Are you pregnant? Did you know that now is the time to hire your photographer for your newborn session?
You see your newborn session (if you want posed, sleepy baby pictures) should take place at around 6-12 days after baby is born. You may think that is plenty of time to get a photographer lined up, but it really isn't. Many factors can play a role in you missing out on these picture. Like, sleep deprivation for one!! Also, you want to make sure you hire a photographer that is good and knows how to handle babies. There is a special skill to photographing newborns and not everyone is great at it. Also, they may not have any opening... This would cause you some undue stress at a time that can already be stressful.
So while your pregnant start looking for the photographer who you would like to capture your little ones adorable fresh baby self! These are treasured memories and you want someone who you both like their work and like them. Ask questions and really dig through their work to make sure their style fits your taste. You want your newborn pictures to look good in your house so if your house is decorated in all modern furnishings and you hire someone who's work is natural and organic you may not want to hang any wall art from your session. Once you find them book it. Then when baby comes you let them know and they put you on the schedule. Easy peasy!
This adorable little boy with the webbed toes was one of my last minute bookings. And I am really glad I was able to fit him into my schedule because he is absolutely delicious!!!
