Pregnant and Need to Schedule Newborn Photos?
You’re expecting, and now you need to figure out a whole new life in the next few months. I’m here to help you figure a small portion of that out!
So, what do you need to know about scheduling a session for your newborn baby? Let’s start there.
Do your research!
What photographers are in your area? What are peers, or previous clients, saying about them? What does their portfolio look like? Is it the style you want to display in your home?
You’ve decided you like their work – Now it’s time to contact!
Do they have availability? What kind of packages do they offer? What are their safety qualifications? How long have they been in business? Are they licensed + insured? I’ve seen so many novice photographers not even know they could be licensed and insured – that means they’re not running a legit business, FYI.
You scheduled your newborn photos – How to prepare!
Now that you’re booked with *me* (wink, wink) I’ll put your due date on my calendar. I reserve a certain amount of due dates each month, since we don’t know exactly when babies will come this ensures that we will get your hard date within those first two weeks after birth. Your baby has already arrived and you’re trying to squeeze them in – ALWAYS reach out. Sometimes all my babies come at once leaving some last minute openings.
Once we confirm your session date I will send over a pre-session prep guide to help prepare you and baby for a successful session, all the way down to some styling advice for parent shots.
If you’re ready to set up your newborn session with us – feel free to take a look at our package list and contact us!
