Are you Expecting? Congratulations!! What an exciting time for you and your family. Kristin Ann Photography has a passion for Newborn Photography and will capture your baby's first days of life in a creative and fun way. You can expect your baby to be treated with lots of love and care, as I treat all my newborn sessions as if they were my own!
Newborn sessions are taken best between 4-10 days old when your baby is very sleepy and flexible. Having your newborn session done within this time frame will allow me to get those adorable sleepy posed shots of your baby! With that being said, you can absolutely schedule a newborn session after this time frame, but it may be a little harder to capture those perfectly posed shots! *I would recommend that you contact me to set up your newborn session before your baby is born, usually within the beginning of your 3rd trimester :)
All newborn sessions are tailored specifically to you and your baby, and include a pre-session consultation via Email (or if requested, over the phone). All clients are asked to complete a Newborn Questionnaire to help Kristin prepare for the session. The questionnaire will help Kristin understand the style, colors, and props needed for the shoot. During this time, Kristin will also discuss wardrobe recommendations for family and sibling shots (if applicable). Once your session is booked, you will receive a Newborn Guide with plenty of tips on how to prepare for your baby’s first photo shoot!
All Newborn Sessions take place at Kristin's in-home studio in West Grove, PA. Kristin does NOT travel for Newborn sessions at this time.
You are probably thinking, Why Studio vs In-home??? The main reason I recommend a studio newborn shoot over an in-home shoot is due to not only the space requirements, but the most important element which is the lighting and props. At Kristin Ann Photography, I offer high end studio lighting, a variety of backdrop options, and tons of high quality props that make it very difficult to travel with, so its recommended to have your Newborn shoot done in studio where you would have access to all props and fabrics offered by Kristin Ann Photography.
The Session Fee for all Newborn Collections include the photographer’s time and talent to capture & retouch images taken during your session. PLEASE NOTE: a $25 Non-Refundable Deposit is Due at Booking in order to secure your time slot. Payment will be accepted via PayPal, Venmo, or Check my mail. Final Payment will be due the day of the Scheduled Session. Due to the uncertainty of when babies arrive, Kristin only books a set number of Newborn Due Dates per month, so its recommended you book as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

HOW TO PREPARE
Newborn sessions tend to last about 2-2.5 hours, due to the need for babies to take more frequent breaks for eating, diaper changes, and snuggles. With that being said, it’s recommended that you give your baby a full feeding prior to the start of the session, along with keeping your baby awake 1-2 hours before the session begins so that your baby is nice and sleepy for their photo shoot! I recommend feeding your baby right before you leave your house or as soon as you arrive to Kristin's Studio. (If you live within 15 minutes travel distance of West Grove, give your newborn a complete feeding right before you leave your house. If you are further than 15 minutes, I recommend feeding baby when you arrive.)
Clients will have full access to use all high quality newborn props offered by Kristin Ann Photography. If you are looking for something specific, please ask Kristin ahead of time before making any purchases elsewhere.
You may also set aside any special props you would like to include in your photos, such as special blanket or other items that have special meaning to your family. It is recommended that you use very simple and classic props. Feel free to discuss all props/photo shoot ideas with Kristin during the pre-session consult.
Your baby’s comfort and safety is my TOP priority. I take great pride in being an expert in newborn safety, posing, and handling of infants. I am completely up to date with all vaccines, including the Tdap (Pertussis/Whooping Cough) vaccine. **Please be sure that anyone handling your baby for newborn portraits has received the Pertussis Vaccine and is licensed and insured.
