Important Info

When Should We Schedule the Newbord Shoot?

The best age to take a newborn baby’s first images is up to two weeks. For a newborn shoot, timing is important so Kathryn finds out from parents about the baby’s schedule. They may or may not have one, but one way or another, 9 times out of 10 Baby’s parents will be able to tell her which time of day their baby tends to be at their best, most calm state. Kathryn make sure that the heat is on which makes the baby feel secure and happy. During the shoot, we take plenty of breaks to calm baby down, feed, burp, change the diaper.  

 THE BABY PLAN, Each Baby Plan includes three sessions: 

The Beginning – Newborn to 3 months:

This is a great time to focus on all the little details- the hands, fingers, toes & the special bond between a newborn & parent. Your baby can be bare, in their diaper with a diaper cover or in a blanket. Parents love it when Kathryn places a newborn in to a basket, bowl or cocoon because it shows how small the baby is. Props have such a huge impact on the final images.

 The Moment – 6-9 months:

This is a time to highlight the dawn of your baby’s independence. Your child should be sitting independently for this session. Appropriate clothing includes bloomers, overalls, tulle skirts or a simple colored outfit.

The Freedom – 1 year:

What a great way to capture the essence of your baby’s personality! Choose either a formal or casual session.  




Our Urban Locations family session is just the thing for you. The session offers a fun indoor and outdoor setting with cool alleyways, historic front stoops, and brick buildings in some of the area’s hottest urban spots! An urban portrait is a great way to highlight your family’s eclectic personality and chic appeal. Enjoy the urban environment as you free your mind of tradition and engage in the family fun!
