How soon after birth should the session be scheduled?
It’s best to shoot newborns between 3-14 days of birth. If you wait until you have your baby to contact me, I may not have a slot for you within that time frame. Later than 2 weeks old and the baby will have not only grow and change considerably since birth but babies become more active and are not as easily posable for the session. They also have a tendency to develop baby acne after 15 days old. I understand that scheduling a newborn session depends when the baby decides to make an appearance into this world. For this type of shoot, please let me know your approximate due date and I will block of a window of time to ensure your spot.
My baby is already born. Is it too late to schedule a newborn session?
Even though I recommend that newborn sessions take place within the first 2 weeks of life, I’m confident that I can capture some great images for you, regardless of your child’s age. There is not a guarantee that all the newborn positions will work, but I come prepared with a lot of tricks up my sleeve.
Do you provide all of the blankets, backdrops, and props?
Yes! I provide all of that for you, but you are more than welcome to bring headbands or outfits to use during the photo shoot. It’s great if you want to use an old family blanket, stuffed animal or anything you desire. If you would like to incorporate certain prop, you can always ask to see if I already have it also.
Do you really photograph the baby without a diaper on?
Poop. Well, it happens. Anyone knowingly asks you to take your baby’s diaper off and lay him or her down on a white fluffy blanket should know the risk that they just invited. My arsenal includes lots of burp clothes, cloth diapers, laundry stain sticks and trash bags for soiled props. All items each are washed in Dreft immediately after each photo shoot.
Can a session be rescheduled?
I know life is unpredictable. Please give me as much notice as possible and we will reschedule your session. I’m flexible to work with your needs.
What is the turnaround time to receive my images?
Within 2-3 weeks of your session, your images will be uploaded on the Client Proofing area of my website and I will send you a link with a pin number to access them. If you need them sooner, please discuss with me your needs.
What format will the photos come in?
All your photos will be ready to view in a JPEG format with a print release included.
Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes and they make excellent baby shower presents also! Please contact me for more information.
What form of payment do you accept?
Cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express are all accepted. Please make checks payable to Awesomesauce Photography, LLC.
