Newborn sessions are a lot of work! From prepping baby before he or she leaves home to the studio we create the perfect warm quiet environment and take extra care in babies comfort. Even with all of that some babies can still not sleep the entire session. Every baby is different, some are more alert then others, they may be going through a growth spurt, reacting to changes in their diet, or just being a newborn.


A  Chubby Cheeks full newborn sessions ensures we have enough time and plan the perfect workflow to allow for all the poses and set ups. Some babies will sleep and melt into every newborn pose under 2 hours, whereas others need a little extra soothing and even may need extra feedings in between set ups. Chubby Cheeks Full newborn session can include wrapped posing. Sometimes we will do wrapped some wrapped poses to allow baby to relax and be soothed before unwrapping to transition into naked posing or in an outfit.  Parent poses and siblings, naked baby posing and prop posing. These sessions are between 2-4 hours.

Parents often rave at how great their baby sleeps all day. A newborn session is a little different because baby isn’t in his or her normal environment and changing outfits, bonnets, wraps and poses can keep them from being in that perfect deep sleep they experience at home.


With a Button Nose wrapped session it is considered a mini and lasts between 45 minutes and an hour. We can do this because baby is wrapped snug giving the feeling of comfort they had in the womb. Depending on baby if it is a parent preference we can do a full wrap and even a semi or half wrap that allows us to see those tiny toes!  Button Nose wrapped session include only Parent poses no siblings.


Tiny Toes wrapped session are for baby only wrapped  (no naked posing or outfits) with 2-3 set ups.
