We’ll then bring out the tub for some glorious tub time photos. Feel free to bring a favorite but lightly used light colored hooded towel. All decorations and custom cake included.

FAQs

 

What should I wear for a portrait session? What about my kids?

For most Newborn, Family or Maternity Sessions, I recommend wearing light tops or crisp button downs in pale colors or neutrals. Think of dressing casually but in something that's new so what you are wearing feels fresh. If we've discussed photographing you against a black backdrop, I recommend you wearing deep colored solids or black t-shirts or tank tops with jeans. Prior to our session, I’ll be happy to provide additional advice especially if we'll be photographing you outside. While at my studio, Moms will be able to select from a range of dresses for both maternity and Family Newborn sessions. Sizes range from Medium to Large and will fit most.
If you typically get a manicure or a pedicure, please consider getting a fresh one just before the session! Your hands will especially be very visible in a Family Newborn Session and a Maternity Session.

What Should I Bring to a Newborn Session? 

I have everything your baby will need during the session. Together, we'll select from my collection of swaddles, hats/bows what your baby will be wrapped in during the session. Everything that comes in contact with your baby will be steamed prior to use. If your baby uses a pacifier, please have one handy.
Your baby should be fed just before we're about to start the session. Feel free to bring a hungry baby, there is a comfortable and private place to nurse/feed at my studio.

I have older children, should I bring them to your studio after you have photographed my newborn?

Yes! It usually takes about 1 hour to photograph a newborn, allowing for nursing and soothing. So, if you can arrive first with your newborn and then have your older child or children arrive about an hour later with your spouse or grandparent, that would be ideal!

How Many Poses Can I Expect from My Newborn Session?

Every baby is different and therefore every session is different! The flow of every session starts with your baby swaddled, then your baby is transitioned to his/her side, then your baby is turned on his/her tummy for the "tushy" poses. I make every effort to capture all these sweet poses, but not every baby will want to be in those positions. I can guarantee that there will be a range of imagery in your gallery that captures all of your baby's uniqueness and exquisiteness! If there is a particular pose that you have seen either on my website or on my Instagram, please let me know so I can focus on capturing that pose for you.

Do you offer prints?

Yes! I partner with professional printing labs to offer a wide range of traditional print sizes and beautifully constructed fine art canvases, float wraps and professional prints.

How will I receive my images?

I deliver all of your final, high-resolution digital files through my password-protected website.
