Sessions generally last 1-3 hours allowing time for breaks, feedings, diaper and wardrobe changes. Sessions can take place just about anywhere but most of the time your home is best, especially for newborns. If you are interested in a family portrait session be sure to check out my lifestyle site.
I use only natural light to produce the most flattering portraits. When I arrive at your home, I will look around for the best natural light and move furniture when necessary to achieve desired results. I often use items/props from your home as well.
Approximately two weeks after the session, you will receive a secure online gallery for viewing your photos. Each photo will be preprocessed with cutting edge technology and equipment. Approximately 20-30 photos will be uploaded to your very own private online gallery, allowing you the freedom to take your time selecting your favorite photographs. These galleries are made available to you for seven days and can be extended for a small fee.
I prefer to photograph newborns within the first two weeks of life while the baby is still very sleepy. While it may be tempting to have a fancy new outfit for your baby, I find that newborns always look best wearing nothing at all or just wrapped in a swaddling blanket. I come to your home with the expectation that there will be plenty of diaper changes, several feedings and much coaxing back to sleep.
Please contact me with your due date or induction date and I will pencil you in on the calendar. Once the baby arrives, contact me from the hospital so we can set up a confirmed time. Once your session is booked, I will email you more information on what to expect.
