Standard newborn sessions with Holly LeBlanc Photography generally run between 2-3 hours. They take place in my Bordentown, NJ studio during the baby’s first couple weeks of life. During these sessions I capture a wide variety of portraits that may include family, siblings, baby snuggled in props (crates, buckets, baskets), wrapped and naked poses on fur and blankets. Please contact me while you are still expecting to guarantee a spot on my calendar! Within 2-3 weeks of your session, you will be contacted with an online password protected proofing gallery and slideshow with at least 25 professionally edited images. The images are available to view for 5 days during which time your order is placed. Digital and prints/products are available.
New for 2018 are newborn mini sessions. These are designed for those of you looking for just a handful of images of baby or a great alternative for those of you on a budget. The session will take place in my studio and last about 1 hour. Baby will be wrapped for the entire session (no naked poses). Sibling and family may be included. Sleeping poses will not be guaranteed, although most babies find being wrapped very relaxing. Newborn sessions are generally best for babies 2 weeks and younger, but this can be a great alternative for the 3-4 week baby as well. 10 images will be included and delivered digitally with prints and products available for purchase separately.
I am often asked “What should I wear to my session?” I’d be happy to offer some personalized suggestions for you. As a general rule, it is best to avoid logos and intense patterns or prints. Blue jeans always look casual and classic paired with a simple top and bare feet can give a fun, care-free look. Newborns are best photographed in their bare skin or wrapped (provided during your session). A white tank with thick straps is perfect for newborn and mom portraits.
