Award Winning Newborn Portraiture

By Michelle Lewis

The birth of a child marks a defining moment in your life.

From this day forward, EVERYTHING changes.
   
You have a new reason for living. You have a new reason to love.

And just weeks from now, your little one will no longer fit so tiny in your arms.

They are only this little for so long.

With a newborn portrait session at Beaux & Arrow Photography we will help you preserve those memories forever.

know with all of my being that photographing babies is what I'm meant to be doing. My heart tells me so every single day and I am so lucky to be able to do what I am passionate about.

The Newborn Experience

01. Planning your session

It is best to book your session at least 3 months prior to your due date. Newborns are best photographed between 4-14 days. Because babies are so unpredictable, I will use your due date to hold your spot and as soon as your little one is born we will set an exact date for your session. This is to ensure you are guaranteed a session with me. However, please contact me if you have not pre-booked your session, as I may have a last minute opening.

02. Your Newborn session

Request a Consultation

03. Viewing Appointment

And that’s not the end! Our families often come to us for other milestones. As your children grow and change, it will be time to update your portraits. So right from the start we plan, knowing that more may come. And we design around that! The next time you work with us, we’ll create art that coordinates with sessions past, so you can build on to what we’ve already created for you in a way that works and delights you year after year.

This is where the fun finishes! The Viewing & Ordering Appointment is the time when you get to see all the fruits of the session pay off. This is the time when you will finalize your portrait order, so be sure to pick a time where both mom and dad can be there. Your images will be printed and displayed in the studio and we’ll help you sort through the images and make final decisions on what will look best with your decor. Specializing in wall series and heirloom albums, some of the products we offer are one-of-a-kind. All of them are sure to get you excited about what lies ahead!

You will find my studio to be a warm and calm environment for your new little addition. I follow baby's cues and make sure baby feels safe and comfortable. As a mother, this is second nature to me.
I plan your session based on your wants and needs. We will start with a phone and/or email consultation so I can learn what your likes and dislikes are, as well as what you are looking for in your session.
Parents and siblings may be included in some of the images as well to capture the new family as a whole! 

LOVE HER WORK, SHE GETS BEAUTIFUL IMAGES EVEN IF IT’S A LOT OF WORK TO GET THEM!
