They are so tiny for only such a short period of time...
As a mom, I love newborn little beings. They are so ethereal and beautiful beyond this world. This is a time that passes so quickly. I am glad you are considering capturing this time to cherish forever.
A newborn session are idealy done within 5 to 10 days of birth. This is a time when they are still sleepy and curl up into precious newborn poses and give sleepy, drowsy little smiles. If you have missed that window, don't be disheartened. Contact me and let's see if we can still schedule a session. The session lasts 3-4 hours. Allow for a good amount of time, just in case. I never rush newborn sessions and always take breaks for feedings, cuddling and soothing and of course cleaning all the poo and pee. I know the stress of having a newborn, and the last thing I want you to worry about is hurrying through a session. I am used to waiting babies out, and enjoy spending that time getting to know you and the rest of your family.
The session can be done in the comfort of your home or in my studio. I will provide all necessary props, equipment, wraps etc. However, I do encourage you to personalize your session with your own accessories, such as headbands, hats and knits that appeal to your taste or special family heirlooms such a blanket that you would like included in the session. The little one will be in his/her birthday suite. No clothes necessary.
I encourage parents to take part in the session. And Moms, do not worry about the baby weight you haven’t lost yet, or any skin issues you may still have. This will all pass. I am a mom and still remember all too well what those first two weeks were like! But you will cherish these captures with your little one forever! For your outfits, choose natural colors. Whites and creams and very pale pastel colors look best and keep the focus on your family. Avoid busy prints and wiritng/brand names.
It is best to book your newborn session in advance. Once you book a session with me, I will make a tentative booking based on your due date and then wait to hear from you when your little one arrives. We can then arrange a suitable time and day for your session. Since newborns are notorious for arriving when they please, this allows me to plan for different session times around that due date. I will also provide you with more detailed information to help you prepare for the session.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have, I am always happy to answer them. I love newborn sessions and look forward to working with you and your family to capture this special time!
