It happens so quickly, the moment they are born they start to change...you will see a difference in just moments, then minutes, then hours, and days. It is truly fascinating.
Having a hospital visit from Poppy Photography documenting the first few hours of life will be something you will treasure and never ever regret.
the Fresh 48 + Newborn Experience
As soon as that babe(s) is born, we make arrangements to come to you in the hospital or your home (if home birthed.) We spend up to 30 minutes capturing the first few hours of life and then come back in a few weeks to a month for the newborn family session.
The newborn family session is scheduled during a weekday morning in the comfort of your home. This means you don’t have to venture out, you get to relax in your own environment and I come to you in the comfort of your home.
Newborn to us means within 30 days of birth. Some new parents feel too much pressure to pack up their babies and head to a studio within the first 3-7 days of life. Let me tell you it is not easy those first few days, trying to navigate this new experience completely sleep deprived. You might not want to spend 3-4 hours away from home that first week trying for that first photograph. Sometimes there is so much going on that you forget that photographs were some thing you were interested in and by the time you remembered, it's too late. So if having us come to you, in your own environment + time-frame, capturing real life moments sounds appealing to you then you should book your experience.
The portrait session is very relaxed and go with the flow. I will capture your family engaging with one another, I want you to be camera unaware, all snuggly and smitten. We won't be wrapping up the baby and placing in baskets or spending hours trying to get baby to sleep so they can be moulded into origami positions. It will be beautiful and simple and real. We will use the best light available in your home, maybe that’s the master bedroom, the main living area, or the kitchen.
The session will run anywhere from 30 mins - 1 hour, this will give us enough time to get a beautiful selections of photographs that you will be able to choose and purchase from.
Two weeks after our session together, I will come back to your home and present you with the best photographs captured. We will go through each photograph individually, you can then select the ones you love and order them at this appointment.
Beautiful art pieces include storybook albums, birch mounted professionally printed photographs, gallery wrapped canvases as well as shareable digital options.
