Mommy and me newborn photo session | Savannah GA

When a father reaches out to surprise his wife with a newborn session

Ashley’s husband was so sweet when he first approached me about a mommy and me photo newborn session. Most men feel a little bit awkward to plan something so special for their wife, but this is by far the sweetest thing to do with a value of unmeasurable price when you look further down the road.

Fact is about a mommy and me newborn photo sessions!

A Mommy and Me newborn photo session is important for mom to have! She’s usually behind the camera (cell phone) photographing Dad & Baby all day, every day. No shame, Dad! I’m here and love helping you to plan everything out. All you have to do is contact me, and I do the rest. I promise.

How does this work?

That’s a great question. We can make this a secret session, where Dad drops mom & baby off and my team and I take care of the rest. Do I recommend this? It really depends on the mom. I think a little preparation on what’s coming next can go a long way. And this is exactly what happened for this session. The mom contacted me to learn more about her newborn session. I simply continue with my regular session process. I sent over my wardrobe gallery for her to pre-select about five favorite dresses. This helps me to see what type of wardrobe she likes.

Once we get closer to our session I send out a session guide/ email to prepare her. This guide contains all info about what to avoid to eat before the session, undergarment choices and of course the studio address in Richmond Hill, Georgia, session date and time.

Baby-led newborn pictures

After all the snuggles with mom, we moved on to baby-only pictures. For this session, we chose a simple white onesie and white wraps to keep the baby warm. I concentrate on all the tiny details, like baby feet and toes, eyelashes, dimples, and more during this part of the session.
