When should you book your Newborn baby photography session?
If this is your first baby, maybe you have been dreaming about that newborn photography session.
Or maybe it was an after-thought? Either way, as a newborn photographer, I always make sure to keep some openings each month for those last-minute bookings.
However, they cannot be guaranteed and most photographers book up well in advance, so book when ever you think to reach out to your fave photog.
That being said, the timeline within your actual pregnancy is important. I personally choose to photograph expecting moms between 28-32 weeks. If this is your first baby, your bump might be smaller then women who have had babies before, so choosing closer to 30-32 weeks is ideal.
For newborn session, I always pencil my clients in at about 2 weeks past their due date with flexibility in my schedule. I intentionally only take on a few baby clients each month to ensure that if baby comes early or late, I will be free to accommodate that. It's imperative that you ask your photographer about flexibility with due dates!
