Newborn Session Welcome Guide
Thank you so much for choosing me to capture these incredibly precious moments of your new little one's early days. It is truly an honor to be a part of this special time and to have the opportunity to create timeless memories that you and your family will treasure forever.
Comfort and Safety
Your baby's comfort and safety are of the utmost importance to me. I maintain a warm and cozy environment during the session to ensure your little one's contentment. Additionally, I'm trained and certified to handle newborns with care, and I will work gently to achieve those adorable poses while keeping your baby's comfort a priority.
Session Timing and Scheduling
Our session will take place within the first 7-14 days of your baby's arrival, a time when they are still in that wonderfully sleepy and curled-up state. This timeframe allows us to capture those captivating early moments in your baby's life. Before the session, we'll coordinate to find a date and time that works best for you and your baby's schedule.
What to Bring
For our session focused exclusively on your baby, there's no need to bring any special props or outfits unless you have something specific in mind. Your baby will be the star of the show! Additionally, I want you to feel completely comfortable during the session, so please bring whatever feeding supplies you need. I provide a comfortable, safe space for feeding, whether you choose to breastfeed or bottle-feed. Your comfort and your baby's needs are always a priority. Don't forget your diaper changing essentials.
Our newborn session will be relaxed and paced to accommodate your baby's needs. I'll guide through various setups and poses, ensuring that your baby's comfort comes first. The focus will be solely on capturing the beauty and innocence of your new arrival.
Your Comfort Matters
Please come prepared to take breaks as needed. Parenthood is a journey filled with beautiful, unpredictable moments, and I understand that your baby's well-being is paramount. We will work together to ensure a seamless and enjoyable experience for both you and your baby.
Before the Session
Make sure your baby is well-fed right beforehand. If you have a long drive, we will make the time to feed at session location, just before we get started.
Dress your baby in loose-fitting clothing to avoid any marks on their delicate skin. It helps to cover their hands and feet to avoid scratch marks.
Do you keep it super quiet at home? Is the television or music normally on in the background? These are great things to communicate so we can replicate their normal environments as much as possible.
Please let me know if you have any specific color preferences or ideas for the session.
It works best if baby comes sleepy.
After the Session
After the session, I will carefully select and edit the most beautiful images from our time together. You will receive an online gallery where you can view and select your favorite images for printing and digital download.
Thank you once again for entrusting me with capturing these fleeting moments of your new little one's life. It's an absolute joy and privilege to be a part of this special time. If you have any questions or concerns leading up to the session, please don't hesitate to reach out. I'm here to ensure that your newborn session is a wonderful and memorable experience.
