BOOKING YOUR NEWBORN SESSION
When you are ready to book your newborn session, contact me and we'll have a consultation either on the phone or at the location of your choice. There's no cost or obligation, just some time for us to get to know each other, go over your style choices, and pick a date for the shoot. Each one of my newborn sessions is customized to you and your home.
Because newborns don't always arrive when planned I reserve one due date a week. Even if your baby arrives 2 weeks early or 2 weeks late, you have peace of mind knowing that all of my newborn sessions are spaced and you'll have some flexibility still with scheduling.
The perfect time for a Newborn session is when baby is between 5 and 8 days old. With each passing day baby's sensitivity to sound and light increases. When they are this young they are very sleepy and still have that little curl to their body as if they are in the womb.
ON THE DAY
I have photographed over 1000 babies to date and never lose that sense of wonder and joy at holding a new life in my hands! It is truly an honor to be trusted with that little life and I don't take it for granted. When positioning your baby I practice safe sleep standards and am completely up to date with all vaccinations.
A newborn session can last up to 2.5 hours including a 20 minute setup and breakdown. I'll be bringing a positioning table/cushion, space heater, backdrops, and many props. It's best to have the heat up a little in the house and extra food on hand. We will take breaks to eat, burp, diaper change, rock, shush, bounce, and whatever baby needs to stay calm. I am very hands on and we will take our time.
THE BIG REVEAL
After about a week I will call to schedule a photo viewing. This is the best part! This will be the first time you see the photos and we will go through everything and make all decisions in regards to your order. No crazy sales pressure, just great pictures and a helping had to help you make artistic decisions. Once the order is complete I will bring everything to you in person 2-3 weeks later.
Although my focus in on newborns, I also offer packages for families and kiddos. Please contact me for specifics.
