How does this work?
It all starts with lots of questions. We need to get to know you and what you have in store for your new arrival. It all starts with a consult. Whether it be in person or on the phone we want to get to know what you like and what you expect for your session. We work on color likes and dislikes and what your favorite poses are. If you have no idea what we are talking about, don’t worry. We have plenty of samples, examples and photos to go through so you know exactly what you are getting. We like to get an idea of what the shower theme is as well as the nursery theme. Since so many moms contact us right when they find out they are expecting, because we book up so quickly, this information can be brought to our attention at a later date. We try to stay in contact with our clients, up to the due date.
Once your little one arrives, we try and get that sleepy little baby in within two weeks of being born. This way they are super sleepy and easy to pose in all those adorable poses you see on the website.
Newborn sessions can last between 1.5 and 3 hours. Mom and dad usually relax and watch us get to work using all the cute wraps, hats, outfits and props that are in the studio. The baby runs the show. Don’t worry if the baby is not into their first photo debut right away. This is very typical and since the baby runs the show, we improvise around the little one while still providing you with the best end product.
My baby has already been born, how can I schedule a session?
Although newborn sessions are usually done within the first two weeks of being born, we have had a plethora of last minute newborns come through the studio.
We have photographed newborns past four weeks old. These babies are sometimes more awake and not too fond of some of the poses but since they are the boss, we follow their lead. Although we book out months in advance, there is always a chance that there is a last minute reschedule so please contact us even if your little one is here!
