Newborn Session – FAQ

When should I book my newborn session?

It is best to book while you are still pregnant. I only schedule a limited number of newborns each month to leave room for babies being born early or late. Booking early ensures a spot on my calender. However if you have just had your baby and would like to book, please contact me and I will do my best to fit you in.


When is the best age to photograph a newborn?

I typically photograph babies in the first 14 days or so to ensure a nice sleepy baby, that is easy to pose.


How do you schedule newborns since I don’t know what day my baby will be born?

When you book a session, I will pencil you in on your due date and then I ask you to contact me as soon as you can after baby is born so we can arrange a day and time for your session. Please note – newborn sessions are scheduled Monday through Friday mornings at 10am. Weekend sessions can be accommodated me for an extra fee. Please inquire.


How long does a typical newborn session take?

The newborn session typically takes about two hours. Please plan to stay for three hours just in case baby takes a bit longer to settle.


Do you provide the props?

Yes! I have many props to choose from.


Where does the newborn session take place?

The newborn session takes place in my home studio in Guelph. I have comfy seating  for parents and nursing pillows if you need it.  Please feel free to have a seat and relax while you watch me pose your baby. This should be a relaxing, enjoyable experience for you! Most parents ooh and ahh as they see how adorable their baby looks in the sweet poses and hats/headbands etc. 🙂


Can parents and/or siblings be in some of the photos?

Absolutely! The focus is baby but we can definitely do some sibling and/or parent shots as well.


What should I wear to my session?

Once you have booked a session, I will send a full information package with detailed instructions on how to prepare and what to wear.


Can I bring my own props?

Absolutely! It is definitely not necessary as I have lots. But if you have something sentimental or something you have purchased, you are welcome to bring it along. Just let me know at the beginning of your session.


When will I receive my images?

I typically post a sneak peek on my facebook page within a day or two of your session. Please feel free to tag yourselves, share or use as profile photo. All images will be edited and delivered within 2-3 weeks after your session.
