The Best Newborn Portraits | Northern VA Newborn Photographer
The beauty and value of newborn photography are indisputable. Newborn pictures are precious opportunities to capture your baby’s image in its earliest days of life. As Northern Virginia photographers in the Brambleton, VA area, we are often asked how we get such beautiful newborn portraits.
We thought we’d write down five things which lie behind the success of our newborn portraiture. We hope you enjoy them.
Personalizing & Styling Your Newborn Portraits
We can personalize your baby’s session to reflect what you want – within reason and safety, of course! Just as with all our portrait sessions, there’s a lot of thought and planning put into each session. We can do “posed” pictures of your baby, where they are sleeping and looking perfectly angelic and adorable. We can do a more casual and candid portrait of the parents holding their baby in a loving and natural way. And, of course, we can do both types of pictures either in our studio, your home, or in our stunning Outdoor Portrait Park (although we prefer to reserve our outdoor portrait park for when baby is a bit older!) The options are endless, and we can discuss them during our intake discussion!
Talk to us! If you have specific requests, share them with us!
As newborn photographers we can’t create portraits you want if we don’t know what that is. We love hearing our clients’ ideas! When you call us to schedule a session with us, we want to get to know you and understand your vision for your portrait whether it’s a newborn session, senior portrait, or family session. We do most of our newborn sessions indoors, but we can certainly do them outdoors as well. We’re happy to discuss your many options with you for the most beautiful and loving newborn portrait!
Timing is everything!
We recommend doing newborn pictures within the first seven days post birth, especially if you want the iconic sleeping baby picture. Babies are still quite sleepy and “pliable” (they’re relatively easy to pose while sleeping at that age) during that first week and it’s the easiest and the best time to capture them so naturally.
We will prep you!
We’ve been doing photography for a long time. We don’t want you to worry about your session, what you need to do or bring with you. We will fully prep you before your newborn session – or any of our sessions – and you will know just what to expect. There are no surprises especially when we’re working with babies and children. We’ll talk you through it and offer you plenty of information ahead of time. Check out our previous blog post, Newborn and Baby Photography Q&A, for some tips!
Bring the kitchen sink!
Ok, not really, but if you are coming to us, remember to bring your well-stocked baby or diaper bag along with extra changes of clothes (maybe an extra top for Mom and Dad as well just in case of accidents). Again, we’ll send you some suggestions ahead of your appointment.
You have options when it comes to Northern Virginia photographers in the Brambleton, VA area, but none will be as committed and as devoted as we are to our craft and, most importantly, to our clients. As small business owners, we have long-established core values we remain committed to to serve you best. Our blog is part of our commitment to our clients to stay in touch and offer advice.
