THE NEWBORN EXPERIENCE

CAPTURING THOSE FLEETING FIRST MOMENTS

A new baby is only new for a very SHORT TIME. As much as we think we will remember the precious moments and details at the beginning of their lives, we won't. The kissable, chubby cheeks, tiny fingers and toes, soft silky hair, pouty lips, and sweet newborn scent will soon be a faint memory. Newborn photography preserves these fleeting details and this is my specialty!

Congratulations mama! I know the decision to have newborn portraits may make you nervous. Will it be safe? Will my baby be fussy or  uncomfortable? I am very happy to answer these questions and more about modern newborn photography.  My newborn photography style is SIMPLE, CLEAN, BABY FOCUSED. The studio is fully stocked with hundreds of newborn outfits, bonnets, hats, headbands, swaddles, posing fabrics, and countless props to style your newborn session. New props and clothing are always being added for a unique session. 

Newborns are captured between DAY 7-15 when they are still very SLEEPY and FLEXIBLE. I assure you, his/her SAFETY and COMFORT are my TOP PRIORITY. I have attended many newborn photography WORKSHOPS, SAFETY and FIRST AID TRAINING, and have handled and cared for hundreds of newborns both personally and professionally for over 30 YEARS. 


My studio is usually booked a few months ahead. Therefore, I recommend you book your newborn session 2-3 months in advance (or ideally at the same time as your maternity session. 

The entire process is just 3 EASY STEPS:

1.SECURE YOUR SESSION: I’ll send you a link to book your session which requires a non-refundable retainer and a signed agreement.We'll place your due date on the calendar after booking to guarantee your session. We'll select an actual session date however, after birth. 

2.PRE-SESSION CONSULTATION: to discuss your newborn session preferences and preparation steps.

3.SHOOT AND REVEAL: At the session, you’ll relax and enjoy refreshments, while I patiently and delicately pose your baby. Your baby will be in your sight at all times. After your session, you will have the opportunity to review and select your favorite portraits and if desired, order beautiful custom designed wall portraits, our popular HEIRLOOM ALBUMS, or other personalized keepsakes for your family to enjoy for generations. Your images will be artistically edited and delivered with the correct lighting and proper skin tone.

THE BABY WHISPERER DOES IT AGAIN!!

"This is my second time working with Lisa Yvette Photography for a newborn/maternity photoshoot & I must say that once again I am extremely happy with the outcome! The photos she took of my family and I are sooooooo beautiful with great quality! Also, She also provides everything you will need for the photoshoot (props, outfits,etc) making it super convenient for your photoshoot. When working with my babies, she handled them with so much love & care!! She is very professional & very patient with the babies because it is not easy working with a newborn or toddler but she made it happen with no problems" -D. Bridges

Happy Clients

We had an AMAZING experience with Lisa and our newborn!"

"In the midst of a pandemic it was incredibly special to be able to capture beautiful moments of our first child when so many other things had to be cancelled. She was extremely clean and safe with our baby during the shoot. Her years of experience in this field and with babies showed clearly during the shoot- we never had any anxiety or fear while she was handling our baby. She is a true gem! We will be booking Her for future shoots and have already referred her to family and friends!!" - Ebony

I'd recommend to anyone looking for full service packages and quality newborn photos

"While working with Lisa, I really respected and felt at ease with her sanitation and cleanliness practices as well as her safe handling of my newborn, especially with covid going around. She made sure safety and care were top priority. Her turnaround time from shoot day to edited picture delivery was fast and we received our finished order within a few business days when promised, and with her service, you get what you pay for which is excellence, and it's worth every penny!" -Majesty
