Newborn Sessions | Four Jays Photography | Portland, Oregon
The arrival of your precious little one is a time to be celebrated and cherished for a lifetime. Those first moments, days, and even weeks are fleeting and baby is changing so quickly as their features really start to develop. Wrinkles fade, hair grows/falls out/grows again, flaky skin disappears, and their little eyes begin to open to the wonder of the world. It’s in those moments, when parents are just getting to know their new arrival, and siblings see each other for the first time that love radiates the entire room. It’s so easy to forget all those little details in the whirlwind of a growing family, but photographs of that time preserve every perfect feeling and emotion. They hold the story of your family and should be captured, cherished, and handed down for generations to enjoy.
Danielle of Four Jays Photography specializes in home lifestyle and posed newborn photography. Newborn sessions take place between 6-21 days after birth and are 3-4 hours long and are conveniently located in your home. This allows the total comfort of all family members, especially siblings, extended family, and fur children. I bring everything needed to create timeless and breathtaking images of your newborn and family. It’s also my pleasure to incorporate any special items that have a personal significance to your family.
In their own words:
“Danielle was absolutely amazing!!! From the first meeting we had with her I knew we had made a great choice. Danielle is so sweet and personable, I automatically felt comfortable with her, and she was so great with our son! We booked a “First 48”, a newborn session, and a 1 year shoot (obviously to be done later). During our initial consult, she brought samples of her work and finished products for us to view, and took time to talk to us about the types of photos we were interested and color schemes, which she came prepared to incorporate in during both photo shoots. She took her time during each shoot and even brought a surprise set up for us incorporating a design like our announcement photo which was so special and thoughtful! Our little man spit up on her and had his very first blow out, of course on her beautiful white linens, and she was so sweet about it and told us not to worry about it at all (even though I felt terrible) she just took it in stride and kept moving forward. It was so nice having her come to the hospital and then to our home and not having to worry about bringing our newborn to a studio. She was quick to come back to let us review all the photos and pick the ones we were going to order, and got our edited photos back to us quickly as well. I would highly recommend Danielle to anyone who wants beautiful photos of their little ones, you will not be disappointed!!”
"Danielle is the sweetest, loveliest person you’ll ever meet. She was recommended by a friend and we couldn’t have been happier with the whole experience. She came to our house and quietly set up her equipment. The entire experience was incredibly relaxed for us, our 3 year old and newborn. She also came back to present our beautiful images and to deliver our photos. To say we were thrilled with the images is an understatement. Her lighting is stunning and she manages to make everyone look their absolute best. The images we chose will be treasured forever. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!"
“Our family has done multiple shoots with Danielle and she has been consistently professional, reliable and a pleasure to work with. She manages to get beautiful photos of near impossible situations... a newborn, two year old and a dog? (Plus tired parents!) We will treasure her photos forever!”
"Not ONLY is Danielle extraordinarily talented behind the lens, but she is one of the nicest and easiest people to work with, ever. I researched a handful of photographers when choosing someone for my baby, and based on the first email reply from Danielle, I knew she was the one. Cheerful, friendly, informative- she had it all. Not only that, but her prices are competitive and in my opinion, the product far exceeds her rates. We did both maternity and newborn sessions with Danielle, and she far exceeded our expectations. She spent SO much time with us, and was so patient and fun to work with. I'd recommend her to absolutely anyone, and can't wait for my next excuse to see her!"
"Danielle is such a thoughtful artist who truly works to capture magical moments. We were fortunate enough to connect with Danielle through a friend at work who recommended her. Danielle was so responsive and found a time to capture our tiny baby incredibly quickly after we were blessed with a somewhat last minute adoption. I have only good things to say about our experience as an adoptive two mom family. Danielle is a professional who brings her experience as a mom to her work in the most intentional way. We will definitely be working with Danielle again!"
"We LOVED our session with Danielle. She brought a sense of calmness with her and was just amazing with our newborn. We knew the photos would turn out great, but they came out even better than expected. Her work is *absolutely* breathtaking."
"Thank you so much for the WONDERFUL photo session of our newest family addition. You captured baby S so very perfectly, we cannot thank you enough. Your talented eye and attention to detail is beyond incredible -- it's like you're "the baby whisperer"! You have captured such sweet and special moments that we will treasure in our family for a lifetime. THANK YOU! We love you AND your work. Simply amazing!"
