When should I book my newborn session?

The best time to book your newborn session is as soon as you know you want one!  To ensure your ideal photographer is available for you, it is best to plan ahead and book during pregnancy.  This allows time to plan for the amazing images, and you will have greater satisfaction with the overall experience.

So, you may ask, “when should I book my newborn session?”  Most of my clients book their session during the 2nd trimester.  I do try to accommodate late bookings whenever I can, but I cannot be in two places at once, so my time is limited.  Likely as soon as you know you are pregnant, you start thinking about how cute your baby will be, planning outfits and getting prepared for when they arrive.  Photos are part of those preparations and one of the very first experiences you will have with your little one.

Most newborn sessions take place within the first few weeks after baby is born.  This means having proper time to plan is truly important.  The best time to plan is before you deliver so that you can enjoy every moment once Baby comes.  It is especially important to book ahead if you wish to have Fresh 48 Photos, which occur within 2 days after Baby is born.
