NEWBORN SESSION Q&A
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY NEWBORN SESSION? I recommend contacting me while you’re still pregnant, at least 4 weeks prior to your due date. My calendar fills up quickly, so contacting me in advance will ensure that I am able to reserve a date for you.
HOW OLD SHOULD MY NEWBORN BE? Newborn sessions are best when done before 14 days of age, and the majority of the beautiful babies you see in my galleries were under 10 days new. Babies over 14 days of age tend to be more alert, less flexible, and more difficult to pose. However, I do not turn down older babies.
WHERE IS THE NEWBORN SESSION DONE? All newborn sessions will be done in my in home studio in McKinney, TX.
DO YOU PROVIDE ALL OF THOSE ADORABLE LITTLE HATS, HEADBANDS, AND PROPS? Yes! Buying these cute props is half the fun for me. I have a wide selection to choose from, so you don’t need to bring anything.
SHOULD I BRING ANY OUTFITS? Newborn sessions are done with baby in the nude, but we will choose some cute hats, headbands, and blankets to add colour and texture to the images. If you want the baby to wear something or have something special to bring to the session, please feel free to do so. I love to incorporate special items in your babies session.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY NEWBORN SESSION? I will email/mail to you a Newborn Checklist and your session is booked. This checklist will help you prepare for a successful newborn session.
HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD I ALLOW FOR MY NEWBORN SESSION? This generally depends on the baby but newborn sessions can last anywhere from 2-3.5 hours. Plenty of time is allowed for feeding and snuggling.
HOW MUCH WILL THE INVESTMENT BE FOR A NEWBORN SESSION? The Newborn Session fee is $200 and that includes my time, talent, access to hundreds of adorable props, a minimum of 20 retouched images in a gallery and a custom slideshow to music that is presented at your very own Session Premiere. Careful consideration has been given to price so I am able to offer each and every client the very best customer service, creativity for your session and most importantly, a great experience. Please Contact me for more information on the total investment costs for your precious new baby.
