I recommend scheduling your newborn session for a day when your baby is between 6-14 days old.  During that time babies are most sleepy and easy to pose. I can certainly capture your baby's newborn photos after 14 days but it will be harder to pose and keep the baby asleep. 

Newborn sessions last anywhere from three to four hours.  If your baby struggles to stay asleep and needs multiple feedings/diaper changes, the session will last closer to four hours. 

I provide a few props (wraps, headbands, outfits, blankets, baskets, etc.) to use during the session. If you have something in mind you'd like to use for your little one, then I encourage you to bring it along. This may be a hat, teddy bear, blanket, toy, sports team item, etc. Incorporating items that mean something to you or your family will make your session even more special. 

I use natural lighting for newborn sessions and take the photos indoors. We can schedule the session in my home studio located on the southwest side of Cedar Rapids. Or if you would prefer to stay in, we can have the session in the comfort of your home as long as you have an area that receives natural light. This is usually a living room or kitchen area that has a large window or glass door.  In order to capture your baby's first few moments in the best lighting, I ask that it is an area that doesn't receive direct sunlight. 

*This session fee covers one newborn. Each additional newborn is $25. Sales tax will be added on top of all prices listed.
