Freqently Asked Questions
The Newborn Session

Why is it best to photograph your baby within the first 2 weeks?


1.  In the first 2 weeks they are still very sleepy which helps during the photography session,
2.  They are also very small and still curl up very easily which makes for some wonderful photos
3.  You may want some nice photos of your baby before he or she is 1 month old at which time baby 
     acne and hair loss quite commonly occurs. 


When is the best time to book a newborn session?
The simple answer is "the earlier the better".  You should book as soon as possible, preferably while you are pregnant to ensure that can fit you in.  


How long do the sessions take?


Sessions can last 2-3 hours to allow for feedings and changing.  Newborn sessions have been known to go on a little longer than normal shoots.  This allows us to capture some beautiful images. 


What is the best time of day to schedule a session?


Schedule the session in the morning.  This time of day is normally baby's happy time, but all babies are different so choose the best time when baby is relaxed and happy. 


What if my child is sick on the day of the session?


In the event of illness, I would recommend that you call and reschedule the session.  Trying to have children "soldier on" will only result in disappointment, as your finished images will most likely not be the "child you know".  The camera doesn't lie.  I would much prefer to reschedule a session if it means getting you images that you can truly be proud of. 


How do I schedule my session when I don't know when my baby will arrive?


I will tentatively schedule your session for your due date.  Obviously, this is just an estimate!  I would ask that you phone me or send through the newborn booking form within a few days of having your baby, at which time we will confirm the date and time of your actual session. 


How far in advance should I reserve my session?


It is best to reserve your newborn session while you are still pregnant to ensure having your session within those first 10 days.  Please reserve your session as soon as possible to ensure that we set aside time for your session.
