When to Schedule: Newborn Session | Lawrenceburg Indiana Family Photographer
WHEN SHOULD WE SCHEDULE?
The ideal time to book your newborn session is while you are still pregnant. I always tell my mama's-to-be to schedule your newborn session during your second trimester. This will get you the desired appointment date for your baby.
Don't worry, when you initially book your newborn session with me, I will schedule tentatively around your predicted due date. Whenever baby arrives we will then schedule a confirmed date & time for your session. We tend to play by baby's rules for scheduling this type of session, so don't worry if your sweet bundle of joy arrives earlier or later than your due date! Newborn session's are scheduled with date flexibility.
NEWBORN SESSIONS ARE BEST IF DONE WITHIN 2 WEEKS OF BIRTH. WHY?
The first 2 weeks are the best because this is when babies are totally unaware of what is happening around them and they normally are quite sleepy which makes for beautiful first moment bonding and snuggling photos. Also, a newborn's skin can go through a lot of changes as they grow (milk pimples and dry skin are very common in older babies), so it is recommended to shoot within that first 2 weeks of baby's birth.
