What to Expect
My main goal is your baby's comfort. I am extremely casual during my sessions and aim to make you feel like you have a friend there with you. Please don't hesitate to bring Pinterest ideas and poses you love so that we can recreate them. I photograph at least a couple of newborn babies every week, so I am familiar with how unpredictable newborns can be, and am flexible to allow time for changing, feedings, and soothing.
You are welcome to come to my studio in Fairfield, or I can come to you! If you'd prefer me to come to you, all I need is a roughly 3ft wide space against a light wall preferably near a window. Natural light is our goal, and I bring all types of backgrounds and props to make the most of our space. Please read on for more details!
How to prepare
Outfits + Props
I will have my arsenal of baby outfits / wraps / props with me, but a personal touch is always a great idea. Please feel free to bring your favorite nursery decor, a favorite stuffed animal, favorite outfit/s, etc. Or on the contrary, just bring your baby and I can take care of the rest!
I love coming up with themed ideas! I have had clients who love Disney, golfing, Harry Potter, etc. come up with some fun ideas to infuse their personality and hobbies into the newborn photos. Let me know any ideas you have ahead of time, or just bring some items with you that you think would be fun to use in photos.
We can absolutely include older siblings or Mom / Dad in our newborn session. Please let me know ahead of time so I can plan for this.
Happy Babies are the Key!
I usually can get through three outfit / setups during a newborn session, depending on how happy we can keep baby. Please feed and burp baby right before our session so that we have a full belly (aka a sleepy baby!).
payment + turnaround on gallery
I accept cash or payment via Venmo at the time of our session.
My turnaround is two weeks from the date of our session, and I always aim to get them back sooner!
All images will be edited in my style as a finished product, with complimentary light smoothing of skin and removal of small, non permanent facial imperfections. I do not release the unedited/RAW images as they are not a representation of my work, thank you for understanding.
Please let me know if I can help you at all in your preparations!
how do i print my photos?
Good question! You can purchase directly through your gallery, and the prices are super affordable. Simply add each photo to your cart and choose what size you'd like, and you can even crop them or turn them black and white. I can't wait to see which ones are your favorites!
