Preparing for your newborn session


To prepare for your newborn photography session.

Newborn sessions should be done 5-10 days old. Its best to contact me a month or 2 before the arrival just to touch base with me and check availability. Once the baby is born email me 1-2 days after the birth to get on the calendar.

Studio sessions: Bring at least 10 diapers, plenty of wipes, if you have bought something specifically for the session please bring it. Enough formula if bottle feeding. Blue jeans and black shirts are good to wear.  Please allow extra time for you to get ready so you are not late to the session. I do not give extra time for being late. The session is 2hrs.

In home session: Tidy up your living room and master bedroom. These 2 rooms as well as the baby’s room are most likely the rooms I will use most for pictures.

Best advice I can give you is to have no stress that day. I feel babies do better when everyone involved is so care free and stress free. I have had babies cry the whole session and babies that don’t want to do anything but be held, we are on the baby’s schedule and I only do what they allow me to do but still capturing sweet pictures.
