Congratulations on the arrival of your little one! Sweet, sleepy newborns change so quickly and photographing them at this time of their lives makes for wonderful memories. It is preferred to photograph them within their first 3 weeks of life before they start becoming more alert which makes for a more lengthy and challenging session.
Due to the nature of newborns, I only book newborn sessions between 9:00am and 1:00pm. After 1:00pm, newborns typically become more alert and aware of their surroundings which makes it very difficult to photograph them. It's preferred that they are sleeping through the session to capture as many different poses as possible in the alotted timeframe.
All newborn wraps, attire and props will be provided for the session. If there are any meaningful props that you would like to have incorporated, please speak with me ahead of time so I can ensure the proper attire to match the props.
The time period immediately prior to arriving at the studio is probably the most important. This is where you want prepare your newborn for a sleepy session. Depending on your driving time to the studio, you will want to feed your baby approximately 30 minutes prior to your scheduled session time. This gives the newborn enough time to settle their stomach and doze off into a nice deep sleep. Here are a few more items to remember to bring:
