Newborn baby pictures can bring a smile to anyone’s face. While newborn photos represent one of the greatest treasures to a new parent, not all parents take advantage of a newborn photoshoot. A newborn baby pic can be the furthest thing from your mind when you are in the throws of day to day activities with your little bundle of joy. Where do I start (you might ask)? Well, I would Google newborn photography near me, review the results and determine which studio is the best match for what you are seeking. One question we do get asked from time to time is how to get a passport for a newborn and believe it or not, there is actually a procedure to this that we can assist you with. Our newborn photo sessions take place in our centrally located portrait studio or sometimes in your home depending on what the best time for newborn photos is for you. We do accept on location assignments from time to time; however, recommend the following three photographers when we are not available:
Connecticut newborn photography (Ute Christin Photography)
Austin newborn photographers (Jessica Doffing Photography)
Boston newborn photographer (Beth Miga Photography)
They are experts on how to wrap a newborn for photography (as good as Red Lotus’ Newborn Photography).
Our newborn and sibling photo ideas are second to none and will impress the grandparents and parents alike. Did you know the newborn xmas photos mini-sessions that we run sell out earlier and earlier every year and that we are even considering a special newborn puppy photoshoot (due to demand) as well?
If you wish to be alerted to one of our Newborn Photography Mini Session events that are by invitation only, please provide your information below:
How much is a newborn photo shoot?
Red Lotus Baby Portrait Photography photo-shoots usually begin around $1200. This typically includes the photographer’s time for the session itself, editing the final photographs, and the cost of the photographer’s experience, equipment, supplies, and travel expenses.
When should newborn photos be taken?
In order to capture your newborn in adorable curly poses, you should take newborn photos four to eleven days after giving birth. If you want your baby’s sleepy and curly newborn demeanor to be photographed, try not to wait any longer than two weeks for the Red Lotus Newborn Session.
Is 2 weeks too old for newborn photos?
It is possible (although more difficult) to create beautiful posed newborn photographs after two weeks of age. Red Lotus’ Photographers will photograph babies who are older. When a photographer accepts a booking for a posed newborn shoot with a baby older than two weeks, they will alert you to some poses that may no longer be possible due to the baby’s age.
How do we do a newborn photo shoot at home?
1. Scout Your home – spend a few days before your shoot walking around your house at different times of day and noticing how the light changes.
2. Collect Any Outfit, Props, and Accessories that you might want to use during the session.
3. Make sure you and the little ones get a good nights sleep and are all properly fed prior to the session start time.
4. Set the mood with some relaxing music or scents in the background.
5. Have all subjects (including any pet children) bathed and styled to your preference.
