Welcome to the Family Jax!

11 January 2023 | Newborn

I absolutely love all of the newborns we meet. I love the cuddles, I love that fresh baby smell, and I love how so many of them transport me back to when my children were babies. But wow, it really hits different when that newborn is family. My cousin had a baby just before Christmas, and holy I fell in love. Welcome to the Family Jax!

I really love that they chose a woodsy type background for their family photos, as Jax’s nursery is a woodland theme.

We never know how a baby is going to be during a session. They can’t understand us, they can’t tell us what’s wrong, so we always have to take the baby’s lead. Luckily Jax is a very content baby and he slept for us the whole time!

Right after his session, his cousins (my boys!) were on the couch, arms outstretched, ready for their turn at cuddling him!

We love you already so much, welcome to the Family Jax!

Grandma came to the session, so we OF COURSE had to include her!

Some common questions we get asked about newborn photography:

  • When should we book newborn photos?
    The sooner the better! Especially in the summer, when our season is busy, it can be hard to squeeze in last minute inquiries. We typically get bookings anytime from 12 week-30 weeks. And sometimes after baby is born! We will always try to accommodate everyone, but to guarantee a booking, please inquire before baby is born.
  • How can we book a date when we don’t know when baby is coming?
    We choose a tentative date based on your due date, to make sure you are you in our calendar. Once baby comes, then we confirm the day, change it if we need to, and get you booked in.
  • When should newborn photos be done?
    Newborns are best photographed between 7-15 days old. As they get older, they are less sleepy, more alert, and less mouldable. Things happen though! We understand that – so if we need to book in a bit later than that, we will!
  • Can we request poses or colours for our session?
    Yes, absolutely! We do ask for understanding that all poses are based on baby – sometimes some poses just don’t work out. But we will absolutely try our best!
  • Are family photos included in the session?
    Yes! Our full newborn sessions include family photos, sibling photos, just mom and dad. Those family photos are SO important – they’re your first family photographs!
