What to Expect During Your Newborn Session!

When to Schedule: Go ahead and schedule your newborn session while you’re still pregnant. This will ensure you a spot on my calendar! We recommend making the appointment during your second trimester. Tip: Make sure we make it on your “baby is here” contact list so we can secure a date within 14 days after your little one is here.

Baby is Here: Contact us RIGHT away when your baby is here! Newborn sessions are best done within the first 14 days after birth. Tip: To get the most out of your session it’s best to make it happen within the first 14 days. They are still nice and sleepy and love to be balled up during this time.

Welcome to the Studio: We do most newborn sessions right in our studio! (We also offer home sessions or a mixture of both!) It is fully stocked with newborn photo cuteness from little props, wraps, and more! Tip: Keep in mind we stick to a neutral/natural color palette so that your baby’s natural beauty is the main focus!

What to expect: When you come into the studio it will be nice and toasty to keep your little one warm and sleepy. They are used to being warm and bundled so we want to keep them happy. Especially because we will be taking all their warm clothes off because well… we can’t resist those adorable naked baby shots!

Preparing for Your Session

• Be sure to dress them in loose-fitting clothing. Something that zips or buttons is best to avoid undressing over their head.  This will be less disruptive to your baby’s sleep.
• Do what you can before your session to make sure your little one is super sleepy before their session. I usually suggest a nice little bath, and then a feeding right before you head out to the studio.  Newborn sessions work best when they are in a deep sleep!
•  Milk drunk little ones are much easier to photograph than when they are hungry. Don’t worry you can always feed again during your session!

During Your Session

• Just relax! We specialize in newborn photography and know how precious these little ones are.  We promise to handle your babies with the utmost care as if they were our own.
• Prepare to be patient! Your baby is going to fuss and need things during the session and that is okay. We take our time and don’t rush.

We hope this was helpful for you in preparing for your newborn session. However, if you have more questions please contact us at info@epsbaby.com. You can also check out more about our studio and style here! We can’t wait to capture your little one’s special moments!
