It is highly recommended that newborn sessions be scheduled under 2 weeks old, under 10 days old is best. This allows me to truly capture the beauty and serenity of your newborn. As babies get older it becomes more difficult to get them to sleep and achieve those precious sleepy poses. Please call or email to schedule your session before the baby arrives to insure availability. We will tentatively schedule your session and when the baby arrives we will schedule a specific date and time. I leave appointments available each week for new arrivals.
Before you get to your session, prepare to be there for a while. Bring a well stocked diaper bag as well as snacks for yourself. Between feedings, diaper changes and getting your baby to sleep, this session can last anywhere from one to four hours. Expect your baby to be naked almost the entire time, as well. Don’t worry, an experienced newborn photographer has their studio set to a temperature to keep your angel comfortable while he or she is naked.
Session fee is due at the time of booking to reserve your date and time and is non-refundable. Should you need to cancel with 48 hours of your appointment I will apply the session fee toward a future session. You will be invoiced through PayPal and payment is due to guarantee your slot.
**If your child is sick, please call to reschedule. Sick children do not like to be photographed and we know that you will not love your portraits nearly as much as if he or she was in good health. If you must cancel, please try to do as soon as possible.
Session for a Smooth Session and Beautiful Pictures
- Please be on time. Due to there being multiple sessions scheduled per day, being on time is important and appreciated. Remember, starting late means you will have fewer images to choose from.
- Please have your children fed and well rested before the session. Children tend to get grouchy and less willing to participate if they are hungry and tired. Trust me this will come across in the photographs.
- Choose clothing options carefully. Ill-fitting, stained or wrinkled clothing do not show well in photographs. Solid or coordinating patterns work best. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
- Parents, it is your responsibility to keep your children under control during the session. If your child chooses to constantly act up and be disrespectful, Krista will have no other choice but to stop the session. If the session is stopped due to this reason, there will be no refunds. Also, please keep watch of your children around lighting, backdrops, etc. We appreciate the playful nature that children possess, however, playing with the equipment is not permitted due to safety and cost reasons. Thank you in advance for understanding.
