1. When, after the baby is born should I schedule my newborn shoot?

Newborn shoots are commonly scheduled prior to the baby being born. Newborn shoots typically occur within the first 10 days of the baby being born. At this time the baby is at its smallest and typically spend most of the day sleeping.

2. What safety precautions do you take during the shoot?

We wear a medical grade mask during the shoot and have the parents help to pose the baby. It is very rare that we would ever touch the baby. However, if we did, we would do so wearing medical grade gloves.

3. Do you supply the backgrounds and props?

We do supply the background and props. However, if there is something specific that you are looking for, that we don’t supply, you may supply it or we have the option to use a digital background.

4. How safe is it to hang a newborn from the swing in your photos?

We don’t actually hang the baby from a swing, instead we use a digital background.

5. What is a digital background edit?

We use a photo that we take during the newborn shoot and we super impose the baby into a photo with a beautiful background, such as a swing.
