Newborns up to 3 months
Be especially careful with babies about what type of materials you are dressing them (and yourself) in. There are some super cute outfits out there, but if they irritate the baby's skin at all, we will have an unhappy baby on our hands.
When it comes to my photo sessions, I always try to work with the motto "less is more." We don't want to pull the focus from the main subject of the session, the baby! If at all possible, naked baby photos are always natural and beautiful. Feel free to bring wraps and blankets with you to cover your baby!
For babies it’s best to keep it simple. Babies’ clothes never tend to fit quite right so go for something snug fitting (cute onesies/ sweatsuits) or opt for naked photos (if the weather allows). You don’t want anything that will ride up and cover the baby’s face or make them uncomfortable.
Please make sure your baby is well fed. If you need to take a break at all during the session to feed or change your baby that is not a problem! That is why I've made the newborn sessions a bit longer than a typical session, because our tiny ones need extra time and attention. You may also bring outfit changes, as many as you can fit into the session time is fine with me, but keep in mind that babies don't always love being changed so it all depends on how they are during their session. If your baby has older siblings, you may bring them along to work into a few images! It's always sweet to see how these little ones interact with each other!
Please feel free to bring props to your session. I am always happy to work anything into your photos that may be important to your family. Anything with your baby's name on it or any objects that personalize your shoot are always welcomed and encouraged! I will have different baskets and blankets to use but if you have any that you would like to use, again, bring them along!
With your session you can expect 10-20 edited images (based on how the session goes). These images will be uploaded to a password protected online gallery for you to view and download to print! I try to make sessions as laid back and comfortable as possible. Please don't be afraid to snuggle and be affectionate with your newest addition.
