Newborn Session FAQ

HOW DO I BOOK A NEWBORN SESSION?

Once you’ve decided to book I’ll mark your due date in my calendar. When your baby arrives just send me a a quick note and we’ll set it up for the next available day!

WHERE WILL THE SESSION TAKE PLACE?

All my newborn shoots take place in the comfort of your home.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO HAVE MY NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHED?

Timing is important when it comes to newborn photography.  Sessions go much smoother when the baby is within 10 day of birth when they’re still in the super sleepy stage. They are also very flexible at this age and enjoy being curled up and cozy while asleep just as they were in utero.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

A newborn shoot can take 2-4 hours. There are ususally lots of breaks for feeding and cuddles.

WILL YOU BRING PROPS?

I will provide all the props we need. However if there are things around you home that can be used I love to incorporate that as well! I like to use natural props like baskets, crates, blankets, nothing overly ellaborate. I’ll bring a few hats/headbands to choose from as well and feel free to order something special if you like!

DO YOU BRING STUDIO LIGHTS AND BACKDROPS?

I don’t use studio lights. Instead I use windows in your home as my natural light source. The backdrop will be rooms in your home as well. Often the master bedroom, nursery and living room. Don’t worry about having your house spic and span! I know things can be chaotic when you first bring your baby home:) We’ll tidy up and move things around as needed. The majority of homes have enough natural light, however if you find your home very dark during the day this type of session might not be the best for you. If you’re not sure I’m happy to stop by and check out your home prior to the session to make sure it’s suitable.

WHAT IS A LIFESTYLE SESSION?

A lifestyle newborn shoot focuses more on the interaction between the new baby and his/her family and surroundings and is less about getting the perfect pose. Babies will be clothed or in a wrap for the majority of the session. I like to do combination of posed shots of the baby as well as lifestyle shots with parents and any new big brothers/sisters, furry friends or all of the above!
