A few days after I got to meet sweet Owen at GLWACH he came to visit me at my studio in downtown Waynesville off of historic route 66. He was still the tiniest little thing! I always forget how tiny newborns are until I have one in studio. It also doesn't help that my babies have always been BIG! Nora was two weeks early at seven pounds and seven ounces, and Nathan was my largest at nine pounds seven ounces. I basically give birth to toddlers :P
One of the best reasons to book a newborn photography session is to capture those TINY little details. Newborns turn into babies within the first few weeks, plumping up and becoming more alert and personable. By month two, you might start seeing little expressions and before you know it they're holding their neck up, smiling and cooing, and working on rolling over. A newborn photo session is a great way to preserve how your baby is EXACTLY as they are right after birth, without having someone come to the hospital. Unlike fresh 48 sessions, a studio newborn session lasts 2-3 hours (industry standard) and will have your baby posed in all those sweet little positions, with wraps and outfits and props. Fresh 48 sessions focus more on hospital (or birth-place) details and are very photo-journalistic.
Studio newborn sessions are actually the only posed, non-documentary sessions I offer. While lifestyle newborn sessions and fresh 48's tug at my heart strings, I am a complete MUSH when it comes to newborns, and I can't help but love spending a few hours snuggling your new baby and creating timeless pieces of artwork for you.
