Newborn Photography | Professional Studio Serving Fayetteville to Wilmington

Newborn Photography is the art of posing and lighting a new baby to capture their first official professional portraits. To create the types of images you see below, baby needs to be photographed in their first two weeks of life with days 7-10 being ideal. This is a time when they are still fresh from the womb and retain their ‘newborn curl’. These tiny people still have a lot of cartilage in their joints and are super flexible. They also tolerate the touching and handling it takes to move them into pleasing positions. We keep the room a toasty temperature and use a few other tricks to keep them happy and calm. Because the timing of these session is crucial, we advise all expectant mothers to book their baby’s Newborn Photography Session during their pregnancy in the 2nd trimester.

While some take 3-4 hours to photograph a newborn, we are experts with experience working with well over 400 newborn babies. We also have the ONLY Certified Professional Photographer in Southeastern, NC that specializes in Newborn Photography. Our sessions last usually around 1.5 hrs and include 5-6 sets (backgrounds). This includes time for family and siblings to join in the session. We use a mix of all three main lighting techniques, natural light, constant artificial light, and photography strobes, to speed the session along and provide the most variety with zero limitations. All of the cute accessories, like those seen below, are hand made and provided complementary for each session.

Most families are eager to see the results of their Newborn Photography Session right away. We don’t make them wait! While many will send families home to wait weeks or months to see their images, and months longer to receive their orders, we do everything in the same appointment visit. We sit down to review all of the session images immediately following the portrait session. Our software allows us to provide a very unique service where wall portraits can be viewed to scale and wall groupings can be shown in a room setting, rearranged, and sized up or down. There’s no need to visualize on your own at home because we’ll show you exactly what to expect in the studio. The entire process from hello to goodbye lasts under 3 hours and orders are received within 3 weeks of the session day. This makes for very happy and satisfied clients.

Newborn Photography is our favorite. Every baby is unique in appearance and also personality. Each is a gift and a blessing. If you know someone who’s expecting, then please share this post with them.
