newborn photography

scheduling

We recommend that you schedule your newborn session PRIOR to your baby’s birth to ensure a spot on our calendar. Contact us during your second trimester and we’ll pencil you in.
Then, shoot us an email soon after you deliver so we can arrange a time for the session.

Newborn sessions MUST be scheduled within the first 10 days of life. However, the BEST time is between 3-7 days after their arrival. We’ll be moving them around and scrunching them into those sweet sleepy newborn images, so we want to make sure they’re sleepy enough to allow us to handle them. Somewhere around day 8 they discover the joy that is stretching, newborn acne and colic is likely to flare up. For those reason is best to photograph them as early as possible.

how long will my session last?

Sessions typically last 60-120 mins. I make sure there is plenty of time for short breaks, nursing and diaper changes. I recommend parents to dress on comfortable outfits as the studio will be warm and all set for your baby.I encourage parents to take this time to relax, take a nap, write thank you cards or catch up on emails. During a quite and and calm session, I will be able to capture stunning and sweet moments that will become beautiful pieces of art.

what to expect in studio ?

I mostly photograph newborns naked or wrapped, so no need to worry about outfits as they don’t really fit properly.

Props:  I have a small selection of hats, wraps, headbands, buckets bowls, backdrops.  You are also, of course, welcome to use any of your own props. Look for items with texture and color to help make your images unique. Please let me know if you plan to bring a prop, there are props that I like to stay away from because they may not be safe or will not photograph well, which interrupts the creative process.  I encourage parents to bring and hand it to me before the session starts  Keepsake items like a quilt or knitted hats are great.

Family and Siblings are welcome to have a few shots with baby, but it is recommended that young siblings only stay for a short time if possible.  It is important that we have a calm and relaxing environment for baby and sometimes the studio is a challenging place for toddlers for a long period of time. Siblings and family photos will be taken at the end of the session. For family and siblings outfits I recommend neutrals, creams and soft pastel colors as they always looks calm and sweet. No bright and bold colors.

after the session and ordering

After your session, I will carefully select the best  images for the viewing session. I will compare images and narrow down to the  best based on facial expressions, posing, lighting and sharpness.

At the end of our session, we will book a second date for you to come back to my home studio for the viewing session. The viewing session will be an emotional and personal experience, you will be able to select your favorite images to become art pieces for your home, office, and for family and friends. I will go over packages, products details  and help you create a beautiful display of your images.

After the order is placed, I’ll finalized editing and send the order to the lab for printing. Your order will be done in approximately 2-3 weeks. Digitals will be delivered at the time you pick up your prints.
