Each session length varies in time from approximately one to three hours (newborns can take up to four hours). I genuinely enjoy working with children and am happy to take as much time as needed to capture images that authentically reflect your child’s personality.
While I do have a studio that comfortably accommodates newborns and babies, I prefer to do outdoor sessions for toddlers and older children. I have found that children are happier and more cooperative when they have room to run, play and explore. The combination of relaxed children and beautiful locations indoors or outdoors yields images that are truly meaningful and unique.
Newborn sessions should take place within the baby’s first two weeks of life, ideally at 6-10 days of age. Beyond this stage, newborns aren’t as sleepy and are significantly more challenging to pose. Baby acne and colic tend to flare after this point as well. Please contact me during your pregnancy to discuss scheduling options for your newborn session.
Even before baby is born, I also like capturing the moments with a “baby bump” shoot. I have packages that include the “baby bump” photos, all the way to 1-year photos. When you are scheduling for your newborn session, please ask about our photo package.
