How does a newborn session work?

Your session will be completely customized and stylized before you arrive at the studio. During your session Jackie will proficiently pose your baby in props, wraps, and with your family. The studio will be plenty warm for baby as they have been warm all through your pregnancy, so please dress accordingly for your comfort. Jackie always has a white noise to help assure baby sleeps sweetly through the poses. Sessions are on babies schedule and usually last anywhere from 1-3 hours, depending on the type of session chosen as well as the baby. Sessions begin with a feeding, as babies with full bellies tend to sleep well. Please be prepared to feed on demand if breastfeeding, or bring many extra bottles if bottle feeding. If nursing please avoid consuming spicy and gassy foods both the day before and the day of your session. If baby is taking a pacifier, please bring that as well, this is used to sooth baby during poses when baby needs comforting but not hungry.

Family sessions are done towards the end of your session. We recommend that dad or another person bring the older siblings towards the last 30 minutes of the session. Parents are welcome to sit close and watch us work with your little one, or you may choose to just sit back and relax on our couches. Feel free to bring a book or even take a nap!

When you book your session you will be sent a questionnaire to fill out. This gives us direction as to color schemes, props, if any special poses you are wanting, or a special family heirloom to include. We will discuss family out fits and colors to wear. As for baby we have everything that he/she will need.

After the session, you will pick a date and schedule your ordering session, which typically takes place 1- 2 weeks after your fine art session. At the ordering session you will see your beautiful complete images for the first time. It is important that all individuals that are part of the final decision process are present at this appointment.. We will all go through your gallery and you will be able to pick your favorite images, and making final decisions on fine art products. All products must be paid in full at the ordering session unless a payment plan is chosen. No products will be ordered until the payment plan is paid in full.

All products are designed and ordered by Jackie and re-editing takes place to fit the needs of each fine art product.
