Stokes Photography Studio Details
My home-based photo studio is in Boise. It is a comfortable setting with amazing seating. There will be yummy snacks and water available. We have wi-fi and a seriously comfy couch that you can nap in (several parents have snoozed during the session, we know those first few days can be tiring). We also have a changing station with a soft pad and warm wipes from the wipes warmer.
Props! So many props! I have a variety of backdrops available and wraps in many different colors and textures. I also have a large selection of gorgeous little headbands, little stuffed animals with matching hats, bonnets, newsboys outfits, and much, much more. As a newborn photographer, I adore shopping for cute little props to add to portraits sessions. Additionally, we carefully wash and sanitize every prop that is used. We use a gentle, baby-skin friendly detergent, like Dreft to wash blankets, wraps, outfits, etc.
The studio will be WARM! The heater will be cranked up and I will also use a space heater if needed. Please dress in layers so you won't get too uncomfortable. The warm environment helps to keep baby warm and sleepy.
Booking your newborn portrait session
It's best to contact us in your second or third trimester so we can pencil in your due date. Due dates are just a best guess of when baby arrives, so we want to make sure that we are available in that general time frame. Once you go to the hospital and have baby and have a minute to breathe, it's ideal if you can text or call me to let me know baby has arrived so we can schedule your session in the upcoming days.
Pricing and Products
The Newborn Photography Session - What to Expect
- pacifier (if you use one)
- any outfits you wish to incorporate (this is not necessary, we have tons of wraps, hats, etc., but if you have a cute outfit you want to include, please bring it along!)
- family memorabilia you want to use in the portraits (this is also not necessary, but maybe you have a stuffed teddy bear that was handed down, or a quilt that was lovingly stitched by a family member that you want to include)
Sessions typically last 1-2 hours. We are more than happy to do sibling and family portraits as well. If it is easier for you, we can do them at the beginning of the photo shoot or at the end so they can leave if needed. For example, we could do the entire family and sibling shots, then dad and the kiddos can take off or take a walk if they want.
Most of the portrait session will be me posing the baby. Parents can read, browse the internet, take a nap, and just relax. Occasionally, I will need the assistance of a parent in some of the poses.
I can't wait to photograph your beautiful bundle of joy!! Contact me today with any questions or to book your session! I would be so honored to be your newborn photographer!
