The newborn session is precious for so many reasons. Your baby is changing daily and in a month will not look like a newborn anymore. That is why the timing of newborn sessions is crucial. The ideal time is within the first two weeks after birth. That is why it is important to have a date saved on the calendar as early as possible. There are also times when baby decides to come earlier than the due date, and for that reason, I try to remain as flexible as possible to accommodate newborns. If you, however, lost track of time and forgot to set a newborn session appointment, do not hesitate to check with me. Although I cannot guarantee it, I will do my best to squeeze you onto the calendar.
My newborn sessions can last anywhere from 2-4 hours, depending on the size of the session you choose and how well the baby stays asleep. I have special sounds playing, and the studio will be quite warm to help your baby fall and stay asleep. I only do one session a day, and this will be a relaxed, no-stress time you spend in my studio. I spend a good bit of time soothing and posing your baby, and we may stop a few times for feeding and mommy time. And in case baby doesn't want to sleep right away, I try to ensure all my moms that we will still capture sweet baby moments. Some of my favorite newborn images are when baby is awake, and wide-eyed photos can be truly breathtaking. Either way, we will create amazing photos and memories!
You do not need to bring any props or outfits to your session unless you have something of sentimental value you would like in your pictures. Otherwise, I have numerous outfits, headbands, hats, bonnets, and one-of-a-kind vintage props. I will safely and artistically pose your baby in one, two, or three set-ups, depending on which package you choose.
If you feel as strongly about capturing babies first year as you do about a newborn session, then my "Baby Plan" is created just for you! It is the best way to stay on track with baby's precious milestones and is a great value as well! Check out my "Baby Plan" to see if being a member is right for you!
