What to Expect at your Newborn Session
There is no need for you to clean your house! I’m a mom to three kids and completely understand that life gets messy sometimes. All I need is a cleared area (approximately x by x feet) to set up my gear; that could be a dining room with the table moved off to the side or a living /family room with a coffee table moved. I will need access to one outlet.
It will take me about 20 minutes to bring in my gear and set up. If it works for you, that may be a good time to feed the baby, so that he/she might be sleepy for the photos.
If there are siblings, I will try to take those photos first. I can also take some lifestyle photos at this time, in the nursery or any room you choose that has good window light.
When taking the ‘baby only’ images on the beanbag, I will start off by wrapping the baby; this helps to keep the baby warm and sleepy. After that, I will transition to the props; some with the baby wrapped and others in some outfits. I will bring some outfits with me. If you have one special outfit or item that you would like to see in a photo, please let me know.
My absolute priority is the safety of your child. I will only put them in safe poses, with either mom or dad as a spotter. Some of the trendy photos you see are clearly unnatural poses for a newborn. Although some of them can be done safely, I will not use the pose if I am not comfortable with it. As I said, the comfort and safety of your newborn is of the utmost importance.
Once all the images are done, it will take me about 20 minutes to pack up my gear.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions! I can’t wait to work with you!
