WHEN TO BOOK YOUR NEWBORN SESSION
The best time to book your newborn session is during your pregnancy, and the ideal time to photograph your baby is between 6-10 days so they are nice and sleepy and to get those beautiful curly poses. I will make a tentative booking based on your due date and then wait to hear from you when you arrive home from the hospital with your brand new baby, we can then arrange a suitable time and day for your session.
HOW LONG ARE NEWBORN SESSIONS?
For full newborn sessions, I schedule up to 4 hours for newborn session. I don’t always use the full 4 hours. A typical session lasts 2 hours, but could be quicker. It all depends on the baby. I leave extra room in the schedule for snuggling, posing, feeding, set changes, etc.
ARE PROPS INCLUDED?
I have a wide variety of props at my studio that are available for use during your session. You are more than welcome to bring your own props that you picked up, but you can always come to the studio with piece of mind knowing I will have lots for you to pick through.
CAN I CIRCUMCISE MY BABYBOY BEFORE THE SESSION?
NO!! Please wait until after your session. We will be tightly swaddling your boy naked in scarves and delicate fabrics. The fabrics are soft, however a fresh circumcision is very fragile and often uncomfortable for a newborn. When we wrap and unwrap, along with change his position or pose, the circumcision can become irritated even further which leads to a VERY unhappy baby who is not able to be photographed. We do not want to make your baby hurt or uncomfortable. Please note, we feel very strongly about this and we WILL send you home if your baby arrives at the studio and has been circumcised within 5 days of your session.
HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL BE IN A GALLERY? CAN I HAVE ALL THE PHOTOS YOU TAKE?
Full newborn sessions include at least 20 images, it all depends on the baby, A fussy baby may yield smaller results and vice versa. On average, my full session gallery typically has 35-45 photos. This will be a mix of different poses and angles. I only choose and edit the best photos to present to you. Trust me, I’m not hiding amazing photos on my hard drive. My heart skips a beat when I see an amazing photo. Photos that don’t meet my high criteria are deleted immediately.
Following your photo shoot, we select the best images for artistic editing. We devote time to carefully compare hundreds of photos from your shoot and select only the ones that meet our standards. These final images are each individually processed and enhanced. This process usually takes 2 weeks.
YOUR DIGITAL FILES
All of our Portrait Sessions include your artistically edited images in high resolution. These digital photos are yours to download, share, print, and archive forever and ever.
