Newborn & Children's Session Guide
If you are expecting your first or fourth child or documenting your growing toddler I am thrilled you have chosen to document this important time in their life. Childhood is so fleeting...days go fast, nights can be sleep deprived and next thing you know they have grown. These images will take you back to those sweet times of little toes, fuzzy hair and baby cheeks.
When choosing when to book your newborn session I highly encourage booking at least 3 months before your due date. I only take a limited number of newborns a month to ensure availability incase of early or late arrival. Booking is based on your EDD and once baby arrives notify me as soon as possible and we will get your session scheduled. Newborn sessions are typically done Monday-Wednesday at my home studio which is located in the lower level of my home in Freedom, WI. In home lifestyle newborn sessions can be done in the comfort of your own home as well.
I provide everything your newborn will need for their session. I have wraps, props, head bands, and bonnets. I do have a small assortment of mothers dresses and siblings dresses/rompers that my clients may use during their session. I also offer a styling service online to help with attire.
I try my best to do newborn sessions between 5-14 days old but some older babies do just as fine.
During your newborn session you are welcome to relax on the couch, watch tv or even close your eyes while I take care of everything.
Once your session is booked you will also receive a newborn tip email to help you prepare for your session.
Just when you think you know love, something little comes along to remind you just how big it really is.
Milestone sessions are offered at three months and up.
Siblings may be added at $25 per child. These sessions may be done in studio or outdoors 1-2 hours before sunset, weather permitting.
Cake smash sessions are offered as an add on to milestone sessions. Parents are required to purchase the cake due to the risk of food allergies.
During milestone sessions I like to follow your child's lead and keep it candid with a couple posed images sprinkled in. I encourage them to sing, dance, skip and pick flowers. After all these little moments are real life and the little details we capture are my favorite.
Wardrobe adds such a valuable component to the way you will view your images. The colors will breathe life into the image, whether it be warm and colorful, or calm and peaceful.. The textures, layers, mixing patterns, accessories…it is such and important element and I want to help you pull all these pieces together! I offer a styling website service to all my clients who book and also offer a client closet with dresses for mom and toddler clothing. My closet is always growing and I welcome you to make an appointment before your session to come try on anything. The style and select service I offer is very user friendly and I would be happy to send you outfit suggestions if you wish. Upon booking a link & code will be sent to you to begin the styling process.
