What do you provide at the newborn session?
We provide props, wraps, outfits and the photographer.
What should we (the parents) bring?
Extra diapers, wipes, pacifier and any props/heirlooms you want to use.
How do we prep before the session?
Give baby a bath the morning of the session. Dress them in something comfortable. Try to feed them before you leave the house. It’s ok if they fall asleep on the way to the studio.
Can Parents + Siblings Participate?
Yes, except with the newborn Tiny ($250) session. The reason is because the newborn tiny only includes 10 images. Family + Siblings shots usually are about 5-10 images alone. There aren’t enough images to do both family and newborn. But the newborn classic ($450) is perfect for people wanting images of mom/dad and/or siblings as well as newborn alone.
What is a Themed vs Non-Themed Session?
Themed sessions are planned ahead of time. We provide a one-of-a-kind set for baby. If you want a woodland theme, we create a woodland set. If you want a sports theme, we create a custom sports set, want a disney set, we will create a custom disney set. These include backdrops, props, outfit for baby. If you’re wanted a themed set, you would purchase the Whimsy Newborn Session. It includes additional images.
Classic or Whimsy Session?
Even if you don’t want a themed set, you can purchase the whimsy newborn session. It includes 30 images. So, we can do more photos of baby alone or more with family. The classic includes 20 images.
Cat is COVID and TDAP (Whopping Cough) vaccinated. The studio is regularly cleaned and props/wraps/outfits are cleaned between sessions. Cat has also been working with newborns for over 10 years. She trained in newborn safety and posing from the nations top newborn photographers.
How long will the session last?
It depends on your baby. If baby sleeps throughout the session, it can go as fast as an hour. If baby wakes or doesn’t want to sleep at all, it can last several hours. I would block off 3 hours for this session. However, the average session length is 1.5 hours.
