Inside Newborn Sessions


Philip Gabriel Photography hosts sessions at our private studio in Media, PA, or in the comfort of your own home.

Our main goal is to keep baby, mom and dad as comfortable as possible. Over the years with our many sessions, we’ve learned a few tricks along the way! In order to capture peaceful images of your baby, we know the importance of recreating that warm comfy environment your baby has just lived in for nine months! Some of these tricks include keeping our studio at a warm 80 degrees and using our white noise machines to keep your little one relaxed and sleepy.

Here are a few of the things that make our newborn sessions so unique:

  • Our images always look natural and serene.
  • We stick with simple backgrounds.
  • We don’t use too many props (a knitted hat or diaper cover may be used to add to the overall look of the photo, but they are never over-the-top)
  • Our main goal is for mom and dad to relax while we capture priceless images of the newest member of your family!

Session Planning

Philip Gabriel Photography recommends scheduling your newborn photography session during your third trimester. You’ll have way too much going on in the weeks leading up to birth to worry about planning a photoshoot!

We’ll work with you to choose a date for your session based on your anticipated due date. You can firm up the date & time after your new baby is born.

The ideal session time arrives quickly after birth. We recommend holding your session within your baby’s first 14 days when they are still very sleepy!

We can’t wait to capture priceless images of your little one for you to cherish for years to come!
