What to expect during a Newborn Session

If he poops on her stuff I’m going to be mortified, I heard as I tied my apron.  I quickly whipped around and laughed – listen, it happens.  What?  Shit.  We all stopped for a second and then I said, why do you think I wear this apron?  A roar of laugher exploded then as the baby stirred hushed laughter filled the room.  It’s not glamour but its happens.  That is a teeny tiny part of a newborn session and the rest is cuteness and magic.

Adorable newborn session, simple process

At Appletini Photography, we capture beautiful images while making the process carefree for you and your family.  You take care of the feedings, and we will create, capture, and print the adorable moments. We would love to work with you to style and create images that will be hanging in your home for years to come.

The Baby Boutique or Your Home

Newborn sessions take place at the Baby Boutique, located in Morrisville, PA. It’s a comfortable studio where mom and dad can relax, grab a cup of coffee, take a nap (if you need it), and let us take care of the rest! In this relaxed environment, we take our time creating the perfect images to celebrate your new bundle of joy!

Not ready to leave the house yet? No problem, we can pack it all up and bring the newborn session to you! Local to Bucks County? We will travel up to 20 miles (from Morrisville, PA) for a cute baby! With a newborn mini-studio that easily sets up in your living room, we will also use your home as one of the backdrop’s for your session, capturing your new addition surrounded by the familiarity of your own home. Let’s show off the nursery, get snuggly in the bed, or lounge around in the den.

Newborn sessions are recommended within the first 14 days of birth for those sleepy, dreamy poses, but they can occur at any time in the first 4 months.

During the Session
Our newborn session consists of three different segments: newborn poses, prop shots, and family portraits. Within these individual segments, we include a variety of positions and backdrops.

Newborn Session, Yardley PAFamily Portraits
Your new addition brings such joy, and we love photographing that emotion. Therefore, we take a variety of pictures with your newborn and the special people in his or her life. Feel free to include up to six people to have their picture taken. This typically includes mom, dad, big brothers, and big sisters, but can also include grandparents, favorite aunts, godparents, and cousins. If you would like to include more than six people, each additional person is $15.

Newborn Session, Bucks County, PANewborn Poses
For the newborn poses, we use a portrait beanbag covered with various blankets to create the perfect backdrop. Once the infant is comfortable, we position him or her into different poses, capturing adorable, close-up images. We have a wide variety of blankets, outfits, and other accessories that we use, but feel free to include your own hats, bowties, headbands, baby blankets, toys, or jewelry. I cannot promise that we will get to use everything we have but we will certainly try!

Newborn Session, Newtown, PAProp Shots
We always include at least one prop concept of our own, but we also love to include props that are special to the family, such as trunks, baskets, or stuffed animals, as long as they allow us to safely take the picture.
Sessions typically yield 30-40 images.  Booking is easy!  We’ll have a quick consultation, talk styling, review everything, answer questions and then put your due date on our books.  Once your child arrives you can reach us email, phone or text and we’ll send back possible dates and start pulling props!



Let’s chat! Have any questions or concerns? We are here to help answer your questions or ease your mind. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us at (267)400-0010 or Tiff at Appletini Photography dot com. Our office hours are listed here.
