Newborn Photography- FAQs
The time to have newborn photography is so special, but your first time can have you full of questions.
I am here to walk you through the ins and outs with some frequently asked questions.
When is the best time to book your newborn session?
It's best to book in your second trimester.
This will ensure that I have a spot for you on my calendar.
I book a limited number of newborns each month to ensure I am able to schedule within the ideal time frame for newborn photos.
When does the session take place?
I like to see newborns between 7-21 days after birth. This is the best time to capture those sleepy and curled up newborn poses.
how do I pre-book when I do not know when my baby is going to be born?
Birth and the immediate after care can be unpredictable for both mom and baby.
I use your due date as a placeholder until both mom and baby have been released home from the hospital.
I ask that pre-booked parents reach out, as soon as mom has delivered, with any release date info they have at the time.
Once we know when mom and baby are heading home, I'll send over a list of dates and times within the preferred newborn window of 7-21 days.
What does it cost to book?
There is a $50 non-refundable retainer in order to hold your due date. This retainer is not an additional fee. It is applied to your session fee.
Will I need to bring anything to my session?
You do not need to bring anything to your session other than the items needed to care for baby.
I offer a fully stocked newborn studio; however, I understand that my clients may have sentimental items they would like to include.
These items are welcomed.
Can siblings participate?
Yes, siblings are welcomed during the newborn session as long as you have booked a Deluxe or Premium Collection.
Siblings are not included in the Petite Newborn Collection.
What happens if my baby arrives early?
I ask that parents reach out after birth, and to keep me updated on baby’s progress and release date. Once baby is released, we schedule a little more time for the session and work at baby’s pace.
