Newborn Questionnaire


Because every family is unique, I want to customize your session just for you.

The questions that follow will help me capture your newborn session in a way that resonates with you and represents this special celebration.

Please feel free to answer the questions in as much detail as possible – it really helps to get to you know you prior to our session.

If there is a section that doesn’t apply, feel free to skip over it, and if you would prefer to chat this over by phone or in person, I am happy to do that as well!

I’m so glad you decided to book a session with Andrea Todt Photography!
I can’t wait to capture precious memories that your family will enjoy for years to come.

Do you have a colour scheme and any specific props or poses or ideas in mind for your session? (This question is very important to me.)

Tell me if you have specific poses, set ups or colours that you may have seen on website pages/Etsy that are must-haves.

Do you like headbands, hats, outfits, and wrapped newborns or would you prefer a simpler set up?

Are you willing to have baby use a pacifier for soothing during the session?

Are you ok with some ‘incentives/bribes’ offered to the siblings (if applicable)? If so, would you prefer a small treat (like a lollipop), or a small gift (like stickers), or prefer to promise your own rewards?

All images are finalized, but Do you have any specific features you would want retouched? Examples include acne, recent bruises, birthmarks, etc.
