Why choose Lisa Matthis Newborn Photography?
*I take my time every step of the way. Sessions can be anywhere from 2 hours to 4 hours. I never rush to end a session. It just happens naturally when I know I have the images I am looking for. I spend, in total, anywhere from 20-30 hours on your session between the planning, preparation, the shooting, the editing, the proofing, the ordering, and more.
*Safety is most important to me. I will never put your baby in danger. I have a fully trained full time assistant to make sure your baby has someone watching her/him every second of the session.
*Quality… not quantity. It’s an investment that will last forever. Each and every image I treat as a piece of art…each given time and care. Each client is seen as important and each order is treated like a gift. All my products are printed on high quality professional paper.

How do I prepare baby for the session?
Immediately before leaving home to come to the studio, give baby a FULL feed – you can top up when you arrive. This will help baby remain peaceful and sleepy throughout the session.
If your child is breastfed & needs to feed we will happily break for this. If however you are comfortable to use a bottle of breast milk or formula for the session, please bring it with as it makes the session easier.
