As a mother and a newborn photographer based in Phoenix, Arizona, I understand the profound significance of these early moments in your family’s journey. That’s why it’s my privilege to capture the pure essence of your newborn! Stepping into your first newborn photoshoot can be both exciting and nerve-wracking. There’s a total mix of emotions that come with welcoming a new member into your family and wanting to capture those cherished moments. If you have an upcoming photo session, these tips on what to expect during your first newborn session are here to ease your worries and provide you with a comforting glimpse into your experience.
What to Expect Before Your First Newborn Session
1. Hair and Makeup
I know that being a new mom might be leaving you feeling a bit sleep-deprived. That’s why I offer professional hair and makeup services, so you can shine in front of the camera. After getting glammed up, you’ll put on your freshly steamed dress and be ready to snuggle up on your family!
2. Wardrobe Worries? Not Here
Don’t worry about what to wear for the session! I want to take all the stress away for you. In my client wardrobe, I have hand selected over 50 dresses to ensure you find the perfect one! My goal is to ensure you look your absolute best and feel comfortable throughout the session.
3. A Calm and Comfortable Atmosphere
My studio is more than just a photography space; it’s a sanctuary designed to cater to your needs and your baby’s comfort. You can expect a tranquil environment with soothing music and soft lighting, to help both you and your baby feel at ease.
4. Timing is Everything
To capture those adorable, sleepy moments when your baby is easily posed, we schedule your session within the first 10 days of your baby’s life. It’s during this time that your little one is most at ease, allowing us to create those timeless portraits you’ll cherish forever.

5. Soft Natural Lighting
I believe that the pure and organic qualities of natural lighting create the most stunning photographs. That’s why I use soft, natural light to capture the essence of your newborn, ensuring that each portrait is as beautiful as your baby.
6. Patience is Key
I understand that newborns have their own schedule, which often includes breaks for feeding, soothing, and diaper changes. I’ll make sure that the session progresses at a comfortable pace for you and your baby.
7. Capturing Precious Moments
Our primary goal is to capture those real and raw moments that you can’t imagine not reliving. I’ll take a variety of photos, including family shots, mom and baby, dad and baby, siblings and baby, and individual portraits of your baby, along with close-up detail photos that highlight those tiny fingers, toes, and adorable expressions.
