Newborn Session FAQ’s

When is the best time to take the newborn photos?

The best time is 4-10 days after birth. This is the time when babies are the sleepiest and most flexible.

When should I book my newborn photo session? And what is the process of booking a newborn session?

The sooner you can book your session the better! That way, I can guarantee you a spot on the calendar. At the time of booking, I require a contract that you will review and sign, and a non-refundable $50 deposit. The deposit will be applied to your final balance which is due on the day of the session.

What if my baby comes early or late?

When you book your session, I will reserve a spot according to your due date.  But given that babies usually don’t arrive exactly on their due date, I just ask that you contact me after your baby arrives and we will confirm a final date then.

What is the difference between the newborn packages?

I have 2 packages that you can pick from. Here is a breakdown of each package:

Classic Newborn Session – $600

  • 2-4 hour session in my studio. 
  • Sibling, parent, and family poses welcome.
  • A private proofing gallery of select images from your session.
  • Your choice of 20 high resolution digital images will be artistically edited. This package includes an option to choose digital composites. Extra images are available for purchase.
  • Your choices will be delivered via digital download approximately 3-4 weeks after your selections are made.

Simple Newborn Session – $375

  • 2-3 hour session in my studio. 
  • Sibling, parent, and family poses welcome.
  • A private proofing gallery of select images from your session.
  • Your choice of 10 high resolution digital images will be artistically edited. 
  • Extra images are available for purchase.
  • Your choices will be delivered via digital download approximately 3-4 weeks after your selections are made.

Where will the photo session take place?

My studio is conveniently located in the Western Slope area of Jersey City. I also provide the added convenience of free off-street parking right in front of the building.

What should I bring to the newborn session?

You do not need to bring clothes or props, I will provide those for your baby. If you have a special outfit for baby, you are welcome to bring it along.

My baby has skin issues, will that show up in the pictures?

Not to worry, all blemishes will be smoothed over when I retouch them in Photoshop.

Can other family members be in the photos?

Parents are absolutely welcome and encouraged. If you would like to include grandparents or siblings, the Classic Newborn Session is your best option.

What should the adults wear?

Its best to avoid outfits with logos or too much pattern. The outfits should be somewhat color coordinated. I can send you a link to a Pinterest board with some ideas if you need some ideas.

When do we get to see our images?

I will send you a proofing gallery the day after your session. This gallery will be comprised of the best images from the session (normally 40-60 images). From this gallery you can decide which images you want as the final images that I will process and retouch.

Can I have all my images?

I don’t provide unprocessed and unedited photos because they do not accurately represent my work. 

Can we take photos and videos during our session?

I kindly ask that you refrain from recording video or taking pictures during the session because it is a distraction from my work flow.
