When is the best time to book my Newborn Photo Shoot?

Updated: Oct 9, 2018

Our Newborn sessions are one of a two-part 'Grow' experience. You will visit us for two photographic sessions across a period of 6 months. You can select two sessions from Bump, Newborn or Baby (around six month old). We have designed this experience to capture a magical time of great growth and change through a collection of portraits you'll treasure.

If you choose a Newborn session, the timing can be critical to capture that delicate newborn look that's lost within the first 3 weeks. We don't book appointments until you have given birth. This is because your little bundle of joy may make an early or late arrival into the world.

Did you know that only 1 in 4 babies arrive on their due date?

Our advice is to purchase your voucher when you fall pregnant so that you have plenty of time to decide on your shoot combination. You may choose a Bump session to enjoy before your newborn arrives. Or a Baby session to enjoy when the little one is around 6 months old.

Once you have purchased your voucher, you're ready to go. Give us a call promptly after giving birth. We will find an appointment that suits you. We would strongly advise to try and have your appointment within 3 weeks of birth. Your newborn will be tiny, wrinkled and still curled to the shape of the womb so they can be gently posed to create the most appealing photographs.

We are very understanding of the fact that circumstances don't always allow for families to have their appointment in the first 3 weeks. We'll schedule your appointment for whenever you're ready but bear in mind, after the first month, that special Newborn look is lost so it may be best to opt for a Baby session instead.

If you have more questions, don't hesitate to call the studio or pop us an email
