How to Prepare for a Newborn Session


Congratulations on your new baby or babies! I know it can be a lot to take in so we like to make it super easy for you and your family!

We will come to you. The nursery is the best place to do the session. The baby also feels more comfortable at home. Also why not show off the adorable room you have been working on for your little one. 


The best time to do the newborn session is before the baby has turned 14 days old. It is easier for posing the baby without wanting to stretch and move a lot. 

Prepare about 3-4 outfits that you would like the baby to wear.


Keep it simple. Solid onesies are best for at least one outfit. You and your family should dress comfortable, neutrals are best. 


A sleepy baby is best, feeding the baby before the shoot is a great idea at the location. Normally they get hungry many times at the photo shoot as well, this is a great photo to have breastfeeding or bottle feeding if you want.

we will also do some family shots in your bedroom or living room depending on best lighting and preference.

So relax, we will help you during the session.


The session can takes up to two weeks to be ready for viewing!

When the photos are ready we send you a link of all the edited photos, 
you choose which images based on what is included in your package.
Additional images are available for purchase as well.

We highly recommend you use our print shop for best quality.
