Well, Hello Mr Braxton. Thank you for coming today. I enjoyed meeting you.
During his session I used neutrals and blues-he was just a contented little chap.
When should we book??
I recommend that you schedule your newborn session PRIOR to your baby’s birth to ensure I will have a date open for you. Contact us during your second trimester and I'll pencil you in for a date range around your due date.
When does the session take place?
Newborn sessions must be scheduled within the first 14 days of life. During this time baby is still sleepy and very curly, alowing me to get the sweet newborn poses you see on my website.
Where does the session take place?
Newborn sessions take place in my home studio in Evergreen SW Calgary.
Here I have all the props, waps and equipment needed to create beautiful images of your new little one.
I will have the room in the studio heated to a warmer than normal temperature so be sure to wear something light and comfortable and be prepared to sweat a little. Newborns cannot regulate their body temperature therefore I heat up the studio so your baby can be comfortable when we remove their clothing.
If you plan on having some sibling images done, we’ll do those first and then the older kids we be able to leave with Grandma, Dad or whoever can watch them. Neutral, earthy tones are best for clothing and jeans with solid color shirts are preferred.
Newborn sessions can last anywhere from 2-3 hours. The key to getting good images is to be patient. Relax and try to enjoy the quiet while I photograph your new little love.
Poop is expected.
I expect your baby to poop and pee all over the blankets and props. It happens! I wash everything after each session.
If you can bring a pacifier for your baby, even if only for the session, this will make the work much easier. Baby’s often love to suck and it helps soothe them into the poses we are looking for and makes for easier transitions and getting them to sleep. If your baby won’t take a pacifier or you do no feel comfortable offering one, don’t worry. I can work with whatever is right for you and your family.
