RESERVING YOUR SESSION ~
I typically book sessions 6-8 weeks ahead of baby’s arrival. If you recently had your little one, I do take last minute sessions if I am available.
I also understand that sometimes unexpected circumstances may arise and you or baby might have had a longer recovery, family traditions keep you home a month, or you just decided you would still like to capture your baby in the weeks after birth, no problem! I book last minute sessions if I am available. Although I still strongly recommend you contact me before your due date so that way you still have the option of getting baby captured at the newest and sleepiest stage, because newborns change so quickly in the first 21 days. My style of photography is VERY natural, unposed and lead by the baby. So considering that you may be contacting me when your newborn is older, and are flexible about expectations during the session may be different, please don’t hesitate to inquire about capturing your new little one. Babies are NEVER too old to be photographed!
Simply Natural Imagery♥ Yes, that is my style and newborns are my favorite subject to photograph! I like to capture newborns and babies as they are, there is beauty in simplicity! I try “not” to pose baby but rather capture them naturally as they would be sleeping comfortable in a blanket. I tend to stay away from “trendy” stuff such as over sized bright colored headbands, tutus, sports balls and themed holiday outfits or costume type clothing and hats. They are distracting in the photos and take away from the pureness of the newborn baby and my preferred photography style. As an artist I stick with a natural organic style with my sessions using soft earthy tones, grays, creams, tans, and pale pastel colors. I keep all my sessions simple and use simple organic props and blankets. Styles and trends are always changing. I want to give you portraits to display that are timeless, so please advise that I do stick to my natural style of shooting! I want to capture your newborn and your session in a natural beautiful way, with simplicity and grace! If my style is something you embrace and would like me to capture your blessing, please contact me soon at Kristyleerodgers@gmail.com
*Sessions include images of newborn, parents and siblings only please.
PREPARATION FOR NEWBORNS
The best time to schedule a newborn session is before you have your baby. Ideally sessions are usually scheduled 7-21 days after baby is born. After 21 days old they are more likely to have longer periods of awake time and/or may not sleep at all. Newborn sessions require lots of patience and time. I encourage plenty of nursing, feeding, and cuddling time in my home studio.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions. I want your session to be very relaxed and a great experience!
