Miss C’s Newborn Portrait Photos from Waltham MA
Today we are talking about Miss C! She came from Waltham MA with her mama and daddy for her newborn photos. Newborn portrait session bookings all follow the same trajectory, so to speak. Parents reach out to me during their pregnancy (generally in the second trimester) to get booked in. I pencil in their due date leaving some wiggle room for if the baby comes early or late. Then, I just wait until I hear back from mom and dad saying that the little one has been born. Typically newborn photos are taken between 6-16 days. However every baby and every family is different, which can sometime mean a change in plans–and that’s okay!
If you’re currently expecting and due this summer, send me an email to begin the process of booking your newborn photos! And in the meantime, read more about what goes on during your Waltham area newborn photo session with a professional newborn photographer.

Including Props in Your Baby’s Portrait Session
If you’ve ever been to my studio, or if you’ve been around my social media pages, you know I love a good prop. Especially for Waltham area newborn portrait sessions. And I have a huge selection in my studio for parents to choose from. I have everything including simple baskets and bowls for baby to snuggle safely inside. I also have more detailed props to fit any style and theme. Many of these props are from Etsy, if you’re looking for some of your own. But some of the best props are the ones that parents bring along with them to their newborn portrait session.
Prior to these Waltham newborn photos, like every newborn portrait session, I sent a questionnaire for mom and dad to fill out about their priorities and style preferences. Mama mentioned that dad wanted to bring his guitar for Miss C’s photos. I was thrilled to include the guitar in these photos. How adorable is Miss C curled up and sleeping on top of the guitar? It could totally be an album cover!
