Booking a photographer to capture the baby’s newborn stage is in the to-do list for many expecting parents. But not all the parents think it needs to be done way in advance before they even deliver the baby. We often get last minute inquiries asking our availability for their newborn baby. It is almost quite late to book a newborn session after your baby arrives because we are full with booked-in-advance clients. So why book a newborn photography session before your baby arrives?
This is something a lot of new parents ask: How can I even book a session when I don’t even know when the baby is going to arrive? My baby could arrive early or late. That is true. Unless you will have a scheduled c-section, you won’t know exactly when your baby will arrive.
This is how our system works to make sure we photograph newborn babies in time for all our booked clients. We take a certain number of due dates per week – 4~5, maximum 6 due dates per week. We mark our clients’ due dates in our calendar. Once the baby arrives, we schedule the session in. We want to make sure our clients can bring their baby in for the best time to photograph their babies. We are also flexible for booked clients. Some clients might need a few more days due to the delivery complication. Some babies might need a few more days before their first photo session due to jaundice, for example. We prioritize our booked clients. Occasionally we have openings. But why would you take a chance if it is something you really want? Why won’t you book in advance so you don’t get disappointed to find out we are not available to photograph your baby and have to research for other photographers even though you really like our style. And it seems we have shortage of newborn photographers in town as a lot of us get booked up in advance.
This client booked her baby’s newborn session about 4 months prior to her due date. Having these precious images of her newborn baby when she is really really tiny is going to be something she will appreciate for years to come. So why wait if you are expecting? We have only 2 spots left for July. We have only 6 spots left for August due date. We recently received a booking with due date on December 24th – one very important item in the to-do list checked off. So make sure this item is checked off from your to-do list, too.
