before your session
Feed baby prior to my arrival, and try to keep baby awake. This will help ensure more success in capturing those squishy, sleepy newborn photos!
Turn up your thermostat to 75 degrees and prepare to be warm. I'll also be bringing a space heater if we need a little extra to get your little one sleeping.
I'll do a walk through of your home prior to starting as I want to find the best light and showcase the most fun and interesting areas of your home. And don't worry -- your home doesn't have to be spic and span!
Sessions last at least 2 hours. There is no rush. We go with the flow and take breaks often to allow time for feeding, burping, diaper changes, and soothing baby.
flexibility is key.
Newborns are unpredictable. Sometimes they sleep really well and sometimes they don't. Sometimes all they want to do is eat! So my point is, your baby is in charge and we have to roll with the punches. If he or she is really cranky for some reason, we can take a few photos of toes and hands, then swaddle them up and soothe them. Dad/partner can hold them and we can get a quick photo of baby's cowlick, even if he's crying. Then we will pause and wait for baby to fall asleep and move on. Please do not let these situations stress you. It is very normal, and expected actually. We will get beautiful photos you will love.
