Newborn

Booking & Planning

As soon as baby comes, it’s non-stop late nights and hard work for Mom and Dad. Coordinating a photo session seems like the last thing on your list of priorities. This is why I recommend booking your session at least 2-4 months in advance of your due date to make sure everything is lined up ahead of time and you don’t have to worry! Once your little bundle of joy arrives, please let me know the news. I will work closely with you or a family member to find a day and time that works for everyone. Newborns are best photographed when they are 5-12 days old.

Before the Shoot

With a new baby – everything is new! It takes time to get into a rhythm with your little angel, and predicting when nap time will happen is generally difficult. However, if you can manage to have baby fed and changed before the shoot, this will increase chances of sleep! If you have any outfits or props you’d like included in the photos, please lay them out ahead of time in a place easily accessible.

During the Shoot

The golden rule of newborn photography: babies are unpredictable! At just a few days old, a regular feeding, sleeping, and potty schedule is out of the question. We understand this, and as a result require a minimum of 3 hours blocked out for the photo session.

The Day Before

Don’t schedule vaccinations the day before your session!
Keep baby awake at least 90 min. prior to the session.
Feed baby until she is completely full.
Ensure the diaper or any clothing isn’t strapped on too tightly to avoid red marks.
Clothe baby in something easy to slip on and off without causing disturbance.
