MATERNITY SESSION DETAILS:
Congratulations on the new addition to your family! Maternity Sessions are done outdoors at a park or beach for a more natural feel OR in your home for a more lifestyle session. The best time to book your Maternity Session is around 34 weeks. You can book in 30 minute sessions or 1 hour sessions. If there are no children included, a Mini session is ideal. If you are including children, a full 1 hour session is best. Children will have more time to warm up and have fun during the session. We want them happy too!
NEWBORN SESSION DETAILS:
Capture those fresh new grins and tiny features as they change so quickly. Newborn Sessions are a bit different than the rest as they require a lot more time. It's very important we do the session when the baby is between 4-21days old (the younger the better) so they are at their most sleepiest stage allowing us to do all those cute poses a lot easier. Generally, Newborn sessions last 2-3 hours. This will allow for feedings, diaper changes, and soothing baby asleep. Sessions are done comfortable in your own home. I provide all equipment, props, and outfits needed for the session.
-WHEN TO BOOK THE SESSION:
We will tentatively schedule your newborn session for about 2 weeks after your due date to be sure we have a date down in case dates fill up quickly. If the baby is born early or late, letting me know as soon as possible would be best so we can re-schedule accordingly.
-WHAT TO WEAR:
For the baby, I will provide all items needed. If you have an outfit or items you'd like to use, have it out so we can use it as well! For sibling and family photos with baby, I recommend wearing solid nuetral colors: black, white, brown, etc.
-BEFORE & DURING THE SESSION:
There are some things you can do before the session to ensure we get exactly what you're looking for. It also makes things go more smoothly. If there is any props or items you see in my photos that you'd like me to bring, please let me know -prior- to the session and I will be sure to bring them. Also, if there are any colors that you like best, such as colors to match the nursery/theme, please let us know so we can be sure to bring that as well. The baby will be in a diaper for most of the session.
The morning of the session, You will want to feed the baby right before we get there to get the baby in what we like to call it the "Milk Coma Stage." Taking the clothes off -before- feeding helps with keeping the baby asleep when we begin. You can keep the diaper on and be sure to keep the baby wrapped warm. You don't need to change the temperature in the house. We have warming items that we will bring.
During the Session, stay close by and watch! This is your time to relax and take a break - enjoy the show! We will need an open area to set up equipment and place items as we will be bringing a lot with us.
