When should I schedule my newborn session?
Before your baby is born! I only book 4 due dates for each month. This is to make sure I have enough time to fit everyone in, if several babies are born close together. Your session fee reserves your spot on my calendar.
What clothing should my newborn wear?
I mostly photograph newborns with no clothing at all. I love to be able to see the fat rolls and hair fuzz. With that said, if you have a special hat, blanket, cloth diaper, feel free to bring it along. I also have some accessories that can be used.
How should I prepare for my newborn session?
I know that newborns cannot be on a schedule, so instead of giving a hard session time, I like to give my clients a window to arrive. It’s best to try to time your arrival with a feeding. Ideally, you will try to keep your baby awake for an hour prior to your session. Then when you arrive, you can give your baby a full feeding, and he/she should be tired for a good nap to get photographed.
My son is being circumcised. When should he be photographed?
Because my style is “posed” newborn photography, I am placing babies in a variety of poses. With a sensitive area, your baby may not be comfortable in these poses. For this reason, I ask that you wait at least 5 days after the procedure to bring your son in. (Or to have the procedure after your session.)
