Sessions usually take about forty-five minutes to two hours. A newborn is typically longer than the rest.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR FOR OUR PHOTOS?
This is my favorite part of any photo shoot! I love dressing my own little girl so I have a whole rack of girl clothing available for use. I'm working on the boy clothing.
Think about bold and bright colors. Add texture to a photo by layering clothing and adding accessories.
Bring your closet and we will play dress up!
We all have our own personal style so if your style isn't mine, just be you!
Bring any accessories that you have: hats, boots, scarves, blankets, etc.

WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MY NEWBORN PHOTO SESSION?
Once you know your due date, email me and let me know so I can plan accordingly.
Contact me once your baby is born and we will schedule from there.
Newborns are usually shot within the first 5-10 days so they will sleep.
Newborns are shot mostly naked so bring them well fed and dressed in something easy to take off. Bring a pacifier if baby will take one. Also, if baby will take a bottle with breast milk or formula bring one because it's faster. Plan on your baby peeing and maybe pooping. It happens! I don't care. Bring an extra blanket, diapers, and wipes.
Newborn shoots typically take longer than other shoots due to cuddling and feeding baby so plan accordingly. If husband is coming let him know that it might be two hours so he can either bring something to do or drive separate.
WHAT IF MY CHILD DOESN'T BEHAVE?
Sometimes kids have a bad day just like us. No big deal, we will just reschedule. Bring things that make them happy: any snacks or toys they love.
HOW DO I SCHEDULE?
Send me an email letting me know what week you would like your pictures taken and I will let you know what I have available.
