Maternity sessions typically take about 1-2 hours. I love to photograph growing bellies outside in the natural light however, in the colder weather sessions can also take place in the studio. I aim to schedule your maternity session at about 35 weeks. All mothers-to-be feel differently about their changing bodies, and therefore I will photograph you in whatever wardrobe you feel comfortable in! I also welcome spouses, partners and siblings to join you in capturing these special memories. Please feel free to discuss any ideas you wish to incorporate into your session.
~ Newborn sessions ~
Newborn sessions normally book out several months in advance, so it is best to book your newborn session while you are still pregnant. Once booked, your due date will be added to my calendar. Then as soon as baby arrives, let me know so that I can schedule the exact date and time of the session. Ideally, newborn sessions need to be done between 5 and 14-days-old, so it is imperative that you contact me as soon as possible after your little one arrives to schedule your session. After they pass the 14-day mark, they become less sleepy and much harder to pose. However, if you have found this site after your baby is born, I will do my best to try to squeeze you in as soon as possible pending availability.
Newborn sessions generally take about 3 hours. It is essential that we take our cues from baby and keep them well fed and comfortable. They will usually need to take at least one break to nurse or feed during the session. I will keep the studio at about 80 degrees to keep baby nice and warm while they are naked. Please take this into consideration when getting ready for your session as you might want to wear thinner layers so you can peel them off if you get warm! It is a good idea to bring a change of clothing not only for baby, but also for yourself! It is almost guaranteed that there will be an accident of some kind while baby is naked!! Also, make sure to bring plenty of diapers and wipes. I will provide baby wraps, hats, headbands and props for your newborn session and so all you need to do is to take this opportunity to relax and have a little quiet time!
