When should I schedule my newborn session?

Whenever you find out you are pregnant, go ahead and contact us! Once you pay your sitting fee, we will put your due date on our calendar. We know how unpredictable babies can be. But the due date gives us a good idea of when your baby might arrive so that we don’t overbooked.

 

How will we schedule the actual date of the newborn session?

As your due date approaches, we will be in touch quite a bit. If things progress early that’s not a problem. If baby is being stubborn and decides to go past the due date, that’s not a problem either. Once you deliver your sweet baby, you will let us know you are ready to schedule a session and we’ll go from there.

When is the best time to do a newborn session?

Usually within the first 4-9 days of life. Your baby will change so much during those first few weeks…even days of life. So the sooner we can photograph your newborn the better.

 

Where is the session done?

We have a beautiful studio behind our house where we do all of our newborn sessions. We will send you the address when you book a session with us.

 

What should I bring to the session for the pictures?

We have a variety of props, wraps, bows and bonnets that we use during the session. So really the only things you need to bring with you are those things that you’ll need to take care of your baby such as diapers, wipes, pacifer, and bottle if necessary.

How long will the session last?

The session will last anywhere from 2-2.5 hours. Babies are beautiful models, but they are completely dependent on us to pose them. Our priority in every pose is to make sure that your baby is safe and comfortable. Sometimes it can take awhile to get your baby settled into that beautiful pose we want to photograph. They also like to eat (sometimes a lot), poop, and cry in the middle of their session. We try and let the baby guide the flow of the session while also being mindful of the time.

 

What should I expect during the session?

We want you to be able to relax and enjoy your baby being photographed. So hopefully you can sit back and watch us work our magic. The studio will be warm (about 80 degrees) so that your sweet baby will be comfortable. So you’ll want to make sure you are dressed comfortably. We will have bottled waters and small snacks available, but you might want to bring yourself something more to snack on.

What happens if my baby needs to eat during the session?

No problem! We will take as many breaks as necessary to eat and change diapers. Many times if you’ve had to drive a ways in the car the baby will wake up when you get them out of the car seat and be ready to eat first thing. No worries! I love to start a session out with baby eating because then they will have a nice full belly and usually be more content.

 

What if my baby is fussy and cries a lot during the session?

No worries! We will do everything we can to soothe your baby. Sometimes if we just swaddle them up really well they will calm down pretty quickly. Often times it may mean you’ll want to feed more often. You may want to just sit and rock your baby for a few minutes. Whatever we need to do is fine. That’s why we give plenty of time for these sessions.

 

What if my baby just will NOT calm down?

If your baby just will not settle because of either a growth spurt or just a bad day (which happens!) and we’ve tried everything we can to soothe the baby, then we can always reschedule for a couple of days later. Every day is different for a newborn so it may be that the day we schedule is just not their favorite day. It’s ok! We can give it another try a couple of days later.

How many images should I expect from a session?

My goal is to get anywhere from 15-20 amazing images. Each time we pose the baby it may take awhile to settle them down and position them correctly. I will definitely shoot way more than that to be certain we capture that perfect expression and that your baby looks just right. But my job is to cull through all of the images and find the very best ones to show you. I want to make sure you LOVE every single image that you see.

 

What do I get when I purchase a newborn session?

After we shoot your newborn session, we will schedule an ordering session where you will be able to purchase the images that you love. You can email me at emily@drewcason.com to get more information.

What’s more beautiful than a couple in love on gorgeous spring day!?! Megan and Jason were a blast to photograph. They are obviously in love and it shows in every picture. The weather was absolutely perfect and the trees blooming were a pleasant surprise for a backdrop to this stunning couple. I’m so excited to be shooting their wedding tomorrow at First Baptist Church in Benton with their reception downtown.

Most of you have seen our gorgeous glamour maternity sessions that we’ve posted lately. But did you know that you don’t have to be pregnant to have a glamour session with us? In fact, before we got into doing glamour maternity sessions, we did just glamour sessions. Check out our beautiful model, Karis! She is gorgeous on the inside and out!

This momma to be is absolutely stunning! We had so much fun photographing this beauty. We all agreed that the teal colored dress was simply made for her! That color was just gorgeous on her. She brought the floral dress and we weren’t too sure about it at first. It’s not our normal style to use such vibrant prints. But we decided to try it and I am SO glad we did. I absolutely love how the floral dress photographed on her. But is there really anything this momma wouldn’t look good in???

Jennipher and her husband will be welcoming their first baby into the world in just a few short weeks. We are so excited to also be shooting their Fresh 48 session and baby boy’s newborn session. So be on the lookout for those pictures!

We love that we have the option to do glamour maternity sessions in our studio. Arkansas is so unpredictable and it makes scheduling outdoor sessions much harder. But no matter how hot, cold, rainy or humid it is outside we can still have beautiful images.

We all love taking pictures outside with a gorgeous setting. But Arkansas only has about 8 weeks of the year where it’s not too hot, too cold, rainy, humid, or just gross. So we have another option that is just as gorgeous. We offer studio glamour sessions in any weather condition. On the day that we took these beautiful pictures it was dark and stormy outside. But we were all inside a cozy studio completely unaffected.

Jacquelyn is on of my best friends and will be welcoming her sweet little girl into the world in a few short weeks. She is gorgeous all of the time. But she is absolutely stunning as a pregnant momma. We had so much fun playing dress up with our dresses we provided for her. Her sweet little girl was such a good model too. 😉
