Maternity and Newborn Sessions
There is no time in your life that is more amazing and exciting (and, okay, possibly terrifying!) than being pregnant and having a new baby. It is such a gift and deserves to be celebrated and remembered!
I know that not everyone feels like having their picture taken when they are pregnant, but I promise that you will not regret having maternity photos taken. When you look back on them years from now and are able to show your kids images from that special time in your life, when you were so excited to become a parent and were just glowing with joy, you will be so glad you took the time to have maternity photos taken. I love having the opportunity to photograph beautiful expecting mamas for this reason! I will do everything possible to help you feel comfortable during your session so that you can relax and just enjoy looking gorgeous!
"I wasn't sure I wanted to have maternity photos done, but they are so beautiful and now that I've seen them I can't imagine not having them!"
As a mom, I totally appreciate how hard those first few weeks with a newborn can be. Named as one of the Best Newborn Photographers in Cleveland, I have worked hard to make your custom newborn session experience as easy and enjoyable as possible. Your photo session will take place in the comfort of your home, and I will bring everything that we need so that you can just relax and focus on taking care of your new baby (and have fun!). Part of my job is to help you choose the best way to display your beautiful images in your home, so after your session I will help you design custom wall art and an heirloom album so that you can enjoy your custom photography on a daily basis.
Below are some examples of what you can expect from your maternity and newborn sessions with Jennie Lennon Photography.
These maternity photos were some of my favorite photos of the year. We had a gorgeous fall day to walk around Chagrin Falls and then we headed over to a meadow in Bainbridge and were able to capture some stunning portraits with the amazing fall backdrop. A cute couple, gorgeous mama-to-be and beautiful fall colors- it doesn't get better than that!
This maternity session is so adorable! Erin was so gorgeous while she was pregnant and I feel like you can just SEE their excitement as they were awaiting the arrival of their baby boy. After taking some pictures in their beautiful home, we headed outside where we got some beautiful shots in the snow.
I could not have asked for a more beautiful location for this maternity session. I often shoot in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, but there are only a few days in the year where this field of amazing yellow flowers is at its prime. We nailed it with the timing and the results were awesome!
This was probably one of the easiest babies I have ever photographed! Jayce was a perfect little model for his newborn session and we were able to get so many different poses in since he slept through the whole thing. This one of him in the wool bucket is one of my all time favorite photos- I couldn't believe it when he gave me a smile!
There's nothing I love more than having clients who come to me several times a year so that I can really get to know them and watch as their children grow up. And when those families expand and gain tiny new members, I love having the honor of photographing them to capture that precious first week of life.
This family was so sweet and such a pleasure to work with. Baby Paxton slept like a dream while his mama and I chatted away during his newborn shoot. He was one smiley baby! They have a gorgeous home which made a beautiful backdrop for some of the photos, and now they have 3 stunning canvases from this session hanging in their hallway so they can enjoy these images every day!
"HIGHLY recommended!! I could not have been happier after Jennie shot our newborn's pictures. She is a genuine professional and so easy and fun to work with. She edited our photos quickly and the quality of her photos and presentation is very well done. You will not be disappointed."
Below are some of my favorite maternity and newborn photos.
"Jennie is patient, caring and she pays attention to detail. She takes pride in her business and it shows through her work. There has not been a set of photos that we have not absolutely loved. We will continue to use her to capture our most precious memories."
If you love my work, contact me to book your session today! Maternity sessions should usually be booked around 32-34 weeks, and newborn sessions should be booked while you are still pregnant so that the session can take place when the baby is 5-10 days old (although I do my best to accommodate last minute requests!).
