Newborn Photographer Ann Norment of Ann’s Photography and Maternity Photographer located in Laurel Portrait Studio, downtown Fort Mill SC loves to capture this very special time, your newborn changes so quickly and the first few weeks of life is the time to capture that look before it fades.
Newborn Photography is a highly specialized skill that takes a lot of training to make sure your child is safe during their session. When searching for a Newborn Photographer, it is important to know that hands will always be on your child and to understand that many poses and images are not possible without composite work which is captured using a tripod and having hands on the child during poses that are not something a newborn can achieve on their own. The artwork is completed in editing removing hands and compositing a few frames into one portrait.
According to this Virginia Photographer newborn sessions generally take approximately 3 hours but can last longer. For best results, you will want to feed your baby when you arrive for the session. Please see our Newborn FAQ sheet for a successful newborn portrait session. Dress your newborn in loose clothing that will be easy to remove by your Newborn Photographer. Once you arrive, you can feed your newborn so we can get them into a deep sleep. We will swaddle them before you start to feed them. Newborn Photography is a lot like wedding photography, there is no do overs. Be sure you search and choose your Newborn Photographer a few months before your due date. Many Newborn Photographers have a special deal for combining your Maternity and Newborn session as well as various baby’s first year plans. We do all of our work in studio and provide most of the props but do encourage you to bring some special items as well to personalize it. We try to customize each session to the decor of the nursery or something special that represents you and your family. This is why we ask for a in person consultation when booking your newborn session so we can gather information and plan your session. It is important to us that we provide you artwork and not just pictures of your family and newborn. We offer a complete line of framed product as well as albums, gallery wraps, metal prints, wall collages of various materials and gallery blocks for you to choose from.
