Day Of The Session: When I arrive, I will walk around your home and scout out the best lit areas to take the pictures. I often use the living room, masterbed room, and nursery for photos.
Your Baby: Your newborn is perfect just the way he or she is. I don’t try and make babies sleep or place them in unnatural poses. I recommend feeding the baby as much as he or she wants about fteen minutes prior to my arrival. Newborn sessions can take some time, that is okay. Your baby is perfect as he or she is. I do not have any expectation on how the baby should behave (alert or asleep). We let the baby guide the session. What is important is that we capture this beautiful time in your life.
- Baby: I suggest you have your newborn in a simple onesie that is form fitting with no graphics or words. This usually means you will need a preemie or newborn sized onesie. Also, please gather a few favorite swaddle blankets for baby to be wrapped in if you want to incorporate them in your images.
- Family: I recommend comfortable and easy, neutral colored clothing with no words, logos or graphics. What is most important is that you are comfortable. I am happy to discuss wardrobe with you further if you would like. Just let me know. You can also choose an outfit from my client wardrobe for the session:
