For your Newborn Session
I photograph babies between 5 and 15 days old. Please contact me when you know your due date and we will set your session date ‘in pencil’. This date is not set in stone as babies come when they want to. Call, text or email me when your baby is born so we can set your true session date. If you are breastfeeding then please avoid gassy food 48 hours prior to your session.
My newborn sessions take between 2 and 5 hours, depending on the package you choose.
It will be hot in my studio, I turn the heat up before you arrive and I also have a little portable heater I use in the direction that baby will be. Babies hate to be cold, most of the shots are of them naked. A warm naked baby is a happy baby. So please be warned that you may get hot as well, bring some light clothes to change into.
Feeding & Dressing Baby
What to Bring
In my little studio I have a variety of props.
Clothing for Newborn Family shots
If you are including photo’s of parents/siblings into your session then please keep clothing simple. No plaid, patterns or logo’s. Feel free to wear whatever color scheme you like. Both light and dark work well. I like the softer colors but the photo’s are going up in your home not mine :) Little girls in dresses and little boys, jeans and solid t’s. I like bare feet as well.
What happens after
It will take 3 to 4 weeks to edit the gallery. The gallery will contain enough images to let you have a choice. The viewing will be organize in the studio, so we can see the images together, discuss and do some corrections if any. The images will be delivered on un USB drive on that same day.
