My baby has not been born yet, so how do I book a newborn session?

With so many preparations to be made before your new bundle of joy arrives into your world, the thought of booking a newborn session in time, can be overlooked. Parents often don't realise the importance of capturing all those tiny features, fluffy hair and all that is freshly newborn with a newborn session, until after the baby has been born and a few months have past. With the first few weeks of baby's arrival, new parents are experiencing sleepless nights, new routines and visiting families. Life is pretty much a blur. Your newborn is changing daily! These early days are so precious and should be cherished for years to come.

You may have no idea when your baby will be born, so how do you know when the best time would be to book your baby's first photo shoot. It is a question that is often asked. I will explain why it's important to schedule newborn sessions in advance, and the best time to do this.

The best time for a newborn shoot is between 5-21 days after your little one is born.  At this age they are still sleepy and we can get those tiny curled up poses.  We use your due date as a guide but don't arrange the actual session date until baby arrives. We do recommend securing your slot with a deposit, usually after your 12 or 20 week scan, as we only allow a limited amount of newborn sessions per month, to ensure that we can fit all the new arrivals in . Another reason to book early is because I do get booked up in advance. After I reach my total for pre-bookings, I don't take any more babies for that month. So when baby has been born and you are home, we ask you to contact us as soon as possible, so that we can arrange and confirm the newborn shoot for your little one.

By scheduling early, you are guaranteed a newborn session for when your gorgeous new baby decides to arrive.
