Newborn sessions will take anywhere from 1-2 hours to insure we capture the best photos possible. Photos are best when taken up to 14 days after birth. During these first 14 days your baby will sleep and snuggle for the session as they are still use to being in the cradle position. Your session should be scheduled for the babies best nap time as we get much better results with a sleeping newborn.
You will not need to bring any baby outfits to your session. If you have a favorite prop or theme you're looking for be sure to talk to us ahead of time so we can properly prepare. Most photographs will be of your baby in the buff, however, we do have a variety of newborn accessories in the studio if that is a look you prefer. Your baby will also have accidents during the session. We know this and are prepared for clean up. All of our props and blankets after washed after each session to ensure a nice clean environment for your baby.
One of the most important parts of a newborn session is a sleepy baby! To help ensure your baby is asleep during their session please do not feed before coming coming to the studio. We highly recommend feeding your baby once you have arrived at the studio. There are private changing rooms to be used at your leisure so your baby can fall asleep right when it's time to start the session. Also please try not to have your little one nap before the session, even on the car ride here. We know this is very hard, but it will make for a happy sleepy baby during the session and amazing photographs as a result!
