Newborn Session Information

Infants are best photographed within the first 5-12  days of life while they’re still super sleepy and flexible.

Preparing Your Baby:
A well fed baby is a happy sleepy baby! If you live near the studio please feed your baby prior to coming. If you live more than 45 minutes away you may want to wait and feed the baby once you arrive at the studio. Either way, please plan on bringing extra milk with you. Our sessions tend to make babies hungry and you will need to feed them to put them back to sleep.

Session Packing List:
We have baskets, blankets, and head bands. To personalize your session we recommend you pack the following:
• Blankets that are special to you (made by grandma, embroidered with baby name, matches nursery, etc.)
• Hats or booties you love
• Diaper covers
• Fun personal items that represent a hobby, favorite sports team, family heirlooms, etc.

Clothing For Parents And Siblings:
• Simple, solid colors, please avoid logos
• If you plan on getting photos with your baby, wear some neutral colors. If you are wearing, for example, a hot pink shirt, it will actually reflect those colors on your babies skin while holding them.

Clothing For Baby:
• Avoid over the head outfit choices. Zip-up or snap-up onesies and sleepers tend to be easier to manage and not leave red marks on the baby before pictures.

Other Notes
• I will have it very warm (80 -85 degrees) so just be prepared for that.
• Newborn sessions take anywhere from 2-4 hours.
