Is there anything better than the innocence and peace that a newborn baby makes us feel? No, and this is why newborn photography sessions with DeFalco Design are an absolute favorite!
These sessions feel so rewarding to shoot, as they take place during a time in your newborn baby’s life that will ultimately pass by in the blink of an eye, as you settle into your role as Mommy. Our newborn sessions will take place within the first 7-10 days of your baby’s life, and we do not recommend scheduling them past the 2-week-old mark.. This early stage is what we call the “sleepy baby phase” and is how we’re able to capture the angelic poses we all love so much. All of the outfits are provided for your newborn, as well as the props that are carefully selected for your session.
If you have a favorite prop that you’d like to see used during your newborn photo shoot, please let us know and we will bring that as well. Sessions can be in a studio or in the comfort of your home. If you choose to be in a few shots, recommendations on what to wear will be provided, as well as tips for applying subtle makeup to keep the shots looking natural and comfortable.
Flattering angles are a strong suit of Katharine’s and she prides herself on her editing ability, with over 15 years of design experience. You will only be shot from flattering angles if you choose to be in the newborn session. The new bundle of joy will dictate this session so we will go with the flow. Patience is the name of this game in these sessions as your baby will wake to feed or be held in between shots – and we welcome this. This is a magical time for you and the baby to have some bonding time captured. In between setups we can also photograph you breast feeding or bottle feeding and we encourage you to include siblings or other family members. This is such a fleeting time, so let’s capture your new baby and make some wonderful memories last forever!
