Stacey’s Maternity Session

 

It was a beautiful evening for a glowing mama-to-be’s maternity session!  I just love maternity photos because pregnancy is such a beautiful thing to capture!  Enjoy a few of my favorites from Stacey’s sunset maternity session <3

Baby B | Styled Newborn Session

It was so fun getting to snuggle this cutie for his newborn session and to see the love that this family of 5 shares.  Mom and dad might have their hands full with 3 kiddos under 4 years, but surely so are their hearts <3

The T Family

We may have dodged some rain that night, but we wound up getting lucky and still got some great photos of this beautiful family.  Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session!

Finn | Fresh 48 Session | Hastings, MN Newborn Photographer

There’s something about those hospital birthing rooms that bring such a warm fuzzy feeling when you enter them.  I could just feel the love that this family shared for this new little life and I am so happy that I was able to be a part of this special time in their lives.  Baby Finn was less than 12 hours old when I got to meet him and I must say, he was perfect in every way!  I think his big sisters thought so too because they had a little bit of a hard time sharing him during the photos.  Enjoy a few of my favorites from this wonderful Fresh 48 Newborn Session!

Miss S – 6 Month Milestone

It has been so fun watching this sweetie grow the past 6 months!  I will never forget this particular session because we got SUPER lucky with the weather!  Even though it rained right before and right after our session, we got some great photos to document one of my favorite milestone ages! Enjoy a few of my favorites from Miss S’s 6 month session!

Why Book a Newborn Session in Advance

DSC_6226-EditBooking a photographer to capture baby’s newborn stage is on the to-do list for many expecting parents, but not all the parents think it needs to be done in advance, before they even deliver the baby. I often get last minute inquiries asking my availability for their newborn baby.  Sometimes it is too late to book a newborn session after your baby arrives because I am fully booked at that point. So why book a newborn photography session before your baby arrives?

This is something a lot of new parents ask: How can I even book a session when I don’t even know when the baby is going to arrive? My baby could arrive early or late.” This is of course very true. Unless you will have a scheduled c-section, you won’t know exactly when your baby will arrive.

Here is how my system works to make sure I photograph newborn babies in time for all my booked clients:  I take a certain number of due dates per month, with 2 maximum  due dates per week. I mark my clients’ due dates on my calendar and once the baby arrives, we will schedule a firm date for the session. I want to make sure all of my clients have the opportunity to get an appointment at the best possible time, which is within the first 2 weeks after birth.

I also want to be able to be flexible for my booked clients. Some clients might need a few more days due to delivery complications. Some babies might need a few more days before their first photo session due to jaundice, for example. I always prioritize my booked clients. Occasionally I will have openings and I will try my hardest to squeeze new clients in if I can.  If newborn photography is something that you really want for your family, then I recommend scheduling ahead just in case.

I currently only have one spot left for June, one for July and am fully booked for the month of August.  I am now booking for September and October – so if this is where your due date falls and you are interested in learning more about my in-home sessions, contact me today!
