Before baby is born is the best time to book your session. Contact me with your due date, and I will note it on the calendar. Babies rarely come on their expected due date, so I will be sure to have a time slot available for baby, when he or she decides to make their arrival. The best time to do your session is within 10 days of birth. After that they begin to wake easier, are more aware of their surroundings, and the more opinionated they are ☺
Mom, Dad, and Sibling photos can all be included in your session, however, please be aware of the time commitment for these photos. The session will last up to 3 hours, but we do spend a lot of that time with feedings, diaper changes, and getting baby lulled back to sleep. If choosing to do these photo groupings these will take place at the very beginning of the session. For siblings, please plan on a separate driver. We photograph in a small area and 3 hours is a long time for young ones to sit through.
If you are nursing, be prepared for baby to want to nurse. A lot. If you are bottle feeding, bring plenty of formula. Bring a couple extra blankets, plenty of diapers, wipes, and extra change of clothes for both mom and baby. You never know what mess these little ones can create! These sessions are very hands on, and I will be handling baby most of the session to pose baby properly. It’s going to get hot! It’s important to keep these little ones comfortable while they are in their birthday suits. Dress comfortable, and accordingly.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
