An addition to the family can be at times a bit stressful, so here at Paige Koster Photography, we want to make that transition easy for you as your Red Deer Newborn Photographer. When you come to visit us in the studio, I want you guys to feel relaxed knowing I've got it from there and your baby is in safe hands with me.
When do I book?
The best time to book your session is as soon as you are ready to! Paige Koster Photography only takes on 4-6 newborns a month to ensure that I can schedule each little one within the 6-10 days. Occasionally I do photograph younger and older newborns. Once your little one has arrived, we then schedule a set date that works for you and your family.
To help make the session run smoothly and efficiently, I have a few tips for you! I won't bore you with all the details just yet. (That will come later on in your "What to expect email.")
Tip 1: Try and keep your newborn awake before your session. A sleepy newborn is a much easier newborn to pose, which means a faster session for Mom & Dad. There is always one little guy or gal who will surprise us all and stay up for a whole session - and that's okay too! Show us those big blue eyes little one!
Tip 2: Don't forget extra clothes for everyone! Babies are known to pee & poop on your beautiful outfit, so make sure you have a back up! (This goes for me as well!)
Tip 3: It gets a little warm in the studio, so its best to properly dress for this. Your newborn may be naked or have a thin layer of clothing, this helps keep him or her warm and comfortable during their session.
Tip 4: Sit back, and relax. I know, it is crazy...how does a new mom relax? Typically I will do the family portion of your session first, and then from there I will do the newborn portraits. There may be a few poses where I ask that Mom or Dad is available to me to help spot as a safety precaution, but otherwise, I ask that you sit down, relax and enjoy some quiet time. You can be ensured that Paige is certified in newborn safety and they are in great hands!
We can't wait to snuggle your new little bundle of joy!
