NEWBORN FAQ'S

SESSION LOCATION
All newborn sessions are held in Kayla's natural light studio in New Prague, MN. Kayla is also available for travel sessions in your city or home. Please email Kayla at kaylapalerphotography@yahoo.com for travel rates.

YOUR SESSION PREPARATION
Kayla shoots all of her newborn sessions around 9/9:30 am. The light in the studio is soft and pretty during this time and newborns seem to be sleepiest in the morning. If you can keep your newborn up minimum of 2 hours and preferably 3-4 hours before coming that helps for a sleepier session. This is not always easy to do but will greatly benefit both of us. The sleepier your newborn is, the more set-ups Kayla can get while they peacefully sleep! Before you leave for the session, make sure and feed your little one, so they are nice and full. The car ride to the studio will help to get them into a deep sleep so we can start right away with posing and styling. When you arrive at the studio leave your newborn in their car seat, and we will begin getting them ready at that point. If you can bring a bottle and a pacifier that helps greatly to keep the session moving peacefully.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE SCHEDULE A NEWBORN SESSION?
With newborns, it's never too early to book a session. Due to the unpredictable nature of newborns, your newborn session is reserved based on your estimated due date. Once your baby arrives, we ask that you email us with a picture, full name(s) and birth stats and we'll find a date for you to come down to the studio. Your reserved newborn session is to take place within 10 days of baby’s actual date of birth. If you are induced or given a c-section date, the actual session date can be booked in advance. We can't stress enough how important it is to email us right away after delivery. The first weeks work best to get the curly poses and longer amounts of deep sleep to pose and style. After two weeks of age, newborns are more likely to be disturbed while sleeping, and can also become colicky, or start to develop baby acne.

WHAT SHOULD WE DO TO PREPARE FOR MY NEWBORN SESSION AND WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR/BRING?
Prior to your session, you'll be sent a list of things we'll need you to do as well as, what to bring to the studio, and what to expect when you arrive. I believe open communication is the key to a successful portrait session.

HOW LONG IS THE AVERAGE NEWBORN SESSION?
Kayla will always adapt her sessions according to each newborn, but It’s not uncommon for a newborn session to last between 2-3.5 hours depending on the session you've chosen. We hate to rush newborns, and we want to allow plenty of time for feeding, artistic posing and comforting. With that in mind, we ask that you do not schedule anything directly after your newborn session.

HOW LONG AFTER THE SESSION WILL THE IMAGES BE READY?
Within 4 weeks of your session, we will e-mail you with a link and password to view your online image gallery. Most galleries contain between 20-75 images depending on the session. Your gallery will be available for 5 DAYS. You may share your gallery password with anyone you would like. Friends and family are more than welcome to view the gallery if you choose.

WHEN SHOULD WE EXPECT OUR PORTRAIT ORDER?
Orders are sent to print only after payment has been made in full (or check payment has cleared). Please allow 3 weeks for final delivery of all orders. Depending on the product ordered, it could take up to 6 weeks.

Due to the custom nature of each session and product, all sales are final.

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU TAKE?
For your convenience, Kayla accepts both credit card (via PayPal online), and personal checks addressed to Kayla Paler.
