Swade Studios is based out of Olathe and serves the Kansas City area. I specialize in newborn and baby photography and also love maternity and family portrait photography. It is always best to book your session well in advance so that there is time to plan the location, wardrobe and to be sure you get the time frame you want. For baby, maternity and family sessions I spend up to 2 hours for a session, newborns up to 4 hours.
My home studio is located in Olathe, close to Blackbob and 127th. All newborn sessions take place in my studio and are scheduled during the week with a start time of 10am.
Newborn sessions should be booked while you are still pregnant, preferably at least a month prior to your due date. I often get booked up a month or two in advance so it is never too early! The deposit can be paid and then the session date is scheduled after your baby is born. The session takes place within the first 2 weeks after birth, usually around 8-14 days old. This is when they are still sleeping a lot and easy to curl up into the cute poses. I do not schedule sessions after the baby reaches 2 weeks old, except for special circumstances. I supply everything needed including props, accessories, blankets, and backdrops. After booking we start planning the session based on your color and style preferences. I spend up to 4 hours for a newborn session to allow plenty of time to get a variety of shots and for feedings and comforting.
