When should I schedule my newborns session?:
The best time to schedule your newborn session is during your pregnancy. We will add your expected due date to our calendar. When your baby arrives give us a call or text and we will finalize your session date. If you happen to stumble across our site after your baby is born we will try our best to squeeze you in before the 16 day mark.
What age is considered newborn?:
Newborn sessions should occur within the first 16 days of life. Why this early? After 2-3 weeks our little newborns lose their womb-like behavior. We want them curly, comfy and ready for some sleep. Most of the newborns shown in our gallery are less than 16 days old.
Does Elzee Photography provide the props?:
Elzee Photography provides mostly all the props unless you wanted something specific for your session. You can view some of our props here.
I want to bring a special item and have my baby photographed with it, is that okay?:
Yes, absolutely. We encourage our clients to bring vintage items, family heirlooms, culture dress, and anything you want to include in the session.
How long does a newborn session take?:
Most newborn sessions take anywhere from 1.5 hour to 3 hours. Each child is different and some sleep very well and some don’t. Please be prepared to spend up to 3 hours in the studio.
What if my baby does not sleep?:
If your baby does not sleep after 45 minutes we send you home and reschedule a new date. This sometimes happen when the baby is cluster feeding and nothing we do settles them. We cannot continue to session while the baby is not asleep.
What days does Elzee Photography do Newborn sessions?:
Elzee Photography only does newborn sessions Monday through Friday at 10:00am. We do not do newborn session’s on the weekends.

Newborn, Milestone, Children, Maternity, and Family Photographer.
I am passionate about newborn photography. I adore the ability to create works of art with each newborn. We take our time to make sure everything is right. We are proud to be serving the Raleigh Durham triangle area.
The photographer, Crystal, creates beautiful pictures. She is patient, caring, and so very knowledgeable when it comes to photographing children. She has a wealth of props and has a keen eye for matching items (including headbands for little girls). I've had both a newborn and cake smash session with her (for both my girls) and am very satisfied. She captured my daughters' personalities to a T. I will definitely be a repeat customer (again!)-SAMANTHA BOLES
Crystal is an amazing photographer. We have done our newborn session, 6month, 1 year old session, and mini sessions with her and have always been extremely pleased. She is patient and handled my baby with the utmost care and consideration. She has tons of cute outfits, fun props and backdrops. Love how there are no hidden costs and she is upfront with her pricing. Highly recommend Elzee Photography to capture all your special moments.-Argelia Goodner
Crystal is extremely professional and does great work. We have had maternity pictures, newborn pictures, Easter pictures, Christmas pictures, cake smash pictures, and even Halloween pictures done by Crystal. She always works her magic and is so patient with my two kiddos. Her prices are very reasonable for the quality you get. She does outdoor pictures and has a beautiful studio as well. We will continue to use her for our future pictures. -Kim Squires

We've used Crystal at Elzee Photography for our maternity shoot, hospital photos, newborn photos, and first birthday cake smash. She is amazing! So patient with our little one who wasn't too happy! I learned some tricks for soothing him from her as well :) Highly recommend! -Gwen Vila
I have taken my one year old daughter to Elzee Photography 3 times in her first year of life. She is so great with babies, first we had our newborn shoot with her and the pictures were breathtaking! She made my daughter feel at ease, relaxed and comfortable. We really enjoyed how professional and creative Crystal is, so we took our daughter back for a session to capture our daughters 1st Christmas and just recently Baby’s 1st Bday/Smashcake Session. Elzee photography always delivers high quality, timeless photos. Professional and comfortable atmosphere, also she is so good with babies and children. We will definitely be back to capture more of our daughters milestones and precious moments for years to come.- Lee Pontzer
Crystal is amazing. In just about every way you can think of. She's organized, professional, friendly, fast and my kids LOVE her. I'll always treasure the photos she's taken for us!-Colleen Stafford
