How can I schedule a newborn session when I don’t exactly know when I will give birth?
I will enter your due date into my calendar and tentatively schedule your session between 5-14 days after your due date depending on my availability on the day you book. Once your baby is born, you’ll let me know so we can confirm the date and time as well as any other details and reminders.
When should I book?
As soon as possible! I book only a certain number of sessions per month, so secure your spot as early in your pregnancy as you can to ensure your session is reserved! Please don’t delay in booking! I really want to meet YOUR new baby!!
When do newborn sessions take place?
While it’s certainly possible to get fantastic shots of older newborns, for the best chance of ultra sleepy and squishy babies, I prefer to schedule a newborn session between 5 and 14 days of age. However, if you’re reading this and think, “Darn, I missed it!”, don’t worry! Email me and see if I can work you into my schedule. Chances are we can still get some beautiful photos (and perhaps sleeping) of your newest addition!
Where do the sessions take place?
All newborn sessions take place in my home studio in downtown Brandon, MS where I have access to my ever increasing collection of backdrops and props.
How long does a session last?
Typically, a session can last between 2-3 hours. The time really depends on how sleepy your baby is, how much they want to snack etc,. I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help soothe them and settle into nap time!!
Can I bring a sentimental or heirloom item to be used in the session?
Absolutely! These are your photos and I want you to love them! The birth of a new baby is so special and though I supply everything we’ll need for the session, feel free to bring something that is special to you.
Do you supply all those cute bonnets, hats, headbands and wraps?
Yes, I sure do! I have so many cute props…you wouldn’t even believe it!
Can I request certain poses?
Yes, you sure can. Once you decide to book a session, you’ll get to fill out a questionnaire and tell me all about nursery colors, pose requests, and anything else you want me to know prior to the big day.
Can siblings and/or parents be in a few shots?
Of course! For siblings, I kindly request that they arrive and be included in the photos at either the first or last 30 minutes of the session. Going out to lunch or some park playtime with a family member or family friend is way better than being cooped up in a hot studio for hours having to be still and quiet!
How do I book a session?
Either contact me via the contact me tab above, or email me at email@example.com
Once you book your session, I will email you with additional information on how to prepare for your newborn session.
I can’t wait to meet your new baby!!
