Before Your Session
The best time to book your newborn session is during your pregnancy. At this time, we will schedule your session with a tentative date based on your expected due date. A non-refundable deposit is also due to secure the date with the balance due by the day of your session. Once your baby has arrived, please contact me so that a definite date can be scheduled. The ideal time to photograph your baby is between 6-14 days. During this time, they are nice and sleepy so I am able to capture those beautiful curly poses. Each of my newborn sessions are thorougly planned and organized prior to your arrival so all of the attention can be placed with your baby. All props, blankets and accessories are provided.
During Your Session
My sessions have a relaxed, unhurried pace to keep baby calm, happy, and safe. Your session can be 1.5 – 3 hours depending on the collection chosen and the baby. Your baby sets the pace with plenty of time for quieting, soothing, diaper changes, feeding, and cuddling. I work with an assistant to have an extra set of hands for each session. This allows you to be able relax in the lounge area of my open floor plan studio making baby never out of site. The studio will be very warm to keep baby comfortable, so dressing yourself in layers is a good idea.
After Your Session
I am just as anxious to see edited pictures of your baby as you are so you can expect a sneak peek picture within a day or two. Three weeks after your session you will receive the entire collection of your images. They will be delivered to you via PASS digital downloads. Through PASS you will be able to download your images as well as share them with family and friends. Along with your digital downloads you will receive a print release and a recommendation of a professional printing lab.
