The first steps…
The first step in requesting your baby photographer is to choose which type of session(s) you want!

Your little blessing will only by tiny for a short time. Their faces won’t stay like that for long! Start the baby book off right by taking the time to create heirloom quality photos. Get out of the house and let me photograph your newborn using safe poses, beautiful props, and wrapping. Once you book, I will send a newborn questionnaire. This information will help me tailor your session for your family. Traditionally, newborn photos are taken when the baby is 5 to 21 days old. Book your due date now to reserve your spot.
Fresh 48 photography is performed at a hospital, birth center, or home just after your newborn’s delivery. Sessions are booked on your due date with the understanding that the baby will come on their own time. Once labor starts and the baby is born, you or a loved one will notify me and arrange the best and most convenient time to take pictures! Book now to reserve your due date.
Birth photography is full coverage of the intimate experience of delivering your newborn baby. It doesn’t matter what kind of birth you have. A c-section, home birth, or hospital birth are all equally important. From my experience, birthing my child was a whirlwind. I remember the moment my son looked me in the eyes when we were skin-to-skin. The rest of the day is not as clear. Luckily my mother in law had my camera and captured some great candid photos. I am so grateful to have these pictures! It definitely helps me remember the process. Book now to reserve your due date. Births are unpredictable, therefore, I limit my availability to one client per month.
Sitter sessions are for babies that can sit unassisted. A sitter session is the next photography milestone after a newborn photography session. The common age for a sitter session is six months old. These sessions are really cute because the baby is curious and likes to smile. My favorite pose is one where we place the baby on their back and encourage them to discover their feet. It’s adorable!
Birthday Sessions are another example of a milestone session. This session celebrates your baby turning one! It’s a great opportunity to get a portrait to share with the family and to hang on your walls. Children love seeing their images framed on the wall. It makes them feel important and loved! Make sure you print a large photo so they can see!
I hope to be your baby photographer in Virginia Beach and surrounding areas. I am looking forward to meeting you and your new family!
