Ft. Stewart Newborn Photographer | Winn Army Hospital

This little bean was so beautiful bean had the blondest hair. So sweet.

We all know, we don’t feel the best right after having a baby. But I got you, Mom! I even have a few dresses\ robes to use at the hospital for your Fresh 48 session. As an Air Force wife and baby photographer I am so lucky to have the Winn Army hospital in Ft. Stewart so close to swing by for a sweet and short Fresh48 sessions. Almost all rooms have gorgeous light, too. The staff is fantastic. They completely worked with us and worked on our schedule. I have been to a few hospitals, but this one is by far the friendliest one.

So, if you have a birth planned at Winn and would love to have some pictures taken of the first few hours of your sweet new family member, contact me and we will set something up. I’d love to capture this special time for you!

On another note: This little boy was so relaxed. We decided to photograph him in my newborn studio in Richmond Hill and no regrets here. He was just as chill at the studio.

Light And Airy Newborn Photography Studio | Savannah Georgia

Have you ever wondered, if I photograph in natural light or with studio lights? I do both, depending on the light situation (time of day and weather condition). I will always prefer dreamy, natural light, no question asked.

This beautiful family came into the studio specifically for a bright and airy newborn photography session. The day of the weather was not optimal for natural light and in the series below only one image was taken with natural light. Can you guess which one? (I will reveal at the end of this post)

This sweet sister was wearing a dress from the client wardrobe, just as her beautiful mom. I love the peachy tones in these images so much

Five Things To Pack In Your Hospital Bag | Savannah Candler Hospital

Savannah birth photography-hospital-bag-fresh48-1.jpg

I ask my customers all the time what the most valuable thing is to pack into their hospital bag. Around 34 weeks is a great time to have your hospital bag ready. When I was having my children it seemed like I wanted to move into the hospital room, when I was admitted. I packed way too many things. Here are five things that are absolutely vital to pack, when you leave for the hospital. The Ultimate Hospital Bag List can be downloaded below. Just simply check off what you’ve packed already.

  1. Important paper work - Bring copies of your birth plan (if you have one), a picture ID, health insurance information, and hospital registration forms. Even if you've already registered at the hospital, some hospitals need to confirm your records before they can admit you.

  2. Telephone chargers - I know, you're never without your phone. But be sure you (and your partner) have chargers handy. Besides needing a phone for obvious reasons (calling, texting, and updating your social accounts with your exciting news) you'll want to download helpful apps, like a contraction timer and white noise.

  3. VIP phone list - family and friends will anxiously wait for THE message… your Fresh48 and\ or newborn photographer, too :).

  4. Pillow - The pillows in the hospitals may be uncomfortable, and bringing one you're familiar with may help you to relax. Bring one for your birth partner, too, if he or she is planning on spending the night.

  5. Tens machine, if you’re planning to use one. I also had a massage ball with me so my husband could massage my back.

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.

newborn-studio-photography-richmond-hill-ga.jpg

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.
