The earlier the better with newborn sessions. We advise parents to book their sessions within the first 2 weeks, that way the baby is still sleepy and poseable for the session.
We always have a photographers assistant on hand for our newborn sessions. The assistant will be there to help pose the baby and set up shots.
All our newborn photography takes place in-studio. We keep the studio extra warm during newborn sessions to ensure that the baby is comfortable.
We have plenty of different backgrounds, floors, props, baskets and hats for you to choose from. If you have something special that you would like to incorporate into the session, bring it in and we will be sure to include it.
We always suggest that you nurse your newborn just before your appointment. This usually helps to settle the newborn when they arrive and allows them to sleep. You may need to nurse while in the studio, and for your convenience, we set up a privacy area where you will be able to do so.
Try to plan the session time around your babies nap time as this will ensure that your newborn is tired and stays sleeping during the session. We understand that this is easier said than done as newborns are often not in a full routine.
Be sure to bring extra diapers, warm clothes and soothers to keep your newborn comfortable.
Mom and Dad know best when it comes to keeping a baby soothed and comfortable. If you feel something is bothering your baby (ie, the lights in the studio, the white noise machine, etc), let us know and we will be sure to accommodate.
We book for two hours as we want to make sure to have plenty of time if your baby needs to nurse, cuddle and get comfortable with the studio surroundings.
We will always have our photographer accompanied by an assistant who will be responsible for handling and posing your newborn in a variety of poses. If you prefer to handle and pose your newborn yourself, that can be facilitated,
All this is typical and we will provide privacy to the parents to get your baby back into a comfortable, sleepy state.
This is ok, we are able to get beautiful photos of the newborns even when they are awake.
We make sure that your newborn is warm and comfortable. Some photographers remove the diapers for photos, however we generally do not as we prefer to put on a diaper cover instead.
Our studio is fully heated and set at a warm and cozy temperature for newborn sessions.
We gladly welcome any special items, costumes, clothing pieces or ideas that you would like to incorporate into the photo session. If you have anything special you would like for the photo session please let us know ahead of time as it will give us time to prepare.
