We strive to make your newborn shoot as simple and worry free as possible. For the best results during your session please avoid feeding your newborn for two hours prior to the shoot. Please feed them once you have arrived so that they will be comfortable, calm, and at maximum relaxation for their photo session.
Tips For Mom
Try not to feed your baby till you get to the shoot or at the last minute on the way here that way they are fast asleep, looking angelic and ready for photos. Try to relax during the photo shoot and enjoy the process. We will all work together to make sure your baby is as comfortable as possible when being photographed. Features change slightly after the first twelve days of life, so try to schedule your shoot within that timeframe to capture their unique, early-life stage. If permitted, we like to photograph mom and dad with the baby as well, so keep that in mind. Are you worried about hair and make up? We can help you with that! Lets be sure to chat on the phone and make sure we have a plan of action for photoshoot day.
In Home Newborn Photography
If you do not want to travel to our studio we bring our photo set up to you. We can bring out backdrops and lights or create a more lifestyle type shoot depending on your preference. Don’t worry about any mess or shortage of space at your home since the shoot does not require much space.
While we have some items such as wraps, blankets and backdrops it is a good idea to bring things like blocks, scarves, flower petals, stuffed animals, comfortable blankets, baskets, hats, or anything sentimental for your baby are great ideas for what to bring to the the shoot. Bring more outfits than you need so we can choose the best ones together.
