Cincinnati photographer Agnes Kindberg's newborn photo session behind the scene

HELLO


I'm glad you are here!

Agnes Kindberg

hello


I’m Agnes but my friends call me Aggie. I live in Symmes Twp, Ohio with my husband and three daughters. I am Slovakian-Hungarian born. My love for babies brought me to the USA as an au pair. I was a live-in nanny for 2 little girls who are all grown now.

Since then, I worked as a trained infant teacher, had three children of my own and I have been photographing babies and their families since 2010. Your little one is in good hands with me!

My favorite thing about being a photographer is to meet a lot of amazing people and to watch their family grow over the years. I’m here to document your special moments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where and when are the newborn sessions held?

My newborn sessions are held at 10am or 1pm on weekdays in my studio on 6871 Main Street, Newton, Ohio, 45244

I like to photograph newborns preferably between 10 and 15 days old while they are still very sleepy and little.

What to expect at the studio?

You can expect your newborn session to last around 2 -3 hours. You will have plenty of time for feedings and changing, etc. My newborn sessions

are very relaxed and laid back. I only schedule one newborn session a day, so you never need to feel rushed at your session. I follow the baby's lead and take breaks as the baby needs to eat to be changed.

The studio will be very warm so the baby would be more comfortable while posing. Please dress in layers. You can change outfit in our office area.

I will wash my hands frequently.

I will handle and pose the baby with care. I wipe down surfaces and wash blankets and swaddle between sessions with gentle detergent.

Do I need to bring anything?

Please, have a pacifier ready even if the baby doesn’t usually take it! A bottle of milk/formula will also help to keep the baby asleep while posing. Parents, your hands might be incorporated in some pictures so please, trim your nails before the sessions. If you breastfeed, make sure to bring some extra/more comfortable clothes for you to change after.

I will provide swaddling blankets, buckets, baskets, hats/headband for you to choose from, but I’m happy to use what you have.

Please, let me know if you have any special requests, rainbows or color preferences for the baby as neutrals, pastels or brighter colors.

When do I see my images?

About 48 hours after our session, I will upload the proof images (around 100) to my password protected

online gallery where you will be able to pick your favorite images. As many as you purchased in the package. Additional digitals are $5. Once you picked them, it will take me approx. 2 weeks to deliver the edited images. You will be able to download, share on social media and buy prints as well.

Looking forward to meet your family!
