*Important things to know about Studio Newborn Sessions
1. Posed photographs of your newborn, takes a lot of time and patience. I do like to keep a 2.5 hour maximum limit on the session in order to not over-stimulate or add too much stress on the baby.
2. If you have siblings in the photographs, it's a good idea to have a plan for them to leave the studio after their pictures especially if they are under the age of 5 years to ensure a quiet environment for your baby. Arrange to come in two vehicles with dad, a grandparent or friend leaving with your other child(ren).
3.The studio is kept very warm (about 85 degrees) please dress accordingly, possibly in layers if you choose to be in some of the photographs and then to be comfortable for the remainder of the session.
4. I ask you to please try to keep your newborn awake for an hour or 2 prior to your session.
5. For the best results, plan to bottle feed or nurse your baby upon arriving to the studio. A swivel (for privacy) glider chair and nursing pillow are provided at the studio for easy feeding and a changing table and wipes are provided for your convenience. While you feed your baby, I will be finalizing any set-up/wraps or items you bring along.
6. Please lotion your baby before arrival (to remove skin flakes) and avoid tight clothing like socks that will leave red marks on the skin.
7. Bring extra clothing for yourself and baby, in the event that we have any bodily fluid accidents while shooting. (There will be images when your baby is nude). Pee and poop accidents are likely to happen. Photographer will clean-up baby as needed and continue working.
8. BRING A PACIFIER. If you have not yet used a pacifier and we need one, photographer will supply one if you do not have one on hand.
9. We will start with any sibling/parent images first (if applicable). This way sibling(s) can exit the studio as soon as possible. Once your parent images are complete, you may sit down and relax, or step-out to the cool room if you need a break from the heat. Water will be provided but feel free to bring any other beverages or snacks along. There are some poses that I will need your assistance, in that event, I will instruct you on how to help. Otherwise, please stay a comfortable distance from the baby and photographer. Baby is sensitive to touch and smell (of mom) and we want to prevent baby from wanting to take another feed unless we need to.
10. Cell phones are permitted in the studio (on vibrate) you must inform the photographer if you choose to take any images so I can let you know if it's a good time and a safe distance from equipment. If the photographer is in the image please send a copy of the image to firstname.lastname@example.org to be used in behind the scenes albums.
