Your newborn session is done in the first 2 weeks of your baby’s life, while your newborn is still super tiny and sleepy. Your session is custom designed & tailored with you in mind. A unique one of a kind session that is created to celebrate welcoming your child into your family, and to leave you with memories and art that you will cherish forever.
How it works is that a “spot” is held for you on your due date. Once you let me know that baby has arrived, I juggle my schedule to get you in at the perfect time, usually when baby is about 5 to 8 days old.
The studio is quite small and very warm (like a Bikram Yoga session temperature). I strongly suggest you dress in layers. Sessions typically run 3 hours, as we take lots of breaks for baby to nurse and spend lots of time waiting for baby to fall back asleep. Patience is key!
There is water, coffee or tea and a few light snacks available. Mom is encouraged to sit back and relax, while I will take care of baby, with the exception of feeding time of course.
Many clients pre-book their sessions several months in advance, however there may be last minute spots available if Baby’s already arrived!
