WHEN DO I NEED TO SCHEDULE MY NEWBORN SESSION?
Please call BEFORE your newborn arrives. Michelle typically schedules 3-4 weeks in advance, and she only takes a limited number of newborn sessions per month. We will schedule a tentative session day based on your due date, and then finalize your appointment after your baby has arrived.
WHAT DO I NEED TO PROVIDE FOR MY NEWBORN SESSION?
We have everything you will need for your newborn's session. During a phone consultation you can express any selections you would like to use and Michelle will do her best to use props, blankets, hats etc, that match your style.
HOW OLD SHOULD MY NEWBORN BE AT THE TIME OF THE SESSION?
Newborns are best photographed between 5-12 days old. That is when they are the most sleepy and are the easiest to pose. Once a baby reaches 14 days they tend to stay awake longer and are more aware of their surroundings.
DO I NEED TO DO ANYTHING TO PREPARE FOR MY SESSION?
Michelle will email a list of tips and final details once baby arrives and your session date/time is scheduled.
HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD I ALLOW FOR MY SESSION?
An average newborn session lasts around 2 hours but every newborn is different and the time may vary.
CAN I REQUEST SPECIFIC POSES OR IMAGES FOR MY SESSION?
You can certainly let Michelle know which poses or images you are drawn to and like, but Michelle can not guarantee that your baby will be able to pose in any specific pose. These little ones are in complete control and ultimately determine how a session will go. It is important to speak with Michelle and let her know what you are desiring and she will do her best to accommodate you.
