Ocala's Newborn Photographer
Newborn photography is one of the most special parts of my job. They are soooo little and changing daily - and they will never be that tiny again. As a newborn photographer, I love capturing the little things that new parents love to ponder - all the little baby details like tiny feet. Some of the most emotion filled photography is with new protective siblings, or capturing a mother's love.
I try to make your newborn photography session as easy as possible, and babies are easiest to photograph and get into those amazing newborn poses without fussing when we schedule the shoot during their first week of life. I realize that you can't always schedule in advance for newborn shoots (since babies don't always come when they are scheduled) so I will work you in - just call as soon as possible. Most of my moms call right from the hospital to schedule the newborn photography session. Getting good photos sometimes takes time and patience, and as your newborn photographer I will do everything I can to help you preserve those precious first days in photos that you will love. I will work with the new parents to come up with creative ideas and props for the newborn photo shoot that are special to the family, relate to the time of the year the child is born, etc.
You should start thinking about newborn photography shoot while pregnant. If you want the snuggly sleepy infant shots - plan on doing your shoot when they are only 2-8 days old. Call me from the hospital to schedule the shoot! It is CRITICAL that you keep them awake and do not feed them for a while before I arrive. You will have time to feed them while I am
setting up - this way they will be the most content for the longest period of time. When they are sleepy and their belly is full we can usually move and pose them without waking them. Prepare for your newborn photography session to last anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. Finally, before I get there clear an area in your home with lots of natural window light. Make sure furniture and other items are out of the way so we don't waste precious peaceful baby time arranging a space.
I would love to discuss a newborn photography session for you and your baby. Whether you select me or some other newborn photographer in Ocala, I wish you and your baby a healthy delivery and many happy days together.
