NEWBORN SESSION GUIDE

Here are a few pointers for your baby's upcoming photo session...

SESSION LENGTH
Depending on your selected photo package & your little ones temperament, your baby's session will most likely be between 2-3 hours. Newborn sessions run long due to the frequent nurturing of the infant, I let baby take as many breaks as needed. Baby's comfort is most important; please plan on a long session.

DRESS COOLY
I keep my home very warm for newborn sessions, please dress accordingly so that you can be comfortable.

MINIMAL CLOTHING FOR YOUR BABY
We will be stripping your baby down, dress her/him in something that is easy to take off.

Nothing is cuter than fresh baby buns!

PACIFIER • BOTTLE
If your little one takes a pacifier, please be sure to bring it. I would suggest pumping & preparing a bottles(s) before your arrival. Having a ready to go bottle will help to reduce feeding time however breastfeeding is welcomed, whatever you & baby are most comfortable with.

GUESTS • SIBLINGS
Your hubby or family member(s) are welcome to accompany you during your session but please keep in mind that I have a small working space so I would suggest bringing only those who are necessary. Older siblings are welcome to join in if you wish to capture a few sibling shots.
I save sibling shots for last so I would suggest having your child(ren) dropped off 30 minutes prior to your sessions completion.

SLEEPY BABY
You are going to want to keep your baby awake for an hour or two prior to your session, if possible. Having a sleepy newborn makes all the difference in your sessions & images. If your little one is awake/alert during their session, it will make it much for difficult to pose your baby as nearly all poses require that your baby be asleep.

SPECIAL ITEMS
If you have a sentimental item that you wish to have incorporated into your newborn session, please feel free to bring it & I will do my best to use it.

 PROPS • WRAPS • HEADPIECES • OUTFITS ETC.
I have a fully stocked studio & I provide all of the items needed for your baby's session.

I am looking forward to working with your precious baby soon!
