BOOKING YOUR SESSION:  The best time to book your newborn session is during your 5th or 6th month of pregnancy (or earlier) to ensure I’m available when your little bundle of joy arrives.  I average 7 sessions a week and my schedule fills up very fast.

The best time to photograph your newborn is between 10-14 days while they are still in that sleepy and curly stage.  After two weeks of age, they tend to be disturbed while sleeping.  They can also become colicky or baby acne can start to flare.

PREPPING FOR YOUR NEWBORN SESSION: I ask that you nurse or feed your baby right before you leave to head my way.  A full baby = a sleepy baby.  🙂  If at all possible try to keep your newborn stimulated a couple of hours prior to our session so he/she will be ready to fall asleep in a cuddly and warm blanket.  The best way to photograph your newborn is in their birthday suit.  Clothes tend to be bulky and awkward.

PROPS: I supply all of the props but I welcome any props you may have.  I am always open to new ideas!  If you see something you like in any of the galleries, be sure to mention it before your session.

what to expect from me and important information:

Photographing newborns is my passion.  I spend a lot of time getting every little finger and toe positioned perfectly when photographing your little bundle.  First and foremost, it is important to me for your baby look comfortable and peaceful in the photographs and to look like a piece of art.  I do love for my photos to appear timeless but do welcome a splash of trendiness in my work.

When arriving at the studio, be prepared to just sit back and enjoy the session.  I will take over as soon as you arrive, undressing baby and getting him/her used to me.  I will feed baby during the session if you are not opposed to bringing a bottle (expressed breast milk or formula).  If you are exclusively nursing, that is perfectly fine.  We can take as many breaks as we need to keep your newborn calm.  Also, a pacifier is a great way to soothe baby during the session so feel free to bring one if your baby takes one.  Many newborns are gassy; to ease their discomfort I ask that you bring a bottle of gas drops to the session just in case.  Gas drops are safe for the newest of babies.

My studio is kept at 80 degrees to keep baby comfortable for the session as they will be nude for a majority of it.  So feel free to dress in layers or dress light.

I will play white noise during your session to mimic the sounds of the womb.

There will be accidents and I’m perfectly fine with that.  Almost every newborn I photograph does have an accident on my backdrops. I’m not a modest person at all and keep on rolling.  So please don’t worry about that.

Be prepared to spend up to 3 hours at my studio.
