I wanted to give some info on the best times to book certain types of sessions. I’m booking far into the summer and then Fall will be here before we know it. I know…seems like I’m jumping ahead but just so we can all plan and make sure everyone gets on the calendar…
Maternity Sessions – I like to do these sessions when mama is between 30-36 weeks…preferably somewhere in the middle there. We still want you to feel comfortable and not feel like you’re totally swollen 😉 Believe me, I know how it feels. You don’t feel like yourself but it’s so important to document this time. If anything, your kids will want to see what you looked like when they were in your belly! Please book these as soon as you can so we can make sure you get on the calendar before you don’t feel that cute anymore 😉
Newborn Sessions – Newborn sessions should be booked with me while you’re pregnant. I’ll set aside some time around your due date and once your sweet baby arrives, we’ll email or text to figure out the best date for everyone. Newborn sessions are done within the first 10 days so your little one is still sleepy and curled up for those posed baby shots. Trust me, those babies are much more awake after those first couple of weeks.
Milestone Sessions – These book up a few months in advance and since they’re done in studio, we sometimes need a little more of a heads up in order to get on the schedule. Email me asap to book 3 month sessions. These should be scheduled right after your newborn session. Sitting Up sessions can be a little tricky- while we want to get on the calendar early, we also want to make sure your baby is fully capable of sitting up. 1 year sessions aren’t too hard to plan for- just email me when you want to have those done!
And if you’re one that really likes to plan ahead – ask me about my Baby’s 1st Year Collection. This way you know for sure you’re set for Maternity, Newborn, Sitting up and 1 Year/Family pictures!
Family Sessions – Family sessions can be booked any time of the year. Fall is a VERY busy time but not the only time that’s beautiful for a session! I announce Fall Mini session dates towards the end of August and Mini Sessions are done End of Sept through October.
