The best time to photograph a newborn baby is when they are under two weeks of age, after two weeks babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up.
The majority of my clients contact me and book their newborn session while still pregnant. Since only a limited number of newborn sessions are booked each moth, this guarantees my availability. It’s always a good idea to reserve your session date while you are still pregnant.
Maternity sessions are best when scheduled sometime between weeks 30 and 36. It depends on the volume of your belly, whether or not your first pregnancy, whether it is one baby or multiple.
