When to Schedule Your Session.
We recommend that you contact us to “schedule” your session before baby is born to make sure we are able to photograph your newborn in those first precious weeks. However, we do our best to fit in new little ones.
We ask that our new mamas contact us within a few days of baby being born to ensure that we can schedule the newborn photography session within two weeks of baby’s birth. During this time, they are the sleepiest and we are able to get those squishy baby images that we all love.
Remember that most newborn sessions take approximately 2-3 hours.
The Day of the Newborn Session.
You are welcome gather any specialty items or personal props.
If you would like photographs with siblings or parents, we're happy to do so. Please let us know before the session.
NAPPING & FEEDING BABY:
It's a good idea to keep baby awake for an hour or two prior to the session and try to time feedings so that baby eats when you arrive at the studio (or eats just before we arrive for home sessions). Babies with a full tummy are usually nice and sleepy. This will, hopefully, ensure they are sleepy throughout the session.
That being said, we do realize that life with a new little one is not an exact science. Babies eat when they're hungry and sleep when they're tired. Please don't put too much pressure on yourself or your little one to time feedings or naps. We want this time to be as peaceful and stress-free as life with a newborn can be.
