Our team has a lot of experience of new born photo session with posing babies. We will never place your baby into an unsafe position.

We offer only a studio session for newborn babies. Our studio is located in San Mateo in a commercial building.  Sometimes it is overwhelming thinking about leaving the house with your newborn shortly after birth.  But the wonderful thing about coming to the studio is that all is set up and ready for your arrival. We have a lot of props you could imagine and all you have to do is sit down and relax and watch us document your little angel. We take a limited amount of posed newborn sessions per month and shoot them on Mon-Fri.

BEFORE BOOK

WHAT TO CONSIDER BEFORE BOOKING YOUR NEWBORN PHOTOSHOOT

In order to capture the most natural expressions, our photo shoots typically last 1-3 hours. Sessions are very comfortable and laid back. Best results for newborn photography is within the first 104 days of life, and typically never older than two weeks. In addition to a variety of creative, artistic, and natural poses, we also take photographs utilizing wide selection of unique props and settings such as: hand knit hats, cocoons, slings, blankets, furs, bowls, baskets, variety of clothes, accessories for your baby.

BEST AGE

WHAT IS THE BEST AGE FOR NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY?

The ideal time to photograph a newborn is within the first 1-2 weeks of his/her life. During this time your baby still retains those beautiful curled positions he/she had in the bump and is more likely to sleep longer and deeper allowing me to create those amazing sleeping shots.
During the first 2 weeks, newborn babies have some very precious details which are only going to last for a short period of time. You will love to look back at those images captured and to bring those fleeting moments back in time.

How Far Book

I recommend to book your photoshoot after your 20 weeks scan. This is the best way to ensure availability for your baby photography shoot. At this stage, we will only book in your due date and this will secure your photography session in. Once the baby arrives, I will ask you to email to let the studio know the exact birth date so that we can define a final date for your photography shoot accordingly.

How Far Book

There is not a right age vs a wrong age for taking photographs of your new baby and capturing some precious memories. If you were not able to book your newborn session earlier, please don’t worry. I can still create some beautiful images for you and your family.
Babies are perfect at every single stage: it is just very important to book a photographer who knows how to adapt his/her photographer’s style to the different ages. After the first 20/30 days, babies behavior changes together with their sleeping patterns giving me opportunities to capture a bit more of the fresh developed new personality and the beautiful bond with mum and dad.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION

I know booking a newborn photography session can be overwhelming so I hope the section below will help in answering some of the questions you might have.

Partner allowed

YES! YES and YES! Mums and Dads are always part of the photoshoot unless requested otherwise. I would always encourage you to be in the photos with your loved one.
Mum and Baby, Dad and Baby and Whole Family photos are always my favorites and they will be your little one’s favorites too when he/she is older.

CILDREN ALLOWED

Of course yes! They are the most welcome! Both the Newborn Plus and Newborn Family package include photos of your baby and siblings. My studio has been designed with plenty of space for everyone! Once your booking is confirmed, I will email you with some useful information on how to prepare siblings for the shoot.

WHAT MUM WEAR

I believe that the simpler is always the better. Neutral Colors like white, cream, oatmeal and plain fabrics are perfect as they don’t distract from the main focus which is always your newborn baby and you.

Bring

Welcome to use any of your own props. Look for items with texture and color to help make your images unique. If you have any family heirlooms, toys, hats, props, etc. that you would like me to use in your session, please bring them. I may not get the chance to use all of the items, but I’ll look through them with you to determine what will work best.

PRP

Time is always the answer. Allowing time for you and your baby to have extra feeds, extra cuddles always helps. Normally, even the most awake newborn, after one hour is very likely to fall asleep. I will not book any other client so that we can stretch your shoot a bit longer if your baby needs extra time.

IS THERE ANY DISCOUNT IF I BOOK A NEWBORN AND MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION?

Bring

Yes, I will offer $50 discount if you book the both Maternity and Newborn session.

WHERE IS MY NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY SHOOT GOING TO BE HELD?

Bring

All my newborn and baby photography sessions are held in my professional studio in San Mateo CA where I have recreated a beautiful, peaceful and relaxing environment where mum and dad can relax while I take care of their bundle of joy. 

MOST CNCERN

MOST COMMON WORRIES AND CONCERNS ABOUT NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

Most of the mums who chose not to have newborn photography session they are driven by worries and concerns. Will I be able to leave the house with a newborn? What if my baby doesn’t cooperate and doesn’t settle? I look so tired. Would a photoshoot be a good idea? My clients often regret not having newborn photos taken when their baby grows up. Please do not make thesame mistake they made. 

WHERE

I have never seen this as a problem. Babies are very unpredictable and it is not unusual for me to meet a wide awake newborn 1 -2 weeks baby. Having an awake baby doesn’t prevent me to create some wonderful images for you and your family. You can browse through my website to see some amazing awake images of newborns.

How do I make sure we can capture some sleepy shots?

HOW DO I MAKE SURE WE CAN CAPTURE SOME SLEEPY SHOTS?

ARRANGE

ITime is always the answer. Allowing time for you and your baby to have extra feeds, extra cuddles always helps. Normally, even the most awake newborn, after one hour is very likely to fall asleep.
Both the classic and total package are longer sessions and normally the extra time ensures that you will have sleepy shots.
When you choose either a classic or a total package, I will not book any other client so that we can stretch your shoot a bit longer if your baby needs extra time.
