It is very important to book your newborn session while still pregnant. For those that have only come across newborn photography after baby is already here, they will realise it can be tricky to find a professional newborn photographer that has space within the ideal 2 week period of baby first arriving!
Why are newborn photographers so booked up when baby is already here? We ask that clients pre-book their due date with us after their 12 or 20 week scan, this way we can be prepared for your newborn’s arrival and save them a spot during your due date month. It works better to pre-book because the ideal window to photograph baby is under 2 weeks old. If you wait to book until baby is here time goes by quickly and before you know it they are one month old and it’s too late to get the new, sleepy images that you love!
It is best to photograph baby under 2 weeks old as they are much sleepier and womb-like which results in an easy session for baby as they are much easier to pose as this stage. This results in the best possible images! Also, your baby is going to change SO quickly and getting photo’s of them at their smallest, purest time is so lovely to look back, even just a few weeks later! You may feel like you’ve been pregnant forever, but as soon as your baby arrives, time will fly – i promise!
As a result of pre-booking clients, we are often very booked up in advance so it is best to secure as spot as soon as you can, before baby is here! This way we can prebook you in and have a spot secured for you when baby arrives! It is just one less thing to take care of when baby is here and you can focus on getting to know baby instead of frantically searching for an available newborn photographer when baby is a week old already.
