The most popular time to book your newborn photo session
You hold in your arms the most beautiful miracle of life! Everything about this little human is precious and you never want to forget how this baby makes you feel.
What is the right time to get a Newborn Photoshoot?
The most popular timeframe to get your newborn's photoshoot done is between 2 to 8 weeks. They are still sleeping a lot and are rarely bothered by external stimuli. They are their smallest in the first month and you are in awe of how tiny a baby can be!
However, a lot of times moms tell me they missed the newborn photoshoot of their babies and talk about the enormous guilt that comes with it.
I get it, the newborn stage is the most beautiful and bittersweet time in a baby's life. But a 3 month old is just as precious. So please don't let the guilt take you for a ride. If your baby is 3, 4 or 5 months old and you are ready to capture these beautiful fleeting moments, book yourself a Newborn Photoshoot!
When should I book a Newborn Photoshoot?
The ideal time to book your favorite photographer for a Newborn Photoshoot is when you enter your third trimester. Photographers usually get booked months in advance and this is the last worry you want in your life when your baby is born. So knock this one out when you still have time.
