This is the beginning of their life story...
Newborn sessions are some of my favorite memories to capture. Their tiny, sleepy, posable little bodies are just the best. The best time to capture this stage is within the first 4 weeks after birth to make sure they are sill willing to be moved, swaddled, and sleepy! I have an ever growing collection of baskets, backdrops, wraps, props, headbands and anything else needed. You only need to bring your sweet little bundle, and any feeding/diapering accessories! These sessions are done in my in home studio.
These sessions take time! Babies are teeny, tiny little dictators...and we must work on their schedules. Haha!...but really. Mini wrapped sessions typically take about 1- 1.5 hours. Full newborn sessions are typically about 2-2.5 hours. This allots plenty of time to feed, change, soothe, wrap and settle them into each setting. Some babies sleep through the whole session...others...not so much. Prepare yourself for either scenario. I will do my absolute best to make sure we get a bunch of cute little poses in different setups, but sometimes...we'll have less then ideal conditions. I wish that I could guarantee a set number of setups we will get during our time...but sometimes due to gassy tummies, awake little eyes, restlessness, etc...we may only get a limited number of photos. No matter what...I'll do whatever I can to ensure you have photos of your sweet little love that you will treasure forever!
Can I extend the session on the day of?
I typically schedule my portrait sessions with a little buffer time in between in the event of a late arrival or fussy child, etc. If you would like to extend your session for any reason, please let me know as soon as possible and I will try to accommodate your request based on that day's schedule and available lighting and weather.
What kind of gear do you use?
My current gear is a Nikon D750 with multiple lenses. I also have a backup Nikon D7000. I have plenty of extra cards and batteries- prepared for any failures or unforeseen circumstances!
Do I have to order prints through you?
You are certainly welcome to order prints through me. The gallery that is included in all of my wedding packages includes an option to order prints directly from there. They are professional quality prints which I highly recommend. I do provide full print rights to you, so you are welcome to use your favorite print options if you please!
What happens in the event of bad weather or sickness?
Unfortunately unforeseen circumstances do arise. We are all human and I totally get stuff happens. Since I require a deposit to book all sessions, those deposits are non-refundable as that secures that slot, and prevents me from booking another. In the event that sickness or bad weather occurs, we can certainly reschedule your slot for anytime in the future!
If I have to cancel our session for any reason (which I will only do in the event of sickness or emergency)- I will offer a choice of reschedule or refund of the deposit.
Do you have a question?
I am an open book, so if you have any other questions- please do not hesitate to ask!
