Newborn Session - Maria's two approaches

Newborn (5-12 days) - Baby As Art style


My newborn baby as art style is best for newborns aged 5-12 days after birth.    The newborn babies presented in my portfolio are either nude, in baskets, or wrapped, and are on average8-9 days old.  Twins range from 6 days to 1 month old.  During this stage, the babies tend to be sleepier, squishier and more flexible, making it easier to achieve the best results.


This approach focuses on capturing the natural beauty of your newborn babies in a more artistic manner. This session is never rushed and takes around 2-4 hours, allowing plenty of time for baby feeding and comforting. I will take care of all the posing, comforting, and swaddling of your babies. This session also includes photos with siblings, parents, and pets!


I will bring an extra helper, a beanbag, sets of clean sterilized wraps, blankets, and a baby basket for the session. Technically speaking, you do not have to prepare anything unless there are any sentimental items that you would like to be included in the photos.


All baby art sessions run from 10 am to 2 pm, as I have found that most newborns tend to be crankier if the session starts in the afternoon.


All baby art sessions run at your home only.



  

Newborn - Lifestyle approach


I get it! You've just left the hospital, have a splitting headache because your breast milk isn't coming in, you're only getting two hours of sleep per day, your baby seems to be crying all the time, and you're not allowed to wash your hair for a month... and now your baby is suddenly two months old. Where did the time go?!


But most importantly, all you need are some family photos to celebrate the joy of welcoming a new life. You don't need those artistic, curly, squishy, posed sleeping baby portraits!


If you want images of your babies still looking small, I recommend capturing them before 3 months. However, I believe that any age is worth capturing.


This session takes less than 1 hour (but can be extended to 2 hours if you need 2 locations). I will capture your babies in their own outfits, in the comfort of your home, or even outside in your nearby park or beach. This session captures the connection and love among your family in a more authentic and candid manner.


Please note that once you have selected this style, you can't request me to do a Baby As Art session on the spot. This is because : (1) the baby maybe too old for certain Baby As Art type image; (2) I don't bring all the necessary equipment with me, such as the beanbag, the basket, the wraps and blankets which is needed for my Baby As Art session. (3) I may have other sessions scheduled after yours, which means I cannot extend my shooting time with you if baby need 2 hours to fall asleep.


In any case let's chat before the session if you have any particular questions.
