When should I schedule my newborn session
Before your baby is born! It is so important to plan ahead. Capturing your newborn within the first two weeks of life, while they are still sleepy and curled up, can make all the difference in your newborn portraits. My schedule fills up about four weeks in advance, so please call to schedule your newborn appointment before your baby is born. Since we never really know when your little one will arrive, we put you on our calendar to hold a spot for you. When your baby is born, we will move your appointment accordingly. If your baby comes early or if your baby is already born, don’t panic! We always do our best to squeeze newborns into our schedule. Plus, older babies take beautiful portraits, too!
How should I prepare for my newborn session
We recommend that you bring baby to the session after an hour to two of keeping baby up and awake. This will ensure that your baby will be in a deep sleep when arriving at the studio. Sleepy babies photograph perfectly, so I will ask you to undress and swaddle your baby before the feeding so as to not disturb them by undressing them afterwards. If needed, we take several breaks for feeding your baby during the session to ensure that your baby is happy and has a full tummy. We ask that you not be too concerned with scheduled feedings during the session and that you feed your baby on demand (or when they get a bit fussy) to ensure their comfort and a smooth session.
