1. When should I schedule a photoshoot for my new baby?
The newborn photo session should be scheduled in the first 2 weeks of your baby’s life. The perfect timing is between 4 – 10 days old. Please contact me in advance with your due date, so that I can reserve you a spot on my calendar. Once your baby is born, please let me know so that we can finalize the photo session date and time.
2. Why is the newborn photoshoot scheduled so early in the baby’s life?
Newborns in the first 2 weeks of their lives spend most of the time sleeping and they can sleep through anything – noise, people talking, and working with photographers. Newborns are also very flexible, that is why it is so easy to get special poses at this early stage of their lives.
3. Will you come to our house?
Yes, I will come to your residence, and bring my portable studio and all necessary props.
4. Do I need to prepare any special clothes for the baby?
It is not necessary. I will bring different outfits, hats, headbands, blankets, props, baskets, etc., however if you have a special piece of a clothing or an item you want to incorporate into the photoshoot, you are more then welcome to have it ready for our session. We can discuss colours, props, and outfits in more length during our consultation session. For family / parents and baby photos I recommend wearing neutral colours without any patterns, black or white t-shirts (dad) and tank tops (mom) or skin to skin photos are always beautiful.
5. How long will the photoshoot take?
Newborn photoshoots may take up to 3 hours. It takes extra time because of all the soothing, feeding, changing and all the extra love a newborn requires.
6. What else do I need to know to prepare for the session?
I will send you a comprehensive list of what to expect and how to prepare for a successful session prior to the photoshoot.
7. Can my partner and children join the photoshoot?
Yes, immediate family is welcome to join. Please let me know in advance how many adults / children will be joining the photo-shoot.
