Angi- a baby whisper 

 

Hi there!

I am Angi of Angi Carman Photography, your Portland OR newborn photographer for your beautiful baby portraits. I feel so passionate about documenting these new little loves and take so much pride in what I do. Ask any of my clients, and they will tell you that I put my heart and soul into each and every session! With over 2000+ newborns photographed to date, I am highly experienced in newborn photography and would love to capture your new bundle of joy. As a parent myself, I am all too aware that those newborn days are truly fleeting and in a blink of an eye, it really will be difficult to remember just how tiny they once were. Sit back, let me come to your home and do the work as I document this incredible time for you, so you will never forget.

After the newborn age, we also love to capture the “Sitters”, between 6-8 months old, and also the special “Cake Smashers” at one year! I feel that those are important milestones to document in your baby’s first year.

As a Mom of four, including a sophomore at UO- GO DUCKS! and two boys heavily in baseball, we love taking our kids a going on weekend trips. When I am not shooting, you’ll find me cheering on my boys at their games and planning our next adventures.

Reach out to me- your trusted Portland newborn photographer.

I am just a text, call, or email away and would love to send you all the details on capturing your newborn’s earliest moments!

Love, Angi

THE NEWBORN EXPERIENCE

Smooth. Effortless. Easy. Comfortable Just a few of the words that describe what working with me is like. From your initial inquiry to your final images, I am big on communication and setting clear expectations. After you’ve completed your questionnaire and booking form, and reviewed and signed our contract, your only job on the day of baby’s photoshoot is to open your door. Thats it. Once I arrive to your home, I will set up the custom colors you’ve chosen all in the comfort of your own home. Just breathe. You’ve just had a baby! You’re off duty for a few hours! Many of our parents are so surprised that I can set up a studio in their homes.

THE BABY EXPERIENCE

After the newborn age, I offer a “Sitting Up” baby milestone photoshoot for babies between six to eight months old. This is such a great age to photograph your baby! Once baby is sitting up unassisted and independently. So many great expressions, but they aren’t mobile yet! I just love being your baby’s personal entertainer, jumping and hopping around like a playful monkey, pulling funny faces, and making adorable noises to coax out those heart-melting smiles. Before I arrive, we will talk about outfits, and setups desired. Our session will be a blend of creative props and a focus on capturing those unique expressions and faces your baby is now famous for – the ones you’ve grown to love and cherish. I am here to ensure that every giggle, every curious glance, and those fleeting, adorable expressions are beautifully captured.

WHEN SHOULD NEWBORN

PHOTOS BE TAKEN?

 

I have been photographing newborns for over 12+ years now. In my experience, the best time for a newborn photoshoot is typically when the baby is between 8 to 17 days old. After photographing hundreds and hundreds of babies, this seems to be the sweet spot. During this timeframe newborns are usually still super sleepy, which means they are less likely to wake while being posed, swaddled or moved from prop to prop. They are also still in that curly, snuggly mode from being in the womb, making it easier to pose them into those sweet newborn positions. On top of this, baby acne has likely not set in yet. Before 8 days, baby is still learning how to feed, getting the hang of either the breast or the bottle, and their tiny digestive system is just still figuring it all out. Mom and Dad, plus any siblings, are all still getting settled in once home from the hospital and everyone is just trying figure out the new normal! However, after 17 days or so, babies tend to sleep less deeply and will wake easier. They are just becoming more aware of their new world! Can we still capture beautiful photos if baby is past 17 days? Absolutely! We just adjust our expectations a bit. So, in my professional opinion, the best time to take newborn photos is 8-17 days. Please remember that I use this as a guideline and not a hard rule, though, and this timeline is adjusted significantly for NICU and early babies.
