Baby’s First Infant Massage by Rebecca Hallman

Baby’s First Infant Massage by Rebecca Hallman

As a local newborn and baby photographer in Orlando, I am able to meet with like-minded individuals that offer service to my expecting and new moms. One of them being a local Occupational Therapist.


Rebecca Hallman has over 14 years of experience in pediatrics and child development. She has a passion for being a part of the foundations of families.  She became a Certified Educator of Infant Massage (CEIM) a few years ago because She believes in the power and healing of human touch.  Human touch is like nothing else; its ability to soothe, connect, convey, and bond without saying a word are unmatched. And human touch in infants is even more powerful! (I know firsthand!)


Infant massage is one important way to positively impact your babies’ development.  This is why Rebecca strongly believe in the importance of bringing this practice to Orlando area families. You might ask “But why do I need to do a massage, can’t I just hold and cuddle my baby?”  Holding and cuddling are great for bonding as well but having a structured event such as massage leads to greater interaction, connection, love, and trust between you and baby.  This type of interaction can improve the health and development of your baby even more.  It is well researched that parents have a large influence on their infant’s development, cognition, future learning and success by their actions and involvement in the first years of life.  Performing daily infant massage gives parents another tool to positively influence their baby’s well-being.  For parents, having this specific time for massage can also increase their confidence in caring for their baby, their connection and love, and their ability to read baby’s cues.


Infant massage is based on 4 main principles: interaction, stimulation, relaxation, and relief.  Within these 4 areas are an expanse of other benefits.  It’s the promotion of these factors that improve the foundations in the first years of life.  She wants to help you make those moments of interaction a lifetime of memories and happiness for your family.  It would be an honor for me to be a part of your family’s health and well-being.  Babies are smart, open, loving little beings that long for touch, attention, and socialization from their parents right from the start.  Infant massage is a great tool that you can learn to fulfill these needs.

She is a wonderful resources and has taught me her “pro-tips” which have come in handy during my newborn sessions!

Pregnancy Announcement Photo Session – Expecting Baby Girl! – Orlando Newborn Photographer

Congrats to Alley & Chris! They are expecting their first baby, a little girl, this February! I couldn’t be more excited for these two love birds. Putting together their gender reveal box required me to put on my thinking cap. After several practice tries (aka failed attempts) before our big day, I was ready to take the plunge. Our couple had no idea what color would be inside the box. Needless to say, everything went just as envisioned! Thank you for trusting me with your secret envelope!

Special thanks to TAD of Style | Tiffany A. Davis for styling our couple and for being an amazing assistant. While I captured the moment on film, TAD videotaped their big reveal.

Introducing Lola! Baby girl number three for this wonderful family. All three girls and their parent’s names start with L! What a fun little family tradition. 🙂 These gorgeous girls are my wonderful friend Elaine’s nieces. She has been such an amazing friend for over half my life! These girls are so blessed with an amazing and supportive family. When mom had to return to the hospital after just a week of giving birth, this entire family stepped up to the plate to take care of these girls. Through times of uncertainty this family was stronger than ever for these girls! So much unconditional love within this family! (Mom has since been returned home and bouncing back strong!) Thank you for welcoming me into your home again to capture your newest addition. Can’t wait for her first birthday smash cake session!

Gorgeous Newborn Girl | Orlando Newborn Photographer

Meet Hailey! One absolutely beautiful and squishy baby girl. I’ve known her mama for many years. We used to work together at Bennigans while we were in college. (Now that should give you an idea of how far back we go! That restaurant has been gone for many moons now!) It’s been so much fun catching up with old friends now that we are all ‘grown up’. I got the privledge to photograph their gender reveal at the beginning of their pregnancy and managed to keep it a secret. 😉 Their little Hailey was such a breeze to photograph. She loved every moment of it and just melted in my hands. She definetly will grow up to have Jen’s beauty and already has daddy wrapped around her little finger. I’m really happy for these two! They are such a fun couple, amazing parents, and this little girl just has them bursting with love. Congrats, W Family!  Orlando Newborn Photographer
