Having a newborn can be one of the most exciting things ever! But don't forget to contact me when you are approximately 36 weeks pregnant to book your newborn session to ensure my availability. After baby is born, I will work with you to solidify the exact date and time of your session. Please call, text or email me right away so we can schedule it. I recommend scheduling your session when your baby is 7-10 days old, no later than 14 days old. So now what? You’ve booked a newborn session. Let me start off by saying thank you for entrusting me with your baby. I work with families and babies several times a month, and I have two children myself. The most important part of your session is your baby’s safety. I am very patient and careful while working with babies, and will never force your baby into a pose that they are resisting. There are other key factors in a successful session, which is that the parents remain calm and relaxed throughout the session. Babies feed off their parent’s energy, and if anyone is anxious your baby will have a hard time settling down. Newborn sessions can last anywhere between two to three hours. Depending on your baby, the session may be shortened or may run long. I recommend that you do not schedule anything prior to your session or after your session that way your session is not rushed. You really do not need to bring much to your session, other than the obvious, diapers, wipes, a pacifier (if you have one), bottles, extra milk or formula, a change of clothes for baby and for yourself. Because, well you know, accidents happen. I do have extra blankets so do not worry if this happens.
I have three different packages starting at $495+ depending on whether or not you'd want to arrange milestone sessions. I would be happy to discuss with you further what fits best for you and your family.
