Newborn sessions are customized to accommodate your baby's needs and generally last 2 hours.
This session will be done in the comfort of your own home using natural light, or if the weather is warm enough at an outdoor location.
Newborns are extremely sleepy and much easier to pose for photographs in the first 2 weeks of life. For that reason I recommend booking the session while you are still pregnant.
On the day of the session we want to make sure they are well fed and sleepy; also be careful not to fasten their diaper too tightly the morning of the shoot to avoid diaper marks possibly appearing on their skin.
For clothing, less is best with new arrivals. They photograph beautifully nude, all bundled up or slightly wrapped in blankets. I have a collection of hats, headbands, blankets, cocoons, and baskets for our session so you don't have to supply anything! Mom and Dad are welcome to join in photos with baby, and I may even use parents as a backdrop - so if you have black pants and a black shirt you may want to get them handy!
Please have a boppy pillow and a hair dryer on hand. The boppy helps with posing your baby to better capture that beautiful face, and the hair dryer is a combination white-noise maker and portable space heater all in one!
