A WORD FROM SARAH

“A session with me is more than just sending you off with digital files, my goal is to create an extraordinary newborn experience for every single client. From your baby’s delicate eyelashes, fresh wrinkled toes, soft kissable lips, fuzzy little shoulders, to those heart melting first sleepy smiles…capturing all the details of your newborn and providing you with beautiful, timeless images that you will cherish for a lifetime is a tremendous honor. This is such a special time. Twenty years from now I want you to remember the way your heart was overflowing with love and amazement and awe. I want you to remember sitting in my studio still in disbelief that this beautiful and perfect being is really yours. Like choosing a photographer for your wedding, this is a moment in time that can’t be redone. I truly love what I do and enjoy getting to know the families that I work with. I would be more than honored to work with your family and grow with you over the years.” ~Sarah

THE DIFFERENCE

Sarah is Lincoln’s premier newborn photographer and her work is easily recognized by the beautiful lighting, flawless skin tones, and meticulous posing perfected in every single image. Over the last 12 years, Sarah has photographed hundreds of newborns. Along with years of experience safely posing & handling newborns, she has also received several photographic awards of excellence for her newborn work, had her photography nationally published, and has been a teacher & mentor to other professional photographers.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The average full newborn session generally lasts about 2.5-3 hours. A couple days before your session Sarah will give you a call to chat about what to expect during the session and your styling/prop preferences. The day of your session, the studio will be warm and ready to begin once you arrive. Ideally Sarah prefers babe to sleep the entire time. Throughout the session Sarah will work with your little one, posing, soothing, cuddling to sleep, etc. Parents are free to sit back and relax, and sometimes even nap. :) The studio has a constantly revolving supply of props available to choose from…hats, headbands, chairs, boxes, baskets, etc. Approximately 7-10 days after your session, your gallery & ordering/download link will be available.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When should I schedule my session?
You’re welcome to reserve your date at any time, however Sarah recommends booking your session for sure once you reach the 2nd trimester. Sarah often books up 3-4 weeks in advance, so please call Sarah BEFORE your little one arrives to guarantee a spot. A tentative session time will be reserved based upon your due date.

Why choose Sarah?
Experience. Quality. Reputation. There are many considerations beyond price to think about when choosing your newborn photographer. The art of newborn photography is much more than just clicking a button – it really is a fine art – which you will have a greater appreciation for after your session. :) From preparing the setups for the session, hours of handling your baby the day of the session, meticulous posing to ensure baby looks relaxed and comfortable, knowledge of lighting and posing to ensure mama always looks beautiful, editing the images to perfection, etc. Price is always an important consideration, however, newborn photography is hard work and usually the least expensive photographer is also the least experienced. The investment is worth it and Sarah guarantees you will love your images.

Do we come to your studio?
Yes, Sarah has a home studio in southwest Lincoln – 27th & Yankee Hill area. Have a peek at the studio here!

Is one week too soon? What if I’m not feeling well yet?
No worries at all! In order to capture the true essence of a newborn, the ideal time for a newborn session is within 7-10 days. At 2+ weeks babies start to be awake more, require much more soothing during a session, and aren’t as easily posed as newborns at 7-10 days. Once you arrive at the studio, Sarah will take over. Moms are required to do very little except feed babe when needed, other than that you will be able to relax on the couch, so there is no worry if you aren’t feeling 100% – that is to be expected. If you get babe here, we’ll take care of the rest.

Should I bring a special outfit?
Most newborn images are done without clothing. Sarah will be in touch before the session to go over everything you need to know before the session.

How long will my session last?
Sessions are tailored to the individual newborns. The average session lasts about 2.5 hours…however, sessions can last 3+ hours depending on the needs of your little one. Plenty of time is allowed for feeding and soothing. *Newborn mini sessions are limited to 1 hour.

Can you recreate these images I found on Pinterest?
If you see an image that inspires you, Sarah is happy to discuss what is most meaningful to you about the image and create something similar in style that you’ll love. She won’t, however, re-create a list of 10 Pinterest images. :)
