“Jen is meticulous and patient and truly has an exceptional range when it comes to her creativity. I am thrilled that she shares her gift with my family. She fully understands that kids don’t love to pose so she takes what they give her and turns it into something better than what you could’ve asked!”
Premium service every step of the way
After you book your session I will be back in touch with your Welcome & What To Wear Guide so that you can start planning your session! At that time, we can also arrange to have a voice or video call to discuss your session. And don’t worry – whether over email, text or video, we will talk through all the important details so that you are prepared and ready for an enjoyable photography experience. The investment in telling your family’s story is one you will cherish for a lifetime.
These are your moments. Let’s capture them together.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Time Of Day Do Newborn Connection Sessions Typically Take Place?
Newborn sessions are usually either at 10am or 2pm as this is when the light is best in your home. Your session will take anywhere from 1.5-2.5 hours depending on how many times we have to pause for feeding, changing, soothing. We want to make sure your baby stays happy and comfortable so if a break is necessary, we will do just that.
How Do I Prepare My Home?
When I arrive I will look for the areas of your home that have the best light. I always like to use the baby’s nursery as well as the master bed, and from there we will just go where the light feels right! Don’t worry about any messes or clutter! I know bringing home a new baby means there will be new baby’s furniture, stacks of diapers, receiving blankets, unwashed laundry and dirty dishes in the sink. Please don’t worry about any of it! If something is in the way of a shot, I will simply move it! So please don’t spend much time worrying about your home. A nicely made master bed, and decluttered bedside tables will help us move through the shoot more quickly, but if you don’t get to it ahead of time, please don’t worry about it one bit!
Anything I can do to prepare my baby?
It’s ideal if your baby could be fed and ready for sleep when I arrive, but I fully understand that this may not be possible. Just do the best you can and we will work with whatever energy your baby gives us. Your baby may not sleep for the photos and that’s ok! (especially if your baby is older than 12 days old) We will do what we can to encourage your baby to sleep (warmth, swaddling, etc) but if it does work out, don’t worry! Wide-eyes newborn photos are beautiful as well!
We will photograph your baby swaddled, in a white onesie, and in just a diaper if your baby is warm enough. If you have any other special blankets or outfits you would like incorporated into the shoot, please let me know.
What should we wear?
You and your husband will be in many of the shots, as I feel capturing the bond your share with your new baby is such an important piece of the story we will tell through your images. Clothing is an essential component of the session. The right clothing truly has the ability to add beautiful depth and to enhance the feeling of the moments captured within your images. For newborn shoots I recommend neutral or soft colors, and please try and avoid logos, stripes and strong graphics. Dads look great in a simply neutral Henley shirt, and shirts and dresses that flow and feel comfortable on your post-baby body are beautiful for mom. But don’t worry too much about clothing now. I will send you my complete styling guide to help!
How does the ordering process work?
My streamlined, online ordering system will make selecting your images and products straightforward and fun! Within two weeks of your session date, I will send you a proofing gallery of 75+ images. From this proofing gallery, you will select the images for your collection. I am also always available for in-home or video ordering sessions
Worried you won’t print your images (need to rephrase this to match the others)?
I’ve got you covered. It is so important to me that you walk away from our time together with something beautiful to hang on the walls of your home, or a stunning keepsake to place on your coffee table. Accordingly, all Connection Sessions include beautiful prints, and two premium quality framed and matted 5×7 prints (8×10 frame), with beautiful upgrade options also available to add albums or additional prints and wall art.
