Nothing can prepare you for how quickly your newborn will grow and change!! Those first days and weeks pass by in an endless haze of  sleep deprivation, feeding, changing,  laundry, nap, repeat. Trust me when I tell you, you'll want these images to remember just how incredibly love drunk you were on this tiny, perfect little human!  I know that the thought of leaving the house in those first weeks for your baby's newborn portrait session can feel daunting... 

Which is why every newborn session begins with fresh brewed coffee or mimosas, snacks and professional hair & makeup at my studio for mom while I photograph your sweet, sleepy baby! Once you're finished with hair and makeup, you  can choose a dress from my client closet or you can wear something of your own & we'll get started photographing your new baby with their parents, siblings and family! Newborn Sessions typically last about 3hrs from start to finish.

How far in advance should we book our session?

At Asheville Portrait Company, we value family & try really hard to prioritize having a Healthy Work / Life Balance. We believe that it directly affects our attitude, energy, creativity and ultimately our success.

Frequently asked questions

How does this work?

All that's required to reserve your Newborn Session on my shoot calendar is a $400 Creative Fee & a Signed Portrait Session Contract. After that, I'll put your due date on my shoot calendar as a tentative place holder & we'll go ahead and schedule your Pre-Session Phone Consultation to chat about your session, to plan for it in terms of theme, color pallet, props needed, etc. You'll just let me know once baby arrives & we'll get you into the studio following week!

Frequently asked questions

How long do Newborn Sessions last?
.
I typically schedule newborn sessions between 
9am - 2pm. You'll have (up to) 3hrs with me in my studio! Newborn Portrait Sessions at my studio are entirely baby led! Much of our time is spent feeding, changing and soothing baby to sleep so that we can get those sweet, sleepy shots that everyone loves! If baby is full, content and sleepy, you could be in and out in two hours! 
(Please let me know ahead of time if baby is having tummy trouble or cluster feeding, we'll simply re-schedule for a few days later to make it easier on everyone!)

Frequently asked questions

What should we wear?

You’ll want to dress in a way that makes you feel comfortable and confident!
I have a client closet full of beautiful & flattering flowy, Baltic Born dresses for moms! 
I am happy to help you to put together your wardrobe for the session OR you can borrow something from my client closet at the studio if you'd like! 
I typically recommend that parents wear white, muted pastels, gray or black depending on the vibe of the portrait session (we'll discuss this in detail during your pre-session phone consultation) AND you'll get more inspiration from my Client Prep Guide! 

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to bring props?

Nope! I have a giant catalog of Newborn props for use! I have shelves full of bowls, baskets, boxes, buckets and baby beds! I have wraps in every color imaginable, a whole rack of knit hats, sleepy caps, headbands, crowns and bows!
AND each of my Newborn Sessions is completely custom! During your pre-session phone consultation, we'll chat about theme and color pallet and I will order anything that's needed to make your newborn photo dreams come true!
