It is our goal that you come into your session feeling comfortable and prepared. We will be working together to capture some of the most special moments in your life! From baby bump to tiny fingers and toes to baby's first birthday, we take the utmost care to make each and every session a personal and memorable experience.
It is best to try and schedule your newborn session 2-3 months before baby arrives. This will ensure you a date on my calendar, as I only offer a limited number of sessions each month. We like to see baby between 8 and 12 days old. Maternity sessions are best scheduled between 34 and 36 weeks. Prior to your session date, we will have a phone consultation to discuss your vision and the images that you hope to come away from your session with. Please take a moment to browse the portrait galleries and blog before this consultation to help really get a feel for the looks that you love!
The Newborn Session
We will advise that baby gets a little extra awake time prior to the session and is fed as close to the session time as possible. We try to keep the space as warm as possible, due to this, we come dressed for a warm few hours and suggest you do too! Session times can vary anywhere from 1-3 hours, all depending on baby. The easiest way to ensure a sleepy baby is to keep them warm and be willing to feed them as needed. We have a variety of backdrops, bowls, props, posing blankets, wraps, hats and headbands! You will not need to bring a thing, unless you have something personal that you'd like incorporated into the session.
The images from your session will be culled down to the best of the best. Within two weeks, you will receive a gallery of beautifully retouched high resolution images to download and share with your family and friends. This gallery will also offer the option to order high quality prints from my professional lab. Please don't forget to back up and print, print, PRINT! There is nothing like digging through prints from years back and sharing memories.
