Newborn Session Guidelines
I am a natural light, on location photographer who photographs lifestyle newborn photography. My newborn sessions are mostly prop free with a focus on the family holding/ interacting the the baby.
I come to your space, baby's space. We will begin each session seeking the best areas of the house in terms of lighting. Please open all blinds and curtains prior to my arrival.
If possible, please feed baby just before our session. Happy full-bellied babies are camera ready!
We want peace and quiet during our session. Make sure to keep this in mind the day of my arrival. If your baby likes a particular kind of soft music, I encourage you to have it playing upon my arrival.
Please have any hats or headwear ready and clean, as well as any blankets you wish to use.
Please make sure you yourself are also camera ready!
If you have any particular desired shots, please tell me, and we will make sure to incorporate them into the session. Don't be shy! This is a collaborative effort. It is optimal for you to brainstorm well before the session so you are able to tell me your desired shots upon my arrival.
If you wish to we may also photograph baby unclothed, I suggest making your house just a bit warmer the day of our session (preferably 80 degrees).
Every session is different. This is a collaborative process with family, baby, and photographer. Certain expectations are wonderful, but also be open to change!
Thank you for inviting me to capture this beautiful time, and I very much look forward to working with you!
