Our signature Newborn Session captures those first few days of your baby’s life in a very special and unique way. We understand and appreciate the fleeting nature of newborn photos, so we make it our mission to preserve these special moments for your family. Lil’ One Photography is proud to provide an unforgettable, customized newborn experience that you’ll be proud to display in high-end wall art around your home or flip through the luxurious pages of your baby’s first personalized and designed with love heirloom album. This will be your baby’s favourite activity to do one day. Reminisce how excited you were in anticipation of their arrival by capturing your journey before as well as after you embark on this grand journey as a parent.

Lil’ one’s style
Lil’ One’s style of newborn photography is extremely creative and fine art based, we couple our artistic style with soft palettes, elegant textiles, and detailed one-of-a-kind set-ups. Our style of newborn sessions sets us apart from other studios due to the amount of detail and love that we put into each and every frame! There’s just something about soft colours, luxurious wraps, and lil’ toes all coming together to create beautiful memories that will be preserved and cherished forever. Just take a look at our gallery below and you’ll see what we mean. You will find it impossible not to fall in love 😉
We recommend capturing newborn portraits in the first two weeks of the baby’s life, when your baby is very sleepy and moldable. This is the best time to capture those precious curled-up poses. While beautiful images can be captured at any stage, and we do work with newborns up to six weeks in age, keep in mind that once a baby is beyond those first 14 days those sleepy, curled poses are more difficult to get.
All newborn sessions are tailored specifically to you and your baby, and include a one-on-one phone consultation . We will discuss ideas on style, colours, props and wardrobe, and I will share with you how your customized photo shoot will all come together.
Your Newborn Session
In your newborn session I take the time to capture a variety of shots. With wrapped shots, I use only the softest, most luxurious fabrics on your new lil’ bundle. Naked baby shots are always a favourite and I handpick various accessories to add more variety. We also have a huge variety of props in the studio that I like to add based on the parents’ hobbies and interests, and we can’t forget taking shots with mom and dad as well. Other family members* such as siblings can be added as well and the session is split into two portions to better accommodate your family.
A Newborn session is anywhere between 3-4 hours. There is absolutely no rush and I always make sure to give clients more than enough time to get ready. When you arrive at the studio, you will be greeted by a warm temperature and white noise machine. After you are settled and the baby is fed, they are cuddled until they are in a sleepy, picture-taking mode. And that’s when the magic begins taking place.
*one sibling is included in the Session Fee; additional family members/siblings can be added at an additional cost
