preparing for your session

Newborn session at your home:

  • Home sessions are designed to capture your family in your natural environment, and are primarily lifestyle sessions. Less posed, and more natural. 
  • Please make sure you start feeding your baby an hour before the session, and feed until he/she is definitely full
  • Warm the house to 78 degrees or warmer
  • Dress your baby in just a loose diaper (to avoid red marks) and a cozy, swaddled blanket
  • Parents and siblings should wear simple and comfortable clothing in a palette of your choice.
  • Lay out your favorite blankets, knit hats, fun booties, or any other special items you wish to include in your portraits ahead of time.
  • Allow 2 hours for your newborn session.
  • Home sessions are designed to capture your family in your natural environment, and are primarily lifestyle sessions. Less posed, and more natural. 

Newborn session at the studio:

  • Please feed your baby before you get in the car, and feed until he/she is definitely full. Allow plenty of time for a nice, long feed – we want to make sure baby is very full!
  • Bring your favorite blankets, knit hats, fun booties, handmade quilts, or any other special items you wish to include in your portraits
  • Bring any baby outfits you might want to photograph – we can choose which ones will photograph best at the studio
  • Parents and siblings should wear simple and comfortable clothing in a palette of your choice.
  • Allow 3-4 hours for your newborn session – much of this time you can relax, so bring along a snack, a magazine, book, or plan on taking a much-needed nap!
