Overwhelmed with planning your newborn session?
Don’t be! I am here to help. Planning for those newborn photos Denver can seem like a daunting task. It doesn’t have to be! My goal is to take all of the stress away and allow you to be excited about coming to our Colorado photography studio for your little ones first newborn photos!
Book your session early!
Reach out to me HERE as soon as you know you want to capture those precious first moments! We book out quite far in advance for Newborn photos Denver. I want you to get all of the icky stuff (contracts, invoices, questionnaires etc.) out of the way BEFORE baby is born. That way you can check that off of your list and you don’t have to worry about it!
Once your Newborn portrait session is booked, you do not have to do a thing until your tiny human is earthside. Have your partner, mother, father, BFF or cousin Sally reach out to me as soon as you and baby are home from the hospital to get your session on my calendar. PLEASE DO NOT WAIT! Newborn photos Denver are best done 5-14 days after birth. This is THE EASIEST step in the process to forget to do. I mean I don’t blame you, that sweet baby is finally here- nothing else matters right?!?! That is why we suggest delegating someone BEFORE you give birth to take on this task.
Read the Session Guide!
You will thank me later. We put a lot of time into creating beautiful session guides, customized for each session we offer at Erin Jachimiak Photography. They are meant to answer most of your questions, walk you through our process start to finish, and help you be prepared so that we can make the most of our time together! Of course, if you still have questions, we are here for you so please do not hesitate to reach out!
This is THE SINGLE most important piece of preparing for your newborn photos Denver. The questionnaire is what I use to bring YOUR vision to life! So please take your time when you complete it, think about where you are going to display your images in your home when thinking about colors you would like me to incorporate into the session. Also what types of images are you drawn to – wrapped, tushie, details…….it’s all up to you! No 2 sessions are the same – each one is customized based on the answers in the questionnaire.
Pack up the night before!
Often times, Your Newborn Photoshoot is the first outing with your baby. I know – as if the actual newborn photos Denver was not enough….you have to pack up what feels like your entire house to come to our studio. Prepare as much as you possibly can the night before. Steam your outfits and either hang them in the car or hang them by the door (or you are welcome to select something from our client closet when you arrive! ), pack up any special items that you are bringing to the session, get that diaper bag packed too. The last thing you want to do is forget something and have to turn around and go back home the morning of. We have diapers, wipes, new packaged pacifiers in the studio just in case…….
Sit back and relax!
Once you arrive at our studio, the goal is for you to sit back, forget about how baby was up all night and you can’t remember the last time you showered. I want you to take the time to REALLY look at this beautiful tiny human you made. How tiny she or he is, how long their fingers are, the little squeaks they make. I want you to notice all the small things. Time is a thief my friend, and before you know it those fuzzy shoulders and baby rolls will be nothing but a distant memory. Trust me when I say you will be thankful you did this. Grateful that you have these beautiful images to remember.
