Newborn FAQ’s

How do I schedule a  session when I don’t know when my baby will be born?
No worries! I know that babies are unpredictable and will make their arrival according to their own personal time-line. I book all newborn sessions according to your due date and I only accept a limited number of sessions each month to ensure I am flexible enough to re-schedule newborn sessions if necessary.  Once you deliver, simply contact me within 48 hours so we can finalize the date & time of your Posed Newborn Session

I have booked a Lifestyle Newborn Session. When will this session take place?
With my more natural approach to newborn lifestyle sessions, your baby’s age can be anywhere from 24 hrs to 3 weeks old! This age flexibility is one of my favorite things about a natural session. It allows you the choice of capturing your baby in his/her first hours at the hospital, first days at home, OR you have the choice to wait until you are more settled in as a family and feeling a little more like yourselves before getting in front of the camera . Whichever you feels works best for your family!

How long does a typical newborn session last? 
Due to the frequent breaks needed to feed, change, sooth and get baby to fall asleep, newborn studio sessions often last longer than the average session. Please be prepared for your studio session to last anywhere between 2-3 hours.
Newborn Lifestyle Sessions typically last anything between 1-2 hours.

How should I prepare for my newborn session?
New parents often have many questions when it comes to bringing their new little one in for their Newborn Session. “What do we bring? What if I need to nurse? How do we prepare? What can we expect?” All of these questions are answered in my Newborn-Pre Session Guide which you will receive upon booking confirmation. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to call or email me.

Do we need to bring our own props to our session?
I have everything you need for your session! I spend hours sourcing, buying and hand making props, outfits, and headbands that add the perfect professional touch to your session. I have a growing collection of photography props, backgrounds, and accessories but if you have something special you would like incorporated into your session please let me know!

Can I order prints and canvasses?
Yes! After you have received your images you may choose to order any prints, canvasses, photo blocks, ect.. While you do have printing rights to the photos, some families prefer to order from me to ensure professional quality and great prices.
