» Nikki Painter Photography Specializing in Newborn Portraiture.

Investment | Newborn

Newborn Sessions include my time in preparing and customizing the session,  photographing baby, enhancement of images, and social media sneak peek images. Fully enhanced high resolution digital images in color AND black & white, with print release also included. Print and share as much and as big as you’d like! My studio is also packed full of backdrops, props, wraps, hats, headbands and more, in a variety of colors so no need to shop! Newborns are best photographed in the first 6-12 days. When you book your newborn session, I will pencil in your due date and we will schedule the actual session date/time once baby is born.

I love babies…. much more than I love photography! So your baby’s safety is my number one concern during your session. Also, because I take special care and extra time to be sure you get the best images this sometimes means waiting on baby to get sleepy, so there is plenty of time for feedings and cuddles.  As a mom of four, I know how important patience and safety is when working with babies so we always work to make sure baby is safe, comfortable and happy during the session. Sessions can take up to 3 hours but there is plenty of room to relax with a drink and snack in my cozy studio. I have been photographing babies and children for over 12 years and feel blessed to have the best job in the world!
