WHEN SHOULD I CALL TO SCHEDULE MY NEWBORN SESSION?
The sooner the better. It is so important to plan ahead. Capturing your newborn within the first two weeks is ideal to capture those sleepy, dreamy newborn images.
I take a limited amount of sessions each month and recommend calling to schedule your newborn session before your baby is born.

Once your newborn session is booked, I will pencil in your due date. Once your baby is born, we will move your appointment accordingly.

IDEAL TIME FOR YOUR NEWBORN SESSION?
Newborn babies photograph best between 6 – 10 days old. This is the ideal time as your baby is still very sleepy and enjoys those curly poses similar to the womb.

IF MY BABY IS OLDER THAN TWO WEEKS?
Don’t worry, older babies take beautiful portraits too. Contact me and I will do my best to squeeze your session into our schedule.

WHAT SHOULD BABY WEAR?
My studio is supplied with extensive newborn hats, headbands, vintage outfits which coordinate beautifully with my blankets and wraps. I recommend bringing your baby in something loose so it will be easier to undress him/her upon your arrival.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY NEWBORN SESSION?
I have prepared a detailed guide for my clients. Once your session is booked, the preparation guide will be provided to you.

WHEN SHOULD I CALL TO SCHEDULE MY MATERNITY SESSION?
The sooner the better. It is so important to plan ahead. Maternity sessions can be done outdoors or in my studio. Maternity sessions are typically done between 32 – 35 weeks. It really depends on how you are feeling and how much you are showing. It is all about the belly bump and I want to capture that for you to cherish forever!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO MY MATERNITY SESSION?
My studio is supplied with maternity gowns and fabrics available to my clients. My newborn and maternity sessions are customized so my clients do not have to worry about shopping and finding something to wear. You only need to show up for your session. Of course, you are welcome to shop for your own outfits if you choose.
