If you would like to schedule a maternity and/or newborn session, use the “Contact Me” form on my website to send me a message!
PS- I have a special discount for you if you book both a maternity and newborn session! 🙂
Maternity sessions are typically done when you are approximately 33-37 weeks along. You are welcome to bring along your significant other for some photos. You’re also welcome to bring anything special to document your pregnancy and/or upcoming baby, such as a food you’ve craved, special stuffed animal for your baby, etc. Newborn Sessions Newborns are best photographed between 5-12 days old. Please contact me before your baby is born and we’ll pencil in a date for your session, and finalize things after your baby’s arrival. Being a new mom (whether it’s your first or your fifth child) can be hectic and overwhelming, so I strive to make your session as relaxed as possible!
Newborn sessions usually take anywhere from 2-4 hours depending on the baby, so there is plenty of time for feedings, breaks, and snuggle time. I also like to have the room on the warm side… usually between 77-80 degrees. It will seem pretty warm to us, but for your baby it will be perfect! Newborns are best photographed in their birthday suit (tastefully, of course), but if you would like to include any special toys, blankets, clothing, etc for the session, please let me know at the beginning and we will try to work everything in. If you’re going to have clothing for the baby’s photos, please choose something that fits well. I also have a lot of props that you’re welcome to pick from, or you’re welcome to use your own props to incorporate into the photos.
