Q. Where will my newborn session take place?
Newborn sessions take place at your house unless otherwise requested.
Q. How long will my newborn photography session take?
Between soothing, feeding, precise posing, and prepping shots, our newborn photography sessions can take up to 3 hours. Sessions with multiples (twins, etc.) may run longer. We love taking our time and perfecting every shot, and we are careful to follow baby’s lead as we work through the session.
Q. Can I bring my own props & accessories to our session?
Certainly, You are more than welcome to provide your own blankets and hats, and I encourage this to add personality and individuality to each shoot. However this is not required, I will provide all necessary items such as baskets, blankets and hats to create a beautiful photo session.
Q. How should we dress the baby?
You don't have to worry about clothes if you don't want to. Babies photograph beautifully in their own skin.
Q. How can I prepare my home for the shoot?
The room or rooms we are planning to photograph your new little one in must be VERY WARM. I would suggest 78+. For the adults it will be hot, but the baby will be toasty and happy. Space heaters are a great way to warm just one room. Another great thing to have on hand is a heating pad. I always try to remember to bring mine just in case.
Q. How can we prepare the baby?
Put diapers on as loosely as possible to avoid lines in the skin and avoid other tight clothing and socks.
Feed the baby right before my arrival. Make sure that belly is full. Yes, that means the baby will probably be sleeping or sleepy! This is a good thing. While babies are resting, they easily fall into the best positions for very cute photos (curled up, hands folded, legs crossed, etc), and I promise you their eyes will open at some point during the shoot.
