Frequently Asked Questions & Tips

  • HOW LONG WILL THE SESSION BE? A typical newborn session lasts between 2- 4 hours. I know this seems like a lot, but a good amount of this time is soothing baby, feeding baby, wrapping/posing baby. Your session is all about you and your newborn baby. All my cues are taken from your beautiful baby. He/She is the one really in charge and I believe they know it!

  • WHEN IS IT BEST TO BOOK MY SESSION? It is best to book your newborn session when you are pregnant to ensure my availability. I then book based on your due date. I do know that baby will come either early or late and I plan accordingly. I always welcome sessions after your baby is born and do my best to fit you in as soon as possible as I know how quickly your tiny newborn changes daily. 

  • WHAT IS THE BEST AGE FOR PHOTOS?  The best time to photograph your newborn baby is between 5-12 days new. During those first few days baby is still very sleepy and curly, so we will get those squishy curly poses we all love.

  • The studio will be quite warm, around 82 degrees, to keep your newborn baby comfortable and sleepy please dress appropriately, I suggest layers. I do keep a fridge stocked with cold water for my clients.


  • Bring a pacifier, this is important, even if you do not plan on using one, it helps soothe baby when posing and getting them into that deep sleep. 

  • For parent / baby photographs I recommend parents wear solid colors - no patterns.

  • Bring extra clothes for yourself / spouse as I have learned that newborns have a great sense of humor!! 

  • Bring plenty of diapers and food for the baby weather nursing or bottle feeding bring more than you think you will need.
