When is the best time to book....
Booking early as possible is best as there are only a certain amount of newborns taken in each week and booking early secures your spot and that is one less thing you have to worry about towards the end of your pregnancy because we all know towards the end we are trying to remember everything last minute. (why do we do that lol)
A little information on newborn sessions....
All newborn sessions are done Tuesday-Friday starting at 11:30 a.m the amount of time depends on package you choose below. Summer time sessions are extremely limited. I prefer to photograph newborns 12-16 days after delivery. Keep in mind the older they get the harder it is to achieve those newborn poses. Every baby is different and will not do every single pose that is done in newborn sessions. If baby is not comfortable in certain poses I will move on to the next one keeping my newborns as comfortable as I never want my babies uncomfortable during their session. I respect that not every baby is introduced to a pacifier but during sessions they can come in handy if baby needs some extra soothing, as they are being moved around so much more than just being at home so I ask that you try to have one on hand. Please dress baby in a zipper or button outfit so we are not pulling anything over their head and try to avoid socks or anything that will leave impressions on their skin. I know must of us mommas try to keep our little ones on a feeding routine I only ask to try to adjust feedings the day of your session to where we can feed upon your arrival as it puts them in milk coma most of the time and allows them to be really sleepy. Try your best to keep them up as much as possible before session if not no worries.
I keep it quite warm so mommas dress in layers and very comfortable, if you plan on taking pictures with your baby you can change after bring those comfy clothes with you to change into once you are done. If you are taking parent/sibling shots try to avoid clothing with patterns and bright colors, solid neutral clothing is always best. I have the outfits, props, wraps and pretty much everything we need. If you'd like to incorporate anything please just let me know ahead of time so I can plan for it.You will choose two main colors and a neutral for your session. I may not have covered all info right here but if you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask. I try my absolute best to accommodate to everyone below you will find newborn packages. I look forward to working with you and your precious bundle of joy.
