When it comes to booking your newborn’s photography session, there are a lot of questions about the process. If your new little one isn’t here yet, it’s hard to figure out a schedule. When do you call? How do you know what day to request? Do you wait until the baby has arrived or take care of scheduling before? Hopefully, I can answer some of your questions with this post.

Years of experience has made this a streamlined process: First, contact me anytime during your pregnancy to schedule a pre-session consultation (usually with cupcakes or ice cream) where we’ll chat about the details: style, props, nursery theme, plans for wall art and whether or not you’d like to also set up a maternity photo session as part of a Belly/Baby Combo Collection. Then you’ll pay your session fee, and your due date is marked in my calendar. Because babies have their own schedule (or lack thereof), I always keep flexibility in my calendar in the weeks before and after your due date. We’ll keep in contact during your pregnancy, potentially photograph you at a belly session (if so, then we’ll see each other at your portrait viewing and again at your portrait delivery day) and touch base as your due date approaches. Once baby arrives, you can call, email or text me and we will set a firm date/time for your in-home session. (While I generally try to photograph newborns during their first 2 weeks after birth, sometimes life is out of our control and I’ll never turn away a baby due to age.) Most of the time, newborn sessions are set up as a morning appointment; babies tend to be less fussy and sleepier, plus most Arizona homes allow for beautiful lighting earlier in the day and block out late afternoon sun. About 7-10 days after your photo session, I’ll come back over to your home, and sit with you as we proof your images. You’ll select your favorites for wall art, gift prints and/or announcements, decide images for an album and generally “ooh” & “ahh” over the cuteness of your precious new miracle.
If you’re discovering this article after baby has already made her debut, call me anyway! While most of the year, I do book weeks in advance, sometimes the stars are aligned and our schedules work perfectly!
