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.)

Pro Tip:

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.

Pro Tip:

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.

Pro Tip:

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

Pro Tip:

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.
