My newborn sessions are 2-3 hours long in my in-home studio. During the session, the studio is warm and cozy with white noise to keep baby warm and comfy. These sessions are long to leave plenty of time to allow for feedings, rocking baby to sleep, diaper changes, and possibly additional feedings and snuggling if necessary while shooting. Newborn sessions are meant to be relaxed and comfortable for both the parents and baby, and in order to get a variety of shots of your precious bundle, ample time is set aside. I have all the props and backdrops so you don’t need to worry about anything, unless there is something you would want to incorporate. And I do encourage parent/baby and sibling shots as well!
I recommend couples book a newborn session early in the second trimester to assure availability. Since babies to tend to arrive on their own schedule, I will “pencil you in” about a week after your due date, and then we adjust as needed. I try to get babies in the first 10 days after arrival because they are still very sleepy and “curled” from being in your belly! So, if baby arrives early, you just need to let me know and we will schedule something for about a week after you get home from the hospital (this leaves plenty of time for the circumcision to heal (if that applies) before our shoot.). I always leave openings in my schedule for newborn flexibility.
A week to two later, I will have your images for you and you can decide how to use your print credit. My ready-to-hang, finished images and display canvases save you precious time. No need to work with a custom framer or have your cherished images end up under the bed or in the closet because the busyness of life gets in the way. I want to make sure that you can immediately surround yourself with all of your favorites to cherish for years to come.
If you decide to go ahead and book, I will send you a whole info sheet on how to prepare for your session so there is no stress!! Find newborn packages and investment information here and my newborn gallery here.
