Just like your brand new baby, newborn sessions are a very unique thing. How do you schedule when your due date is only an estimate? How do we keep them sleepy and happy? What should you expect?
I like to schedule session’s when you enter your second trimester. I only take on a limited about of session’s each month so that I am able to provide awesome customer service and turn around for my amazing clients. I recommend booking as soon as possible if you know I am the photographer for you! Once this happens I will send you over a booking proposal and questionnaire that asks some basic questions about you and your style so I can pull together all the beautiful things for your session. Once this is signed and the retainer has been sent you are booked in, yay!
About 2 weeks before your expected due date, you will receive an email from me will all of the prep instructions for your session. Once you have had your baby, send me an email, text or call and we will firm up our session date.
Newborn session’s take place in my home studio here in Woodstock, Ontario. My studio is designed specifically for newborn sessions. The temperature is kept at a cozy 28 degree’s to simulate being in mom’s tummy, and because most of the portraits are without clothes or only with light layers and wraps. I recommend dressing in layers to help keep cool. Sessions start in the morning at 10am, and typically wrap up about 1:00. I always follow the babies lead, there are lots of breaks for feeding and diaper changes!
Within 3-4 weeks of your session I will contact you with your online gallery link and you will be able to download and share your beautiful photos. There is also the option of a reveal session where I show you your gorgeous photo’s and you can decide on ordering from the larger art pieces, albums and the fun stuff I offer! Let me take care of all the leg work to make sure you end up with gorgeous archival pieces that will last for generations.
