NEWBORN Q &A
Q: HOW DO YOU PLAN THE SETUPS FOR OUR NEWBORN SESSION?
A: I cater every newborn session to fit my clients wants and needs. Before the session each client receives a questionnaire that gives them the opportunity to tell me what they like and don’t like. I then take that questionnaire and plan the newborn session setups around it so that my clients walk away with images they will cherish for years to come.
Q: WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO TAKE NEWBORN PHOTOS?
A: I prefer to take the newborn photos in the first 2 weeks of the babies life. This age insures those sleepy curly poses you love. I will not turn away older babies but I always recommend doing them in the first 14 days. The best time to book your newborn session and insure a spot on the calendar is in the first or second trimester of pregnancy. I always say the sooner you book the better.
Q: HOW LONG DO SESSIONS LAST?
A: A newborn session will last up to 3.5 hours.
Q: DOES THE SESSION INCLUDE SIBLING OR PARENT PHOTOS?
A: Collection 2 includes parent or sibling photos and collection 3 includes both.
Q: WHAT DO THE PARENTS DO DURING THE SESSION?
A: In my studio I have a parent waiting area. During the session the parents are free to watch a show, take a nap, have a snack, or a drink. You get to sit back and relax while I take care of the rest. I know how tiring being a new parent is with 4 children of my own. You deserve a few hours during the session to just relax.
Q: DO YOU PROVIDE PRINTS AND PRODUCTS?
A: YES!! I have heirloom albums, folio boxes, prints, and canvases available for purchase after your session! I recommend ordering through me to insure color accuracy and print quality of the images. I take care of everything from beginning to end so you don’t have to worry about anything and walk away with gorgeous artwork for your home.
