Thanks for your interest in JaNa Photography. We would love to be your photographers. Here are the newborn photography packages information and FAQ. All the lines include very important information for planning, booking and getting ready for your newborn photography session.
We photograph newborns ranging from 6 days to 20 days old; depends on their weight.
However, if you are planning a session ahead of time, we suggest to have photographs taken within the first two weeks of your baby’s birth – this is when they are still sleepy and flexible for posing.
The newborn session lasts around 2-4 hours depending on the package you choose.
This allows plenty of time for feeding, putting the baby to sleep and changing etc.
Packages include some family photos of baby and parents/sibling, as well as close-up shots, etc and the props are included.
The session is only for parents and their babies/kids.
There would be a $100 charge for an additional family member which comes with 2 additional images. You need to inform us ahead of time if you want to add family members (grandparents) to the session.

Is studio flashlight photography safe for babies and newborns?
The professional studio flashlight setup, never can harm them while they are sleeping. However, even with open eyes, we use a reflective lighting system professionally set for newborn photography, that wouldn’t cause any problem. Many parents love to have picture of their babies with open eyes when they are wide awake showing us their most adorable facial expressions.
In Jana photography, we also have a natural light studio. It means if your baby doesn’t like to go back to sleep, we can definitely use the beauty of natural light. Read studio flashlight photography blog for more information.
Should I buy a special outfit for my newborn photography session?
Most newborn images are done without clothing, and we have a ton of props and blankets to use, so you don’t have to worry about purchasing anything! The baby wraps and props are included in all the packages free of charge.
How would be the process after the session?
After each session, we go through the photos and narrow down the gallery to the best pictures. You just need to wait about 1 week for your gallery to get ready for viewing. Your online viewing gallery you get a chance to see all the digital proofs/raw images.
In most cases, the gallery comes with more than 50 images. That’s where you make your favorite selection and choose the ones you like the best as part of your package. We don’t give away raw images for free. You have the option to buy the raw images or add more pictures a la carte and have them professionally edited.
Once we receive the favorite selection the order goes on the editing line up and waits for its turn for the professional retouching. The total turnaround is about 4-6 weeks depends on how busy the line is. Faster you submit your selection, sooner the project goes on the line.
If the package includes prints, we recommend our clients to first choose the photos, then get the edited versions and order the prints out of the high-resolution edited versions which come in color and black & white version.
Are we able to get/purchase more photos?
You will get the exact same number of pictures as purchased in the package you book. If you like more photos you have the option to purchase extra images a la carte. We don’t give away raw images for free and they are all copyright protected. Since we share a nice variety of pictures in your online gallery, people always end up adding more pictures as we always go over the client’s expectation. We like this process to be hard for our clients on a positive way. Always feels good to have more options.
The additional images (digital copy) are each $40 + GST and they get professionally retouched provided in both color and Black&White version in high resolution. We also have package discounts for adding 5 or 10 extra images.
How should I prepare?
Once you book and secure your spot, we send you a confirmation email. The email includes information about getting ready, clothing, necessary items to bring, and details for the address and parking.
