Simply Luminescent is a portrait studio located in Napoleon Oh. Our Newborn photography has been published several times, I cannot wait to capture your precious little one.
Newborn Prep Guide
Newborn sessions are for babies that are 4 to 20 days old.
Newborns arrive with easy to remove clothing on ( nothing that comes overhead to come off, more like button up.)
If you do not breastfeed bring plenty of formula for baby- they do get hungry.
Bring plenty of diapers and a going home outfit
You can bring any special props or clothing you have ( a special blanket, pillow, grandparent stuffed animal shirt, etc..)
Depending on your situation parent/siblings can be included in half of the session, this is discussed during your consultation.
Parents/Siblings should wear black, white, tan, ivory, navy or related coloring clothing with no words, images, and minimal designs.
These sessions can be 1 hour or 4 - the baby is the boss!
After your completed Newborn Shoot you are given a Gift Voucher to shoot a 6-9 month Sitter Session because we love return clients and helping capture your little one while they grow and change
We do shoot babies that are well into their 1st or 2nd month we just need to know in advance to plan for a bigger baby and more awake poses.
When you arrive to the studio for your newborn shoot:
I will be waiting for you to arrive to help you carry in baby/bags if needed.
There is a couch in the room so you will be present but able to relax.
We start the sessions off with parent
Then add in siblings ( siblings should then leave with a parent or grandparent as it is hot and boring. Loud siblings means less sleepy happy baby poses)
Baby By themselves to finish off the session. The room will be warm for baby to stay cozy and sleepy.
How long will it take to view portraits from the session:
After your photo shoot is over I will help you get baby gathered and back to your vehicle as needed.
5 - 8 days after the shoot I will send you an email to pick a day where you can come look at your session and that is when you decide what you love and want to buy.
Once your order is fulfilled you can pick up your order or I can have it shipped to you.
You will also have a Gift Voucher to bring the baby back for a complimentary sitter session (6-9-month-old sessions).
We also have a great referral program!
Do I offer payment plans? -
Yes, we have 2 payment plan options you can review and select which one is best for your family.
What time frame should you schedule your shoot?
- Depends on your baby. Personally, I would set the time for their major nap and bath also helps wear them out.
Location: My studio offers two locations: but with newborns, it's best to be in the studio. Retouching: My images are professionally retouched. You will have no bruises or breakouts in your final gallery.
