I prefer to photograph newborns when they are about a week old. Anywhere from 5-14 days old is when they are still super sleepy and bendy. I encourage you to book your session while you are pregnant to reserve availability.
The newborn session takes about two hours to photograph. I have hats, headbands, blankets and other accessories. If you have a special hat, accessory or family heirloom, be sure to bring that to the shoot. I will keep the baby naked for the entire session. Outfits tend to bunch up and look awkward in photos. I will also have a space heater going to keep things nice and toasty! No need to worry about your babe getting cold.
And yes, your little mini will pee on me or worse…and it is completely okay! As long as we get beautiful photos for you to cherish, I will take pee and poo any day!
I work around the baby’s schedule so please don’t stress about time. The session will also include family portraits for up to four people. Please add an additional $50 for each additional sibling. Moms & Dads – please have simple black or white shirts for the session if possible.
