It is never too early to book your newborn session! Newborn sessions are my priority but my calendar fills quickly. It is best to contact me in your second trimester or early third trimester to be placed on my newborn calendar to ensure a spot.
For a successful newborn session, please plan for your session to take place during the first 5-14 days after birth to help ensure a sleepy, flexible baby. When you book your session, I will tentatively plan for it to take place shortly after your due date (babies sometimes come early or late so I always maintain flexibility in my scheduling to accommodate that). Once your baby is born, please notify me from the hospital and I will work with you to pick a date within two weeks of birth for your little one's first photo shoot. Newborn sessions typically last from three to four hours to ensure we have time for multiple setup changes, feedings, and settling.
*$199 plus tax covers the time and talent of the photographer--an in person, email, or over the phone pre-session consultation, up to 4 hours of shooting time at my home studio, and a Zoom or in-person reveal session where you will make your product choices from your gallery. Print Products/Digital images are sold separately. EVERYTHING is provided. Parents and siblings may be included in a few shots for an additional $65 fee.
WHAT TO BRING
Don’t forget to bring diapers, wipes, burp-cloths, a cozy blanket to keep the baby warm during set changes, a pacifier, and anything you will need to feed the baby when needed (outlets are available if you're pumping!). I suggest bringing a change of clothes for yourself if you have added on family images just in case baby gets "fluids" on you!
You are welcome to discuss any sentimental props you’d like to include in your session but it is unnecessary to bring anything--I have a huge selection of items to use for your session.
Don’t forget those little details! Make sure parent’s hands are manicured nicely if they will be in any shots, etc.
