Newborns by Blencoe + Co.
Once in a lifetime
Ashley has a passion for all things "baby'! Our brand-new Crabapple studio is perfectly appointed for detailed newborn sessions. Ashley will gently document your newborn in accordance with his/her routine and pace. From custom-styled vignettes to warm family embraces, all images are captured digitally at high-resolution.
Newborn sessions generally last about 2-3 hours due to feedings, diaper/clothing changes, soothing breaks, etc. We keep the sessions relaxed and unhurried to keep both baby and parents at ease. Choose from our many lovely props and accessories or utilize your own bespoke pieces for a touch of family history. We utilize simple, vintage props and fabrics to create clean, timeless images.
BOOKING YOUR SESSION
It's best to shoot within the first two weeks if you want to capture that really new, curled-up phase and/or very sleepy-eyed photos. After a few weeks, babies tend to stay awake longer but they do give us better open-eyed shots. Preemies may photograph better after having filled out for a few weeks.
Our shooting calendar fills up 6-8 weeks in advance, so it' s always best to reserve your session early as our boutique studio can only accommodate so many newborns each month. If you'd like to inquire about reserving your session, please complete the form at the bottom of this page. We'll respond pronto with answers to your questions and a link to reserve your session!
We also offer several Baby Plans for bundling sessions together for that first big year! Everything from Belly to 1st Birthday Cake Smash is offered.
Please provide the following details for your session:
PREPARING FOR YOUR SESSION
Before your baby arrives, new parents visit our studio to plan out the styling for the Newborn Session. Parents may select from any of our vintage props, comfy fabrics and wraps, baby accessories and backdrop options. Bring your inspiration and ideas ... together we'll create a shot list to ensure that your session runs smoothly and captures as many of your desired images as baby will allow! While you may have specific images or styling in mind for your baby's session, we strive to make each session unique and in keeping with what you baby will tolerate that day. Ashley will provide you with a detailed list of what to bring, what to wear for parents and/or siblings and what to expect during your session.
AFTER YOUR SESSION
Ahh, relax! Cuddle your little one and get excited for your sneak peek! Your complete gallery of images will be online in 2-3 weeks (a tad longer if during Oct-Dec!). While you're waiting, you can easily get a head start on your announcements by selecting your preferred design from our fabulous artists. Simply email Ashley with your chosen design name & collection:
Once your gallery is online, it's time to show that kid off to the world! You'll be able to order from an array of quality, hand-made photo products and digital downloads easily via your online gallery!
