what to expect


Planning your session

Newborn sessions take place in my home studio located in Clarence.  

Sessions take place when baby is 7-12 days old. At this time, baby is still very sleepy and willing to be moved into different positions.  Upon booking, your due date is penciled into my calendar.

Once you contact me upon baby’s arrival, we finalize our session date and time. Sessions typically last 2.5 hours.  I follow baby’s lead with lots of time allowed for soothing and feeding, etc.  

A successful newborn session requires a content and sleepy baby.  There are numerous ways we accomplish this.  

The studio will be very warm and we will work to keep baby’s tummy full.  I will also have un-opened soothie pacifiers for your baby.  It’s very important to allow me to use a pacifier during the session as it is extremely helping in posing your baby—even if your baby doesn’t normally or won’t be using a pacifier outside of the session.

Newborn sessions are scheduled on a weekday morning following baby’s birth at my home studio in Clarence, New York.
