Classic Newborn portraits in our saratoga springs portrait studio

Lately I’ve been starting all of our newborn sessions off with UNPOSED portraits of the baby in a simple white onesie. When the family arrives we chat, gently take the baby from the carseat, and place the baby on our posing beanbag in the onesie they arrived in for a few captures of them just being themselves. I love these moments of unposed perfection, and the sweet little details that we are able to capture! Even more, I adore when the family joins in.

Then we swaddle the baby up for some gorgeous family portraits.

Why the swaddle? Newborns are accustomed to being tucked in nice & snug (after all, they just spent nine months curled up in a tiny little space!). The swaddle helps to keep them calm & content, and it also reduces their startle reflex. Usually the babies fall right to sleep and we’re able to move them around and capture a variety of portraits before slowly working their limbs out of the swaddle and carefully moving them into different positions.

These are some of my FAVORITE family portraits. Isn’t baby Isla just the cutest? Her little smile melts my heart!

Clearly baby sister gets her cuteness from her big brother! He did such an amazing job and I love these sibling portraits that we captured during their session.
