Your newborn portrait session will take place in the comfort of your home within the first 10 days following the birth. Please schedule your session 1-2 months before your anticipated due date. We’ll pick two tentative dates that will be held for you, yet are still flexible, taking into consideration your baby’s arrival may be early or two weeks late! I’ll ask you to put me on the list announcing the birth and we’ll tweak your newborn session date as needed.
I’m a mother of two children and have photographed many infants, so I understand what may be most important to you in those early days of your baby’s life. I will suggest rescheduling our session if I’m ill or if I have sick children at home. The safety of your baby is of the utmost importance to me and I will only position them in ways that are comfortable and natural for their bodies. The older the infant, the less able they are able and willing to curl up, so that is why it is so important to plan for the session in those early days.
During the consultation before the session, we’ll go over what to expect, how to prepare, and what you are planning to do with your portraits. I’ll select colors and props that align with your style and decor so that they will fit in beautifully on the walls in your home. Getting to know you and your family before the session also helps everyone to feel more at ease on the day! I want you to feel relaxed and that your baby is in good hands.
