Are Two Week Babies still Newborns?

New babies come at you like a tornado. No matter how much you plan or how much you learn, there is always something unexpected that will come at you out of nowhere. Everyone who has babies has run out of diapers, forgot to write down a feeding, forgot to pick up the first child because the you were napping with the new child. Seriously, life is going to happen. But what if your tornado moment is an unexpected LONGER stay in the hospital? I had two Mom's this week tell me that they missed their newborn portraits because there baby had to stay in the hospital. I was immediately sad both times and inquired how long they had to stay. One was 3 weeks and one was only 2 weeks and both equally thought they MISSED it. If you are nervous about the upcoming birth of your baby, I say to you - don't worry about portraits. At Ellenburg Photography, We've got this.

I'd like YOU to meet baby Jace photographed at 20 days.

If you have a baby that is older than 10 days, you don't need a different photographer. You need a photographer with a NEW plan. Daphne Ellenburg specializes in babies of all ages. Ellenburg Photography has newborn portrait plans for all ages to make the portrait experience easy for both Mom and baby. Babies over 10 days have settled into a routine. Knowing that routine helps Daphne Ellenburg select the best time for portraits and the best props to use during your newborn portrait session. Ellenburg Photography customizes a homework guide for each baby to take the stress out of newborn portraits. Your homework will come with a bring list and do list and a DO NOT list. If you do the homework, you will get amazing portraits. It's that simple. 

Don't leave photographing this tiny miracle to an amateur. Daphne Ellenburg Photographs hundreds of babies each year at her Saraland Alabama portrait studio. This valuable experience has helped mold the homework to a near fool-proof guide. And like my Momma always said, "Planning is next to Godliness." Let's plan a portrait adventure together.

How do I decide on how much time I need in the studio for my Newborn Portraits?

Daphne Ellenburg makes choosing how much time you need in the studio easy with just a few questions and a wonderful variety of sessions to fit exactly what you are looking for in your South Alabama Newborn Photography. Every sessions includes a portrait consult. During your consult we ask all the right questions to help you decide what session will perfectly fit your needs. Questions like: Are you first time parents? Will you be bringing your new baby's siblings? Who will bring you to the session? Is there a special portrait that you would like us to create for you?

With new baby Brantley, his parents knew that they wanted both family portraits and portraits of their boys together. Knowing that Big brother is only 2, and learning how excited he is to be a big brother flagged them for needing more time. With more time, you always get MORE for MORE. Extra time in the studio eases your worries about, will my baby be fussy? Will we have time for family portraits and sibling portraits? The NEW Luxury Studio session takes all the worry out of your Newborn session.

How much is too much?

The biggest question we have from new parents is: "What do I bring to my Newborn Session?"  Leaving the house for the first time with that perfect little angel is a real wake up call for your packing skills. The first time, if feels like you are moving. Seriously. You think....What do I need, well obviously I need everything....diapers, diaper stuff, clothes, more clothes, extra blankets, extra pacifiers, bottles, extra bottles...breathe. Stop.  Just breathe. Daphne Ellenburg's Newborn homework will really save the day.

Every portrait session at Ellenburg Photography includes homework and a bring list. So no matter what we do for you, you will get a list of suggested things to bring and suggested things to do. We've been doing this for quite a while, so you can trust us. And for newborns, no one is better than South Alabama Photographer, Daphne Ellenburg. If you are nervous, Daphne will assure you that everyone is nervous. But the proof is in our homework. If you do the homework, you will have a great session. If you miss a few, but do the items listed in BOLD, you will have a great session. 

Our checklist includes things that you should have in your diaper bag, it has a list of things to pack the day before - so you don't have to think about it. Our list will ask you to bring one special item for your new baby to be photographed with and one special outfit. 

Baby Elizabeth (shown above) was given a strand of pearls by her father on the day she was born. This was the perfect thing to bring along for this family's "special item." Other great specials things could be: A family quilt, A sonogram photo or other special photograph, New fun shoes, a headband or crown - if it is special to you, Daphne Ellenburg will make it part of your shoot. 

For your special outfit, many new parents bring the coming home outfit from the hospital. After all, a lot of you parents are spending sometimes hundreds of dollars on that one outfit, it's the perfect add in to your session. Other things that are great to bring is vintage clothing from your childhood - some grandparents saved a ton of sweet delicate baby clothes. Ask them if they have any that you could bring along. Can you imaging having a photo of you and your baby in the exact same outfit? So fun. If you have the first photo, bring it along and Ellenburg Photography can try to match the style.

The next most important part of your homework, is to plan to be photographed with your child. We poll all of our new parents at the consults and ask them if they have a photograph of their Mom with them as a newborn? Less than 5% can say yes to anything more than just a snapshot. We will create a gorgeous portrait of you and your new baby that will reflect all the joy you feel in your heart back to you like a mirror. We will also photograph your first family portrait. The homework comes with a suggested wardrobe guide to make it easy.

The homework includes things to eat and not eat if you are breastfeeding. It includes a sleep schedule and a suggested feeding schedule. It includes a list of things to bring.

The LIST is a lifesaver. When you do your homework, you make the most of your time in the studio and get really stunning portraits of that beautiful new baby.

Did you KNOW?

Did you know that Daphne Ellenburg stocks custom wraps, head pieces and one of a kind outfits for newborn portraits? You have access to all her gorgeous treasures that she has been accumulating for over 15 years to use during your session. This alone takes so much pressure off our new parents. Relax and let Daphne Ellenburg create the beautiful portraits you've been dreaming of your whole life.
