Frequently Asked Questions
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What types of newborn sessions do you offer?
Three Wishes Photography offers two types of newborn sessions, a newborn mini session and a regular newborn session. The newborn mini session is a one hour session of just baby. Typically we do two beanbag poses and two prop poses. The session lasts about 1 hour. We also offer a regular newborn session. This session is about 2-3 hours long and typically includes beanbag set ups, props and family/sibling photos.
When should I schedule my newborn session?
It’s best to schedule your newborn session before your baby arrives. I do have some time available for last minute appointments as well but if you want a spot guaranteed it’s best to set it up about 6 weeks in advance or earlier.
How old should my newborn be for photos?
Newborn photos are best done before the first 16 days of life. Your baby will be very sleepy and mold-able during this age. After this time period they tend to be more alert and not as willing to be posed. If your baby is 2-3 weeks old it is sometimes still possible to capture newborn photos, however it can be more difficult.
Where does the newborn session take place?
All newborn sessions take place at my Otsego home studio. The studio is warm and cozy and I have all the props necessary for a successful session.
What do I need to bring to my newborn session?
A pacifier (to soothe baby in-between poses), a bottle with formula or breast milk, and lots of wipes for accidents! Baby will be naked for the majority of the session so accidents happen. All of our fabric props are washable but we will need some wipes to clean baby up.
When should we bring the sibling for family photos?
We always do family and sibling photos at the very beginning of our regular newborn session. After the sibling and family portion of the session, I would suggest to take the little ones somewhere for awhile. Otherwise the wait can be long and boring for a young sibling. We need the studio very quite and calm for these sessions.
Do I need to bring clothes for the baby?
No clothes are needed for the newborn posing part of the session. I do have lots of little outfits and wraps that coordinate beautifully with my fabric. . If you have a prop or clothing set you’d like used during the session please let me know before the session so we can coordinate.
What should we wear for family and sibling photos?
Creams, neutrals and grays look best and you want to limit the patters your wear to a minimum. The studio will be very warm (Around 80 degrees) so you will want to wear something light and comfortable.
