Specializing in Newborn Portraiture
Specialized Ottawa Gatineau Newborn Photography
Choosing to Specialize, Why?
Choosing to specialize in newborn portraiture was one of the best decisions I have made in my career. I absolutely LOVE taking the time to intricately pose little new born babies into delicate positions to highlight their infinitely tiny beauties and to showcase how small they really are in the beginning. Yes, despite the frequent golden showers and poop explosions, I love my job. If you have a choice, I always recommend doing what you love. Sure for the first little white my gourmet frappa-magic-lattes turned into home-brewed tea, and my fancy restaurant dinners turned into macaroni and cheese with veggies (President’s Choice White Cheddar Mac&Cheese is THE BEST by the way!), but it meant I got to do only what I love. Of course I enjoyed photographing Families, Children, High School Seniors, my Glamour Moms, or Weddings & Engagements, but it wasn’t something that made me feel entirely creative. Cutting out all the ‘fluff’ meant I could focus on what I truly enjoyed, and offer a much better service and art to my clients. After all, the art I create is for them, I just happen to love doing it. Trust me when I say a teary-eyed mom while she is viewing the images I’ve created of her little one, makes all the ‘messes’, sweatiness, and crying absolutely worth it. That’s also why I decided to get into birth photography; so I can provide mothers and families with precious memories that they would otherwise miss out on. I have begun my journey to specialize in birth photography as well. And that means portfolio building, which means discounts for YOU!! Interested?

What does this mean for maternity sessions? Do you just do newborns now? What about our 3-12 months portraits? I don’t really want to have to hire 2 photographers for maternity and newborn..
Maternity sessions are hand-in-hand with newborn sessions, as are the 3 months to 12 months birthday images. In fact, there is now a fabulous option for early bookings to get a FREE mini maternity portrait session with their studio newborn photography session. The services currently offered by Gatineau Newborn Photography are, in chronological order: Maternity Portraits, Birth Stories, Newborn Portraiture, Baby Milestones (3-12 months), and the family photos within those sessions.
What does this mean for those of us who really loved your family and children work?
I do still photograph family portraits and children images within the maternity and newborn sessions, and invite newborn clients to return for their update milestone images throughout baby’s first year, also capturing the entire family. Returning clients are also welcomed afterwards for some updated family portraits for holiday cards.
For new clients who wish to capture Family, Child, and Engagement portraits & Wedding coverage, please visit our partner site over at Stephanie’s Photographs, and they are happy to schedule your session(s).
