Newborn Session Information:

When and Where?

Book early! I offer a limited number of sessions per month to ensure I can give the highest amount of attention and quality to each family. Of course, we can’t always pinpoint a day because most babies come when they’re ready- but we will schedule based on your due date and adjust as needed. When you deliver, give me a call and we’ll nail down our plan! If you have an induction or c-section scheduled, we will be able to go ahead and pick an exact date/time for your photos.

The best time to photograph a newborn is within the first 2-3 weeks of life. This gives you a bit of time at home to get settled. It is important that the session takes place before 2-3 weeks old so that we are able to capture the tiny, curly, sleepy stage that passes so quickly. Babies over 2-3 weeks old sometimes become more particular- not sleeping as much, sometimes a little more fussy and often starting to get a little baby acne. However, if you’ve already delivered and your baby is under a month, don’t hesitate to contact me- though I’m often booked weeks in advance I do my best to fit last minute calls in as well.

Sessions take place on weekday mornings in my studio on Wynnton Road. There, I have everything needed for your session- blankets, baskets, accessories, etc .

The day of your session

For newborns, I usually plan to spend 1.5 –  3 hours with you, depending on the cooperation of the baby- also allowing time for feeding breaks, diaper changes, and comforting. Siblings are always welcomed. If you, the parents, would like to be photographed with your baby, I usually suggest that you wear simple or solid colored shirts. This looks the best as it is timeless, not taking any attention away from the connection between parent and baby. Clothing is not needed for the baby, as I do all shots of the baby using blanket wraps, etc. You are welcome to bring one outfit if desired.

After your session

My goal is to have your proofs ready as quickly as possible- within 2 weeks at the most. Proofs are quick-edits which are cropped, color corrected, etc. Blemishes and other imperfections will be touched up after you place your order. Proofs will be shown in a beautiful custom slideshow in a studio ordering session. These take place with my assistant, Cassie. Methods of payment accepted: cash, checks, and credit cards (via paypal), as well as Paypal Credit (previously Bill Me Later). Your order will be ready for pickup within 2-3 weeks, with the exception of specialty items which sometimes take a bit longer.
