There is nothing more precious than professional photos of your newest family member. They change so fast in those first few weeks. Add that to your sleep deprivation and and let's face it - it's a blur!
Newborn sessions take place in the first few weeks of life, with days 7-14 being most ideal to capture that curled up, sleepy phase.
This time goes by quickly so it is recommended to schedule your session during your pregnancy so we can reserve time in the weeks around your due date.
These sessions will take place at Season's Raleigh Newborn Studio. This includes backdrops, blankets, hats and other accessories. "Lifestyle" sessions (using only your home and personal items as the backdrop) are also available at your request. She prefers more comfortable and natural positions of this precious, fragile phase of life so she will work with baby both in your arms and snuggled comfortably onto a beanbag. Baby's comfort, well being and safety are always most important.
Season has been working with newborns in the Raleigh - Durham, NC area since 2005 and prides herself on being on the area's foremost newborn photographer. Please visit her newborn gallery to see a collection of her work and view her most recent newborn sessions on the blog.

Raleigh photographer Season Moore has many areas of expertise in the field of photography but has a special passion for newborn portraits. Newborn portraiture captures these precious babies within the first few weeks of life, some as soon as just days after birth. Sometimes nervous, and almost always tired, new parents are bonding with their child when these photos are taken. These sessions take place in Season's Raleigh Studio providing a comfortable and relaxed setting for what she says will be the most treasured portraits a family will ever have taken.
Season says, "Those first days after welcoming a new baby are such a blur for most parents. Newborns change so quickly and these photos will capture the tiny details that we as parents may forget as time goes on. It's hard to believe now that my children were once tiny enough to sleep curled up in my hands!"
Clients describe her newborn portrait style as "modern and contemporary" but still "timeless". Season has won many awards for her work with babies and families in the Triangle area including being voted a Best of by Citysearch.com and a Parent's Pick by Parent's Connect Nickelodeon. Her work has been featured in several magazines including a Premier Baby and Child cover. She is proud to donate her time photographing critically ill children and babies suffering from chronic diseases with the organization Flashes of Hope.
Season recommends scheduling these newborn photo sessions before the baby is born to ensure availability around your due date. She has photographed babies all over North Carolina but most often works in Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Apex, Wake Forest, Chapel Hill, Garner, Holly Springs, Knightdale, Fuquay Varina and other areas within 30 miles of Raleigh.
As a Raleigh Newborn Photographer she also offers baby photography, children's photos, family portraits, high school senior photos, mini sessions, and modeling, headshot and commercial photography.
