THE NEWBORN SESSION

Newborn sessions are typically done within the first 5-14 days after the baby is born. This is a special window of time when we are able to catch little ones while they are still sleepy and very flexible. As babies spend more time out of your tummy, they become more aware of their surroundings and are more particular about every aspect of their new life (hunger, temperature, swaddling, etc.). Our goal is also to capture them before baby acne and possible hair loss as well, which usually begins just after the two-week mark. That all being said, there is never a “bad” time to photograph a newborn and I will take them at all ages.

A typical newborn session lasts 2 to 3 hours and is a mix of solo shots of the baby, siblings and family photos.

For in-home sessions, a small area is usually set up near a sliding door or in a room with good natural light. Diana will bring flash for additional lighting.

Sessions can also include family members or pets at no additional charge.

THE BOOKING PROCESS

Step 1: A session contract will be emailed. The contract will give you deposit and prop selection information, so artistic decisions aren’t being made while you are busy with the new baby.

Step 2: Once the contract is returned and the deposit is paid, your due date is added to our calendar.

Step 3: Your session is customized for your specific tastes and desires with prop selection, wardrobe and accessories.

Step 4: Our new parents send an email or text from the hospital to alert us of the arrival of the baby and to set up our photo shoot date and time. If you are having a scheduled c-section, a session date can be arranged prior to the birth.

PREPARING FOR THE SESSION

It is best to try to feed the baby as close to the start of the session as possible. For an in-home session, before beginning this feeding, it is very helpful to have the baby in a clean diaper and a warm blanket so we don’t disturb them as the session is starting by removing clothing. For studio sessions, we will try to remove the baby from the car seat with as little disturbance as possible.

If you would like any guidance on clothing for family photos please click here for Diana’s “What to Wear” tips.

After 20 years of collecting, I have many diaper covers, hats, headbands etc. but please feel free to purchase things from etsy or plan on using blankets or things people have given you for the baby. It is a lot of fun to style the session to your tastes and preferences and to really make it unique to your family. I am always up for any fun ideas, please feel free to email with plans you may have prior to the session if you would like my input as well.

AFTER THE SESSION

After the session, the images are edited and color/exposure corrected to make sure all is looking great. About 7-10 days after the session these images are uploaded to a private password-protected website for you. These images are yours to view, share, download and even print from your private website. You may download the images in high and/or low resolution so you can print on your own, share on social media etc. Once you have had a chance to browse the images please let Diana know your favorite 5 images for retouching.
