The location of your session is up to you. For best results, I recommend outdoors in open shade or indoors near big windows. A typical session lasts about one hour, but please allow for extra time in case your little one needs a break or two. A few of my favorite places to shoot include…Downtown, Omaha…Elmwood Park…Schramm State Park…my property in Louisville, NE…dirt roads in the country.
In order to get the best results, newborn sessions need to take place within the first 2 weeks of life. Please contact Taylan Brooks Photography as soon as possible to reserve your spot, as there are a limited number of newborn sessions available each month. Once booked, you are guaranteed a spot, even if your little one arrives early or late. Newborn sessions are done in the comfort of your home using window light. During your session, I will work around your baby’s schedule including breaks for feeding & fussiness. Newborn sessions may take up to three hours, so please schedule accordingly.
Think simple and comfortable!! Things that work well…layers – blue jeans – bare feet. Things to avoid…large logos – wide stripes – white clothing.If more than one subject is being photographed make sure everyone is dressed similarly – but not necessarily matching. Plan on bringing at least one extra outfit for each child. If you are having trouble deciding what to wear, browse through the galleries for inspiration or contact me, I’d be happy to make some suggestions.

Approximately 2-3 weeks following your session, you will be e-mailed a password to your private online proofing gallery.
