Hey there, expectant parents!

If you're wondering when the best time is to schedule those precious newborn photos, you've come to the right place. We understand that capturing those early moments is incredibly special, so let's dive right in and answer the big question: How soon should you schedule newborn photos?

The short answer? As early as possible! We encourage parents to consider scheduling their newborn photo session as early as the second trimester of pregnancy. Crazy, right? But trust us, there's a method to our madness.

You see, newborn photography is all about capturing those fleeting moments of your little one's early days. Babies grow and change so quickly, and before you know it, those tiny fingers and adorable chubby cheeks will be a thing of the past. By scheduling your session early, you ensure that you have a spot reserved with us during that crucial window of time when your baby is brand new and oh-so-squishy.

But why the second trimester, you ask? Well, for starters, it gives us plenty of time to plan and prepare for your session. We can discuss your vision, go over any special requests or themes you have in mind, and make sure everything is ready to go when your little bundle of joy arrives. Plus, scheduling early also gives you peace of mind knowing that you have one less thing to worry about during those hectic first few weeks with a newborn. Instead of scrambling to find a photographer at the last minute, you can relax knowing that your session is already locked in on the calendar.

Of course, we understand that every pregnancy is different, and sometimes life throws us a curveball. Baby may come unexpectedly early and scheduling early guarantees we are ready whenever baby comes! We are, of course, happy to accommodate last-minute bookings whenever possible. So if you find yourself in the third trimester with no session scheduled, don't panic! Reach out to us, and we'll do our best to fit you in.
