Newborn Session Info

You have booked a newborn session. Now what?

Don't worry, there isn't much for you to do, I will take care of everything.

I provide all props, backdrops, bonnets, headbands. Just let me know what colors you prefer & if you have any theme, hobby or specific item you want incorporated. If you book in advance & I don't have something to fit your needs I will order it. I can do a rustic theme with antlers & furs, or something simple with minimal props. I have props if you are having a rainbow baby. Let me know if you have a nursery theme, hobby or even your job incorporated. I have every color in the rainbow, floral, stripes or solids. Just let me know what you like & I will style your session around it! I am so excited to make your session match your style. If you have a prop or outfit to bring to the session just let me know ahead of time please.

When you book your session I will put your due date in my book. Then once baby arrives let me know within 24 hours & we will get your session scheduled. I do newborn sessions when baby is about 10 days. Newborn sessions are scheduled on weekday mornings. Occasionally I have an available Saturday morning. 

On the day of your session keep baby awake for an hour or 2 before you leave. Dress baby in something with buttons or a zipper that won't have to go over their head, no onesies. Feed baby last thing right before you get in the car. It's OK if baby falls asleep on the car ride, there's no way to keep them awake then. 

Depending on which session you chose, the wrapped or the full your session will be 1-4 hours & my studio will be warm so dress for that. If you added family poses to your session I recommend light colored neutrals with little to no pattern. I have wraps for baby so don't buy baby an outfit for family poses. 

Let me know if you have any questions! I am so excited to capture your new little one!
