WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY NEWBORN SESSION?

We suggest that you book your appointment when you are 30 weeks pregnant. The closer you get to the arrival of your baby, the more things will be on your to do list. Booking early will give you peace of mind that you will be well taken care of in our Saraland, Alabama portrait studio. When we book your session, we will book you on a flex schedule - meaning that if you baby comes early or late, you will still be photographed on the day you selected. 

Booking early, also gives you maternity portrait options. We schedule most maternity shoots while booking newborn shoots. Most of our Maternity shoots happen between weeks 33-35.

 

WHAT IF I ALREADY HAD MY BABY?

Call us as soon as possible and tell us you'd like to schedule a newborn. We know that newborn portraits are time sensitive and will work with you to get you scheduled during the first 12 days.

 

HOW OLD ARE BABIES FOR NEWBORN PORTRAITS?

Every studio is different. We start taking newborn babies for portraits at day 5 and will photograph newborns through day 14. After day 14, your baby will stiffen up a bit and will not be able to do the cuddly bendy poses but will still photograph well for everything else. Time is the key, think the sooner the better for the best portraits. Babies are significantly bigger before he or she hits their first month milestone.

 

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME?

That's the easy part. When you book in with us, we will send you a newborn homework packet. It will have a list of what to bring and what to do to ensure that you have amazing newborn portraits. Homework is sent to you as soon as you alert us that you have had the baby and when we confirm your new flex date and time.
