Newborn Photography Studio – Danielle Morhaus Photography

Having a newborn photography studio gives parents a great option for their newborn portraits.  These timeless treasures are created with love, I just love babies.  I pay extra attention to each detail that makes newborns so special.  I have a wide variety of backgrounds, wraps, and props in all sizes and colors to choose from.

It’s best to photograph newborns in the first two weeks after their birth.  Doing this gives us the best chance that baby will sleep for their session which allows us to get those perfect sleeping poses.  Plan on being in the studio for 2-3 hours.  This will allow for plenty of time to capture the baby as well as immediate family with the baby (Mom, Dad, Siblings).

With two young children of my own, I understand how much work it can take to get out the door with a new baby.  I have set up my studio to be as comfortable for parents as possible.  Complete with a feeding area, changing station and sofa to relax on.  Just bring the baby, diapers and the milk!

The T Family Newborn Session

For this session we had Mom, Grandma, older sister and newborn baby sister in the studio.  We decided to start with the family and sibling photos because baby was awake and older sister was very excited.  These timeless photos were taken in front of a gray background.  I just love how they pop up against it.

Then I photographed just Mom and newborn baby.  I really try to focus on their connection and the bond they are developing.  This will include close up’s and details of how Mom is holding baby.

After we completed all the family photos, it was time to switch to the posed sleeping newborn photos (yay!).  She was an angel and went right to sleep for me.

She was happy on her back or her side, and stayed asleep as I changed the backgrounds, wraps and headbands around.  What an angel!

Don’t forget all the tiny details of that precious baby girl!  Newborn noses, lips, fingers, hands toes and feet, I record them all.  They are only this small for such a short while!newborn photographer
