She made us feel comfortable and the photos turned out lovely!“
When should newborn photos be taken?
Typically newborn photos are done around 7-10 days old. If you want those super early, snuggly sleepy newborn photos then the earlier the better. If you don't mind if baby is awake during your session, then it's ok if they are a little older. I would stick to under 2 months, but it's never too late!
Should parents be in newborn photos?
Yes, please! Of course, it's up to you. But I don't think you'll regret getting in those photos with your sweet baby. If you're feeling hesitant because you're not quite feeling yourself after giving birth, I get it! I will do my best to take flattering photos you will cherish.
What should I wear for newborn photos? What should Dad wear?
Stick with comfortable clothes in neutral or muted colors. This session is for baby to shine, so we don't want anything distracting the eye. Some moms feel comfortable wearing jeans and a nice shirt, some prefer a soft flowy dress. Most dads are comfortable in jeans and a nice t-shirt or henley. You'll get personalized styling help with your session so no need to stress! You can also borrow any of my client closet dresses!
How do I get my baby to cooperate during the photoshoot?
Your baby is in charge here! We have plenty of time to make sure they are content. If that means we need to take frequent breaks, that's totally fine. Just make sure as best you can that they have a full belly and clean diaper, and try and stay calm. I keep the room a little warmer than usual since we'll be dressing and wrapping baby a few times during the shoot.
How long does a newborn photoshoot last?
Your session will take up to hours, depending on the size of your family, how baby is doing and if you chose the video package. This may sound like a long time, but trust me- we'll need it! Newborn sessions are all about patience.
When will I get my edited photos?
Within the first week after your session you'll get a gallery of all the best photos from your session. You'll be able to choose which of these lightly edited images you want to keep. The base package includes 10 photos but you will have the chance to purchase more if you'd like. After you pick the ones you want to keep, you can expect the fully edited photos within another 3 weeks. Turnaround total time is 4 weeks or less!
What is the best way to display newborn photos?
I always recommend getting pictures up on your wall! These pictures are meant to be displayed, not just kept on your computer. Maybe a larger photo for the nursery wall and smaller ones for an end table in the living room or your dresser. An album is also a great way to showcase all the photos from your session. These are also great for grandparents! You'll get a complimentary print credit with your session to use towards any gallery purchase so we can create whatever you want.
