modern, fine art newborn portraits in the san francisco bay area
Creative Newborn Photographer in Northern California Featuring Vintage Props or No props at All
Ok, I will admit that I am head-over-heels in love with newborns. It humbles me every time that I meet and work with a being that is just a week or so old. As an experienced newborn photographer of over 15 years in the San Francisco Bay Area, I pride myself on being able to capture the sleeping newborn baby in adorable poses, as well as the awake newborn. Some of my clients love colorful props and modern, vintage styling which I am happy to provide. Other clients prefer things very simple and organic in nature. No problem, I can do that too. My newborn sessions also include newborn family portraits and photographs of the newborn baby with mom, dad and siblings. I am also a big fan of newborn photography with the family dog, and dogs are always welcome for part of our session.
In terms of timing for the newborn session, I recommend under two weeks ( 5 to 12 days old) as the best time frame for newborn portraits – before the baby acne and the newborn baby fussiness set in. If you are in love with the sleeping newborn babies in baskets and in darling poses, 9 days or younger is best. This time frame can vary however for babies that are preemies, or babies that are born a week or more after their due date. For the best newborn sessions, we meet together either over the phone or in person to plan out the session in a 30 minute pre-consultation.
