Newborn portrait sessions generally last around two to three hours to allow for feeding, changing, and soothing. Mornings are the best time to schedule a session as that is when babies are at there sleepiest. Please call to schedule your session about a month in advance so I can be sure to fit you in. Of course, babies come when they are ready so if the date we have saved for you doesn't work out, we will do our best to accommodate you. Because the schedule is so unpredictable, I only take a VERY limited number of newborn appointments each month.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Newborns photograph best in their bare bottoms or swaddled in a simple blanket. Bonnets, headbands, and cute hats can really add that special touch, so I recommend buying some ahead of time. For parents we recommend simple, solid colored clothing in light colors and neutrals for a soft, gentle feel. And of course there is nothing better than a skin on skin portrait with your baby.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY NEWBORN SESSION:
We recommend that you try to keep the baby up and awake for an hour to two before the session. This will ensure that your baby will be in a deep sleep when the session begins. Sleepy babies photograph perfectly, so I will ask you to undress and swaddle your baby before the feeding so as to not disturb them by undressing them afterwards.
Within 3-5 days of your session you will receive a private online gallery of the best images from our session. Once you choose your favorites I will artistically edit them and deliver the products you have chosen in a timely fashion. **If you need a certain image for birth announcements, make sure to let me know and I will get it to you as fast as I can!
