What is the first step to plan a newborn session?
It is best to contact us while you are still pregnant. We know babies come when they are ready but it is always best to have a tentative spot ready for you as we do fill up quickly! If your baby has already arrived please contact us as soon as possible to schedule an appointment because…
What is the best age to photograph a newborn baby?
It is best to photograph your newborn within the first 7 days (2 weeks is the absolute maximum to get those cute newborn shots).
Why do you prefer to do photo shoots in the first 7 days?
Babies sleep more soundly in their first 7 days, which allows us to position the baby in all those cute poses. Also, babies find out the joy of stretching around the 7 day mark and it is harder to keep them from moving around.
What should we wear?
We do both color and black and white photographs. For the color photographs we suggest that everyone wear coordinating (not matching) colors in neutral or pastel colors. BRING SEVERAL SHIRTS (that way you have a backup if your baby spits up or has an accident on you)! For black and white photography bring a black shirt. The contrast between the black shirt and baby’s skin is stunning!!
How should we dress our baby?
It is best to bring your baby in as little clothing as possible so that we can easily undress them without disturbing them too much. We provide wraps, ruffled diaper covers, headbands, etc. Please let us know if you have any other clothing items in mind so that we can purchase them beforehand.
What should we bring?
If you have any family items like blankets or small heirlooms please feel free to bring them. Other than that we have plenty of props to use!
Who can come?
Our studio is cozy so we would prefer that you limit it to only people that will be in the photographs.
What does a session cost?
$250 for 2 hours of the photographers time and 8 poses edited for color, crop and lighting.
Where will my session take place?
We mostly do newborn photography in our home studio in Tucson, AZ just north of River and 1st ave.
When will I get my photos?
Your photos will be ready in approximately 3 weeks after the session and payment clears. There is always the option for a rush order to be ready in 7 days at an additional $75.
May I take photos during our session?
Unfortunately, no. We ask that you please refrain from taking photos during the session. We need to be able to move freely around the baby to get all the right angles. Thank you for your understanding.
Do you offer prints?
We offer a digital download because this benefits you by keeping the cost of the photo shoot down. This also means that the photographs are yours to use and lets you use any printing place of your choice. Our website company does offer beautiful prints that you can choose to purchase (we will extend our Friends & Family discount to you).
