Hi, I’m Holly! Congratulations on your sweet newborn & thanks for booking your session with me!
Here’s some information for you!
Newborn Sessions can take anywhere from 1-3 hours for the baby alone. The best way
to prepare for a session is to make sure baby is fed right before our session so that
he/she can get into a deep sleep for those dreamy, sweet photos! It’s best to wait until I am there setting up to feed baby, that way we can get the most out of our time! If you are coming to my studio, please remember to bring formula or plan ahead to nurse your babe during our session.! I can provide privacy for nursing moms as well.
If I am traveling to you: Newborns need a warm and cozy environment to sleep well, so make sure the air conditioner is not set too cool. I will sometimes bring a space heater if necessary to keep baby warm near the set up.
If I am traveling to you, a well-lit room is essential for getting beautiful photos. I prefer a room with a sliding glass door or large window. Please let me know if you cannot accommodate this and we can come up with another plan, such as coming to me or doing an outdoor session!
I bring tons of fabrics, wraps, baskets, flooring, backdrops, etc. to each shoot. Indoor & Outdoor!
If you have something special to you that you would like included in your newborn’s photos, don’t hesitate! I’d love to incorporate sentimental items like a special outfit, headband, stuffed animal, etc. If you can, let me know about it before hand and I can coordinate the set-up as well!
I love to include Parents in a few photos with their brand new baby! If you would like this, please be prepared to be photographed also 🙂
If there are others you would like in photos, such as siblings or pets, please let me know! I am happy to include them but it can sometimes make our session longer. I spend the first hour getting as many photos of the baby in 3-4 different set ups. Depending on baby, we can get three set ups done in that time. They do sometimes need to eat or be changed, which comes with the territory, but can add more time. Additional hours after the first hour are $50.
It is listed in our contract that your baby’s photos can be used for marketing Think Good Things Photography. If you have an issue with this for personal or religious reasons, please let me know! I like to tag parents/family members when I post, so don’t be shy and send me a friend request (if I don’t get to you first!)
