Samantha absolutely loves capturing newborns! They are among her favourite subjects to photograph. She especially enjoys capturing interactions between the new baby and Mom & Dad, as well as new siblings first getting to know one another. Samantha’s goal is to create artistic, unique mementos of one of the most special times in your family’s life. Many of her newborn clients come back for photos at “milestone” ages such as six months and one year old…she loves being able to watch “her” newborns grow from tiny sleepy bundles into bright eyed interactive babies, toddlers, and beyond.
The best time to do a newborn photography session is when your baby is less than two weeks old, as this is when they are at their sleepiest and can be posed as shown in Samantha’s newborn gallery. Due to the highly customized nature of her photography sessions, she takes on a very limited number per month and is usually booking portrait sessions up to 6 months in advance. Therefore, she recommends scheduling your newborn photography session as soon as possible, ideally during your first trimester. In fact, Samantha is often one of the first people to learn very early of baby’s upcoming arrival (especially for my repeat clients who know I book up early!)….don’t worry – mum’s the word!
Newborn sessions usually last approximately 2.5-3 hours and take place in Samantha’s home studio space in Bedford, N.S.
Samantha would love to talk with you about planning your own customized newborn session.
