Family Newborn Photo Session | Newborn Photography Studio in Richmond Hill, GA

I love to photograph sweet families in my newborn photography studio in Richmond Hill, Georgia. This sweet mom came in for a limited edition maternity photography session. What does that mean you ask? During the hot summer months you are able to book a complimentary maternity session for mom only, a quick 20 minutes and it includes three digital images printable up to 8x10 inch (g9ft print size). Mrs. S. took advantage of this deal and received the image above and a few more together with their newborn images.

Big brother did so well. They really deserve a nice treat after the family and sibling part of the session. I always photograph the family at the beginning of the session and one parent takes the bigger sibling to the park or for lunch while the other parent stays at the studio with me to finish up the posed newborn images.

Parents are usually pretty nervous to bring in the older sibling(s). It takes the littles to adjust to the new baby and some can be in a pretty bad mood. I have my tricks though to engage them and we keep the family and sibling photography session part sweet and short and all kids don't mind a short snuggle with their new baby sibling.

After the family newborn photography session part I move on with some prop shops. I have a sweet collection of organic and natural looking props as bowls, nests and a tiny wooden crib to take some comfy looking images with your newborn baby. At this point some babies are still awake and probably almost done for a meal and some snuggle time with mommy.

If the baby is asleep I will move on to my beanbag with some posed images of your newborn.

I love photographing your newborn baby from all angles and details are one of my favorites to remember a lifetime how squishy and tiny they were. Detail shots make for a great design in your album as well.

How to prepare for your newborn photo session | Richmond Hill, GA

There are so many choices for great newborn photographers in the beautiful Savannah area, and I feel so honored that you have chosen me as your newborn’s photographer. Our small newborn studio is conveniently located in Richmond Hill, GA, with easy access to I95 and HWY 17. I provide you with luxe maternity gowns for you to use during our maternity photography session and soft wraps and fibers to use during our newborn session. I also have carefully selected props from all over the world in my studio, but the main focus will always be on you and\ or your baby.

I love snuggling with newborns! I know how important your little ones first portraits are. Your friends and family members will be adoring them for years to come. My goal is to provide each family with a unique experience, just as your newborn is unique. My newborn sessions take anywhere from 2-4 hours, depending on how much your baby wants to eat and snuggle. I work on your baby's schedule; it’s all about patience! My experience has offered an extreme comfort level with my clients, and I am quite diverse in my posing and comforting skills.

Here are the things that I KNOW will happen during your time in the studio and I want you to be prepared for this:

a. Your newborn baby will cry, and that's ok! I think it’s super sweet and I have a load of experience with calming babies. I have two of my own. It is important that you stay calm and relaxed as much as possible. If you are nervous, your baby is nervous.

b. Your baby will potty during the session, and it may be on anything and\ or anyone. And that's ok! I am used to clean the messes, and you should bring with an extra outfit, too.

c. Your newborn will eat, a lot. And that's ok! I work on the baby's schedule, and if we have to take a break, we will do so. At this stage, your newborn is most likely not on a “schedule” just yet. I want to make this experience beautiful and memorable for you and who doesn't love to remember the snuggles with a newborn baby. I am a 100% on board with both breast and bottle feeding and aim to offer a comfortable experience for your baby to eat in a relaxing atmosphere. I work with a few doulas that offer lactation counseling services and if their time allows we can easily make arrangements to visit during your baby's session and give you a little advice and encouragement. Please visit Latch onto Health.

d. Your newborn will sleep, sometimes a lot. And that's ok! Sleeping babies are super cute. My studio is warm during our newborn sessions, and your baby is comfortably wrapped during the first part of our session. If your baby is freshly fed and wrapped up warm, they will naturally just fall asleep.

I prepare for each session. We go over outfit choices and choose props for your newborn session during our pre-session or through an questionnaire. I want you to feel comfortable during your session, and I work hard to keep both of you parents comfortable and baby as well.

You might be wondering how to best prepare for your newborn’s first portrait session.

Here are tips for getting the most out of your newborn session:

1. My customers book their session during their second trimester. I take on just a few newborn sessions per month and to make sure to reserve your spot you might want to book your session early. Once the session is booked I will put your due date on my calendar. Now we just lean back and wait for baby to arrive. Most customers send me a quick text message to let me know that they're on their way to the hospital. That's how excited they are :). Your newborn will be displaying the most womb-like behaviors during the first 14 days of life. And as soon as you contact me that baby arrives\d (the sooner, the better!) I will move your due date to your actual appointment. 

2. Dress comfortably, especially if you don't want to be in the session. I highly encourage you to take a picture with your baby though  You can wear one of my studio dresses during this part. I promise I keep the shots chest up if you feel more comfortable that way.  I know you just delivered a baby and probably don't feel the best. You will not regret these touching images of the love that you already feel for your new bundle of joy. Your child, once grown up, will cherish this picture forever, I promise! Please bring a cream\ white tank top (Mom) and a plain cream\ grey t-shirt, v-neck or dress shirt (Dad). We have so many stretchy maternity gowns as well that look gorgeous from chest up!.

3. Right before you leave your house to come to your session, please loosen baby’s diaper (this helps eliminate diaper marks) and top him/her off with a MINI feeding, if neccessary. Once you're here you will feed your baby so it is nice and full. Some parents manage to keep their baby awake before the session which always guarantees for a sleepy baby. Giving them a bath before the session always helps, too. If a bath is no option, please make sure your baby is feshly washed, especially the hair (with a cloth), so we have fresh hair for the images. Remember: A full (and warm) baby is a happy and sleepy baby! And, burp away! Gassy babies have a harder time resting.

4. If the baby is not asleep when you get here, don't worry. I love awake shots, especially during the family part and prop section of your session. I love how you can connect with your baby it makes for the best images.

5. Do you have a meaningful prop? (a blanket your grandmother made, for example, bring it along and I try to include it in your session.

Adorable baby newborn photography | Savannah, GA

This is such a beautiful family. I was so excited when they booked me for their newborn photo session, look at all those sweet little boys.

Lisa took advantage of my itty bitty studio belly session and looked pretty as ever.

I love to pull out my mattress for lifestyle inspired newborn photography images. Most mom's thank me for it, since they're super tired and sometimes still exhausted from birth. I once had a mom fall asleep on my bed haha.

Dear Mariah,

it has been a while that I have been blogging about my Savannah Newborn Photography. Today is such a special day and I just have to post your beautiful Savannah Maternity Photography. You have just delivered your newborn boy last night. I was so excited, I could barely sleep. Congratulations to both of you on your baby boy! 

I am more than excited to take your Savannah Lifestyle Newborn Pictures at your cozy home tomorrow and your Savannah Newborn Photography in the coming up week.

I wish you the best of time to get to know each other. I am more than happy, that you chose me to be your Savannah Newborn Photographer and I am excited to capture this very special time on film for you!

Love,

Andrea

 

Mariah has contacted me a long time ago to get ideas about my Savannah Maternity Photography and Savannah Newborn Photography. I could not even see her baby bump yet. I am so glad she chose me as her Savannah Newborn Photographer! We met up in my Savannah Newborn Photography Studio to choose a selection of my maternity gowns and headpieces I offer for my clients to borrow for their Tybee Beach Maternity pictures to wear for the Tybee Maternity Photography session. She knew from the very beginning, that she was looking for a Tybee Island Photographer for her Tybee Maternity Photography pictures. I always love, when my clients come to my private Savannah Newborn Photography Studio so they get to know the place where their newborn will be photographed and myself. Building a relationship with my client is so important to me. After all, I am - as their Savannah Newborn Photographer - one of the very first people to handle their baby and you should be able to trust me.
