  • How Can You Prepare for Your Newborn Session?
    First, we recommend booking with anticipation. Our photography studio takes a limited number of newborns a month, so make sure you pre-book, if at all possible. A pre session questionnaire will be sent after booking, so the studio staff is sure to design sets that you will love! You will receive an email with further instructions about your session before session day. Also, please plan to bring baby in between 4 and 8 days after birth. Some general tips for our clients include ensuring you keep your baby awake for a while before the photography session starts and to plan to feed baby a full feed, when you arrive at the studio, the morning of the session; that way, you will get those adorable poses you're looking for. Moreover, if they're full, they're likely to fall asleep faster, which will also get them those sleepy poses everyone loves. Finally, leave the rest to our photography experts. Our team is trained to work with babies and use safe posing techniques. Even if you have a high-risk baby, we'll know how to make the experience as comfortable as possible for everyone.
  • What Age Is Best for a Newborn Session?
    We strongly recommend that baby comes in for session between 4 and 8 days old, if at all possible. You can browse our site to have an idea of what poses we work with and the babies we've had in our photography studio.
