WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO SCHEDULE A NEWBORN SESSION? Typically the best time to schedule is while you are still pregnant so that we can set the date when the baby would be under 2 weeks of age. At this stage, the baby will sleep soundly and can be comfortably curled in to the womb position, making it easier for the wrapping poses. However, I photograph newborns at any age, so if this time does not work for you, I am happy to schedule any time.
HOW LONG DOES THE SESSION LAST? Motherly Newborn sessions typically last between 1.5 - 2 hours, depending on how often your baby needs to feed. Since most of the session is geared towards creating Motherly Portraits with your baby in your arms, we can generally transition very smoothly.
DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH THE BABY ALONE OR ONLY WITH THE MOTHER? A typcial Newborn Session includes a variety of the baby alone, with mother, father and siblings. We will discuss what works best for you at your Pre-Planning Session.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? My studio and style reflects a soft color palette to keep the focus on you and your baby. I have a Motherhood Wardrobe line of beautiful lace, chiffon and cotton blouses and dresses for you to choose from, or you may elect to bring your own wardrobe.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY SESSION AHEAD OF TIME? All clients are offered an "in-person" PLANNING SESSION at no charge prior to setting the appointment. At this time we will go over all the details you will need to know before, during and after the session. It is my goal to create the best experience for you and bring comfort and peace to the process. I am here to help you along the way through preparing, planning, organizing and selection of products that will be best for you and your family. You don't need to worry about a thing!
CAN WE TAKE PHOTOS OR VIDEO DURING THE SESSION? Unfortunately any type of camera or videotaping is not allowed during your session. This is a time for you to enjoy and relax in a beautiful environment and soak in the moments we will be capturing.
DO YOU SELL DIGITAL FILES? All my Collections include digital files along with tangible products.
CAN I SUBMIT MY DIGITAL FILES TO BABY CONTESTS? No I'm sorry you cannot. All images are copyright to Robin Long Photography and are for your personal use only.
CAN I BRING A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER TO THE SESSION? I ask that you limit the people you bring to your session to one other person. If the person will be partaking in the session, please let me know.
DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT OR SESSION FEE? There is a NON-REFUNDABLE $300 Session Fee to schedule NEWBORN sessions. This fee does not include any products.
