K Jay Photography, Madison, specializes in newborn portraits capturing their little hands and feet in precious newborn portraits to cherish a lifetime. www.kjayportraits.com
- We have several unique newborn hats, props to use in your newborn portraits.
- We like to create a plan before your baby is even born, have you send a picture of your nursery and then contact us right after delivery. An ideal time to photograph your newborn baby is within the first week. After two weeks of age it becomes more difficult to capture the precious sleeping baby pictures that so many new parents treasure.
- We encourage parents to bring along things that have meaning (a favorite blanket or blanket that the grandmother knitted or a baby bracelet, something that has meaning). We have plenty of things though so do not feel like you need to bring anything.
What to expect during your newborn portrait session.
- We will touch base with you a day or two before the newborn photo shoot.
- Recap some of the props we will use, set the exact time which often is based on the babies schedule and ask you to bring the baby hungry.
- Before we begin photographing your newborn, we will dress the baby for their first round of pictures before they eat. Then when they are deep asleep we will begin photographing the baby, changing the props, backgrounds and hats/accessories as often as the little one will allow us:)
- We usually end with family photos and the baby in your arms for final shots with Mom and Dad if you desire. Our black background is very popular for this newborn portrait. Plan on dressing in either black or white as then your family portraits can easily be turned into beautiful black and white newborn pictures. Also, dress light as the environment we photograph your newborn in is very toasty which helps the baby sleep especially during Wisconsin winters:)
- Your portraits will be uploaded within a few days to a private password protected personal webpage for you to share with family and friends. You can order high quality prints from this page at very affordable pricing and download your favorite pictures to save for years to come.
When to reserve your newborn portrait session?
- Before you go to delivery so we can let you know what our schedule looks like and plan on your estimated arrival date.
