WE ARE HAPPY TO ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTIONS

What is necessary for a comfortable newborn session?

 

Newborn babies are very sensitive to temperature changes and therefore we always suggest to keep the temperature warm. This is especially true if you need to change the baby. They love comfort and if the temperature is warm enough they may sleep through the whole session! We also offer a changing table for sessions in our studio. If you wish to breastfeed your baby, we have a nursing pillow for you. You are always welcome to take time to feed and change your baby. This time will not count towads your session, as we want both parents and babies to feel relaxed, comfortable and happy!

 

When is the best time to do your newborn session?

 

The ideal time for a baby photoshoot is between 5 to 10 days. Newborn babies sleep very tightly and it is easy for them to be posing in those cute buskets or in your hands. When they are tiny like this, they look really cute! Experienced parents know that babies grow so fast. The first weeks fly by.  That is why we recommend to parents to schedule the newborn photoshoot during pregnancy,  to make sure you do not miss this important moment! We always suggest that parents and siblings join the session.  

 

What If you have a preemie baby or did not book your session in time?

 

Please do not worry! We try to accomodate last minute bookings if our schedule allows us to do so. We are also happy to take photos for your preemie baby whenever time is good. Our photographer is also a certified birth doula with lots of eperience handling the preterm newborn babies.
 
What kind of light or other equipment is used during the newborn session?


We care about our newborn models and try to use natural light whenever possible. Our newborn photostudio in Falls Church offers great windows from floor to ceiling with lots of natural light. If you are planning an in home session, please make sure your space has access to daylight and big windows. Light is essential for high quality newborn pictures. From our side, we use great lenses and the best equipment to capture the cutest smiles of your new baby, first hair, long lashes or tiny baby feet.
 
What time of the day is good for newborn photoshoot?

 

We want to use as much of a daylight as possible. It is important to give us a call prior to scheduling the date and time of your session so that we can make sure to include the important moments of your daily routine (sleeping, feeding, etc)  into the photoshoot. Usually, we prefer 9-10 am in the morning. Please let us know if your baby or other members of the family have any special needs to accomodate you better.


How long does the session take?

 

Our main priority is the comfort of your baby. Usually it takes 30 min to 1 hour to do one outfit. If the baby is sleeping, it might be faster. We suggest to not plan anything for that day and keep it free after the session. The usual time for your newborn photoshoot is between 2 to 3 hours. But we want you and your baby to be comfortable, so the time to prepare your baby for the session, time to feed, change and hold the baby is not counted towards your session. If you plan a longer photoshoot with lots of different outfits, we know how to make it easier for you and your baby and we are happy to offer our best skills to you and your baby! Total time of the longer session might be about 4 to 6 hours.
 

What about the safety of the baby?

 

We offer high quality skills where your newborn photographer is also a certified doula CD(DONA) and has 10 years of professional experience working with newborns starting from preemie babies in NICU. We are also certified by RED CROSS to offer first aid if needed. All poses we may offer during the session are totally safe and comfortable for your baby. We know exactly how to work with newborns starting from general positions where the baby feels safe and comfortable like in a womb and also making sure your baby's feet and even baby's fingers are placed comfortably in your hands, buckets or on our professional posing backdrop. We also offer help with swaddling your baby and may use this teachnique if your baby is premature or very sensitive to touch. We can also help with changing the diaper, dressing up or soothing the baby. Our studio is equipped with special fan to make the temperature right for newborn. And we use a professional baby shoosher to make sure the baby feels truly comfortable while sleeping.

 

How many people can be present during newborn session?

It is up to you to decide if you wish to have the whole family present during the newborn session or if you want exclusively newborn photos to be taken. We always suggest parents to be in the pictures as your baby will grow and will want to see you when they were small. We are also skilled and happy to pose older brothers and sisters even if they are 1-2 years old. If you wish to include grandparents or other members of your family, you are welcome to do so. Dogs and cats can also be a part of your session. Please note that we are not trained to work with pets and it is up to you to ensure your pet is present in the picture the way you wish to see them. Please make sure to talk to us before your photoshoot about how many people are going to be present to accommodate you better.

 

What do I need to do to prepare for the newborn session?

We have a wide variety of outfits for you and your baby, as well as buckets and backdrops. You are more than welcome to use your own if you wish! 

Please note that additional one time accessories for your session (cakes, flowers, balloons etc) are to be purchased separately for your session.
