Newborn shoots are best done within the first two weeks of your baby's life, ideally within the first 10 days. A younger baby will be more sleepy and thus easier to pose and handle. We recommend you feed your baby at least 2 hours prior to your shoot and then again just before the shoot so as to make sure your baby is well fed and happy. Also try and keep your baby awake for an hour or so before the session so that it will be nice and sleepy during the session. A newborn session can range from 1.5 - 2 hrs and making a tentative booking well in advance ensures you have a booking secure once baby is born. Of course we understand that some babies come a bit earlier or a bit later and if that happens we will accommodate your needs. Newborn session generally happens in the comfort of your home and it's advisable to have the house at a comfortable temperature, dressing your baby in light, loose clothing to make it easier to undress and keep them asleep. If you have specific items or props you would like to be included in your photographs please let us know beforehand so we can plan out our session and we will also bring along an array of wraps and props to be used during the session. If there are any other siblings or family that you would like to include in the session we recommend we get those photographs done first so that we can continue the session with baby alone quietly.
