Newborn session…When Do We Schedule?

I start planning for your newborn session way before your little one arrives. This is because we don’t always know exactly when they’ll be born. Sometimes it’s later or they could decide to arrive a little earlier. You’ll need time to rest after the birth of your baby, so I take this into consideration when planning your session. The two week postpartum mark seems to be the sweet spot though!

I like to schedule newborn sessions within the first month following your birth. This gives me the chance to capture your newborn baby’s unique facial expressions and squishy little baby pieces perfectly. Babies tend to sleep more often during those first few weeks, which helps me get the best shots for you as well. But don’t fret if they are awake during their session, this happens and is perfectly ok!

When scheduling your newborn session, you will simply email me your due date and what session package you would like. If you are taking advantage of the free maternity session, this will be scheduled when you initially book and I like to do these around 30-36 weeks. Once you complete your session proposal with the maternity and/or the newborn session of your choice, I will hold your due date window {your due date with 3 weeks before and 1 weeks after} and we will start planning your session.
