First we had each other...then we had you. Now we have everything...Welcome home little one!
I LOVE photographing Newborns! Newborns were my first passion when I started photography. Newborn photography is incredibly challenging and very rewarding. It’s amazing to be a part of baby’s life when they are just days old. There’s a little bit of prep and planning that needs to go into these sessions to make them more successful...
SO LETS GET STARTED!
We recommend that you schedule your newborn session PRIOR to your baby’s birth to ensure a spot on our calendar. Contact us during your second/third trimester and we’ll pencil you in with the understanding that we will move the date or time. We are sensitive to Mom's recovery and we will work with you to schedule your baby regardless of our schedule. We always leave time for newborns and we will never rush you.
Then, send us an email once your your little bundle of joy arrives and we can confirm a time/date best suitable for you and your family. Newborn sessions are best scheduled within 4 to 14 days of life...preferably within the first 7 days. We’ll be moving them around and scrunching them into those sweet sleepy newborn images so we want to make sure they’re sleepy enough to allow us to handle them. Somewhere around day 14 they discover the joy that is stretching! Keep in mind that newborn acne (and sometimes colic) is likely to flare up after day 14. While we can easily edit problem areas, we prefer to do as little retouching as possible to baby’s skin.
The majority of our newborn sessions take place in our studio. We have lots of baskets and props in our studio. We also welcome in-home sessions! We really don’t need much space just good lighting around your home would work. Newborn sessions generally take anywhere within 2 hours. We have snacks, drinks, a private area for feeding and changing. Older kids and toddlers are welcome to join in. We keep our studio super comfy and warm for our newborns. You can trust that we will provide all measures to keep your babies in a clean environment. Please understand that our studio is a pet free environment.
Ruby has been photographing newborns for over 14 years. Having children of her own, she knows how to calm just about any Baby. When comparing prices among photographers there are some important things to keep in mind – such as how long the photographer has been working with newborns and where they provide their sessions. Clothing for parents and siblings is best when it is nice and simple, and free of patterns or stripes.
It is best to wear colours that will look great when the artwork is displayed in the home. Light or dark colours work equally well. Ruby style is classic and timeless. She welcomes your input and we would love the colours of the session to go with your personal style and home decor. We want these images to look amazing in your home and that varies from client to client. While Ruby has a style that bridges generations, she also keeps up with current trends in regards to styling and post processing.
Images can be adjusted in tone for more or less color, depending upon your preferences. You are welcome to ask for any particular post processed style and we value your input in session planning. You can also just sit back and let Ruby handle everything as well.Your private, proofing gallery will be up within 2 weeks after your session. You get to review all images with no sales pressure what so ever, and decide on images, prints, or products.
We have a verity products available to you and work with the best professional photographer labs in the country. You can order any product you can imagine! Even a guestbook for your baby shower is now available and can arrive within a week! Full payment is due at time of session.
