McLevich Studio Newborn Session-Roseville Newborn Photographer

I get questions so often about the scheduling process for booking studio newborn sessions, so thought I’d write a quick blog post about it.

The most ideal time to capture newborns I’ve found is right at the 14 day mark after birth. The goal with studio newborn sessions is to capture the baby while sleeping. We do this so you can get them in different props and poses with as much variation as possible. Sleeping babies are happy babies so that is always the most ideal. That being said, some babies do arrive to the studio alert. I’ll do my best to prepare you ahead with instructions to try to avoid that when possible. It’s very rare that after parents follow these instructions that babies are awake throughout the entire session.

I take a limited amount of studio newborn sessions per month, so it is best to schedule in advance. We will save your due date on my calendar and then after baby arrives adjust to that two week mark. I do studio newborn sessions in the mornings only and primarily on weekdays.

Have more questions about scheduling a studio newborn session?

Contact me today and we’ll set up a quick phone consult or chat at the studio!

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog! I’m Stephanie, a family and newborn photographer in Sacramento. I live in Lincoln, California and my studio is in Roseville.   I love telling the story of motherhood, movement in images, I love connection, I love golden, dappled light and the way it dances and bounces around on my subject’s skin. I love airy images as well as moody images and I continuously dip my toe in whatever moves me for the day, which, I think is so important.

 I offer studio and on-site sessions. Studio sessions are available for newborns, sitters and expectant mothers. My studio offers beautiful, natural light creating special memories with an organic and airy feeling. I also offer the use of my studio wardrobe, taking the pressure off of you so that you can enjoy the experience without having to worry about shopping for your entire family. I would love to be invited to capture your family memories, I promise to help make the process fun and relaxing.
