MATERNITY & NEWBORN
WHAT TO WEAR
New Moms. Selecting clothing for your first postpartum photo shoot may seem daunting. Rest assured – we know how to pose you so that you look your best and we capture the bond between you and baby. We think simple clothing is best for the new mom, without distracting patterns. White, cream, soft pink or even charcoal and black are all great choices!
Newborn. We love organic fabrics. Nothing says baby more than a plain white onesie and a soft swaddle blanket …..or nothing at all (tastefully of course)! Typically we caution against “outfits,” as they usually overwhelm your newborn and alter skin tones. If you have a favorite outfit, bring it along for the end of the session and we will make sure we capture a few images.
Families & Siblings. When it comes to “what to wear” with families, not all the pieces have to match, but they should coordinate. In studio, keeping similar neutrals (black, white, khaki, grey, brown) works well and remains subtle and timeless. For sibling photos, this can go either way. We’ve had beautifully coordinated “white t-shirts and jeans” sessions as well as ones with matching handmade t-shirts/onesies.
GENERAL MATERNITY AND NEWBORN FAQs
- How early should I schedule my newborn's session?
Please contact us during your second trimester to reserve a spot on our calendar. Once your deposit is paid, we will send you an adorable welcome packet to help you plan (and get really excited) for your upcoming session(s)!
- Where will my newborn session be located?
Newborn sessions are held inside the studio Monday – Friday, preferably during daylight hours. Our schedules fill up quickly, so we only take a limited number of newborns each month to ensure timeless images of your little one.
- How does payment work?
We offer a payment plan, which requires a $100 deposit to schedule and then the remaining balance is due before the newborn session, or split between each session if you're interested in the BABY PLAN, so you're not paying everything up front.
- What is included in a baby session?
Pricing includes the session, props, online proofs, and 15 digital images, with a print release. There is also the option purchase the entire gallery of images for $59, but there's no requirement for additional purchases, ever. And, the BABY PLAN includes additional family/sibling poses at no extra cost (so you can get everything done at once)!
