If you’re here, that probably means you have just booked or you are thinking about booking a newborn session with me. How exciting! First of all, congratulations on your bundle of joy!
Choosing a newborn photographer means choosing the person who will be coming into your home and handling your precious new baby for 2-3 hours. That is not something I take lightly. I, myself, am a mom to three young children under the age of 5 and I always try to put myself in the shoes of my clients. I am proud to say I am trained in newborn safety, and I am continually educating myself in all things related to newborn photography.
I encourage expectant parents to book their newborn session as soon in their pregnancy as possible. I only take on a small number of newborn sessions a month. This ensures I can dedicate plenty of time to each family no matter when baby decides to make his or her appearance.
Once your baby is born (or once you have an induction date set!) just shoot me a message letting me know. Then we will schedule a time for me to come to your home before baby is two weeks old. Newborn sessions are done on weekday mornings and usually begin at 9:00am.
A couple days before our session, I’ll send you a prep guide with a list of things you can do the morning of our session that will help our session run as smoothly and quickly as possibly.
When I arrive at your home for a session, I will set up my pop-up studio wherever you have the most room in your home. Usually it’s the living room. After I get set up, I will take baby from you, wrap them up all nice and snug, and I will take over from there. Moms and dads, PLEASE feel free to take advantage and sneak a little nap or relax on the couch.
Sessions normally take anywhere from 2 to 3 hours depending on how many feed breaks or diaper changes baby needs, and depending on how well they are sleeping for me.
I hope this gives you a better idea of what to expect from a newborn session with me. As always, please let me know if there are any questions I can answer for you!
