Wait I’m sorry but did someone just say outdoor newborn session in the middle of January?????? lol yes I did, but don’t worry I am not suggesting that we head outside for an hour or two in the 20 degree weather with your precious newborn. So why am I talking about this now? Well because over the past few months tons of women have discovered they are pregnant and due this upcoming summer! If you are anything like me you started planning every detail for your newborn early in your pregnancy. If you are due this summer you may have already started dreaming of having newborn portraits taken. Since I ask my clients to contact me before 20 weeks when possible it is never too early to start talking about outdoor sessions this summer!!!
Outdoor newborn sessions are by far my favorite sessions for newborns. There is something about having a sweet new life surrounded by the beauty and majesty of nature that really inspires me. Its almost like taking a newborn on their first little adventure 😉 I do believe that these sessions are not for everyone however but here are a few reasons you may want to choose them for your summer baby:
- Nature lover. If you are like me and love nature and the outdoors, indoor session may just not fit your style. Chances are too that your baby will love the outdoors as much as you do so this is a great way to introduce that love of nature to them, after all they will be looking at these portraits for the rest of their lives.
- Your nursery is somehow nature inspired. If you have a nursery that is decorated with animals, butterfly’s or bugs, trees or anything else nature inspired what better way to finish the look than by hanging a beautiful canvas of your baby in nature in the room (and maybe even one of you pregnant with them!). I love to tie the nursery colors and themes into my newborn portraits so make sure to tell me if you have a nursery theme when you book.
- You want something unique. Although outdoor newborn sessions have gained popularity in recent years the majority of parents still choose to do studio or in home newborn sessions. If you love having something unique and want portraits that will be different from the newborn portraits your friends and family took with their baby these might be perfect for you!
A little more about outdoor newborn portraits: I can schedule outdoor sessions for newborns from May to September however I always have a backup plan to more the session to an indoor location if needed due to weather or the health of the baby. In some cases I may be able to offer one weather reschedule if you have your heart set on outdoor but the weather does not cooperate. Because of the time these sessions take (typically 2 hours) they are always scheduled for two hours before sunset and I cannot schedule them for locations without shade. I do not like to have the babies in the sun that long and the lighting can be too harsh at the beginning of the session for great portraits so shade is a must. If you want to learn more about these sessions and reserve your spot for this summer please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
