When Should I book my Newborn Photography Session? Premier Bergen County Newborn Photographer


When should I book my Newborn Photo Session?

This is a great question! One that I get asked ALL THE TIME by my clients. It is really important too! This is what I recommend...

I tell all my expecting mommy clients about what I like to call the "golden hour" of infant photography.


The "golden hour" of infant photography is a magical time-frame of your newborn's life where they are perfectly sweet and supremely sleepy... So sleepy that they will allow me to safely position them into any sweet and cozy position. Any guesses on when this time-frame is??

Believe it or not, you should book your baby photo sessions for when your baby is 1-2 weeks old!

The Golden Hour of infant photography begins the first few weeks of your baby's life. It is the perfect time to capture your baby in their freshest, most sleepy, and compliant state... Meaning, once your baby is asleep, I will be able to pose your sleeping baby much easier than an older baby. They grow and become aware so fast, it is important to stick within the 1-2 week time frame.  Any older and your baby will have a harder time falling asleep and will be less likely to tolerate being moved around or positioned after they have fallen asleep. You want your baby so sleepy they will allow me to safely position them into any sweet and safe position. So book your Newborn Photo Session early to secure your spot.

I also offer in-hospital photo sessions. Contact me for more details.


You've decided to go ahead and book your first baby photo session, now what?

Well, you contact me of course!

From there, we will discuss your due date, whether you will be having a scheduled C-Section, your vision for your baby's photo session, whether you want an in-home newborn photo session or an in-studio newborn photo session and we will also discuss possible booking dates.

If you are not having a scheduled C-Section, I will block out the two weeks surrounding your due date to make sure you have a secured booking date as we never know when those babies will make their appearance!

Then we plan and organize your baby photo session over the months/weeks leading up to your due date to ensure everything is in order.

Once you have had your sweet baby, I ask that you contact me as soon as you can so we can solidify a final date for your Newborn Photo Session.

If you have any questions or would like to book your Newborn Photo Session please feel free to contact me!
