I specialize in newborn portraiture, creating beautiful art pieces from images of your tiny, sweet newborn. Heather Blair Photography also offers Maternity sessions, and I love to capture babies through their first year. Mini sessions are offered twice a year, in Spring/Summer and in the fall for Family and Children.
Newborn sessions are done within the first 10 days of your baby’s life. Please schedule your session while you are pregnant to ensure a spot in our books. We are taking a very limited number of newborns per month. Only four newborn sessions will be scheduled each month based on your due date. Your session will take place in my studio in downtown Mechanicsburg. A typical session can last up to three hours, as I take my time to make sure we get the images that we want. We have tons of props and I am always on the lookout for more. At Heather Blair Photography, we like to personalize each session based on your baby’s nursery theme colors and any special hobbies or interests. I take pride in creating unique portraits of your newborn!
Maternity sessions are scheduled around 30-32 weeks gestation. This is the best time, as your belly is nice and round, yet you aren’t too uncomfortable (yet). Your maternity session will consist of shots of the mama-to-be along with any other children and significant other. They will either be done in the privacy of our studio or in a local park. I have some nice, pretty secluded spots we can go to. It is best to book well in advance as my schedule fills up quickly. These are held as all inclusive sessions, where your session fee will include the session, prints and digital files. We love capturing the beautiful glow of expectant motherhood.
The best times to capture your baby throughout their first year are the newborn stage, when they are sitting up at around six months and then again at their first birthday. We absolutely adore capturing these major milestones in your baby’s first year of life! At about six months old, your baby is full of personality. They are sitting up well, and love to explore…….what an amazing time to capture them.
At your baby’s one year session, we start off by capturing the cuteness and personality in his or her favorite outfit. Then we bring out baby’s custom designed cake (created by Sweetreats and included in your session) and let the fun begin! My cake smashing sessions are a blast! You can sit back and watch as I capture the messy fun your baby will have. What a memory to embrace! These sessions are created and designed around you, they are custom and unique. I love creating themed/stylized themes for your baby!
