This is a time when new moms and dads get to sit back and relax and watch the magic happen! You should plan on 2 to 3 1/2 hours, which allows time for feedings, diaper changes, cuddles and rocking off to sleep.
I tend to book up quickly, so it's never too early to schedule your session date! (especially during the holiday season). You can reserve your date by calling or texting me on my cell phone: (949) 677-4717 or sending an e-mail from the 'Contact' page.
It’s best to photograph newborns within the first 5 to 10 days of life. This is when babies are especially sleepy and tolerant of being positioned into the cutest poses. Since the big day is always a little unpredictable, for Newborn Sessions I'll reserve a general date-range rather than a specific date. Then you can just let me know as soon as baby arrives, and we’ll settle on the final date for creating your dreamy newborn portraits!
Some families choose to have the portraits taken at their home. Reasons vary from being afraid to take the baby out, not having vaccinations to wanting to incorporate the house décor and interiors into the photos. Either way, I am excited every time. Having your session at home allows me to get creative in a whole new way.
