"Sometimes the smallest things
take up the most room in your heart."
~ Winnie The Pooh
I know first hand how quickly our babies grow, and I want to capture every detail for your family.
Nothing can ever prepare you for how much you are going to fall in love with your new baby. It's a feeling like no other and the start of a new life's purpose. Your baby is growing every minute and I'd love to provide you with beautiful, timeless images of you and your new baby that will be enjoyed for generations to come. Images that will help you remember that momentous beginning of your new life together.
Professionally trained by newborn photography instructors and neonatal nurses to work with newborns, I have learned how to safely handle and pose your little one while using creative ideas for artistic imagery. To date, I have photographed over 300 beautiful newborn Kootenay babies!
After your newborn photoshoot experience, I would love to provide you with information and prices for products made with the highest quality that the industry has to offer. From albums to wall art, I have teamed up with a professional Canadian photo lab that offers incredible products specially designed for your home. The hard part is deciding if you want to showcase your photos with stunning wall art or display your images in a luxury album that you can flip through together with your family year after year.
There are three different Newborn Portrait package options for you to choose from:
CLASSIC STUDIO NEWBORN ~ $300 ($270 for returning clients) + GST
Newborns are photographed within the first two weeks of birth, with the prime time being between 4 and 10 days old. The idea of doing this so soon after birth might sound a little daunting with your sleepless nights, but it's so worth it!! Your baby will grow and change every day and we want to capture the newness of your baby while they are still super sleepy, and still comfortable in those cute curly poses that you see in the gallery. And don't worry! Here, you can relax comfortably with a book, wifi, or play one of the board/card games we have available or watch your baby being photographed comfortably from the sitting room. Some parents have even been known to nap. :)
Everything for your newborn shoot is provided, but please feel free to bring any items that you would like to incorporate into your images such as special blankets, family heirlooms, or first teddy bears.
When your baby is born, please notify the studio as soon as possible to be guaranteed availability during your baby's prime time! You will be sent a helpful sheet on how to prepare, what to pack, and what to expect of your newborn shoot.
