Before the session, we will chat about your goals for the session as well as define props and colours that you like. This step can be done in person or through an online questionnaire, whichever works best for you. Once your little one arrives, please contact me within 48 hours after birth to let me know the big news. We will find a day and time that works for both of us to schedule your newborn session. I will send you a “Preparation Guide” with more information about the session, how to prepare, what to bring, what to wear, etc. Your booking is completed only after online agreement and deposit, at least 48 hours prior to the session.
During the session relax and have fun! Your baby will sense your mood. Feel free to bring along books, iPad, laptop or any drinks or snacks. Parents and siblings shots are done at the beginning of the session. It can be difficult for children to hang out in the warm studio for a long period, so we ask to keep older siblings at home or out for something fun while we take the individual newborn shots. I have plenty of experience working with newborns and you should always expect the unexpected. Pee, poop will happen and don’t panic or be embarrassed, it’s a normal part of the newborn photography sessions and it happens all the time. I wash all used blankets, wraps and outfits after every session and the studio is always kept very clean. Baby will also have fussy moments, and that is just fine. You won’t be rushed through your session, and we will have plenty of time to cuddle, change, feed and relax your little one. A newborn session can take up to four hours and we will respect all needs of your baby.
After the session, you can expect an e-mail from Amanda Dams Photography within 7 days with your password-protected online proofing gallery. The online proofing gallery has unedited images of your session to choose from. Your gallery will expire in 7 days and all orders and selections need to be made prior to the expiration of proofing gallery. Editing process will take 2-3 weeks after your selection. An USB drive with selected edited high-resolution images and all products from your package will be shipped to your home.
