Newborn Session FAQ
Do I need to bring anything to the session?
Nope! I have everything we need except the baby! I have worked over the last four years to build a collection or backdrops, hats, headbands, and props so that you don’t have to bring a thing. If you have a special blanket or item you want to incorporate into the session I welcome you to bring that but it is certainly not necessary.
When should I book?
Some clients e-mail me just after they’ve told their spouse. ha! But most book in their second trimester. I only book 3-4 newborns a month so delaying booking may mean my schedule is filled.
What if we want more than just a newborn session?
90% of my newborn clients return for another session! I offer a variety of packages that are meant to capture some of your little one’s biggest milestones. Check them out here. Don’t see a package that works best for you? E-mail me, I’m happy to design a custom package for you.
What are your COVID-19 precautions?
I am fully vaccinated against everything (COVID-19, Influzena, and Pertussis included). I am happy wear a mask during newborn and sitter sessions upon request. Sanitizer is used throughout the session. The studio is sanitized and all props/backdrops are washed between uses. If anyone in my house is sick the client will be notified and we can make a decision on if we need to reschedule the session.
How do I book a session if I don’t know exactly when I’m going to have the baby?
Trust me, as a mom who delivered one baby at 41.5 weeks, the next at 36.5, and the last at 39 weeks, I get it! I know that babies are unpredictable. So I pencil in your due date on my calendar and then wait for your e-mail that the baby has arrived. We will not set a specific date until the baby has arrived.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! I offer payment plans, gift cards, and After Pay. You can choose whichever is the best fit for your family.
How soon after the baby is born will we do the session?
The ideal time to photograph your little one is between 5 and 21 days. I typically schedule babies around 14 days. This window ensures that baby is still snuggly, extra sleepy, and doesn’t mind being curled up just like they were in the womb. This small window is why it is crucial that you contact me as soon as the baby has arrived – even if you designate this job to a close friend or family member.
When and where will the session take place?
The session will take place in my studio in Danville, typically in the morning through the week. I have found that morning sessions (hopefully before dad heads back to work!) work best. It doesn’t kill your whole day (or your nap!). Clients are done around lunch time and able to get back home if there’s a toddler that needs to nap. For whatever reason, every evening session I have done, the baby is fussy and doesn’t want to sleep. Fluke? Maybe. But I’d rather avoid it. Sessions are done Monday – Thursday mornings at 9:00am.
How long will the session last?
This greatly depends on the baby. We let baby run the show. If baby comes and slips into a milk drunk coma then I can usually get through the session in an hour and a half. However, if baby needs to stop and eat it takes longer and could take up to three hours.
How do we prepare for the session?
Don’t worry! I’ve got all of that covered in my prep packet I will send you the week of your session. 🙂
