Its such an exciting time when you've got a little one on the way - I mean, you've got SO many things to think about and organise - the cot, the nappies, a stroller, change table, baby clothes, getting the car seat installed, having scans, writing your birth plan and wow... the list seems endless doesn't it?
Thinking about booking a newborn portrait session seems like a LONG way off - you've got plenty of time, right?
Plus - how can we book a session in, when we aren't exactly sure WHEN baby is going to arrive??!!
Did you know that the ideal time to do your newborn portrait session is when they are between 6-16 days old to make the most of that super curled, super sleepy window?
Personally, I only book a certain amount of newborn sessions each month. When your book your newborn portrait session with Hilary Hudson Photography, you are reserving a spot in my calendar based on your due date. The actual session isn't scheduled until after you let me know your baby has arrived - and thats when we schedule the exact session date. This requires a lot of flexibility on the photographers behalf, as you can imagine!
Here's my top reasons for booking your newborn session while you're still pregnant:
So - when should I book?
Ideally, around your 2nd trimester is best. I am often booked out months in advance, and you know what? Its an awful feeling turning clients away simply because I cant fit them in. Please dont let that happen to you!
But what if my baby has already been born?
You know what? Lots of families dont even think about doing a newborn photography session until after the baby has been born. If this is you, you’re certainly not alone.
If your baby has already been born please contact me ASAP to check last minute availability. I might be able to fit you in if other babies have arrived a little earlier or later than planned.
Also, if your baby is already older than 3-4 weeks, you don’t have to miss out! I regularly photograph ‘older newborn’ babies and I also offer an Older Newborn Session which are suitable for babies aged up to about 8 weeks.
