Six days young, this brand new little one was tiny and precious.  I kept marveling at his perfect features…they truly were.  He seemed a good sleeper too, so I thought I’d use the latest in my never-ending search for cool newborn props…a beautifully crafted wooden chair.  I love it – and I think he looks downright comfy in it too.  Look at his little smile.  He stayed peaceful and sleepy for the whole session…looking angelic in the different wraps and cocoons, but I just love how he looks in his daddy’s arms in the black and whites below.  And I daresay the last shot would bring a smile to almost anyone’s face.  Take a look and see…

This spring we have some exciting new plans in the works here at Christine DeSavino Photography, and earlier this month we announced the first bloom of the season with our Baby’s First Year Plan.  Well now with our second bloom we have the perfect compliment to a baby package or a newborn session.  In fact it’s the perfect companion to any portrait session that celebrates a special event in the life of a child…

Here at Christine DeSavino Photography we’ve been working hard at putting together some exciting new plans to better serve our clients,
and we’re ready
to start announcing what’s now in bloom…


Blossom One: Baby’s First Year Plan

Many of you who follow my photography know how much I adore newborn sessions….there’s nothing more special to me than capturing the purity of a new little one.  The first few days of an infant’s life are so precious and endearing, but equally remarkable is the baby’s entire first year.  From holding up their head to rolling over, from beginning to crawl to walking and eventually cruising all over the house, a baby will grow more during this first year than any other time in their life.  And it goes by so quickly…

So to commemorate this treasured time, I’ve created a brand new plan that will capture and celebrate each milestone of a baby’s first year.

Here are the details of my Baby Plan:

  • one full newborn session within the first 10 days of birth
  • one full 6-month-old session (or around the time your baby begins to crawl)
  • one full 12-month-old session (or around the time your baby begins to criuse, this is the perfect time for a Cake Smash Session!)
  • optional mini-sessions at 3 & 9 months (or when your baby holds their head up & when your baby begins to walk)
  • optional maternity-mini-session
  • each full session is priced at a discount
  • each full session comes with a $100 complimentary Fine Art Canvas Credit, mini-sessions come with a $50 credit
  • the completed baby plan comes with a $300 complimentary Album Credit
  • over $600 worth of built in savings!

 

And in order to help our plan to grow…

the first 5 people who book my Baby Plan during the month of May will receive:

 

  • 1 free box of Birth Announcement Cards at completion of their Newborn Session
  • 1 free  20×20 Storyboard commemorating each stage of their child’s first year at completion of the baby plan


For full details and pricing, please call me at 917-697-1835 or contact me here.

And keep checking back as there are more buds about to burst here at our studio!

I had the pleasure of meeting these two adorable children not long ago…when it was a little too cold to venture outside.   They were beautiful, and I love the expressions they gave me…  For me it’s not always about the smiles… I mean, smiles are great and I do my best to capture some at every session, as you will see below.  But there is also something special about catching a more thoughtful expression that shows another side of your child’s personality.   I find these shots beautiful!  I guess for me it’s about capturing genuine expressions…nothing forced…no “say cheese” for example.  This older sister was a little shy at first.  She started to come out of her shell little by little and then once I started to photograph her brother, she got a renewed interest…funny how that happens with kids, right?

Anyway, this first one is one of my favorites…

Only 6 days old when I met her, this baby girl was all of 5 lbs when she was born.  Being so young and small made our session an easy one…she slept the entire time and was very easy to pose.  Her mother did a fantastic job with the girlie accessories.  This first headband with the leopard print was my favorite, and the pink bloomers a close second.  Dad was also there to lend a “hand” and with more than just the hammock, as you’ll see…  Enjoy!

I’ve been loving all the newborn shoots I’ve had lately.  I love how differently each one turns out.  Each baby is one of a kind; each family has a different story; and every home that I enter has a style and feel of it’s own.    I like to incorporate as much of this as I can into each session to make it a custom experience…that keeps it fresh and exciting for me and also unique for my clients.  This baby’s parents had such a cool bedroom…I just had to use their purple walls as a backdrop.  Throw in some beautiful window light, a gorgeous dresser and a zebra rug and voila –  styling complete!  It doesn’t hurt that this baby brother is just a sweet as can be.   Enjoy the view…

Look how peacefully this little newborn girl is sleeping.  You would never guess that her dad lulled her into this slumber by cranking up a Pandora rock station.  That’s right, he said she liked rock music and cued up a station that played Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and The Police to send her into la-la land.  Of course, I was happy during the shoot, but I would never have imagined a one week old would sleep serenely to the crooning of some classic Rod Stewart.  Shows you what I know.

I love her little angel face…I think some new sample canvases featuring this little beauty will be ordered soon – for me!
