Newborn Session

Newborn babies first photos are so important as they change quickly. Capturing this special time in your life creates such beautiful memories. I suggest babies come when they are 7-14 days new. This session can take 2 to 3 hours to allow plenty of time for baby to eat and have diaper changes. Use any 2 of my different props such as baskets, buckets and beds as well as traditional poses. All clothing, hats, headbands and wraps are included in the colors that you love for baby. Includes parent/sibling photos. A really sweet time creating something beautiful for years to come.

Newborn FAQ's

The morning of your session try to keep your baby awake as much as possible and feed him or her just before you leave the house.  Putting lotion on any areas of dry skin will help with the editing process.  I have warm blankets, burp cloths, a bottle warmer, extra diapers, wipes, and lotion.  There is coffee, tea, water and snacks available as well as a comfy rocking chair. Please bring in a clean pair of shoes to change into when you arrive at the studio.

You will not need to bring any clothing for your baby as I have outfits and wraps available for your baby.  We will discuss colors, textures and styles you like and I will choose some options for him or her.  If your baby uses a pacifier for soothing you can bring it along to help settle your baby. 

A full Newborn Session takes up to 3 hours.  Why so long?  Between wrapping, changing, settling, feeding and changing diapers it can take 21/2 to 3 hours.  If you are bringing siblings it adds a little time to the family portion of the session.  The wrapped Petite Session takes up to one hour.

Family photos are done first and then siblings.  This typically takes 20-40 minutes from the time you arrive.  I do have soft blocks, books and children’s magazines in the studio for them to play with while they wait for me to wrap the baby.  Once we are done with sibling photos the best thing would be to take them home (bring 2 vehicles) or I am 7 miles away from Belfast and there are lots of things to do for the remainder of the session there.  Restaurants, parks, the pet store, Belfast Free Library and a toy store (Out on a Whimsey) that is very fun! 

If you choose a sneak peek, it will be posted on Social Media within 3 days.  Your final images will be delivered in an online gallery by your email that you can download, order prints and share on social media within one month.  You can add family members to the gallery by their email and they can also order prints in the gallery

A full Newborn session offers 10 digital downloads and the Petite session offers 5 digital downloads.  More will be added to the gallery than what is included.  This gives you the option to choose the ones you love. Additional images can be purchased for $15 each.  You do not have to purchase additional images as you can order prints of ANY and ALL of them in the gallery.  The entire gallery can be released for an additional fee depending upon how many images are in the gallery total.  Please ask me and I will give you a price after they have all been edited.

When you come to your session I have you sign a Print Release that has a one year retention policy.   That means you have up to a year to download your images and get them on a hard drive or thumb drive that you own. The images will always be in the gallery and if you lose your link or email I am happy to resend it to you.

Maternity FAQ's

The best time is at 32-34 weeks gestation.  This is before you get too uncomfortable and the chances are lower that you will go into labor this early.  Your bump is the perfect size to photograph at about 33 weeks.!

You will not need to bring any clothing for your baby as I have outfI suggest a flowy, pretty dress you are comfortable in and a casual dress or outfit.  Typically you will have to change in your car if there are no public restrooms so layering is helpful.  I have a handful of dresses to offer.  Feel free to inquire as to colors and sizes.  A few online companies that I love are Lukalula , BumpShow, or Shein.  Some of my clients have had great luck on Amazon.com and I have been pleasantly surprised at the quality as well.its and wraps available for your baby.  We will discuss colors, textures and styles you like and I will choose some options for him or her.  If your baby uses a pacifier for soothing you can bring it along to help settle your baby. 

By scheduling your session at 32-34 weeks, we can hopefully avoid missing your session, however babies can be unpredictable!  I would apply your retainer toward a future session like a Newborn, Milestone or Cake Smash session.

I have a studio located in Waldo, near Belfast that we can use.  I always suggest an outdoor session whenever possible.  In my opinion, you get more variety, however an indoor session with some gorgeous gowns is beautiful too.  Also, if you have other children they are happier outdoors where they can run and play.

When you come to your session I have you sign a Print Release that has a one year retention policy.   That means you have up to a year to download your images and get them on a hard drive or thumb drive that you own.  The images will always be in the gallery and if you lose your link or email I am happy to resend it to you.
