You want to have your newborn appointment scheduled for your baby's first 2 weeks (day 5-14). Ideally schedule your session while you’re still in the hospital to give you one less thing on your plate when you get home. Sessions are easiest in this window but we can do it as late as 3 months if needed. 

Newborn sessions typically take 2-3 hours. There is plenty of time for feeding and snuggling. 

This is a full service, boutique photography experience. I keep repeating it because it’s true- you just have to show up! There is a client closet full of outfits, props and comfort items to make sure you, your infant (and any siblings) have anything you may need. 

Neutral, organic props are my specialty. Every session will also have tailored setups to choose from depending on color of choice or size of baby. All textiles are purchased from cruelty-free handmade vendors only. 

Your baby guides the session. Go with what makes them happy. Pose they don’t like? Try a new one. Cranky? There’s plenty of time built in to give them the love and comfort they may need at the moment. There’s also a baby shusher, vibrating mat and low lighting to help the baby stay calm and happy.  

As a newborn photographer, I work with small children on a daily basis and know the various temperaments they bring. I have created a small play area for them to entertain themselves in (new-to-them toys are always the best toys!) and you are encouraged to bring along any additional toys or electronics you think will help hold their attention. The family photographs at this time are usually some of the most precious and shouldn’t be missed!
