Newborns are Alicia’s favorite subjects to photograph because the opportunity to document a new little person is truly inspiring. The little fingers and toes, the wispy hair, the new skin, and the little belly button. Her style highlights the beautiful features that define your baby. Alicia combines her photographic talent and ability to gently handle newborn subjects to create distinct portraits that will be cherished for a lifetime.
WHEN TO SCHEDULE YOUR SESSION
It is never too early to book a newborn session. Please call to schedule before you have your baby. Because your baby’s birth date is unpredictable, a time frame will be reserved for you. If you are given an induction or c-section date, the actual session date can be booked in advance. If you are letting baby decide, your due date will be noted and arrangements will be made as soon as baby arrives.
THE PERFECT AGE
Alicia prefers to photograph babies around 6 days old. Older newborns tend to sleep less and do not curl up as easily. Newborn acne and cholic may flare up at around 1.5-2 weeks of age, as well.
Alicia operates her sessions according to each individual newborn. It’s not uncommon for the session to last three hours, allowing for plenty of time for feedings and comforting.
