Session Timing…

The ideal newborn session takes place at 6-8 days of age.  Brand new babies are very sleepy and very agreeable during their first week of life.  A peaceful newborn allows me to focus on the details and achieve the best results.

Sometimes things don’t go as planned.  Exceptions can certainly be made for babies who need a little extra time for NICU stays.

When to book your session…

Because it takes time for me to transition your images from the camera into fine art portraits, session availability is limited.  It is best that you inquire about availability and book your session after your 12th week of pregnancy and prior to your 30th week of pregnancy.

Scheduling session dates…

Please contact me within 24 hours of your baby’s arrival so that we can schedule your exact session date.  The goal is to schedule as close to day 6 as possible, depending on other sessions that week. Please keep in mind that I only photograph newborns on weekdays.

Where will our session take place…

All sessions take place in my New Albany home.  In the case of twins, I will travel within 25 miles of 43054.

Props…

All of the props that you see in my portfolio, on my blog, and on Facebook are mine and can be used during your session. Please let me know prior to our session if you would like to use a specific prop (blanket, headband, hat, basket, etc.) so that I can have it readily available.
