Newborn babies photograph best between 6 days to 2 weeks old. At this point they are still very sleepy and like to curl up as if they were still in the womb. We take up to three hours for a newborn session and leave plenty of time for feedings, diaper changes and breaks for mommy and baby. Don’t worry if you had to spend a little time in the NICU, we will accommodate for you. The studio has a variety of safe newborn posing props, beautiful wraps, and accessories.

We encourage our clients to bring up to two special, personal items which make the session and images especially meaningful. For example: a sentimental blanket or bonnet. But don’t worry if you don’t have anything to bring. Our studio is stocked with many props, wraps, hats, etc.
We photograph baby naked or in a diaper that we cover with our wraps. For siblings and parents, please try to wear neutral tones such as gray, tans, blues or cream. Please refrain from heavy patterened clothes. We feel that neutrals create more of a timeless look.
We recommend that you bring baby to the session well rested and plan to feed baby as soon as you arrive. Sleepy babies photograph perfectly, so we will ask you to undress and swaddle baby before the feeding so as to not disturb them by undressing them after the feeding. We take several breaks for feeding baby during the session to ensure that baby is happy and has a full tummy. We ask that you not be too concerned with scheduled feedings during the session and that you feed baby on demand or when they get a bit fussy to ensure their comfort and a smooth session. Bring a bottle or pacifier if available.
If baby does not sleep during the session, we usually wrap him/her in most poses so they feel secure and photograph better. It’s ok to have open eyes in baby’s first photos!
