Below are a few tips to help you prepare for the make the most of your maternity session. This day is about you, after all, and the journey you are on. Let’s make it amazing!

Schedule and Plan Your Maternity Session

After your maternity session is scheduled, we will invite you in for a design consultation. During your maternity design consultation, we will discuss art, locations, ideas and everything else we need to design your perfect maternity session. You will view couture maternity gowns available to our clients and we will help you select the perfect one for your session. We will also discuss wardrobe for everyone else participating in the session.

Rest and Drink Plenty of Water

Maternity photography sessions can really take it out of you. The session may last a little longer than a usual session so that we can build in breaks for you to rest if necessary. Staying hydrated prior to the session will help keep you energized and it is great for the skin. Get plenty of rest as well. Hydration and rest can help minimize the possibility of cramps while posing during your session. Make sure you eat prior to your session as well. You will burn a lot of energy during your session.

Plan to be Pampered

We provide a luxury maternity experience, which means we take care of everything. We have a wonderful relationship with a magnificent hair and makeup artist. If you elect to have hair and makeup done for your session, we can coordinate that for you. You arrive about an hour and a half early and the artist will come to the studio so you are ready to move right into your session when she is finished.

As a professional newborn photographer based in Oklahoma City, I take the safety of my clients, including our smallest clients, very seriously. With the recent challenges resulting from Covid-19, creating a happy but healthy photo studio environment has never been more important.

I’ve been a professional photographer since 2007 and I’ve learned quite a few best practices for keeping both the newborns and families happy and safe. I not only want you to have amazing newborn fine art to enjoy for years to come, I want you, and your little one, to have an outstanding experience during the actual photo session itself.

With that in mind, here are specific ways I focus on to create a healthy and happy photo session for you and your newborn.

Newborn Photography Studio Safety

#1 - We Keep the Photo Studio Clean

First and foremost, we keep our studio clean! After every photo shoot, we do a thorough cleaning by using safe but effective cleaning products. We never use harsh chemicals (like ammonia) but make sure to disinfect all potential surfaces and common areas.

Also, all clothing, blankets, and props that we use are cleaned after each photo session.

#2 - We Keep Everyone Involved Healthy

After making sure we have a safe and clean photo studio, the next step is to make sure everyone involved is also healthy!

We make sure that at the time of your photo session, my assistants and I are in top health. We also ask the same of you. If you’re ill or have been exposed to any potential illnesses, it’s best to postpone the photo session until you’re better and have been to visit your doctor.

Naturally, we want to keep you and your newborn away from anyone with any cold or flu-like symptoms, or anything that could potentially harm anyone involved.

#3 – We Prioritize Newborn Safety

I have extensive training in newborn photography posing and safety. All poses are baby led and babies are never forced into a position that is uncomfortable for them.

We will never suspend baby from any prop, or leave them to balance in a position that could potentially cause harm. Complicated poses are composited from multiple images so that your baby’s safety is never compromised.

#4 – I Have Been Immunized

In this day when vaccines are so controversial, I believe it is important to make parents aware that I have received my immunizations.

Not just against Covid 19, but also Tdap. This is important to know because Pertussis (whooping cough) can be very dangerous to your newborn. I also receive my flu shot annually.

#5 – I Wear a Mask

I know masks are not required in most places now, but I will always take all preventative measures when it comes to the health of your newborn. What might be a little cold, that I don’t know I have, to me could mean something much more serious for your baby.

#6 – I Have an Assistant at All Newborn Sessions

An assistant is vital in helping to ensure that your newborn stays safe throughout the session. This provides a set of hands close by so that baby is never unattended.

#7 – We Take Breaks for Soothing, Eating and Changing

We want baby to be as comfortable as possible, so they call the shots. When they need a break so that they can get a snack, or just need to be soothed by mama for a minute, we recognize that and make sure that they are happy.

Your Safety is Our Top Priority During Your Newborn Photo Session

As part of your baby’s photo session, your health and your newborn’s health is our main concern. If you have any questions or concerns about our safety policies, then be sure to Schedule your consultation here.

Also, if you're in the Oklahoma City area and would like to schedule your newborn photo shoot, you can do so here.

Few things in life are as precious as cradling a brand new baby in your arms. Their tiny fingers and hands, they’re sweet coos, and making eye contact - all so special!

This is one reason why I specialize in newborn photography right here in Oklahoma City. Capturing those moments and preserving them forever in fine art photography is something your family will treasure for years to come.

I’ve worked with families in and around Oklahoma City that have come to my photo studio. I work hard to make sure that the fine art that I produce, featuring your precious baby, creates something your family will greatly value and be proud to display in your home.

As a professional Oklahoma City Newborn Photographer, I strive to provide the best photography sessions possible, all while keeping the well-being of your little one as my top priority.

Oklahoma City Newborn Photographer

I’ve been a professional photographer since 2007, focusing my efforts on both newborn photography as well at maternity photography. My goal has been to provide my neighbors here in Oklahoma City, and the surrounding areas, fine art they can be proud of.

My training has taught me how to look for and capture tender moments. From a newborn’s precious little features, to their tender yawns, to their sleeping heads resting on their tiny hands, and more.

In fact, I love working with clients and work hard to develop relationships with their families and love capturing the memories as the families grow.

Listen to what Kareen F shared:

Kelly is an amazing photographer and person! She is fun to work with and very professional! She's been taking pictures of my little one since she's newborn and the pictures are always beautiful.
We recently did a family session and she was very patient and she captures moments beautifully! Her pictures never fail to amaze me! She is very talented photographer! Highly recommend!

The Newborn Photography Experience

A baby's first photo session can be a daunting task. You want to make sure that they’re well taken care of and that you also can enjoy the experience. Because of that, my team and I have created an atmosphere that you and your newborn will feel comfortable in.

It all starts with our initial phone consultation to go over your goals and what kind of photographic experience and artwork you’d like to have.

Once you’re in the studio, you’ll notice that we’ve got everything you could think of for the your newborn’s photo session. We have all of the props needed, headbands & bonnets, wraps, and more. We have everything we need to make sure your newborn poses like a pro!

A newborn photo shoot should be about capturing memories and you’ll see that our full-service photo studio located in Oklahoma City will help you and your baby feel welcome and make for an enjoyable experience.

Your Newborn Session with Kelly Lynn Photography

Newborn sessions with me are tender photo sessions that will capture those precious first moments. No two newborn sessions are equal. As a professional photographer, I can certainly guide you with ideas, but I’ll make sure we tailor the photoshoot to your specific requests and goals.

Newborn photo sessions start at $250. Prints and digital images are additional and after about a week of the photo shoot, we can go over the images and you can then select which ones you’d like as well as what kind of fine art prints you’d like made.

If you have a newborn coming, and are interested in learning more about the best Oklahoma City Newborn Photography session, then be sure to Schedule your consultation here.
