Congrats! This is such an exciting time!! I am a mom of 3 & know how special this time is (while also being exhausting.stressful.overwhelming) basically all the feelings.
I can’t wait to capture these firsts for your family.
My newborn sessions are Lifestyle type sessions:
so basically they are casual, relaxed sessions – where I capture your family in your home – just being yourselves! Hanging out in the nursery, the couch & of course your babe will be getting lot of loving.
Let’s talk clothing! Usually neutrals are great for newborn sessions. Dark colors like dark blue/maroons will make editing skin tones on the baby hard. Mom & Dad can wear – beiges, whites, grey etc – most importantly be comfortable!! Have a few choices for your baby – maybe one neutral and one colored outfit. You can have some hats, headbands & swaddles ready that we can use in some of your photos.
I usually recommend you feed the babe right before our session time – this way we have a happy full baby! Don’t stress if timing isn’t working out, I schedule enough time with you that you won’t have to rush, you can feed the baby or change them/take as many breaks as we need! I usually will start with full family photos, then dad & baby or siblings & baby. I save mom & baby and individual shots of the baby alone for last – that way dads or older siblings can be done first!
Feel free get in touch with me before your session to go over any questions!! I don’t want you to stress or be worried at all – it will be a fun session ☺️
