It’s Denver Baby Photography week! (Ok, not really – I made that up. But that last blog post of baby props really put me in the mood to share some of my favorite Denver baby photos – some with props, and some just pure newborn baby goodness!
(BTW, if you are looking to have newborn photos taken of your baby, I always recommend booking in your 6th month, about 3 months from your due date. We’ll put a date on the calendar approx 5 days after birth (but always before 10 days old!), and I’ll keep some flexibility in the weeks before and after, so make sure we can slide the date around to accommodate your actual delivery date. )
A quick word on baby skin – newborn baby skin can be quite splotchy, dry, red, etc. I do a little skin smoothing, but I don’t want your baby to look like he or she is made of plastic. I prefer a more natural look – or perhaps we should call it a “slightly optimized” natural look. 😉
Artistic Denver Baby Photography
Do you have a friend who is expecting? The baby plan is a perfect baby shower gift for the moms-to-be in your life. And it makes a great Baby Shower Gift that several people can go in on.
A Baby Plan lets you capture all the wonderful changes in your baby’s first year, with a custom portrait session at each milestone:
Maternity (Joy & Anticipation)
The start of your baby’s journey! We suggest maternity sessions take place around 28-35 weeks and are usually held outdoors. Maternity sessions capture and convey the joy and excitement you and your partner have for your baby.
Newborn (Sleepy Sweet Goodness)
Newborn sessions take place between 2 – 10 days old, so that we can capture their sweet sleepy newborn goodness. These are held indoors, usually at our studio.
3 Months (Tummy Time)
Your baby has become so alert, pushing up on his or her tummy and giving social smiles and even laughs! And those sweet little rolls on their legs! These sessions can be held outdoors if the weather is nice, or at our studio, or even sometimes at our client’s home.
6 months (Sitting Up)
Your baby can now sit up on his or her own and turns to follow you where ever you are. And you know the special noises that elicit great belly laughs. We’ll capture their personality, be it outgoing and vivacious or sweet, shy and reserved.
9 months (Crawling)
Your baby can now crawl, and maybe even stand up with assistance. S/he may even be cruising by holding onto something. We’ll capture your child’s curiosity, smiles and mobility.
1 year (Almost a Toddler!)
Wow! Your baby is about to leave babyland for toddlerhood. We’ll celebrate their 1st birthday, include some of their favorite toys, have you read their favorite book to them. We can even do a cake smash session where you bring a small cake and we let your baby get MESSY!
At the end, you have lovely custom portraits to celebrate and document their first year of life, and to preserve (and display) those memories forever!
