Newborn Session Info - Melissa Stephens Photography

When should I schedule my newborn appointment? 

In order to capture the true essence of a newborn, we try to schedule your session as soon as possible! Newborns in the first week are ideal,  but within the first 2-4 weeks of life is preferred.

If you can, call to reserve your appointment in your 2nd trimester & we will set up a tentative date based on your due date.  However if your new baby has arrived please give us a call and we will do our all to schedule you an appointment time for your new little love!!!


Should I bring anything to the newborn session?

Most newborn images are done without clothing & we have plenty of wraps, fabrics, hats & diaper covers to use at the studio.  We will be in contact with you prior to your session to go over all the final details and suggestions.  If there is anything specific you would like to bring you are welcome to it, but otherwise we have all we need. 


How much time should I allow for my newborn session?

The average newborn session lasts about  2 hours... depending on the needs of your little one. Plenty of time is allowed for feeding/nursing and snuggling, no rushing. So please no worries. Just sit back, relax & enjoy watching your new baby being photographed. We are very humbled you have chosen us to create these memories for a lifetime!
