NEWBORN SESSIONS

Posed sessions at the studio

This is the most popular newborn photography among parents. The ideal timing for studio sessions is between first 4-12 days of life. An average studio session takes between 2-3 hours. Clients have access to a variety of different props, wraps and headbands for the baby.

Our pet and smoke free studio is heated and equipped for maximum comfort of the baby and parents. Just relax and have your coffee when your precious little baby is posing for lifelong remembered precious images.

Lifestyle session in your home

For lifestyle sessions, we come to your place to capture the magical moments in your everyday life with the new addition to your family. Your baby doesn’t have to be certain days old. We capture the baby in everyday life under natural light. In own home, own clothing during everyday activities, such as feeding, sleeping, bathing, in parents’ arms or on siblings’ laps…

Documentary session at the hospital

Documentary sessions are to capture the very first day of life, the parents emotions, the very first moments of the baby including first cry, first bath, first feeding , with close up photos in color and black & white.

It’s best to book your session weeks or months before to secure your spot. Even though you cannot know the exact day of baby’s birth day, it can be scheduled tentatively and changed according to the baby’s birthday. Timing is arranged to make sure your newborn session occurs between 4-12 days.

Within a week following your session, you receive a gallery of soft edited images. Then you choose your images that is included in your session and order the ones you would like to have additionally. Within a week from your selection, you receive your fully edited high resolution digital images in an online gallery where you can download for yourself and share with your loved ones.

Additional digital images that are not included in your package are $35/each. You can order them online from your private gallery.

By purchasing digital images, you receive a print release which grants you the right to print them at any lab you choose as well as sharing them online.

Do you take outdoor newborn photos?

Yes, during summer months, when temperatures are above 25 degree celcius, we love to do outdoor sessions with your little ones. We usually meet you at a park with some baskets and wraps and an umbrella. Timewise, we prefer to book late afternoon/early evening hours for more gentle sun light for baby’s skin.

Do you do posed newborn sessions?

Yes, posed newborn sessions are done here at Alpina studio. At the studio sessions, you have access to a wide variety of props and wraps for new born girls and boys.

Do you provide lifestyle newborn sessions?

Yes, if you prefer a more casual, lifestyle session with natural light, we do it at your home. No studio lights or props are used in these sessions, as they are supposed to capture the everyday life of baby in his/her own environment.

Do you provide newborn photo shoot at the hospital?

Yes, if you book your session in advance I can take documentary style photos of your newborn baby, capturing candid moments with the family and detailed portraits of the baby at any Calgary hospital.

When is the best time for newborn photos?

Ideal time for newborn photos is between 4 and 12 days from birth. If you past this period, it’s never too late. I photograph every stage of babies and children.

How to prepare and what to bring for our newborn session?

You can feed your baby right before coming to your session to make the best use out of session. If your baby has a dry, flaky skin, you can apply skin lotion. Clipping baby’s nails before coming to the photo session is recommended. Baby hands are the most favourite parts to capture in newborn photos. If your baby has hair, you can bring your baby hair brush with you. Don’t forget to bring lots of diapers and formula if your baby is not breastfeeding.

Can we bring our own props and items for the photos?

We have plenty of props and wraps here, but you are more than welcome to bring your own items if you have a special item that has a sentimental value for you.

Can we choose our setting or color scheme for the newborn photos?

You are welcome to communicate your color and setting preferences if you have a specific thing on your mind. We would be happy to help you get the closest look within our prop collection.

“We recently welcomed our baby girl and Pinar did the most amazing job with our newborn photos! First off, Pinar is wonderful at handling newborn babies and did such a great job keeping our daughter calm and relaxed during the photos. I took as many feeding/ diaper breaks as I needed and I never felt rushed during the session. Most important, our photos turned out so beautiful and precious and there were so many props/bows/swaddles to choose from. Highly recommend Alpina Photography! Such a lovely person and talented photographer.”

Diana Dorothy

“Pinar was an absolute pleasure to work with! We did both a session at her home studio and a session at our home. She had her studio set up perfectly for a newborn session – so warm and cozy! She also has so many props for getting some really great shots. Her patience with our 3 year old was greatly appreciated! Definitely will be booking future sessions with Pinar :)”

Jennifer Massina

“Pinar is passionate about what she does. The photos that she took of our little one will serve as incredible memories for years to come.”
