Frequently Asked Questions about Newborn Photography

When is the best time to schedule a newborn session?

Ideally, the best time to photograph your newborn is within the first ten days of life. Your baby is often sleepy and more cooperative in getting better posing.

What should I bring to my newborn session?

Please bring diapers, wipes, pacifier (if your baby will take one), bottle (if not breastfeeding), warm swaddling blankets, and any props or personal effects you want photographed with your baby. We do have essential items at our studio if you forget anything.

What should I wear?

You should wear solid clothing (preferably dark) and avoid patterns. Also, accidents happen and we have no problem cleaning up if something comes out of your newborn.

How should I prepare for my session?

It's best to bathe and feed your baby prior to the session. We will take breaks for feeding and comforting as needed.
