WHAT TO EXPECT

Newborn sessions MUST be scheduled within the first 14 days of life. However, the BEST time is between 3-7 days after their arrival. We’ll be moving them around and scrunching them into those sweet sleepy newborn poses, so we want to make sure they’re sleepy enough to allow us to handle them.

The majority of our newborn sessions take place in your home. If the weather is warm enough and you’re comfortable with the idea, we can take the session outdoors.

In order to find the best source of natural light, we ask that you open all of the blinds and curtains in your home prior to our arrival. Sessions are normally done mid-morning to late-afternoon when window lighting is as its best.

We recommend that you keep your home a bit warmer than normal during the session. (Like a toasty 80 degrees or so.)

A well fed baby is a happy baby! Please feed and burp baby right before our session to ensure a happy, sleepy (“milk drunk”) baby.

Newborn sessions can last anywhere from 2-4 hours. It all depends on baby’s mood and willingness to sleep. Unfortunately…this isn’t something we can predict!  And if  sleep doesn’t happen, that’s okay! Wide-eyed newborn photos are beautiful too.

Relax. We’re pretty comfortable holding and posing newborns. Your baby is in safe hands, we promise!
Feel free to rest and leave the room for a bit if you’d like.

Your baby is going to be in the buff for the majority of this shoot. Please don’t panic if your baby decides to use our blankets (or us) as his/her own personal potty. This is natural and we expect it! 

Your baby’s safety comes first! If there is ever a point where you become uncomfortable, just let us know!
