As both a mother and photographer, Eileen has designed the entire Blume Babies Experience around your needs as a new mother. We want you to feel relaxed, secure and pampered during your time in the studio. Therefore, you may choose to remain close and participate in your baby’s portraits throughout your session or — if you prefer — to observe from a distance while you restore yourself in our spa-inspired quiet room. Your newborn will be pampered as well, kept comfortable in a safe environment that’s warmed perfectly for a cozy sleep. You and your baby may break as needed for soothing and nursing. And, of course, Eileen will bring you and any other family members together for portraits as well.
Newborns are best photographed between 5 and 10 days old, when they are sleepiest and flexible enough to get into those cute newborn positions. We will pencil in your due date, then schedule the actual session shortly after baby arrives. If your baby is older than two weeks, then we recommend booking one of our lifestyle sessions instead. Newborn sessions begin at 9:00 AM each morning, as availability allows.
Session fee is $250. Prints start at $85 and there is no minimum purchase required.
Maternity sessions are available as an add-on to booking a newborn session and take place between 31 and 34 weeks of pregnancy.
Please feel free to schedule a consultation with Eileen if you’d like to visit the studio and view our heirloom art pieces ahead of your delivery. Congratulations again on your beautiful little blessing!
