Depending on your preferences, newborn sessions can take place either in my home studio, or in the comfort of your own home. I utilize a mix of natural and studio lighting depending on the location of the shoot.
Prior to your session, we will conduct a brief phone consultation to better understand your color/style preferences and identify the best lighting scenario and use(s) of space. I have a growing selection of props available for your use, but you are more than welcome (and encouraged) to incorporate your own special items.
Newborn sessions can last anywhere from 2-4 hours. Every baby is different, therefore I do not like to place strict time frames on my sessions, nor do I charge by the hour. Mother's will be encouraged to feed, change and soothe the baby throughout the session in order to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
To ensure availability, it is recommended that you schedule your session a few months in advance of your due date, aiming for the baby's first 7-10 days. During this time-frame babies are easiest to work with because they are still very sleepy. After the first two weeks they become more prone to newborn acne and rashes...but don't worry we can totally work around that!
