Newborn Session Prep!


I get the question a lot… "what do I bring? when do we schedule pictures? what do you provide? will my baby get to eat during pictures?". I'm hoping this will answer all your questions, but it may not. If you do have any other questions feel free to use the contact tab and send me a message.




Scheduling: 

Please call me the day you have your baby or the day after so we can schedule your session within the 4-10 day range. I will schedule newborns who are up to 14 days old and newborns older than 14 days who have been in the NICU. But where possible I do recommend the 4-10 day range because they sleep longer and are more easily posed therefore making it so you receive more photos back. 

About your newborn session:
  • ·      Typically they last 2-3 hours
  • ·      There will be time for 1-2 feedings in the session as needed

Preparation before you come:

  • ·      Try to feed your baby right before you come if possible
  • ·      Keep your baby awake the hour before you session if you are able (sometimes its hard, don’t stress this one).
  • ·      Please come comfortable! You have a newborn in your home which means you have been up all night for a number of days now. No need to get ready to come for pictures. I always dress comfortable as well. (unless you have chosen to be in pictures… then you want to come ready for those

What to bring:
  • 5-6 extra diapers
  • feeding supplies (nursing cover, bottles, formula)
  •  burp cloth
  • binky
  • waterbottle for you and snacks (you can totally snack during pictures and you may need to especially if you are nursing)
  • baby brush if baby has enough hair to fix :)
  • any headbands you love for girls, or bow ties for boys
  • any sentimental items you want in photos
  • Bring both wedding rings if you would like photos with them
  • black shirt for dad if you have chosen to do parent photos

What I will have for you at the session:
  • ·      fabric and vinyl backdrops
  • ·      baskets, buckets
  • ·      cheese cloth wraps
  • ·      hats for boys and girls
  • ·      headbands, tutus, and pearl necklaces for girls
  • ·      pant sets and overalls boys
