- Frequently Asked Questions -

When should I schedule my Newborn Session?

It's really never too early to schedule your session. Sessions are booked based upon your due date and are not set in stone until your baby arrives. Once your baby is here it is best to have your session booked within the first 10 days of life - in my opinion, days 6 or 7 make for the very best photos.

How much time should I allow for my Newborn Session?

Newborn Sessions generally take three to four hours, depending on your baby. We take many breaks for feeding, changing, cuddling, etc. and each new shot is set up with great care for your baby's safety, warmth and comfort.

How much room do you need? How can I prepare my home for the session?

I work with all natural light and never use a flash or lighting equipment with babies so I don't need much space at all. As long as you can provide some open space near a window that gets good light, I can take care of the rest. 

Also, it is very important that your home is warm to the point of being HOT! This will make sure that your baby is nothing but comfortable during his/her session. I have a heating pad and a space heater that I bring with me as well. 

How can we prepare our baby?

Please have your baby's diaper changed and ready to be fed at the time of my arrival. While you are feeding I can take a look around to find the best light and set up our first shot. When you are done your baby should be nice a sleepy and ready to get started. 

How can we prepare ourselves?

I strongly encourage parents to include themselves in the session. The emotion and beauty that can be captured is astonishing. If you will be posing with your baby please be camera ready upon my arrival. Photos with the parents will be taken during the first 30 minutes of the session. I will generally photograph from the waist up so it is very important that your shirt be light in color (preferably white) and solid, no patterns please. Mom, if possible please wear a white tank top with straps that can be pulled down and hidden and please keep jewelry to a minimum; wedding rings and stud earrings only. Also light makeup and freshly painted nails help as well.

Are prints or digital images included in my Newborn Session price?

Prints and digital images are sold separately. Please click here to view the Newborn Print Packages or click here to view the A La Carte print prices.  

Do I provide the props or do you?

I have some props to choose from and they will all be with me when I arrive for your session. Blankets, wraps, hats and headbands. My sessions are focused on your baby so I do not have baskets, bowls, etc.  I have a very specific style that I am drawn to but please feel free to have your own props as well.
