Newborn Portrait Session: What to Expect
-When (and how) to book your newborn portrait session
Booking your session within your 2nd or 3rd trimester is encouraged. However, if your baby is already here, do not hesitate to contact me about a last minute booking. Since babies are rarely born on their due dates, my calendar is always changing and last minute bookings can potentially be accommodated. To book your session prior to babies arrival, I will pencil you in for your due date. As soon as you know when you will deliver, or after baby has made their arrival, you will contact me to reserve your actual session day and time. Scheduling your session within babies first two weeks allows us to work with your baby while they are still in that super sweet sleepy phase! A sleeping baby will allow us to capture those refined poses and images I am known for. However, if we are unable to book your session within babies first two weeks, no need to worry. While sessions are best in the first few days of life, I am trained to work with babies of all ages.
What to expect
Pre-session consultation- Whether we meet up for a quick cup of coffee, or you want to come check out the studio, pre-session consultations are a great opportunity to discuss, plan, and get excited about your session. During your consultation we will talk about your home, your style, and your nursery. You will be able to see and hold gorgeous heirloom quality products and get an idea of the types of products and images you want from your session.
Your Session- Newborn sessions can last anywhere from 2-4 hours. Your time in the studio will be relaxed and never rushed. Allowing time to pause for all the feedings, snuggles, and all the diaper changes necessary. I will work meticulously to capture the perfection that is your new baby; creating a diverse, refined, and beautiful gallery. All the props, outfits, wraps and newborn goodies you see in my galleries are all a part of my ever growing studio collection and for us to use during our session.
Your reveal/ordering appointment- Its time to see your images! Within 2 weeks of your session, your images will be ready to view! I will invite you back to the studio, where you will have the opportunity to view all the proofs from your session. You will have the opportunity to choose your favorite images and finalize the products you would like to purchase.
Your baby is amazing, and I want to capture that with no distractions! With the use of simple props, cohesive color schemes, and monochromatic set ups your gallery is sure to yield classic and timeless works of art with a beautiful modern touch.
Reveal and Ordering Appointment
Around 3 weeks after your session you will come back to the studio for an in person reveal and ordering appointment
