When To Reserve Your Newborn Photos

A Comprehensive Guide To Reserving Newborn Photos With A Denver Newborn Photography Studio

When you are expecting a baby, the to-do list can seem a mile long. Between the real-life logistics of having a baby, and all of the other details that go into your home life with a newborn, reserving newborn portraits can sometimes fall on the back burner. As newborn photographers in the Denver area, one of the most frequently asked questions we receive is when to reserve your newborn photos at home.

In this guide, we will cover when the session should be reserved, why we recommend reserving newborn photos in advance, and how old should baby be.

When should I reserve my newborn photos?

We recommend reserving newborn sessions as early as the start of your second trimester. Why so early in the pregnancy? A few key reasons.

  • The elevated risks of first trimester are gone and you’re beginning to really plan for baby’s arrival
  • Newborn sessions are limited per month to allow each and every client to receive the luxury experience we guarantee.
  • Plenty of time to plan for every detail, big and small.

We know how much work is required to prepare for a baby. The last thing we want, as your newborn photographers, is to add more to your plate. Our studio will walk you through every step of the process, guaranteeing an easy and fun portrait experience.

How old should baby be?

While we suggest reserving portraits as early as possible, we understand little ones will arrive when they are ready. We suggest the session take place between 7-14 days old, but do not have a hard and fast rule!

During the first couple of weeks of life, babies are at their sleepiest and most flexible, all curled up. They are more likely to sleep through the entire session while being posed.

But what if you need more time to recover or baby is already here? That’s not a problem. We understand that life happens and love to get open eyes during sessions, too! Our team of professional photographers has experience with all ages.

If you have any questions about when to reserve your newborn photos, our studio is always happy to help.
