sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory
Congratulations on your new addition!
Newborns are my specialty and I would be honored to photograph this new chapter in your lives.
I prefer to shoot the newborn session when the baby is 5-20 days old, with the 6-9 day range being my preference. The "older" the newborn gets the more difficult the session can be so it is so important to get your session scheduled as soon as possible. To ensure a spot on my calendar it's best to set up your newborn session before the baby is born. I shoot all newborn sessions in my studio.
I shoot newborn sessions at 9:30 in the morning when baby is still exhausted from keeping you up all night. If you're able to do a session earlier than that it's more beneficial to the session. I won't shoot the newborn sessions later in the day because the baby sleeps most deeply in the morning and sessions that begin later in the day, in my experience, are not as successful as morning sessions. Newborn sessions vary in length but can be a few hours long because the baby will likely need to feed, potty, and fuss, repeat.
I provide all props, wraps, and attire for newborns so you don't need to worry about a thing!
