We like to photograph newborns before 10 days old as the younger they are, the more sleepy and 'mold-able' they are. This means you can get those cute curled up poses which make the newborn portraits so amazing and unique.
A typical newborn session will take up to 3 hours duration. We will be guided by the baby and its practice in patience and precision. Newborns can be ticking time bombs, so we work fast, but slowly, almost unnoticed. Ideally the shoot will take place in the morning when they are likely to be a more willing participant. Its also a good idea to have them fed right before the session, a full tummy often means happy bubba.
The room will be warm to ensure maximum cosiness for your baby. Your session will be dictated depending on your desires and your end purpose for the photos. Consider why you are getting these photos. Is it to enlarge on a canvas? For a birth announcement cards? Or just general documentation of this moment in time? We will discuss this with you before your session so we can prepare for your shoot.
During your session your baby will feed as many times as needed, which means there is a good chance of 'accidents' happening on the props we use. This is very common so don't worry, we will be well prepared for this.
We look forward to capturing those precious first moments, their tiny hands, tiny feet and all the tiny details that make up one perfect little person.
