Congratulations on your pregnancy! Welcoming a newborn baby into the family is one of the happiest and most exciting time in your life.
These days it's really essential to do your homework when looking for a newborn photographer, especially with so many new photographers popping up and offering newborn photography services after photographing a baby or two. If quality and safety are important to you, someone with experience and specialized training is something you need.
When Should You Book Your Session?
I recommend booking your newborn session for when you are in your second trimester. I only book a small number of newborns per month. This spots often fill quickly. This is to limit the traffic that comes through the studio in order to maintain a clean and safe environment to host your session in. I also want to make sure that you are given the attention you deserve from start to finish, so that you get exactly what you're looking for: a smooth, seamless experience and beautiful, perfect portraits.
What Do You Need To Bring?
Your session is completely customized for you, and I provide absolutely everything. The moment you walk through the door of my studio, I take care of the rest. Designed with your comfort in mind, my studio provides you and your family with a comfortable area to relax and enjoy your session. Complete with a comfortable couch, snacks, water, and a fully-stocked diaper changing area you won't have to worry about forgetting anything at home.
When it comes to props, I have more than you could ever imagine. With over 120 different coloured backdrops, every style of headband, hat, and bonnet you could image and dozens of high-end props there is absolutely no need to have to bring anything extra along (unless you really want to!)
If you are in your second trimester, it is the perfect time to book your newborn session. Only a few newborns are booked per month; these spots tend to fill quickly. On occasion, there may be a last-minute spot available but this is not guaranteed.
When is the best time to have my baby's photos done?
The best time to have your baby's photos done is within those first 10-21 days of life. Upon booking, your due date acts as your tentative booking. Once your baby arrives, we will schedule your baby's session according to their age. It may seem like this is early, but babies cooperate and do quite well during their sessions while they are still very fresh.
Where are newborn sessions shot?
All of my newborn sessions take place in my Evanston NW studio. It has absolutely everything you and your baby will need during your session, so you can relax and enjoy this experience completely stress-free.
