Karen has photographed newborns all around Knoxville, and is experienced and educated in newborn photography and safety. She will never place your baby into an unsafe position. Please note that the type of posing Karen does is timeless - she does not typically use large knit or crocheted outfits, contort your baby into a "frog", use large tutus, etc. Karen will make sure your images are beautiful and classic.
You may choose to do a Fresh 48 Newborn session, in which Karen will come to the hospital (or place of birth) to photograph your baby and family within the first 48 hours of birth! If you're not much into birth photography, Fresh 48 sessions can be a wonderful alternative! These sessions take place Monday through Saturday to accommodate anyone's hospital stay, and sometimes Sunday in special circumstances.
Regular newborn sessions can take place up to 3 weeks for a "lifestyle" session, or up to 2 weeks if you want a few more "posed" shots. We will mix a few posed shots with lots of natural "lifestyle" moments. These sessions will take place in your home, but if you feel your home does not have enough natural light, we can do a lifestyle newborn session in our studio space.
These sessions take place Monday through Thursday, and last about an hour and a half (instead of 3-4 hours), so you can get back to snuggling that sweet babe! Feel free to have any kind of special blankets or props you would like that are special to you! Karen will do what she can to incorporate those into your session!
