There is precious new life growing by the minute in your belly, how exciting! Congratulations, you have begun the beautiful journey of parenthood. If there's any time in your life to hire a professional photographer, it's now. Book a maternity session with Zelli and let her capture the beauty, joy and excitement surrounding the anticipation of the arrival of your new baby. Maternity sessions are best booked between 32 and 37 weeks, but most importantly when Momma feels most comfortable! I typically do maternity sessions outdoors because I love to use natural sunlight in my photographs.
Oh BABY, do I love newborn sessions! Who wouldn’t want to snuggle a teeny, tiny, perfect being who is only days old? Yes, only days old. To ensure that we capture all of the adorable newness that your newborn lights up your world with, we need your newborn to be just that...new. I like to do these sessions within 14 days after the birth while your little bundle of perfection is still doing those adorable (and sleepy) womb-like behaviors...you know, those fleeting little moments you will want to capture and remember forever. How much time should you block off in your day for your session? It takes a little extra time and love to capture such sweet perfection. Since your baby needs to be in a deep slumber to be posed, these sessions typically last an average of 2-3 hours (sometimes more!), leaving enough time for your baby to fall asleep. The tiny human is in charge during these sessions!
Types of Newborn Sessions
Zi Photography offers two options for newborn sessions. These sessions differ in style to allow you to choose what fits you best.
Custom Studio Newborn Session
This is Zelli's favorite type of newborn session and it's the most popular too! It's the one to get if you want your new little bundle to receive the royal custom “Anne Geddes” treatment! Zelli carefully designs a custom look from the fabric and baskets to the hats and headbands. Whether the materials are handmade by Zelli herself or purchased, it is all included in the package. Zelli loves to work with you to combine your vision with hers to ultimately create beautiful images of your new addition that speak to you as a family. This session takes place at the Zi Photography studio within 14 days of the birth.
Lifestyle Newborn Session
Zelli travels to you within 14 days of the birth, and in the comfort of your own home, she guides you into those candid moments of love and joy with your new baby. This is a more intimate session that is all about telling your story through my lens and capturing the beginning of this beautiful new chapter in your life.
