As a Denver newborn photographer, newborn photography is my baby fix. Those first weeks of new life, new love, new family are absolutely magical. The new addition to a family is the single most beautiful and exhilarating experience that I have ever had. To get to be a tiny part of this experience with my new mothers, new fathers and once again parents is humbling, honoring and a constant reminder of those early days with my own children. Newborn photos capture those early days and moments. When you look at your newborn photos on a good or even a bad day (and trust me there will be some bad days) all the magic, love, and exhilaration of bringing your baby into this world are felt again, and again.
All newborn sessions will occur in the first three weeks after delivery and occur at my Denver photography studio located at 1550 S. Acoma St., Denver, CO 80223 near the Platte Park Neighborhood. Most sessions begin around 9:00-9:30am M-F. I have a very comfortable studio space with changing table, diapers, wipes, nursing area, boppy, etc…. in other words if you forget something I most likely have it here for you! Sessions can be anywhere from 3-4 hours this depends on your baby’s disposition. They are all so different and already have built in personalities! If we are going to be photographing families and siblings I do like to do these photos at the end of the newborn session. After your session I will edit 30-40 images and present them to you in your own personal online gallery. This gallery is private but can be shared with friends and family. Your gallery will be available for making orders within two weeks of your session date and online for ordering for fourteen days from the release date.
The newborn session fee is $175 for Full and Mini sessions which is for my time to photograph your little one and book your due date on my calendar. Images will be presented to you in your own personal online gallery. You will be able to purchase/make selections from your online gallery for fourteen days after the release date. Mini Sessions ($450 total) include 10 digital images + BW version of 10 chosen images. For Full sessions all prints, products, digitals, and Collections are in addition to the session fee. Print Collections start at $550 and Digital Collections (most popular) start at $550 and go up to $850 delivered thru download. I also offer a Digital Collection that includes prints of your color images and a flash drive for $950. I do offer Print Collections for those wanting more products. Collections offer substantial savings over al a carte pricing.
This depends on the look that you would like if you are looking for a very classic traditional look then I suggest wearing solid black/gray short sleeve tops and jeans and women in solid black maxi, halter, or spaghetti strap dresses. Now if you want something a little different from the traditional look I personally love soft colors for family photos as well and even a little pattern thrown in there. Either way I love men in jeans and women in dresses (that show a little shoulder and arms) for family photos with newborns.
I supply all the newborn props. I have an enormous amount of hats, headbands, blankets, backgrounds, furs, baskets, crates, etc…. Some might actually say I have a bit of a newborn shopping problem!! All of my props are specifically made to fit newborns in the first three weeks of life. If you have something that you would like to incorporate in your images just let me know.
