  • Q – When is the best time for those cute newborn photos?

The focus in this type of session is on shots of the baby looking perfect, usually in blankets, wraps, hats, & headbands. The session can last up to 3 hours with feeding, potty breaks, and posting.

  • Q – Circumcision?
  • A – With baby boys with being circumcised. They are a little uncomfortable and hate being touched down there, or laid on their bellies where they boy pieces rub against things. If possible, schedule the session for before the circumcision; otherwise, wait a few weeks so everything can heal up. It’s not a requirement, but the session will run smoother.
