and props with them. No one is ever able to tell which newborn photos were taken in the studio and which were taken at a home.
