Older Newborn Sessions

Older Newborn Sessions… Worried you won’t get the “newborn” images you want?

I find I have 2 types of clients, some book as soon as they find out they a pregnant or just after their 12 week scan – which is great (and super organised)

Then I have those, who have no idea when it is recommended you book your newborn session and leave it until either the week before they are due or even wait until the baby has ben born – sometimes not so great (as I cannot fit them in)

Both are absolutely fine, if I hold my hands up I was the latter (I wasn’t a newborn photographer back then) and I was fortunate enough that my chosen photographer could fit me in.

Of course it is always best being prepared and knowing you are booked in at the recommended timeframe, however for many reasons this can not always be the case.

The recommended

Sessions are best to be booked in whilst you are still pregnant, ideally after your 12 or 20 week scan. I do only book a certain amount of newborn babies each month to accommodate everyones pre booked date. 

Newborn Sessions are held within the first two weeks of your new babies life. The best time being 5-16 days old.

If your baby is older

Please don’t let this put you off if you are one day over or even longer. I have had older babies come to me before and they have been an absolute dream, this is just a guide, just get in touch and we can discuss.

Here is little little Luie who visited me when he was 14 weeks old…

So if you think you may have missed the boat, please do still get in touch
