Questions and Answers!
Is my newborn too old to be photographed?
What can I expect from my FULL newborn session?
Please be sure to feed baby fully right before our session. I am typically in the studio about 15 minutes before our session, so please feel free to come in so that you can feed baby while I set up, so that we can begin right away with a sleepy, happy baby. It is important that baby be fully fed – we want baby to be ‘Thanksgiving Day Full’ to ensure a happy and comfortable sleep and session.
The use of a pacifier during our session may help our session run more smoothly, in the event that baby might need additional soothing during our session. A pacifier will help a baby that might not be hungry but needs to be soothed back to a comfortable sleep. I highly recommend bringing one along to our session, just in case.
Although we will focus on baby during our session, I love capturing baby with his/her family. If you wish to be included in a couple of images with your new little one, I recommend wearing a neutral or natural, solid colored top. We will work these images into the beginning of our session.
If bringing older siblings to our session to be photographed with baby, I highly recommend that a family member or friend tag along in a separate car to bring older siblings home or out to the park, breakfast, etc once our portion of the session is over. I like to photograph family and siblings during the first half hour of our session, then move onto focusing on baby.
Here is a great blog post on how to prepare for your newborn session!
What if my newborn poops on everything?
How do I book a newborn session date if my baby doesn't arrive on his/her due date?
Should I bring anything to my newborn session?
What can I expect from my MINI newborn session?
The following preparation recommendations are extremely important in ensuring that we achieve a good variety of poses during our short time together. Ideally, we aim to have baby remain asleep during the entirety of the session, as intricate posing can be achieved with a sleeping baby.
Please arrive at the studio FIFTEEN minutes prior to your scheduled session time. This is important as the extra time will allow you to undress baby, get him/her comfortable with the studio and to also ‘top off’ baby with food to ensure a full and happy tummy.
Please be sure to feed baby FULLY right before leaving from your home to come to the studio. It is important that baby be fully fed – we want baby to be ‘Thanksgiving Day Full’ to ensure a happy and comfortable sleep and session.
The use of a pacifier during our session may help our session run more smoothly, in the event that baby might need additional soothing during our session. A pacifier will help a baby that might not be hungry but needs to be soothed back to a comfortable sleep. I strongly recommend bringing one along to our session. The use of a parent’s finger as a pacifier is not recommended as hands tend to get in the way of posing.
Here is a great blog post that I put together showcasing two cutie pies during their mini newborn session. One stayed awake, one was asleep. Both were adorable!
What if my newborn is fussy?
I heard of Sophie Crew Photography from another mom in my La Leche League group. I saw her son’s newborn photos and totally swooned!! Sophie is very friendly and accommodating. She is so patient and kind with newborns. I have a very cuddly baby who never wants to be put down. I love all of the photos Sophie was able to capture. She is a true professional. We fondly call her a baby sculptor 🙂

Sophie is amazing with newborns and her photographs are priceless. Her patience and skill in posing newborns in order to capture the perfect shot is incredible. We have so many of her pictures on display in our house and I receive compliments from everyone who sees them.

Newborn Photography Session
She has such talent and you can tell that she puts her passion in each shot. She has such finesse when it comes to capturing the perfect moment! And patience! It takes so much patience to get that perfect shot, and that’s why she nails it every time! She captured some of the sweetest smiles of our new baby! She somehow knew when that magic moment would happen, and she waited patiently for it!
We are so in love with our photos! They captured moments that will now live on my wall forever.
Sophie is so warm and caring. You can tell she puts her heart and soul into her work. We are so grateful to her, and I highly recommend her to anyone!

Newborn baby photography
When she did our maternity pictures, we went to Windansea beach. It was very crowded but Sophie successfully photoshopped out all the other people so it looked like my husband and I were on our own private beach!
She also has a great personality which makes the session fun. I would highly recommend Sophie to anyone wanting beautiful pictures!

Sophie is a phenom in the newborn department. Her post processing has a style all its own, and she is a master at what she does. She has photographed my older kiddos, and I adore the images, but I sure wish I knew her when my babies were little. 🙂
