INVESTMENT | NEWBORNS

Newborn photography makes my heart full. It's such an honor as a photographer to be trusted to capture those button noses, back wrinkles and little toes. All those tiny details need to be photographed before that precious little bundle changes in just a matter of weeks.

Can we all collectively agree that newborns are a miracle worthy of their own photo session? As a mother myself, I know how in a blink of an eye your baby grows and changes. Photographs of your children are so important because they will last a lifetime.

On your session day, we will not only capture photographs of your newborn but can include the proud parents and siblings upon request.  No matter how important it is to create gorgeous images of your newborn the safety of your baby is always top priority at Misi Inskeep Photography. 

Also, don't forget to capture that pregnancy glow with a maternity session. Misi Inskeep Photography can capture it all, maternity, newborn, milestone session, family photography and beyond.

All You Need To Know Before Your Newborn Session

SCHEDULE EARLY

It’s never too early to get on my calendar, it’s perfectly okay to contact me 3 months in advance. I would suggest scheduling during your second trimester. Scheduling early allows us plenty of time to plan backgrounds, outfits and color coordinate your favorite colors. I have a nice selection of props however, if I need to order something specific many of the vendors I use seldom have ready to ship items and production and shipping may take several weeks. 

I’VE GOT CLOTHING COVERED!

Don’t worry about bringing outfits, I’ve got you covered! I shop from newborn prop vendors who specialize in clothing to snuggly fit a 7-9 pound baby. I have a variety of wraps, beautiful headbands, basket stuffers and darling outfits. 

SESSION LENGTH

Newborn sessions may last as long as 3 hours. It really depends on how well your baby sleeps and how many breaks we need to take.

BABY’S AGE

Sometime before 21 days is the ideal age for newborn pictures. This is the sleepiest time for babies. At this age they are still very flexible and usually able molded into the desirable squishy poses. If the baby is breastfed I would suggest waiting until after 7 days old to avoid cluster feeding that sometimes breastfed babies do. 

TIME OF DAY

I like to photograph newborns in the morning when they tend to be less fussy.

SLEEPING BABIES PHOTOGRAPH BEST

It’s a good idea to try to keep your baby awake before your session. I know, that’s easier said than done and everyone is now on “baby time.” I also suggest a warm bath and a feeding right before leaving for my studio. It’s very important the baby is full and sleepy when the session begins. Be prepared to nurse or feed baby during session.

SNAPS, ZIPS & LOOSE DIAPERS

Please dress baby in an outfit that either snaps or zips off, no onesies on anything that needs to come off over their head. Also, be sure that the baby’s diaper is loose so it does not leave wrinkles on his or her little thighs and bum.

MOM & DAD SHOULD DRESS LIGHTLY

I will be using space heaters to keep my studio about 80 degrees to encourage sleep and to keep your baby warm while nude. My studio space is very small and it does get steamy in there please dress lightly or in layers.

SIT BACK & RELAX

Once you arrive it’s my job to take over baby duty. You just need to sit back and relax while I snuggle on your little miracle. Please let me take the baby out of the car seat, change, diaper and feed unless of course you’re breastfeeding. It’s quite a privilege to care for a newborn.

PATIENCE IS KEY

Don’t worry if your baby takes awhile to settle or fall asleep-that’s okay! I’m extremely patient and will try some of my soothing techniques.

STUFF HAPPENS!

Your baby will more than likely pee or poop during your session. The blankets and props may become soiled, do not worry. There will be also times your baby will fuss, please allow me to attempt to soothe them first. At any point you need to snuggle, kiss or love on your baby, just let me know and we will take a break.

HAVE A PACIFIER READY

Please bring a pacifier even if you don’t plan on using it or if your baby doesn’t like. Sucking is a natural soothing technique for newborns and a pacifier can be a lifesaver in calming the baby.

PARENTS & SIBLINGS: DRESS IN SIMPLE COLORS

If parents or siblings want to be included in a few photos please wear simple colors such as cream, black, tan or grey. I will either use a light grey, medium grey or tan backdrop. If bringing siblings please discuss with me beforehand and make arrangements for them to only be here during the time they’re being photographed.

MY GOALS

My first goal is to keep your baby safe, warm, asleep and comfortable. My second goal is to capture some amazing photos!
