Oh Baby...

I will forever live by the idea that Newborn photos are absolutely essential for all families to have. Those first few days or weeks of life are oh so special, and they change so quickly. From capturing the adorable newborn scrunch before it's gone, to seeing their adorable sleepy faces for years to come, here's a blog on everything you need to know about a newborn session.  

We all know babies will arrive on their own accord, and because of this I only allow a limited amount of schedules per month, in order to ensure no one gets missed if the birth time isn't exactly as predicted! Newborn sessions are differently planned compared to other sessions because there are specific procedures that are different during them. Additionally, there is a specific and short timeframe to capture those cute squishy poses and receive cooperation sleepy babies. My newborn sessions are fully planned with colors, textures, and props that is special for each and every newborn. I do my best to only use the same props (such as hats, bonnets, headbands, outfits, etc.) no more than 3 times to keep my style fresh and unique. I have a fully stocked newborn prop collection that is available for use at my own discretion!

If there are any special requests I do require this information to be given well in advance of the session, in order for me to plan for those specific changes. I also do allow outside small items if you want something special incorporated into the session but it needs to be approved by myself and safe for baby to have during the session.

All you need to bring as a parent are diapers, wipes, and food for the baby! During the session I will ensure there is a space for you to feed baby as needed, and I provide a heater and soft noise machine to keep them as comfortable as possible during the session. As an added value, each newborn session booking includes a Parent Prep guide, so you will be ready to go before your session begins.

If you are debating which package you would like to book, you can find a breakdown of my current newborn packages here:

I would also like to note that I offer a variety of baby plans that grow with your child! This includes photos from fresh 48 sessions, Kindergarten, and beyond. There are many perks of booking a baby plan including a guaranteed spot, discounted price if booked, split payment option, and parents can be included in every session for no additional charge! You can even customize your package by adding a "Baby Plan" or "Grow With Me" plans to already booked sessions. I would be honored to be the photographer you trust to grow with and love your family as I provide you with memories to last a life time. For more info on baby plans visit here
