The best time to book your maternity session is as early as possible as I take limited bookings every week to allow for births that are unpredictable and the best time to capture your bump is between 32 and 36 weeks, this way your bump will be nice and round and you should still be able to move around freely.
The best time to photograph a newborn is before baby is two weeks old. Ideally I like to photograph babies in their first week if baby is healthy & mum feels well enough. After two weeks of age babies can be harder to settle and baby spots and colic can happen. Unless you are having a scheduled c-section, you are not going to know when your baby will be born.
Please feel free to contact me anytime during your pregnancy and I can pencil a date in based on your due date then once you have had baby you can get ask your partner to contact me if you are in hospital or send me a quick email yourself when you are home & we can arrange the best day for your newborn photo session. If you are due soon give me a call or email firstname.lastname@example.org as I have to juggle appointments and may have availability.
When you are exhausted at 3am doing a feed you’ll look at these images in your nursery and remember the joy and love you felt at your growing bump and just how tiny your brand new baby was. Investing in these once in a life time moments is the right decision. There is no better way to remember these precious moments then with a professional photo session leaving you with images that will be treasured for ever.
