When should you book your newborn portraits?
The simple answer is… as far in advance as you can. Realistically though, I know that finding a newborn photographer is not at the very top of the list for most people. You have to find an OB or Midwife, decide what hospital you want to birth at or if you would like a homebirth, figure out baby’s name, etc. And as you get further along in your pregnancy, the to-do list can keep getting longer and longer (and trust me, I have 4 kids, and I definitely know how that feels! lol)
I also know that once your baby is born, you’ll be so infatuated with him or her and also be focused on resting, nursing, and figuring out how to get into a routine with your new baby and possibly your older children as well. Selecting a photographer might not be top of mind then also.
That’s why it’s best to book your baby’s photo session between two and four months before your estimated due date. Booking at least 2 months in advance will secure your newborn on my schedule, ensuring that even during the busy times you will have a space on my calendar. This will allow us to meet up to go over everything for your session, plan color schemes and poses, and even allow you to look and feel all the high quality products I offer, from heirloom albums to canvas wall galleries. I want to help you from start to finish, and tell your baby’s story in the perfect way.
