FAQs for in-home Welcome home newborn baby session | Montreal Newborn Photographer

I remember those first few days and weeks of bringing the new baby home. The highs, the lows, the overjoy and the overwhelm. ...And most of all trying to get out of the house!! It would take an hour!!


Welcome home, baby session is my version of the Fresh 48- a session of the latest addition to your family from the comfort of your home, 48 hours after birth. This short 30-minute session focuses on the itty bitty-ness of your baby; small little fingers, cute toes, and capturing all those funny newborn expressions.


Q. I’m running late! What happens?

Welcome home baby sessions typically happen when you arrive home however, they can also happen in the mornings. sessions take place in the late morning. I don’t book more than one newborn session a day so I’m flexible. You'll have my phone number- just send me a message :)


Q. What do I do if my baby is fussy?

First, don’t worry about it. Second, soothe the baby the way you normally would. Maybe that means walking, talking, singing, feeding. Do what you need to do, I will continue to take pictures. These are often the most natural and emotional ones. Baby will be in your arms as long as they need to. I will take pictures of those snuggles and get the details.



Q. What do I do if my baby is hungry?

Feed baby! I will still take pictures!


Q: Will you pose baby?

I will tell you how to place him or her but I do not do tight swaddle wraps or place them in baskets. I take pictures in your baby's most natural state. This is called baby-led posing. Trying to pose the baby is usually stressful for everyone especially when the baby doesn't want to be placed in a certain way. I believe your bundle belongs in your arms and close to you.


Q. Do you use props?

Not really. I don't bring any baskets, stuffed animals, etc... As mentioned above, I take pictures of your precious baby in its most precious state. If you have something sentimental and would like me to take a picture of it, I absolutely will.


Q. My house is messy!

I’m a mother of two boys. I've been there. Heck, my house is still messy. Don’t go crazy cleaning up. I’m really good at staging the area that I need to use. So don’t worry about it!


If you have never done a session with me, you should know that I am NOT all business. I am flexible, patient and will make any situation work. This is meant to be fun, not stressful.
