THE NEWBORN EXPERIENCE
What can you expect from your Newborn or Baby Session with Megan Papachristou Photography? You can expect to be greeted with an understanding smile, and probably a warm hug. I am a mother too, and so whatever you are experiencing, whether it be sleepless nights or the joy of watching first steps, I have been there before and I am excited to share some stories from my journey while I document yours! You’ll also experience a safety and practicality that comes from trained professionals...I will not ever try to “get the shot” if it means compromising the well-being of your child. That means no unassisted newborn poses (though I might ask for your hand) and no unsafe mediums to support your child. While I would like you to relax and enjoy the session, you can also count on me to verbally guide you through the session, so there are no surprises, and you feel comfortable that your baby is in good hands.
Finally, you can expect that you will have fun. My clients usually end their session by saying “it felt like we were hanging out with an old friend!” or “that was wonderful... we were so worried.” I am not in this for the session, I am in it for the relationship, for the chance to tell your story, for the lifetime of your baby, and your family!
NEWBORN SESSION DETAILS
When should you book?
Because this magical stage of life passes in the blink of an eye, newborn portraits are captured during the first two weeks of life while your little one is still well-fed, sleepy and content. I will keep your due date on file and stay in touch with you as the exciting day approaches, making adjustments to fit you in at just the perfect time.
Where will the Session be held?
You may book it as a lifestyle session in the comforts of your own home or you may book it as a studio session to take place in my studio.
And by all means, include any siblings (of the two or four-legged variety) as this is an exciting time for your entire family! I will capture both individual and family images to tell your entire story!
