Miami Newborn Photography
The first days of life are the shortest and most wonderful. Ensure those memories of your newborn baby are captured for a lifetime.
The birth of a child marks a defining moment in your life.
From this day forward, everything changes.
You have a new reason for living.
You have a new reason to love.
And just weeks from now, your little one
will no longer fit so tiny in your arms.
They are only this little for just a moment in time.
These are your moments…
with a newborn portrait session, you can hold on to them forever.
The best time to photograph your newborn is around 7 – 10 days old. As this stage, the baby sleeps a lot and is most receptive to positioning. The session is very relaxed, usually lasting about three hours, allowing time for feeding and breaks.
If you would like to book a newborn photography session, please call us during your pregnancy so that we can make some room in our schedule around your due date. The exact date of your session will be determined after your baby is born so that we can make sure to have your session during the 7 – 10 day window.

WHAT SHOULD BABY WEAR?
Newborns photograph best without any clothes at all or just a simple wrap. We love to photograph newborns swaddled in blankets with lots of texture and snuggled up tight in buckets and baskets, so if you have a special blanket or two bring them. We have an extensive collection of newborn hats, wraps, bows and headbands that coordinate beautifully with our blankets and props that we will use to stylize your images. You are welcome to bring any hats or props that you would like to have the baby photographed in. We encourages our clients to bring special, personal items which make the session and images especially meaningful.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY NEWBORN SESSION?
We recommend that you bring baby to the session well rested and plan to feed baby as soon as you arrive. Sleepy babies photograph perfectly, so we will ask you to undress and swaddle baby before the feeding so as to not disturb them by undressing them after the feeding. We take several breaks for feeding baby during the session to ensure that baby is happy and has a full tummy. We ask that you not be too concerned with scheduled feedings during the session and that you feed baby on demand or when they get a bit fussy to ensure their comfort and a smooth session.
CAN I BE PHOTOGRAPHED WITH MY BABY?
Most certainly! We wouldn’t have it any other way. We love to capture the emotion of those special first days with your new little one and believe that there is no greater image than a new mommy or daddy cuddling with and admiring their newborn child. Skin on skin images are a unique way to capture the purity of these relationships, but we also ask parents to bring a neutral colored shirt so that they may serve as a backdrop for baby for some of the images.
CAN SIBLINGS BE PHOTOGRAPHED WITH MY BABY?
Yes siblings are encouraged to be photographed with the baby! We usually do the sibling images first, and then ask that you bring a grandparent or babysitter along to take them home once their portion of the session is completed. It’s a lot to expect toddlers and older siblings to play quietly for the remainder of the session.Contact Imagenes Rivera for more information and unreal newborn portraits!
