You just had a new baby! What an exciting time in a parent's life. Also one that passes us by way too quickly. What better than to capture these precious memories in their first few days of life with photographs? That's what I am here for!
When to schedule the session?
I prefer to photograph newborns between 3-10 days old simply because they tend to still be very sleepy and easy to pose.
Where will the session be held?
I have a studio in my home and use natural light. My studio is portable and you can choose to have me travel to your home and bring all of my items for an additional $25.
How long will the session take?
Sessions typically take 2-3 hours. This will allow us to work at a relaxed pace and cater to the baby's needs. If we need to stop to feed, change, or cuddle the baby that is not a problem. My goal is to keep everyone comfortable and happy and make this an enjoyable experience. Prior to the session I will email you additional information with details about how to prepare for the session. One last thing: babies will pee on things and that is okay! No worries at all--everything is washable :-)
What should my baby wear?
Most of the session your baby will be photographed without clothes. I welcome clients to use items that friends/family have made such as diaper covers, booties, and hats. I also have items to swaddle the baby in as well as a variety of hair accessories/hats. I do ask that you please bring/have any items you wish to use for the photographs. These are your photos and I want you to make them your own. I also have several props to use, but welcome you to use any items you may have such as baskets, crates, etc.
