Newborn Preparation Guide
I cannot wait to photograph your little one(s) soon!
For Studio Sessions:
I put together a preparation guide for you to look over. The tips and tricks mentioned here will help baby be sleepy and in-turn make for a successful newborn session!
You do not need to bring anything for baby to wear, I have wraps, head-bows, more buckets than one person should have and more! But If you have something you would like baby pictured in or with, just let me know and send me a picture so I can plan ahead.
Please let me know if you have any questions and if you have any color preferences when it comes to wraps/ props. I will be sure to have some options ready to go before you arrive.
Address is 4440 N. 109th St. Wauwatosa WI 53225
Please stay in your car, I will come get you. We will walk around back together and then head down to my studio (located in my rec-room) If you have any questions please let me know!
For In-home Lifestyle Sessions:
I put together a preparation guide for you to look over. The tips and tricks mentioned here will help baby get super sleepy and in-turn make for a successful newborn session!
You do not need to have anything ready for baby to wear, I will bring wraps & head-bows. I can also bring buckets/ blankets if you would like. If you have something you would like baby pictured in or with, just let me know and send me a picture so I can plan ahead.
Most sessions are done in the nursery, parents room, or living room. Whichever has the best natural light. You do not need to clean for me! We can move things out of a picture easy peezy.
Please let me know if you have any questions and if you have any color preferences when it comes to wraps/ props.
[what I need from you...]
Try to keep baby awake before your session as long as you can. The goal is for baby to be super sleepy during the session.
Please feed before the session if you live close or right when you arrive. We can take breaks during the session if needed as well. I have a bottle warmer or boopy if needed.
The session will last about 2 hours unless your session is outdoors.
Lifestyle sessions give you a little more freedom to do things around the house after family photos. Or a little time to relax while your little one is getting their individual portraits done.
Studio sessions last about the same amount of time and can take some time. Since photos are mainly of baby alone you will have some time to relax.
If baby takes a paci please bring it along- this will help soothe the baby to sleep when/ if needed.
Lifestyle sessions- crank the heat before the session begins, we want your little one to be as comfy as possible.
Have extra diapers & burp cloths ready just in case. Babies are unpredictable. Especially when they eat right before a session.
Feel free to bring additional accessories to help personalize the session. Could be a favorite scarf, blanket, or toy.
Be prepared to be in some photos with baby. I suggest wearing a simple outfit without too many distracting patterns (logos, prints, text)
