Newborn Sessions

Newborn Sessions:

When should I schedule my newborns session?: The best time to schedule your newborn session is during your pregnancy or within a week of birth.  I will add your expected due date to my calendar, allowing me to book within your baby's first 16 days of life. When your baby arrives give me a call or text and I will finalize your session date. If you get behind and do not schedule your newborn session before your baby is born I will try my best to squeeze you in before the 16 day mark.

What age is considered newborn?:  Newborn sessions should occur within the first 16 days of life.  Why this early? After 2-3 weeks our little newborns lose their womb-like behavior. We want them curly, comfy and ready for some sleep. 

Does Kyla Jo Photography provide the props?: Kyla Jo Photography provides all the props unless you wanted something specific for your session. 

I want to bring a special item and have my baby photographed with it, is that okay?: Yes, absolutely. I encourage my clients to bring vintage items, family heirlooms, bonnets, headbands, bows, special blankets, and anything you want to include in the session.

How long does a newborn session take?: Most newborn sessions take anywhere from 1.5 hours to 3 hours. Each child is different and some sleep very well and some don’t. Please be prepared to spend up to 3 hours in the studio or in the nursery.

What if my baby does not sleep?: If your baby does not sleep after 45 minutes, I will reschedule a new date ASAP. This sometimes happens, when nothing we do can settle them down or put them sleep. We cannot continue to do a session while the baby is not asleep, I want to make sure that you get the best quality images I can provide of your newborn.

Fresh-48 Sessions:

How does the Fresh-48 session work?: You will let me know when you due date is. I will put that date in my calendar, if you go into labor earlier than expected, have someone message me and keep me updated, you will want me to come in most likely the following day after you give birth.

Will you travel?: Yes I am based out of Muncie, but will travel with a small traveling fee. Anderson and New Castle does not require a travel fee.

Are these posed or lifestyle?: My newborn photos in the studio are all posed with props, lighting, and wraps. My Fresh-48 sessions are lifestyle, you interacting with your newborn, them laying in their bed, and detail shots. If you want to provide a wrap, signs, bows, or any props you are welcome to. Usually a cute wrap, one outfit, and some nude photos are perfect in the hospital. Letter boards are usually a really cute idea with their name, weight, length, and date of birth.

How long should I book my session for?: If you purchase the bundle, the session that is included is up to one hour in length. If you are just purchasing a Fresh-48 session alone, I suggest a half an hour for just baby shots and few with the parents, if you have other children you want to include I suggest an hour session for more shots and variety.
