Welcome Baby Charlie | Flemington, New Jersey Newborn Session

Most often, it is a new mother who contacts me about scheduling a newborn session.  From our first conversation during our consultation call, I knew that Charlie’s Mommy, Alyse, and I were a great fit.  I have built my business on the premise of serving moms well.  I want new mamas (and experienced mamas) to feel relaxed, pampered, and cared for during their entire portrait process.  Alyse stopped by the studio a few days before her session for a wardrobe styling appointment.  I helped Alyse choose this beautiful dress for her session, and we planned the color scheme for the rest of Charlie’s newborn photos.  A few days later, Alyse came into Charlie’s session feeling relaxed, knowing that all of the little details were covered.

Following their newborn session, Alyse and Chris returned to the studio for their ordering appointment.  I helped them by designing amazing wall art and a GORGEOUS heirloom album.  These physical print products will be loved and passed down for generations.  Baby Charlie will see exactly how much he was already loved in these early days of his life.

Charlie’s parents requested a session with neutral colors of white, cream, and gray…It is so classic and timeless, and will fit into their home decor perfectly.  (Yes, I help guide my clients by considering colors in your home when planning your session!)

Wondering how Alyse felt about her newborn session experience?  Here’s her testimonial:

“Megan was absolutely wonderful to work with – she made the entire process super easy and really enjoyable. She responded really quickly every time I contacted her and answered all of my questions. Her studio is absolutely adorable – she has every hat, wrap, prop, etc. in every color you could ever imagine! Her space was clean and comfortable. She ensures the colors you pick match the décor in your home, which just shows that she goes the extra mile to really personalize your experience. I even loved that she had outfits for me – being only 3 weeks postpartum, the last thing I wanted was to find an outfit to wear, but Megan had that covered too! She even recommended what colors for my husband to wear so everything matched really nicely. On the day of the photo shoot she really took over and gave Mom and Dad some time to relax and enjoy watching our little man take the most adorable pictures. She was super calm and really patient to make sure we got the right shots. And she was wonderful with our son, making him feel comfortable and loved. When it came time to picking out the pictures, all of them were so beautiful it was so hard to choose which ones we loved the most. Megan is really wonderful and makes the experience personal, easy, and professional, and I highly recommend for any Mom (and Dad)! Thank you Megan!!”

Are you expecting a baby and interested in booking a newborn session?  My fall and winter calendar is filling up, so please don’t delay.  I encourage parents to book their baby’s newborn session before giving birth.  I provide a temporary session date on my calendar, and then we adjust once your baby is born.
