First, let me say congratulations! Having a baby is probably the most amazing thing that will ever happen to you. A bit scary and overwhelming, sure... but still, raising a child is the most rewarding thing you'll ever do in your life.
And it's true what they say: they do grow too fast. Two weeks after a baby is born, they're technically no longer a newborn. By age 3 months, they're smiling at you, studying your mouth as you talk, and some even roll over! By 6-7 months you likely have a sitter, (which is an amazing time for a photoshoot, as *most* babies haven't started with too much separation anxiety yet), and generally by 1 year, you'll have a baby who's thinking pretty seriously about walking!
Mom, you're sleep deprived, and I speak from experience when I say: you won't remember as much about their first year as you wish you could.
Newborns - $500
When booking a newborn session, it's important to book well in advance, and since most moms book right after they hit the second trimester, it's important to plan ahead to ensure your spot. After you book with a deposit, I'll wait for the call or message that says you've had your baby, and then we'll try to schedule your session for when baby is about 8-12 days old.
I keep a huge supply of newborn props on hand, so don't worry at all about having to bring things, other than regular diaper bag supplies! I have everything we need for the session, along with a comfortable place to nurse when baby needs you.
