These last few months have been difficult for most small business to find ways to operate safely. Since the beginning of Phase 2 many newborn studios have chosen to open for posed newborn photography but for the time being, I'm only comfortable with outdoor shoots with physical distancing.
I have been contacted by many new and expecting moms that want to capture this precious time when baby is just born and it breaks my heart not be able to accommodate them. As much as I love studio posed newborn photography, with Covid-19 I just don't see a way to be able to conduct these sessions 100% safely. My newborn sessions are 2-2.5 hours that involve me handling the baby with no distancing. Even though I would wash my hands, wash and disinfect the props and wear a mask, the baby is exposed during this very vulnerable time early time in their life (first 2 weeks).
For the time being, I have decided to offer these contactless sessions that I believe are just a beautiful and risk free from any exposure. How it works is that you take your own newborn images in your home. If you are interested, I will send you an email outlining some pointers on how to take the best possible images yourself in your home in your own time even with your phone. The poses I suggest are simple and timeless. You would then send me your favourites and I will edit them for you, and then pose them in my own creative way. What you will receive back for every image, is my own edited image, and a posed image in a colour and a black and white version. The first 4 images below are an example of what to expect.
This service is much more affordable as well. Pricing for these is 1 image $85, 5 images $150 or 10 images for $200.
Below is Layla's session. Mamma did a great job herself and even got a couple with her older siblings and herself. I know these will be treasured forever.
