How do newborn sessions work in your studio?

Sessions begin in the morning with baby girl or baby boy rested, well fed, and sleepy.  The session takes 2-3 hours to get the perfect photo.  It takes patience, serious soothing skills, and determination to place their tiny hands in the right positions.

When sessions are complete, enthusiastic parents are given plenty of time to feed their little one one.  Then change them into an outfit, and prepare for the drive home from the photo studio.  Near me are local restaurants that many mom’s and dad’s go to afterwards for some lunch.

What do I need to bring to the session?

Most new parents ask “What do we need to bring to a baby photo session?”  The answer surprises most of them.  Only what you would when going out of the house for the morning.  Parents need only bring diapers & wipes, a change of clothes for baby, and milk.

All the wraps, knit outfits, blankets, props, and loveies are already at Jennifer’s studio.  She has collected them over the many years she has been a photographer.  Her coordinating wraps and fluffy furs are included in the cost of your session fees.  As well as all the unique and interesting props like her wine barrel cradle and plush button tufted baby bed.
