Newborn Photography

After a long wait, your precious miracle is finally here. Capture the magic and the memories with a professional newborn photography session by Yanka Photo. My years of experience as a professional photographer and a mother ensure a great experience for you and your little one. Our studio provides the special comfort, warmth, and ambiance required to make your little star shine.

We find it best to setup a session within the first week of birth, to get the greatest variety of poses and those magical moments you’ll find yourself returning to time and again for years to come.

Our newborn packages start at $350. Contact us today for a free phone consultation to prepare and schedule your newborn session.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How soon after birth should we schedule our Newborn session?

The first week after birth provides the best chance of a comfortable and successful session.

  1. What should we bring to the Newborn session?

Extra food supplies are good to have on hand, along with a pacifier. Bring extra diapers and a couple of blankets in case of any accidents during our shoot. We’ll take care of the rest with our collection of props and accessories.

  1. Will you have props, toys, wraps, decorations, and wardrobe items?

We have a collection of props and accessories to keep our models entertained. In our Newborn sessions, “natural beauty” is the main idea. We will be using props to create unique poses and setups, however we tend to minimize the use of accessories in our Newborn sessions.

  1. Can I bring older siblings to take part in a Newborn session?

We welcome all your family members to take part in the session. During our pre-session consultation, we will discuss different options for including additional subjects in our session. Typically, our session would have to be extended and a small add-on fee will be applied.

  1. How many portraits will I receive with the Newborn session?

Each package we offer provides a variety of options for both printed and digital-only images. We will work with you to find the package that suits you best and provides the maximum value for your investment.

  1. Will I have full print rights?

Print rights are extended in the majority of our packages. We will work together to find the package that offers the best value for the right mix of printed and digital images.

  1. Will my baby get cold or uncomfortable during the session?

Our private studio offers a heated space and an additional mobile heater to provide extra comfort to your baby during our session. We make sure every child is happy and comfortable throughout the experience.

  1. Will you travel to my home for a newborn/lifestyle session?

I am happy to travel within a 40-mile radius of our Leesburg, Virginia studio. A travel fee will be required. We will work with you to determine the best option for your child’s session. Keep in mind that our studio equipment and lighting setup provides the best chance of a successful session and the results you’ll enjoy for years to come.

  1. What happens if the baby cries or doesn’t sleep during the session?

Our Newborn Sessions are scheduled for a minimum of 90 mins to allow for any fussiness from our uncooperative models to be resolved. If all efforts fail, we can extend our session for a nominal fee to give your little one another chance at photo modeling.

  1. Is your studio comfortable for the baby and the family?

We have plenty of room for the whole family, whether they’re participating in the session or simply tagging along. Dads and older siblings can entertain themselves with our Smart TVs and complimentary wifi access, while we focus our attention on getting the best images in the studio.
