When do newborn sessions take place?
Newborn sessions are scheduled for when your baby is between 4-7 days old preferably, but can be up to 10 days depending on schedules. Newborns at this age are more likely to curl up and remain sleepy for the duration of their session. Most babies older than that have woken up to the world and are less likely to stay asleep and it is also the time where newborn acne can be prominent.
Do you offer maternity sessions?
I do not offer maternity sessions at this time. These adorable babies are keeping me so busy, I had to make the decision to specialize in what I love. I’m a wife and mother of 2 amazing children and have found this is the best way for me to put my whole heart in to my family and my business.
How soon should I book my appointment after finding out I’m expecting?
It’s never too early to book your session! I only offer a certain amount of appointments per month, so make sure you get on my books as soon as possible.
How do I book my appointment if I don’t know when I will have my baby?
What I have you do is contact me as soon as you can after your baby is born. I’ve had moms text me in labor! Please make sure it is within 2-3 days after your baby is here.
How long will my session last?
Newborns are all so different. You can expect anywhere from 1-2 1/2 hours. We stop and take snack and cuddle breaks if need be.
Do I need to bring props?
I hand pick props based on my style of newborn photography. I am constantly getting new things to keep things fresh. As an artist keeping to my style of photography is important to me and if you’ve booked with me, chances are you will love it. If you have a family heirloom that you would like incorporated, I would love to use it during your session.
Where will my session take place?
Sessions take place in my studio in Eureka. I’m currently not offering in home/on location newborn shoots.
Can we be in the photos too? How about siblings?
Yes of course! I always encourage you to be in the photos. You will not regret it. As a mother, I know how I felt days after giving birth, but I promise you, you’re glowing! These are the moments you won’t get back, so let’s capture them!
What else should we do the day of our shoot?
I will send you a full detailed email after we set our date with all of the information you will need to know. These are the most important things to follow to ensure the best photo shoot for you and your baby.
I look forward to meeting you and your baby soon!!
