When should I schedule my Newborn session?
Newborn Scheduling can be overwhelming at times. Most parents contacted me after their newborn is born to inquire about a session to see if we have any last minute availability. Fortunately, we do but not always! I encourage parents to book around their second trimester to ensure that we have availability. Sometime we may not be in luck to fit you in, so keep that in mind when booking your next appointment with us. Once we booked our session, I sent out a prep guide to prep the parents for their upcoming session. It covers the basics of how to prepare for your session, what to bring, and what to wear. You have enough going on at home with a brand new baby, so we make it super easy for you to prep for your session.
Most of our clients reserve their sessions while they’re still pregnant to ensure that they have a spot on our calendar. It’s never too early to book with us and sometimes we are the first to know about a pregnancy before the clients’ extended family. But don’t worry, keeping secrets is one of our specialties.
How old should my newborn be for the session?
To ensure that our clients get the best experience from us, we only schedule a limited number of clients a month. Once you’re on the calendar, all you would have to do is let us know when your baby has arrived. In general, we photograph baby’s in between 12-21 days of life. We’ve photographed up to 6 weeks, but it’s not ideal for true baby photos unless your baby was born prematurely. Just contact us to see if we have availability to squeeze you in!
My clients are never left hanging during sessions with me. I will guide you through the entire experience. All of those little details are important, and I’m constantly looking for them.
How do we book our newborn session date in advance when we don’t know the exact date our baby will arrive?
Well thats simple, we schedule the exact date when you book and we work around that date. Booking a baby session with us before birth, simply means that you’re securing your guaranteed spot on our calendar.
How long does the session last?
Babies are unpredictable and it all depends on their needs. A newborn session can take up to 2 to 4 hours.
Is there anything that can be brought to the session?
Yes! of course. You are welcome to bring anything you like to incorporate in the session. However, I do have lots of props, outfits, bonnets, and wraps to choose from.
