How to book your Newborn Session


Tips for Booking Your Newborn Session

When it comes to booking your session, there are a lot of questions about how the process works. Since your new little peanut isn’t here yet, it’s hard to figure out a schedule. Here is what we suggest:

Contact me during the beginning of your third trimester to set a date for the session. We require a deposit of 50% of the session fee to hold the date for you. Typically I book  newborn sessions during the first 14 days after birth. This means that we will schedule the session for sometime within two weeks of your due date. Newborns sleep a lot (or we hope they will) and in the first 2 weeks they are perfect to capture in those sweet little positions. After that time period they tend to move a lot more and get more squirmy and alert. 


We will also hold a spot for two backup dates – one a week after the original session date, and one a week prior to your due date. This ensures that if your little nugget doesn’t come according to schedule you’ll still be covered. I also know that not every birth goes perfect. Somtimes your stay may be longer, or have an unexpected c- section and you and baby need more time to rest. 

Keep in contact with us as your pregnancy comes to a close so we can be prepared. After the baby is born, give us a call or shoot us a message so we can make sure that one of the dates we have set will work out.
