Newborn Studio Sessions
It is suggested to book at the beginning of your third trimester but you can certainly book earlier if you like. Once you book we will put you on the schedule for your due date. After your baby arrives we adjust the date of your session, ideally when baby is 5-14 days old but no older than 4 weeks. Studio sessions take 2- 3 hours in length and really gives you a bit to sit down, relax, have a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy the session. Feedings, diaper changes and breaks for baby, if needed, are considered in the length of the session so we can stop as much as necessary. I never rush these sessions as we want baby as relaxed and as comfortable as possible. I love getting those wide awake photos at the beginning, right before they go to sleep. It is completely ok if your baby is awake the entire session. Some babies are a lot more curious than others and don't want to miss anything! lol
At your session we will do one color backdrop for the posed baby portraits, 3 different prop set ups, detail shots (hair, lips, feet etc.) a few composites (digital) shots and parent/sibling photos. I do have a studio policy that if you have siblings that are younger, please plan on bringing someone to stay with them in the waiting area outside the studio until it is time for their photos with baby. This is for safety purposes and to have a quiet calm atmosphere for baby. Sibling photos are something I love to do and always keep it sweet and simple for the brothers and sisters.
