YOU JUST BOOKED A NEWBORN SESSION!
How exciting! I’m looking forward to meet you and your NEW LITTLE ONE!
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
A newborn session generally lasts between 1 to 2 hours depending on the baby’s mood. :)
HOW DOES IT WORK?
My style is very candid and natural. For the family portraits, I’ll give you some directions and help you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I’ll let you admire your sweet little one and I’ll photograph you looking at him/her and kissing his/her little cheeks and hands. My mission is to capture real moments and to show in images all the love you have for this new little one. For the baby’s individual photos the ideal time is when he/she is sleeping deeply. We take our time to change his diaper and to feed him if necessary. While he’s sleeping, I’ll place him in some simple and comfortable positions on your bed.
WHAT TO DO BEFORE THE SESSION?
It is important to keep the temperature warm in the house or room. It will be more comfortable for the baby and she/he’ll fall asleep more easily. You can change his/her diaper and feed him/her before the session. Please dress your little one before you put him/her to sleep (Just so we don’t wake the baby up!) You can prepare some simple onesies – white and pale ones are perfect! - and muslin blankets for the session.
For newborn photos, the best location is at home. If your bedroom is bright enough, it is always beautiful to do the session on your bed. A white or pale blanket/duvet would be perfect! We can also do the session in any other bright room and/or in the nursery.
THE PRIVATE GALLERY
Once your session is done, you’ll have access to a private photo gallery to make your selection. Then you can decide on how many photos you would like to order. Once your selection is ready, I’ll edit your favourite photos. 3 to 4 weeks later, you’ll receive these high resolution images on a wooden USB key by mail.
A first payment is required on the day of the session. including the basic package and HST, $565,00. It can be a cheque, cash or an Interac transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to order more photos, the balance is required when your selection is done. For more details about the different packages: elzaphotographie.com/baby-family
My style is bright and airy. All your selected photos will be professionally edited (colours, light, aesthetic - pimples, dark circles, double-chins, dust, redness, spots…).
WHAT TO WEAR?
For the baby, some simple onesies, rompers, bloomers, bonnets and muslin blankets are perfect! I recommend looking at Zara (The online mini collection is always adorable!), Gap and MacPherson ToyHouse. For moms, Aritzia, Zara and Gap are also good recommandations.
Here are some suggestions to get the bright and airy look of my photos:
Wear pale and neutral colours
Coordinate but don’t match, for a natural look
Wear different colours and/or tones.
Keep it simple (simple jewellery)
Small patterns will add texture (tiny flowers, small stripes, small dots…)
Different layers can also add texture
Comfortable clothes in which you feel beautiful
Avoid logo, characters and labels
For baby accessories, I also recommend these small shops:
