Should I Book a Newborn Photo Session?

Posted September 24th, 2013 by Lullabelly


Everyone loves those adorable photos of teeny tiny brand new squishy babies snuggled up and looking so angelic after they’re born.  Those photos are the result of well thought out newborn photo-shoots (and parents who planned ahead to make those newborn shoots happen!).

If you are considering booking a newborn photography session, here’s what you need to know:

Book Early: Book your session while you are in your second trimester because good newborn photographers get booked fast. Don’t worry if baby doesn’t arrive on time, newborn photographers usually hold space for you around your due date, not on an actual date.

Limited Time Only: The adorable little sleeping poses you see in those photos can only happen within the first few weeks after a baby is born – the period of time when all your baby does is sleep. The ideal age of your baby for a newborn shoot is about 5-12 days.

How Long Does A Shoot Take: A typical photo shoot lasts a few hours. That may seem like a long time to take a few photos of your baby, but keep in mind that baby will need to be nursed or comforted frequently. Plus there is time to set up each shot.

Wardrobe: Don’t worry about putting baby in a cutesy outfit. Most newborn photos are taken in baby’s natural state.

Choosing Your Photographer: Research a few local photographers. Check out their galleries and previous work to see if their style matches the look you are going for.

Remember you only have a finite period of time to capture that itty bitty baby. So go for it! You’ll never regret the gorgeous photos you’ll have as a keepsake.
