Studio update

It has been a whirlwind past few months! Fall was busy with the arrival of Santa and then a ton of newborns October-January (and January is usually our quiet month!) I love meeting all these fresh faces with the arrival of their first baby blessing and catching up with past clients who are now welcoming more beautiful babies into their family – some even 13 years later! I can relate as the difference between my middle and last is 11 years!

I have been busy shopping for new items for the studio that compliment our simple, rustic style. I want all focus on the sweet baby, not the accenting props so small dainty headbands and hats and the ever popular teddy bears are now available in even more color choices!

If you are expecting, drop us a message on email (nicole@snipsandsnailsphotography.com) or our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/snipsandsnailsphotos) or Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/snipsandsnailsphotography/) as we would love to get to know more about you and your coming delivery and hope to work with your growing family!

For now, here are some of the recent sweet newborn babies that our studio had the pleasure of photographing!

AND last but not least SANTA!

Babies, Babies and more Babies!

As summer is winding down and we are enjoying the last sweet moments of summer, Snips and Snails Photography is gearing up for a whirlwind of new babies to photograph! Whether it is classic baby portraiture or capturing siblings or families with their new baby blessing, we are here for you! We offer several styles of newborn portraits to include posed, studio setups or a more lifestyle like approach. Interested in a fresh-48 in-hospital newborn session? We offer those too!

So what age is considered “newborn photography?” Usually, it refers to babies captured in the first two weeks of life. That newborn, fresh from the womb look, starts to change after this timeframe and the baby begins be less curly and more alert. You don’t want to miss all those tiny details either such as angel kisses, soft downy skin and especially those adorable eyelashes, lips and toes!

Parents often are nervous and wonder “what if my baby doesn’t cooperate?” My advice – don’t worry! As a specialist in newborn photography, we are prepared for and attentive to your newborn’s needs and go with the flow letting them guide the session!

Newborn photographers do book several months in advance so don’t wait until your baby arrives to contact us! We would love the chance to work with you and your growing family!

Newborn Photography in the Age of a Pandemic

Hello, hello? Anyone there? Is this thing on? Well, 2021, here we are. With the ousting of 2020 we all hoped to be in a better place. But, the pandemic of covid-19 still rages on. Thankfully, our lives are still blessed and our days still brightened by the arrival of many precious newborns who have no idea what is going on in the world around them.

I can’t imagine being a new parent at this time! After all, being a first time parent has enough challenges of its own, let alone becoming one in the heart of a pandemic! As a parent of 3 wonderful children of my own, it has taught me to slow down and enjoy both the ups and downs life throws at us and embrace the time together.

Yes, the studio was forced to shut down for several months in 2020 under the Governor’s color coded mandate for businesses; however, we are now open and very excited to photograph all those newborn blessings with their sweet features and wonderful connections with loved ones. It certainly is different in 2021, masks are worn during the entire session and temperatures are taken before entry! Props and any items in the studio were always sanitized between clients but now we even introduce uv lighting into our cleaning protocols.

We look forward to welcoming and photographing those fleeting first moments of newborn life with their perfect little features and connections to loved ones. It’s never to early to plan your newborn session. Please contact Nicole at nicole@snipsandsnailsphotography.com or 717.597.0952 for more information!

I was so happy to photograph this little guy and his family! He was so full of smiles the entire session and even gave me a few winks!  Once a baby is able to sit unassisted there are so many fun setups we can do and their personality just shines!  A few images from this fun session!

When this little 6 lbs newborn’s mom contacted me about newborn portraits and wanted an organic/rustic feel to the images, I knew they would be the perfect fit at Snips and Snails Photography.  Their little one was a perfect addition just after Valentine’s Day and so fun to work with!  He had the sweetest face that somehow looked wiser in years than that of a newborn and his expressions (especially the smiles) melted my heart.  Happy to share a few favorites from his newborn session!  Congratulations to these new parents!
