When to book your newborn session…
The ideal time for newborn photography is when the baby is between 5-14 days old. They sleep more soundly, allowing to pose them to create the very best portraits.
You can contact us at any time during your pregnancy to give us an estimated due date. And we will pencil in 7 days after your due date.
Where your session is held…
Your newborn session will take place in the comfort of your own home. No need to pack up and leave the house with your newborn . We will bring the Newborn Studio to you!
The room will be kept at 80F for the baby’s comfort, especially if we do nude poses. The fan heater will be turned on/off as required. We use a white noise machine to help keep the baby asleep.
How long will your session take...
Usually the whole session takes 2-3 hours. It all depends on the baby. The key to a successful session is a deep sleeping baby!
Please have the pacifier, it helps a lot during the session, especially between poses. Even if your baby doesn't usually take one, please have it anyway! For breastfeeding Moms it's good to have some pumped milk in a bottle.
Schedule baby’s feeding 1-2 hours before session. Interact with your baby for at least 1-2 hours before your scheduled session to keep him/her awake. You will feed the baby right before the session while we will be setting up the “newborn studio”.
Dress your baby in comfortable clothes with button up or zip up clothing for easier transition. Please DO NOT dress the baby in anything that needs to be pulled over the head.
Our style in newborn photography is clean, timeless and minimalistic. Whites and creams are our favorite colors. And we love keeping newborn portraits simple without overpowering them with props and unnatural posing. Baskets and bowls are not our style.
