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.
