Where will our newborn session take place?
Newborn sessions are done in Emily’s home newborn studio where everything will be set up when you arrive. There is a parent coffee and snack bar available for clients while they rest and enjoy watching the session. Upon request, newborn sessions may also be done in the comfort of your home as a lifestyle type session.
How long will our session last?
A typical newborn sessions will last anywhere from 2.5 to 3 hours. This will allow time for feedings and lots of love and comforting.
Can I bring my newborn’s sibling for a few photos with the newborn?
Absolutely, in fact I love taking sibling shots! Family and sibling with newborn photos are included at no additional charge. But please note the following rules and requirements regarding these photos:
Family and sibling photos will take place at the beginning of the session and you must let Emily know before the session so she will be able to fully accomadate starting the session with these photos.
Parents are responsible for and must watch siblings at all times while Emily is working with and preparing newborn for photos.
Emily will work with the sibling and family for photos for no longer than 40 mintues before moving onto posed newborn only photos. After the family / sibling photos are completed the sibling must leave with a family member during the remaining session time dedicated to the newborn.
Once we have completed our photo shoot, how long can we expect before we see our images?
Emily will load your images into a password protected online gallery that you can share with friends and family approximately two weeks after your session. You will have five days to view your gallery before it expires. In those 5 days we will, together, choose and put together your custom birth announcement and discuss a la carte item purchases.
What if family members want to order as well?
You can share your gallery with friends and family and they are welcome to email me with any orders that they would like to place. I will give them pricing and send their orders directly to them.
How long can we expect before our order comes in after our gallery is sent out?
Prints and cards can take anywhere from 2-3 weeks to come in and canvas gallery wraps and albums can take up to 6-8 weeks. Together you and Emily will arrange how will best suite getting your order to you.
What is the best age to have my newborn photographed?
Emily prefers to photograph newborn babies within the first seven to ten days of life. Although that day range is very flexible depending on newborn arrival and weight.
What should we wear?
The best option is to coordinate colors without being too “matchy”. Textures and prints are always fun and layers work well in photographs. Emily’s suggestion is to pick one standard color and work everyone else’s outfits off that one color.
