NEWBORN
The birth of a child is one of the most memorable events in a person's life.  Having six children of our own, we know how important it is to capture special moments to cherish for life.

 

FIRST THINGS FIRST
Your life as you know it is about to change forever.  You will have a new normal and will at times become busy and distracted.  Therefore, we recommend scheduling your newborn session before baby's arrival.  Contact us at the beginning of your third trimester and we will pencil in an appointment based on baby's due date.  If we are available and you live within 50 miles, we would be honored to make a visit to the hospital as well for a few hospital newborn shots to add to the session.  Once baby arrives, just send us message asap and we will ink in a date.

TIMING
Babies are boss and timing is everything.  Newborn sessions need to be scheduled within the first two weeks of life.  That's 14 days, however, the first week is the BEST time.  We will be posing them in a variety of positions and they are still extremely pliable and sleepy that first week.  After the two week time frame, they are moving too much to capture those sweet sleepy poses easily.

LOCATION
All of our newborn sessions are done at our in home studio.  We have plenty of props for those precious shots, however, we encourage you to bring that special item that you might want to use for a pose.  We will do our best to incorporated it into the session.

PREPARATION
There are a few things that you can do to help with the session ahead of time.  Try not to put anything with tight fitting elastic on baby before the session.  Those items leave red marks on baby's skin that don't look good in pictures.  Make sure to keep baby awake as long as possible before the session.  Bring a pacifier or three if baby takes one.  We also encourage feedings during the session if necessary to calm baby.
