When do I book my newborn session and how does that work?
The sooner the better! I have most moms book their session in their second trimester. I will ask you about your due date, if it’s your first baby or if you have history of going early or overdue, and then we usually book your session for 1-2 weeks after your estimated due date. After your precious baby arrives, you shoot me a text or an email, and we decide whether it’s best to keep your originally scheduled date or reschedule. Knowing how many newborn babies I have in a month, I do not overbook so we can plan for the unplanned.
When is it best to do a newborn session?
Anywhere between 5-14 days old. I’ve had babies as old as two months old - and it is doable, but babies are not as sleepy and flexible when they’re older so the poses we can do with them are a little more limited.
Can I feed my baby during the newborn session?
Absolutely! I actually encourage the baby is fed about half-way through our photo session so he or she can stay nice and sleepy.
How long do newborn sessions last?
The session typically takes 1-2 hours.
What do I need to do before our session?
There is no need to keep baby up before, we don’t want them being overtired. Just go with their schedule, change them and feed them before I come so we can get started right away.
Why don’t you use very many props?
I feel like sometimes the baby can get “lost” in loud backgrounds, wraps, and props. I prefer a very minimalistic, clean newborn look. It draws your eyes straight to the baby, instead of everything else. I’m aware that a lot of people love props - and if that’s you, that is totally ok, but I’m probably not the right newborn photographer for you.
