your newborn pictures

Photographing newborn babies is one of Alisha Bacon Photography's passions and she is one of the few photographers that specialize in newborn baby photography in Knoxville, TN. She has been photographing newborns for several years and has the experience to provide you with beautiful, sweet images. As a photographer, newborn sessions are so special; being trusted with someone's precious new addition is such a joy and an honor. The safety and welfare of your little one is always put first first; her number one priority is for them to be safe and comfortable for the duration of their session. 

Newborn baby photography sessions are best booked well before your little one is scheduled to arrive, and held when they are between 5-10 days new. This time frame means that they'll still be sleepy, flexible, and able to pose in those darling, traditional poses for their newborn pictures. If your newborn has already arrived or is older than the ideal time-frame, don't hesitate to contact Alisha Bacon Photography. She will be happy to do everything in her power to make sure you still capture those first baby pictures.

Newborn photography sessions typically last between 2 and 3 hours. This provides ample to time to photograph as well as feed, hold and comfort your baby in between poses. The best newborn sessions are the ones that we are able to help baby sleep deeply for the majority of their time with me. To help the session go smoothly, Knoxville photographers recommend that you try to keep them awake a few hours prior to the session time. You are welcome to take the time during your newborn photography session to relax a bit. Free time is hard to come by when you bring home your baby; feel free to bring a book or laptop if you'd like. Your baby is in excellent hands during his or her Knoxville photography session. 

All the necessary props will be provided for your session, including: crocheted hats and sets, crowns, headbands, baskets, blankets, wraps, etc. If there is something special or specific you'd like to include, you're welcome to bring that as well. Have a prop idea you'd like to see added to the collection? Let Alisha know and she'll do her best to have it made and ready for your newborn pictures. The prop collection is always growing and changing; Alisha Bacon Photography loves to partner with local, Knoxville, TN prop vendors for new props. 

Be sure to head over to the maternity page as well; Combined newborn and maternity packages are available to capture your entire motherhood experience. Having the same photographer with you from maternity to newborn helps enhance you're experience, especially if you're interested in your birth story being photographed. It gives us a chance to get to know one another, and for you images to have a cohesive style through each photo session.
