How a Session Works from a Milwaukee Newborn Photographer

As you start to count down the months, weeks and days before your new baby’s arrival, your to-do tends to grow very long with various tasks to be completed. One of those items on your list is likely finding a Milwaukee Newborn Photographer. When searching for a photographer to capture this exciting milestone in your life, it is important to choose one that meets your style and the overall look and feel you are hoping to achieve from your photography session. If you are looking for someone that offers in-studio posed newborn and family photos, then I am your girl! My professional photography studio located in Brookfield, WI offers everything you need for your photography session.

Once you decide that I am the Milwaukee Newborn Photographer for you, reach out to me and say hi! From there we will talk about who will be included in the photos, what color wraps and outfits you prefer and any preference on which props you want me to style your session with. As a fully posed Milwaukee Newborn Photographer, I provide all outfits, wraps, and props needed for your baby. I can also help you with styling for the rest of the family.

To keep your mind at ease, remember, your baby is the boss of the session and completely leads the way. If you they are hungry, we stop and let them eat. If they need a diaper change or a few extra snuggles from me, we take the time to make that happen. As a result, newborn sessions are normally 2-3 hours long and are typically held in the morning.

You come to my Brookfield Photography Studio

My photography studio is located within The Stonewood Village Shoppes off Capital Drive in Brookfield. It is a 400sq. ft. space equipped with professional grade studio equipment, props and accessories. I send a prep guide to you before your session but you can take a peek at it here. I have a seating area for family members, a feeding corner for Mom/Dad and baby and a changing table so you are as comfortable as can be. When you walk into my studio you will see 3-5 different scenes set up that we will use to pose baby during your session.

During Your Session

Your new baby is the boss of the session. As mentioned above, your baby leads the way and we give them the time and space needed to stay happy, content and comfortable the full photography session. I normally start with posing your baby on my newborn table. This is where we get images of them posed on a solid color backdrop in adorable poses such as froggy, bum up, side lay, and chin on hands. From there, we move to wrapped poses in props. After that, we finish off the session with posed family images. The family images are always at the end of the session, unless there are siblings involved. Then, we move that part of the session to the beginning.

After Your Session

Following your session I will create a gallery of image proofs for you to view. Then, you’ll pick your favorite images based on the number of images purchased in your package. From there I will professionally edit the images and send you the final image gallery. That process normally takes about a week or so.

As Baby Grows

Your baby will grow quickly and you will come to realize just how important capturing each milestone is. I offer custom packages for milestone session and family sessions for returning clients and would love to chat with you about them!
