Did you know that the best time to book your session is before your baby is born? Having a baby is a stressful time for parents, it doesn't matter how organized you are or how much you have planned ahead. Your world is about to be turned upside down (in a good way of course!) and you won't have time to think about a newborn session. This happened to me with maternity photos and I totally regret not having professional photos showing off my twins belly!
Another reason to book your newborn session while you are still pregnant is that there is more time to plan the actual session. I cannot stress enough how important is to take advantage of the complimentary pre-session consult I offer. We meet in my studio and we sit down to go through all your questions and concerns for the session. We will also talk about what colors or theme you might like and how you want to display the photos of your baby. Yes! You will of course want to see that sweet face displayed everywhere! And of course you will want him or her to stay that tiny forever! (We all do!)
Last but not least, you want to book your newborn session early because the photographer you are dreaming of taking these precious photos of your new bundle of joy might be booked by the time you have your baby! Newborn sessions are done normally in between 7 to 12 days of your baby being born and you wont have the time to do all this research to find your photographer. You do not want to stick with photos that you are not proud to display at home, do you?
So, if you are expecting and you are in between 32 to 37 weeks, this is the best time to start looking! Good luck!
