How to prepare for your newborn photo session
So it’s all joy and no stress
Book before the baby is born
When you’re postpartum, even booking an appointment can be stressful.
(No worries, we don’t expect you to have an exact date. We put away a slot within the 3-week range of your due date.)
2 weeks is the charm. Your baby is really sleepy and naturally likes a curled and cuddled position, which makes for the perfect newborn shots.
Bathe and feed the baby one hour prior to coming
So he’s all prince (read: well-fed and sleepy) when we shoot.
Sometimes, no matter what you do, your baby will still be fussy or crying. Don’t stress. Many babies do that and still get beautiful photos.
Bring the baby, the paci, and nothing else
The studio is outfitted with a large selection of baby swaddles, hats, and other gear
to match the colors and poses you’ve chosen.
Email us some pictures of poses you’ve seen, or backgrounds you like, so we can get you the pictures you’re dreaming of.
Relax as I do what I love most
Hot drinks and refreshments are available in the mommy section of our studio,

If you’d like to have a picture of your baby with their favorite auntie or best Bobby, just bring them along.
That’s a bonus newborns get just because I love them — and it’s on the house.
Photoshoots are not timed
(Please allow for 2-3 hours)
I understand that newborns are unpredictable and expect that the baby might be fussy and hungry during the photo shoot.
In the studio, we let babies be babies and structure our sessions to suit them.
