When to Book Your Newborn Session

One of the most common questions from Metro Vancouver clients is: “When should I book my newborn photography session?” Newborns aren’t normally born on their due date, and newborn sessions are booked in advance, so this leaves first time moms wondering.

Most clients contact me during their second or early third trimester to reserve their newborn session. I offer a date about a week after your due date and require a non-refundable retainer fee to hold the date for you. As newborns can be born early or late, wiggle room is kept around each booked due date, and I turn away other inquiries for similar due dates.

Posed newborn sessions are held 7-14 days after birth, while baby is still sleepy, curled, and poseable, so communication is key for scheduling. During your pregnancy I ask that you keep in touch with any updates that can affect your session date (going late, planned surgery, induction, etc), and have someone contact the studio within 48 hours of birth to confirm or request a new session date.

Hope to hear from you soon!
