Meet Asa, This little guy was just so calm for his almost newborn session . He was 1 month old and just so adorable. He loved to be swaddled and fell asleep but once the swaddle came off he was awake again but just looking around. I did get a few images of him sound asleep. What a handsome little man with that full head of hair! Enjoy!

Birth Photography| Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photography

I first met Meg at Panera to discuss my idea of birth photography and newborn photography . We hit it off and she signed the contract right there. We chatted via email a few times and discussed the type of birth photography she envisioned. Meg was scheduled to be induced on the 10th of April. So, being on call was much easier since I knew what day I would be photographing her birth. She was admitted into the hospital around 7 a.m., she was 4 cm. and they broke her water. I figured since it was a induction this would take a while even though this was her second pregnancy. Needless to say she was a rock star and delivered her baby only 3.5 hrs after being admitted into the hospital. I can share a few great images from the birth.

I look forward to photographing little W. next week for his posed newborn photography session.

Newborn K. | Richmond, VA| Family & Newborn Photographer| Jacki G. Photography

Meet newborn Kerrigan. He is a beautiful little guy and slept like a champ for his newborn session. He made the cutest little faces while he slept!   We used a new blue backdrop and wire bed for his session.

Newborn Veronica| Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photographer| Jacki G. Photography

This little sleeping beauty is Veronica and she is brand new around here!  She was such a great sleeper for her session and then when it came time to take the last few photos, she woke up but gave me the sweetest smile.  Her doggy brother was so sweet with her.

Welcome to the world C.| Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photography| Jacki G. Photography

Making her big debut on the blog today is precious newborn baby Cecilia photographed by yours truly, ) She is the sweetest little baby and really melted my heart during the entire session.  Her big brother did amazing with her who I also got to photograph when he was a newborn too, so it was great to see him now playing the role of big brother!  Big Brother was super excited to hold his new baby sister and have his picture taken as well.  I wouldn’t be surprised if baby Cecilia grows up to be a model- she just looked so cute in everything we put her in and every pose we placed her in.

Baby Isabelle| Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photographer| Jacki G. Photography

Meet sweet baby Isabelle. This little lady was a doll. She was as beautiful as could be and is already so loved and adored by her beautiful parents. For Isabelle’s newborn photography session we used lots of neutrals and grey.

What should Parents & Siblings wear| Jacki G. Photography | Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photographer

Booking your baby's first professional portraits is truly exciting! You've waited months to meet the baby and have dreamed of holding them in your arms! Now that you've selected your photographer and are gearing up for a great session, you may be a little unsure what to wear to your newborn session. Have no fear! As a professional newborn photographer plus mom (I mean, I DO have three children !) I know how important these images are to you. You'll treasure them forever. You would like to look and feel your best. I'm here to guide you and provide an amazing, laid back experience for you new parents.

Mom & Dad : simplicity is key

First and foremost, moms should wear something that makes them feel beautiful and comfortable (after all.. you just had a little one!).   The best advice really is to keep it simple.  The best way to do this is by wearing a simple, solid-colored top.  Light colored tops in creams, light grays, and light pastels help in keeping the focus on your expression and the moment.  Mom can wear a long sleeve, or no sleeves. I prefer Dads to wear long sleeves but for one picture I would need Dad to wear a short sleeve shirt or no shirt.

Siblings: comfort is king

No matter how old the sibling is, the main goal is to have them comfortable with photos with their baby sibling.  It’s especially important because some of the sibling shots involve them laying down on a blanket with the baby.  Again, try to coordinate colors with the parents.  A light or cream-colored top on a sibling creates an angelic and sweet look.

The sibling portion always makes mom's heart soar! This is a very popular request for sessions and we set aside an additional 30 minutes for these setups. I like to pose the older sibling on their back while the eldest child holds the new baby. This is a safe way for them to interact without worrying if the baby will be dropped. A neutral colored flokati, such as cream or white, is a really pretty option here. Little ones look super precious in classic, natural attire such as dark wash blue jeans, perhaps even khaki pants, and then a simple top in a lighter color, such as beige, cream, white, or tan.

Families: be you

Each family is unique and different.  These tips are here to help decide what to wear for your baby photoshoot.  Though neutrals and light colors are recommended… if you love color, don’t be afraid to rock it! But nothing neon.  If you are still unsure, let me know… I’m here to help you along each step of the way!

Newborn Eva was so cuddly for her newborn session.  I love that I have the flexibility to do both in-home sessions and studio sessions.  Most of my clients choose the in-home session, which is no extra charge to travel to my clients home.  My studio is located in Short Pump, VA

I first worked with Mercedes and Ryan for their first maternity session and newborn session with their first daughter. I was thrilled to hear from Mercedes again letting me know she was pregnant with her second child, a baby girl. They loved their experience with us and wanted to work with us again for her new daughters session. I absolutely love seeing my clients throughout the years for different sessions as their family and children grow.

Since Mercedes had worked with us previously, she knew exactly what to expect from our time together.

Baby A. was a great sleeper and BIG sister M. was only 17 months old but made my job look easy photographing them both.

Newborns are just so squishy and warm and basically perfect. Now that my little ones are much older I soak up these sessions and it helps me remember how quickly time flies. He was a complete champ and slept the whole time, and here are the beautiful results!

Welcome to the world baby A. | Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA 23233| Family & Newborn Photographer

Sharing this adorable newborn and family session.   I often get questions if family pictures are included in a newborn session.  My Deluxe Newborn session is ideal for a few parent poses/lifestyle and sibling portraits.   Nothing is sweeter than those smiles coming out when looking down at a new baby.  Excited to share  just a handful of these images.
