At LilyBell Studios your baby is in great hands, the hands of an artist and a mother
Newborns are very tiny & very sensitive little people. They only stay this tiny for a very short period & it is important to capture their innocence & beauty at this stage. It is almost a tragedy to not capture your baby at this stage as it doesn’t last very long & is a very meaningful time in your life
It takes a lot of skill & know how to get them cozy in those adorable poses we all know & love. I have had two premature babies myself and have been photographing & handling newborns for a few years now. Newborn Photography is a true art form and it takes a lot of experience & proper teaching to get it just right. I personally have spent endless hours practicing & learning how to properly photograph your newborn and not only do I love capturing your baby's very important milestone but I also appreciate being the one chosen to do so. I take great pride in my work & getting to know & growing with my clients.
I have a huge selection of props to suit your style and I work with you to get the perfect wall art to suit your room or your home. Once a Session is Booked I will send you a questionnaire to find out more about you & your family and I go from there. I customize my sessions to suit each family & each baby. A Session is a lot more than just taking pictures, it is an experience, an entire memory in itself.
My prop Collection includes baskets, blankets, fur, hats, a big nest, a boat ,a mini bed, (or two),you name it I probably have it. I ask that you bring anything you feel would look good in your baby images as well as meaningful items
Newborn Sessions $200
During The Session I will work with your baby to get him or her in a cuddly position. I do my best to keep the flow so changing positions is as simple as possible as to not disturb the little one. They ultimately run the show and I work around their schedule.I will take mini breaks for mom to feed and sooth as I set up a new scene.The average newborn session runs about 3 hours (give or take).I will get as many poses as I possibly can and I try to change the scene at least once to get different looks to cherish for a lifetime.If baby allows I will do more. I ask that breastfeeding mothers stay away from any spicy or gassy foods for a few days prior to the session.

Newborns & Family $250
This Session is just like the Newborn Session with the inclusion of Mom, Dad & Beloved Siblings. I will do my best to get baby with each family member, in a way that shows the excitement, & Love, that each member has with the new baby. I will do my best get mom & Dad holding the baby together & then with the other Children.
These Sessions May take some time depending on the size of the family. Please be sure not to be rushed on the day of the session. A Basic Newborn session can last up to 3 hours ,so Family Sessions May take a bit longer. I will give you information on what to bring & what to wear prior to your session with me. I ask that you hold off on Feeding Baby until right before the session. You may feed baby a little prior to keep him or her happy until you get to the studio. Snacks are sometimes provided by me but I ask that you bring some for the children if they are picky or have allergies.

Maternity & Newborn Session $300
Beautiful Images of you on your journey to motherhood. You save money and give yourself a gift that will keep giving over the years. I find that my children love to see images of themselves while they were in my belly.
I like my mother’s to come to me in their 7th month. I find that we feel not only better but we look better in our 7th month. I will happily include dad & any siblings in your maternity shoot. A new baby is exciting to everyone!
