Frequently Asked Questions:
WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT CAPTURING YOUR NEWBORN?
Those first few weeks of your baby’s life pass by in a blur, and you will never have those precious moments again. A newborn portrait session is the perfect way to capture the sweet innocence, delicate features, and cute expressions that fill your heart with joy. A newborn marks a fresh chapter in the life of a family. Preserving this special time with artistic photos is the best way to look back and remember.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PHOTOGRAPH MY NEWBORN?
Newborns are best photographed within the first 2 weeks (ideally 4-10 days) of life, when they are still sleepy and can be curled up into the beautiful poses. However, beautiful images can be achieved with babies who are slightly older, so don’t worry! We take up to two hours for a newborn session and leave plenty of time for feedings, diaper changes and breaks for mommy and baby. Although the newborn session is booked in advance to ensure availability, we will only schedule an appointment once your baby has been born.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY NEWBORN SESSION?
We recommend that you bring your newborn to the session well rested and plan to feed baby as soon as you arrive. Sleepy babies photograph perfectly, we take several breaks for feedings during the session to ensure that your baby is happy and has a full tummy. We ask that you not be too concerned with scheduled feedings during the session and that you feed baby when needed or when they get a bit fussy to ensure their comfort and a smooth session.
STUDIO OR ON LOCATION?
We offer beautiful newborn portraits in our studio, or in the comfort of your home. Working in our studio allows us to photograph in a controlled environment, with the perfect lighting and room temperature that are so important to the success of a newborn session. We are also happy to capture newborn portraits in the comfort of your home. We will capture lifestyle portraits in your baby’s nursery and any other meaningful settings. We will also bring along portable lighting equipment, as well as some blankets and accessories for the “classic” posed newborn portraits.
CAN I BE PHOTOGRAPHED WITH MY BABY?
Most certainly! We wouldn’t have it any other way. We love to capture the emotion of those special first days with your new little one and believe that there is no greater image than a new mommy or daddy cuddling with and admiring their newborn child. Skins on skin images are a unique way to capture the purity of these relationships, but we also ask parents to bring an outfit to their liking.
CAN SIBLINGS BE PHOTOGRAPHED WITH MY BABY?
Yes siblings are encouraged to be photographed with the baby! We usually do the sibling images first, and then ask that you bring a grandparent or babysitter along to take them home once their portion of the session is completed. It’s a lot to expect toddlers and older siblings to play quietly for the remainder of the session.
Following your session, we select the best images for processing and retouching. We devote time to carefully compare the multiple images from your session to select the best ones from each concept — based on facial expressions, posing, lighting, sharpness, and overall appeal. These final images are each individually processed and enhanced into a creative edit.
DO WE HAVE A REFERRAL PROGRAM?
By all means, yes! Referrals are the heart of our business. If you loved the services we provide, please share the love with your friends. By doing so you will be rewarded with print credit each time your friends book and pay for a session.
MUCH DOES A NEWBORN SESSION COST?
The Newborn Session Fee is $300, which includes the newborn session, post processing and editing of your images, and a portrait preview appointment. Prints, products and digital images are purchased separately. Most of our clients invest between $800-$2500 on their portraits which includes digital images, an album and/or wall art.
