Lynchburg Newborn Photographer | Peter's Studio Session


Peter's Newborn Session

In The Studio

This little man was one of the easiest newborn clients I've ever had the pleasure of photographing. He was as happy as can be all swaddled, curled up, and snuggled for his portrait session here in the studio!

All of the blankets and wraps you see in this session were provided by me and are always included in the cost of my newborn session fee. There is no need for parents to bring anything but themselves, their brand new baby, and a diaper bag of their own essentials. Here at the studio I have diapers in all sizes, wipes, hair brushes, blankets, swaddlers, wraps, and even the coveted Baby Shusher (newborn parents - if you don't own one of these you need one today!). The goal of my photo sessions is to create beautiful imagery while also providing a relaxing environment for everyone involved. 

Peter's parents opted for two newborn sessions; one at the studio and one in their home in his brand new nursery. (In-home newborn sessions are reserved for clients who book 3 or more photo sessions with me in their baby's first year.) For the studio session they wanted it to be all about him, so while I worked with Peter on the beanbag, they took this time to rest on the studio couch and enjoy a little time-off from parenting for a few hours! Soon I'll share pictures of the lifestyle session in their home so you can see the whole family together (and how natural and great they are as first time parents)!  

For now, here are a few of my favorites from my time with this little guy all by himself!


Are you expecting and ready to book your newborn session? I am currently booking sessions as far out as late summer 2018. Newborn sessions are best scheduled before your baby has arrived. If you have waited until the last minute, please contact me - if I am able to fit you in, I will! I don't want you to miss out on the opportunity to have this short and sweet season of life documented. 

All newborn sessions include the use of the studio wardrobe, a styling consultation to discuss the look and feel you desire for your session, as well as my exclusive client preparation guide. On site hair and make-up services are also available with our stylist so that you feel relaxed, confident and beautiful at your session. I make the process of preparing for your session simple and seamless, so you can focus on your first priority, taking care of your newborn baby. Contact me today to reserve your session.
