Session Day

Session Day!

All newborn sessions generally start at 9:30.  This is when everyone is a little more refreshed and also helps to make sure baby hasn't had a full day of being overstimulated.

Based on the session type  you choose, your session will last between 1.5 - 3.5 hours.  That includes breaks to feed baby, diaper/outfit changes, extra time for older sibling shots as well as setup/tear down time for studio style wrapped images.

A newborn session with me is a mix of relaxed, posed and unposed images.  Always showing the connection between between parents, siblings and your sweet newborn!

Newborn Session FAQ's

When should I book a newborn session?  Sometime within the second trimester is an ideal time to book your session.  This will typically ensure availability!

How do I schedule a session when I don't know when the baby will be born?  Such a common question!  Once you have signed a contract and a paid deposit, I use your due date as a place holder in my calendar.  Once the baby arrives we will schedule your actual session date.

What should I wear for a newborn Session?  I always suggest neutral clothing.  No logos or busy designs.  We want all of the attention on the baby!

What do I need for the wrapped images?  Absolutely nothing!  I get input from you prior to your session on requested colors and props.  I provide wraps as close as possible to your requests along with any must have props!

When do newborn sessions take place?  Newborn sessions take place within the first two weeks of brining baby home.  Sessions generally take place Monday - Friday and are done first thing in the morning as everyone is usually more refreshed!

What COVID-19 safety measured do you take during a newborn session?  Along with being fully vaccinated I also wear a mask the entire time I am in your home.
