When is the best time to book newborn and maternity photography? Do not wait, I book 3-4 months before your due date.
When would I schedule a photography session? Today as soon as you know.
Do not wait I am almost total the last minute if you know you will be getting newborn photos.
The busiest times of the year are from February-April and August, October-Beginning of December. I have only 1 opening a month at this moment. If you think you want to have newborn photos taken or aren’t sure you can always call me and I am happy to answer as many questions as you like and help prepare for your session. I give a pre-consulation over the phone to help you book the correct dates as well to help you coordinate your backgrounds with your clothing plus help you define goals are for your newborn or baby session.
How far after the baby is born do you usually take the photos? first 14 days.
Do You think there would be enough time to do all this since the baby’s not due until December to have Christmas cards made? After your session I can give you a couple photos for your Christmas card attached to an email. Yes you have enough time, it usually takes me 3-4 days to edit. Normally I try to only take 2-3 sessions total in December because of the holidays I take off a week to spend with my family. Christmas is a very special time for our family. Make sure to remind me when you leave leave that you want need some photos asap for cards.
Do you have props in your photography studio or do I need to bring them myself? I have a giant closet full and fully stocked studio of props and physical props you do not need to buy anything or bring it. If you have something sentimental you are welcome to bring and I will include it into the pictures. You are welcome to bring something sweet that means something from his/her nursery.
Are there packages for the sessions? yes there is a combination package I offer if you buy both sessions I give $100 off for booking both maternity and newborn full sessions (2hours)
Mini newborn session is 10 or 15 digital high resolution images
Do you offer a print release? Yes I offer print releases with all my packages where you can print the photos yourself. I highly recommend you use our professional printing services the difference in the printing is a whole of a difference between local printers and a professional printer.
My normal average newborn session is 25 pictures is which takes hours, unless you are booking newborn mini sessions they are 1 hour.
Here is what an average normal session looks like for 25 photos. If you are thinking about doing a family session 35 photos would be a better option for you because you will have additional photos of your children together and family as well.
5-10 baby on blanket- poses average from 1-2 hours
3 physical props
1 mom & baby
1 Dad and baby
2-5 family pictures
Close up of feet and one of hands, or lips and ears. Whichever you prefer make sure you tell me you would like those.
3-5 I always take closeups of baby’s face.
Newborn mini session is usually baby on blanket or if you only want physical props you have that option as well.
Please make sure we have a pre-consulation over the phone before to help get you more prepared.
