Hey Mama!

As a mama of two, I get it! These first days can be tiring and sleepless and your routine is not balanced. Because I understand how difficult it can be to adjust to this time, we have carefully designed our newborn experience to be relaxing, thoughtful, and successful in capturing the details you cherish in your baby.

Here are three tips to consider to set you and baby up for ease at your newborn session:

  1. Feed baby right before your session to promote comfort and sleep. While we welcome and understand the potential need for feeding during your session, it does give us more time to work together if we can begin right away when you arrive.
  2. Play and engage with baby 1-2 hours prior to your session to keep baby active while he/she will be more comfortable and sleepy during session.
  3. Book in second trimester so we can schedule your newborn session within the first 14 days of life. We personally suggest 5-9 days old if possible. Prescheduling with your photographer will put you on the schedule for the optimal window even though we understand that your due date can change.
