This session is a great fit for you if:
The 'bean bag mini' is a classic, timeless, and breathtaking set of images showcasing the brand new, curly nature of a recently arrived cherub. There are 6 main newborn poses in the world of fine art baby portraiture and this session showcases poses such as froggy pose, the chin in hands pose, tooshie or bum up, side sleeper, womb, forward facing, and cradle. This is a 'mini' session because it is a shorter session with less setups. If you'd like just a handful of images, this is the perfect fit for you. There is the option to add parent, sibling, or family images for $150, but there is no obligation to do so.
This session is designed for parents wanting a smaller set of photos showcasing all things pure newborn. If you prefer naked bean bag posing to wrapped images, than this is great option for you.
If you would like more variety and a larger set of images, I recommend considering the 'petite' or 'full' session, which is listed on the pricing guide.
A backdrop color of your choice is provided along with accessories to style baby, such as handcrafted headbands, seen below. In this particular session, this darling baby girl visited the studio at 7 days new. Her parents requested neutrals such as a soft peach with also accents of cream and ivory. The poses seen below are 'froggy', in which baby appears to be holding up their head, timber, cradle, bum up, also known as the tooshie pose, womb, which is sometimes also called taco, followed by side sleeper, and then even a macro image of baby's profile.
This sweet cherub baby girl visited the studio when she was just over 6 days fresh. She weighs 6 pounds and has the most darling head full of gorgeous brown hair! She slept beautifully for me. Her parents asked for a very girly and feminine session featuring lilac, lavender, and muted purple colors to compliment her skin tone. For this session, she is posed in taco, back to sleep, bum up, froggy, and side sleeper. There are precious macro images, too, of her face, in which you may see the adorable features like her button nose, lips, eyelashes, and chubby little cheeks!

Working with brand new, earth-side cherubs is an absolute dream! The best time to schedule your little one's posed newborn session is when they're around 6-9 days new. This is when they're most flexible and sleepy. Because your darling baby boy (or girl!) has spent 9 months growing in the womb, this posing reflects how sweet & curly a newly arrived bundle of joy is. This little fella, featured here, is my son, Jack, who was born almost two weeks late! I photographed his session at 5 days new.
Below you can see the specific name of each pose and how dreamy it is!
Womb AKA Taco
Back to sleep aka cradle

I would love to work with you and photograph your newest addition! Most mothers to be book their newborn session in the second trimester, typically after they've had their 20 week ultrasound. However, even if you're in the third trimester, or baby is already born, I still encourage you to inquire because sometimes last minute appointments open up or a baby comes early, which means an extra slot is available.
