What to Expect
— Newborn —
The best age to photograph newborns is when they are between 5-10 days new. During this time newborns are still very sleepy and curly. They don’t mind you moving them around from pose to pose while they rest in dreamland! Once they have a full belly and are kept warm, they will generally sleep the entire session.
This is not to say we can’t photograph your newborn at any other age. Beautiful images can be captured at any stage. However, you should know that once beyond this “new” stage,
we may not be able to get the curly poses. If you are sure you want specific poses, please ask about those during your pre-consultation.
I create a calm and peaceful environment during our time together. It is important to let me know if we will be photographing older siblings, as well as mommy and daddy shots.
These will take place at the beginning of the session so that we may have the remaining time to focus on baby alone.
Dads often take older siblings home or on a walk for the remainder of the session. We often allow 10-15 minutes at the beginning of your session for feedings.
The studio is kept very toasty in order to keep your baby warm and comfortable. Newborns can lose their body temperature quickly, especially when unclothed,
so we need to assure they are kept warm at all times. You may want to dress in layers so that you are comfortable as well.
Please know that babies pee and poo on everything and you don’t need to worry. I have plenty of wipes and pads on hand and everything is washed after each session.
There will be a white noise machine running to help soothe the baby.
Feel free to sit back, relax, read a book, or even take this opportunity to nap yourself!
— Little Boys —
If you are considering having your baby boy circumcised, we will need to make sure we allow him at least 5 days of healing time before his session. It’s always best to schedule the
procedure after the photo session if at all possible.
No outside cameras or videos are allowed at the studio or any location session. I love it when clients share behind the scenes cell phone photos of me working with their babe. I only ask that they please ask before taking a cell phone photo so as not to interfere with my work.
— Maternity —
Fond Memories of motherhood begin before the birth of your child! It is such an awe-inspiring experience to witness your body growing to accommodate the budding life inside of you. Being one with your unborn child is a singular and brief experience that should be cherished. A maternity session will help you remember your beautiful glow and the feminine curves of your body as well as the little flutters, hiccups and other interactions you and your little one share during your pregnancy. Each session is intended to help you feel as relaxed and gorgeous as you look.
