Newborn Session FAQ
When should I book my newborn session ?
I recommend booking your newborn session by the end of your second trimester. An approximate due date is all I need to reserve your spot on my calendar. When baby is born we can change the session date if necessary.
When should my newborn session take place ?
Newborn sessions are best when done in the first 6-12 days. In this first week or so baby stays very sleepy and will stay curled up in those adorable newborn poses. As time passes babies tend to stay awake longer and stretch those little bodies making it more difficult to get those shots.
Approximately how long will my newborn session take ?
Newborn sessions can take anywhere from 2-4 hours. I try to keep them under 3 hours but every baby is different. Some babies need more feeding time or take longer to settle to get the photos I have planned out.
Do I need any special clothing/items for the session ?
Since the session will be mostly of your new bundle of joy wrapped in blankets and wraps, no special clothing is needed. I also supply lots of headbands and hats for baby to wear. If you have a special blanket or keepsake that you would like in some of the photographs, please let me know in advance. If possible, mention these items in our pre session phone call so that I can prepare colors to match.
Can we have a photo of the baby taken with siblings ?
Of course ! Big brothers and sisters are encouraged to be a part of the session !!
Please ask any other questions in our pre session phone call.
