There are no words to describe the love a parent feels for their newborn baby! The newborn stage goes by quickly in a blur of nighttime feedings and diaper changes and before you know it, your "newborn" is all grown up! You will look back and long to remember their tiny toes and fingers, their silky soft skin, their little yawns, and the way their bodies seemed to mold so perfectly in your arms. We don't remember days...we remember moments. I want to help you remember this special moment!
When should I schedule my newborn session?
Contact me ASAP with your due date, $75 deposit is due upon booking. Once your baby is born - call or email me and we will schedule your session within the first two weeks after birth. I prefer 5-10 days old simply because they are still usually very sleepy and are able to be put into the newborn style poses. After 10 days, babies tend to lose their womblike characteristics and it becomes increasingly difficult to obtain those cute curled up sleeping positions because they are more alert and wake easier. Also, baby acne and colic tends to set in around that time.
Where will the session be held?
The session will be held in my home studio located in Rockland County NY just outside of Bergen County NJ
How long will the session take?
Expect your session to last 2-3 hours in order to allow us to go at a relaxed pace and have plenty of time for feeding, changing, and cuddling. Unlike chain studios, you don't need to worry about rushing or stressing over whether your baby will cry during your allotted time! Prior to your session, I will email you additional information detailing how to prepare for your session.
What should my baby wear?
Your baby will be photographed without clothes or with a diaper/diaper cover. I will also take photos of your little one swaddled in blankets/wraps and wearing headbands/hats. Bring an extra set of clothes just in case baby decides to have an accident while you’re holding them (without a diaper). With that being said, I expect baby to have accidents on me or my stuff, so don’t worry….it’s all washable!
Anything else I should know?
If you want to bring a sibling, please have a family member or dad bring them only for a short period of time. They will get bored and hot in my warm studio quickly. In order to get great shots of your newborn, we need a quiet, calm atmosphere! I want you to be happy with my work, and I work best in a quiet, non-distractive atmosphere.
