Here are a few of my most asked questions. If you have any further questions about photos or the session feel free to email or call!
When should I schedule my newborn session?
The sooner the better as we only take so many newborns a month. So you want to be sure to contact us during your pregnancy to get your due date on the calendar. We are typically booked about 1-2 months in advance, although we do leave a little “breathing” room for unexpected arrivals.
When will my newborn session be?
I schedule the newborn session in the first 7-10 days of life. I like to aim for 1 week to ensure they are nice and sleepy and have that fresh “newborn curl”. Once you book, I’ll add your due date to the calendar and then once baby arrives you can give me a call or shoot me an email and we can finalize a date for the session.
Where do photo sessions take place?
I have a studio area in my home and have several props available for use. All newborn sessions are photographed out of the studio as we use studio (artificial) lighting. We love to take it outdoors for 6 month and older sessions, including maternity. Maternity sessions can take place in-studio or outdoors depending on how you would like to showcase your beautiful baby bump.
How long do sessions last?
Most newborn sessions last 2.5 hours and sometimes longer (up to 4 hours) if little one doesn’t cooperate. Ideally I like them sleeping the entire time. All other sessions last about 1 hour.
Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes/No. Unless the person gifting the session is participating in the ordering of the photos (such as husband gifting his wife).
Is it ok for me to take photos during the session?
We request that you leave the photo taking to the professional. Having an additional camera in the studio can distract from the true focus of the session, your baby.
What should I wear for our newborn session?
I have no specific items that I like you to wear, I do however just ask you avoid prints as it can be distracting in photos. Black is always a popular color, white/cream gives images a soft/clean feel, also a pop of color is always fun! I also wrap moms in fabric so their arms are exposed for a sweet baby and skin image.
When will I receive my viewing gallery?
Timing will depend on the time of year, but generally it is around 2 weeks from date of session when you will receive your gallery login information.
