When should I book my newborn photoshoot?
Shutter & Co Photography | 15-05-2020
I get asked often “When is the best time to book my newborn session?” I prefer to do newborn photos within the first 2 weeks if possible. Sometimes things arise, baby has complications, mum is overwhelmed or photos just happened to be the last thing on your mind. I always try to accommodate all babies as best I can regardless of the age. If your baby is a little older, we’ll still do a shoot for you, it sometimes takes a little longer as babies are more awake and wriggly. Still incredibly adorable and sometimes the eye contact and facial expressions are worth the loss of the naked posing. If those cute little rolls and bums are important for you then try to do your session within the first 2 weeks. During the shoot we are happy to include photographs of Mum, Dad and siblings (please let us know who you would like to join the shoot at the time of booking). We have lots of props and wraps to use during your shoot, our photographers love to be unique though, so if you have any items to personalise your photograph we would welcome your ideas and input. It’s never too early to book your newborn session with me, I recommend you pre pay for your shoot as soon as you decide we are the studio for you, then drop us a message with babies due date so we can make sure we allow enough capacity in our diary. If you have prepaid for your shoot, we do our best to offer you a date within two weeks of you notifying us baby has arrived.
