Newborn Session Questionnaire

What colours would you like to see for this session?

I have large selection or props, cute baby outfits, baskets etc available for you to choose. Do you have any special props (favorite blankets, toys, shoes, meaningful items) that you would like to include in your session?

Any other special things you would like to tell me or include etc

Because Newborn Sessions need to be very quiet, calm, and peaceful, I usually recommend that only the parents attend. If you would like a sibling photo, I suggest that they only come for a short period of time. I like to do a few photos including Mom and/or Dad at the beginning, and siblings (if applicable). Please let me know who will be attending and their names and relations.

A huge part of growing and building my business is by sharing the photos that I create, both on my website & Social Media. After all, that is probably how you heard about me or decided to book me! With your permission, I would love to use a few of my favorite photos from your session on my Website and Social Media. *
