YM Photography Newborn Session Questionnaire

Please provide the following information. It helps us to pick the perfect sets, props and colors for your newborn session. While we do try to get to everything we have planned, newborn sessions are determined by the mood of your little one. This means that we cannot guarantee that we will get to every prop or backdrop we have discussed in pre-session planning.

Please have this completed at least one month prior to your due date.

Due Date
Actual date of your session will be scheduled once you return home from the hospital. Posed sessions are best between 5-7 days old. We keep two days a week open (in addition to scheduled sessions) for surprise, early or late deliveries. Should circumstances mean that you are unable to scheduled within the first 10 days, only an at-home lifestyle session will be provided. Please note that this may incur additional charges.

Many parents wish to hang photos of newborn in their nursery or over their crib. We have found that planning session colors that coordinate make it easier on new parents when printing photos.

I’m a bit of a prop junky. From newborn sized dream catchers to boats, we have a little bit of everything. I always tell my clients that unless they wish to keep something as an heirloom to check to see that we don’t already have it in the studio for use.

Examples: Family quilts, furniture item, parents’ newborn clothing or special sweaters from grandparents.

The studio is kept very warm to accommodate unclothed newborns. This may be very uncomfortable for older family members. In addition, newborn sessions are always best in a calm, peaceful environment. For these reasons, we suggest planning a time at least two hours into your session when baby will be more comfortable swaddled for grandparent photos. We never charge an extra person fee for grandparents.

I am a pinterest addict! You can find inspiration or comment/like on pins I’ve already posted to help me plan your session. Please note that we will not copy another photographer’s work but we will use it as inspiration to find a pose/set that is perfect for you. Please post your pinterest username or board url below.

A huge part of growing and building my business is by sharing the photos that I create, both on my website & Social Media. After all, that is probably how you heard about me or decided to book me! 🙂 Every photo I post has my watermark on it, and is protected. I only use a first name with no other information. With your permission, I would love to use a few of my favorite photos from your session on my Website and Social Media. Are we allowed to post photos from your session? *

As a general policy, we do not photograph newborn private bits and pieces and immediately delete any photos we find that expose these during our review stage of editing.

Safety for our littlest clients is one of our main concerns and taken very seriously. Please acknowledge below that you understand that any comments posted on your sneak peeks which reveal personal information and/or locations of baby will be deleted from our business page. These comments are typically made by excited family members and we have found that clearly explaining this policy ahead of time, reduces any hurt feelings that may arise from deleted comments. *
