Newborn Sessions

What to Expect:

  • Scheduling: Reach out to us to book a session well in advance. Our newborn session for babies in their first 2-3 weeks, this time frame is key to newborn photography, as the baby sleeps more deeply during these early days. We also have a different style session for babies up to 4 months old, be sure to let us know as we can accommodate for different posing and incorporate family for these sessions.
  • Consultation: Before the session, we’ll have a phone consultation to get to know your family, discuss your vision, and plan out the session details. This helps us tailor the experience to reflect your family’s unique personality. 
  • Date : We will book your session for an estimated 10 days after the due date and once baby arrives you can reshedule as needed.
  • Time: Be prepared for the session to last 1-2 hours. Bring baby ready for a feeding as soon as you get to the studio, this will ensure that baby naps with a happy full tummy.  We provide a comfortable and calm environment for your baby, so there’s plenty of time for feeding, soothing, and capturing those adorable shots.
  • Outfits: We will provide a selection of outfits, wraps, blankets, and hats to complement your baby’s look. If there’s a certain outfit or prop you’d like to incorporate be sure to let us know, so we can tailor the look and scene to incorporate it.
  • Temperature: We maintain a cozy and warm environment for your newborn’s comfort. Dress comfortably yourself, as the studio will be quite warm to keep your baby content.
  • Feeding: Newborns often feed frequently, so it’s a good idea to have extra milk or formula on hand.

We maintain a strict adherence to safety protocols, using gentle techniques and professional equipment to capture those precious moments without compromising your baby’s safety and comfort.

Meet The Studio Photographer

Hi, I’m Sarah, co-owner of Bells & Whistles Photography and former wedding photographer of 8 years, now dedicating my work to studio photography. I’m thrilled to announce the opening of our in-home studio, based in Pembroke Pines, Florida. Rooted in my deep passion for capturing the cherished connections of family, and the wonder of childhood, this studio serves as a sanctuary of creativity, wonderment, and timeless elegance.

With a steadfast dedication to preserving fleeting moments, I find solace in documenting narratives that evoke emotion and contemplation. The beauty of family photography, the unforgettable memories of newborns, and the anticipation of maternity moments hold a special place in my heart. 

Yet, my studio is a canvas that extends far beyond the earthbound realm. The allure of underwater photography has been a steadfast muse throughout my life. Within the intimate embrace of our very own pool, I’ve discovered the unique ability to capture the serenity of underwater movements.

In my quest to capture the essence of each child’s unique talents and personality, I create settings that mirror their individuality. With carefully chosen backdrops and props, I endeavor to craft a visual narrative that resonates with their innate brilliance.My journey into the world of photography began over 15 years ago, intertwined with the travels of my now husband, Chris. These shared experiences laid the foundation for my creative exploration, kindling a love for storytelling through imagery, and underwater exploration that continues to burn brightly today.

Whether your heart resonates with the art of photography, the allure of visual storytelling, the precious moments of family connections, or the enchantment of childhood’s wonders, I extend a heartfelt invitation to join me on this captivating journey. Here’s to the unfolding of horizons and the art of encapsulating moments that echo with depth and meaning.

With warm regards,

Sarah

Client Reviews

“I had very high expectations for photos of my newborn baby girl and Sarah hit it out of the park!! She took such adorable and beautiful photos it was impossible to pick which ones to print because I loved them all! She is also a baby whisperer – my baby didn’t cry once because she handled her in such a delicate way (she’s an experienced mom of 2 herself!). Needless to say, we will 100% be back for her 1 year old smash cake photo shoot!! Thanks, Sarah!!

THE ABSOLUTE BEST! Chris and his team was the best decision we made. They are super talented professionals who pay close attention to detail, are amazing to work with, and have forever left a beautiful mark in our lives. Their work is impressive and carefully crafted. Our highlight video was absolutely perfect – I cried watching it – and I didn’t even cry at my wedding! Their work is so moving! We get to relive the wedding every time we watch it. Needless to say, we were extremely impressed with their videography and photography. Make sure to hire both services!
But let me tell you what also matters: Chris’ creativity & adaptability. This team isn’t just professional, on time, and caring. But they are smart and quickly change a chaotic situation into something that works for everyone. The day of my wedding, it rained, no, it stormed. Most of the locations for photography were wet and could have derailed the sessions otherwise. However, Chris brought umbrellas for us – and the pictures? So so romantic and beautiful with them. In fact, I dare say I was quite happy it rained – they made sure we got awesome and unique shots by working with the rain and given the rushed circumstances – the little amount of light, the puddles, you name it, THEY made sure it didn’t matter. Everything came together amazingly. WE HAD A BLAST! Taking photos and videos. They give you GREAT direction and have a wonderful eye for incredible and unique shots. We couldn’t be happier. Truly, best decision ever. Also – what a pleasure to work with! They were so responsible and full of knowledge and reassurance. Omg, what else can I say? THEY ARE THE ABSOLUTE BEST. I am grateful for that I was able to work with them – all our family members enjoyed them. Do yourself a favor and get them – worth every single dollar.
