Otsego, Michigan Photographer | Becky Martin Photography | When should I book a newborn session?

Today I'm excited to share some newborn photos with you of a recent session I did! If you're wondering when you should book your newborn session, here are some FAQ's When should I book my newborn session? -The answer is "The sooner the better"! I always book newborn session based off the baby's due date, but with a lot of flexibility should the baby come early or decide to take his/her time! However, if you want to wait until baby is born to book photos, I may not have availability! So let's communicate about that :)

Will I be in the photos? -YES! If you would like to do a family photo or include siblings, I'm all about that :) I try to get a variety and work quickly so the process isn't overwhelming. I capture these moments in the beginning typically so it does help if Dad or Grandma can drive separately to take the kiddos home or to a park while I photograph your sweet baby solo. What should I bring?

-I have everything we will need for your baby's photos, but if you have questions or something sentimental you'd like to incorporate, I'm in! Just communicate that with me :)

Should I feed baby beforehand? - I would say to feed your baby prior to coming or top them off in the studio to make sure that we have a happy and satisfied baby! I. DO. NOT.RUSH. newborn sessions and I follow baby's lead so if we need to pause and feed them half way through, then we do!

How long does a session last?

-That really depends on how well baby does with posing and being sleepy! I've had a newborn session finished in 1 hour and I've had some last 3, If I feel like your baby isn't going to settle, meaning I won't get the photos you love and want, then we may reschedule and try a different day that week to get them back when they're happier.

When will I see the photos? -At the end of your session we will set a date for your REVEAL SESSION! These are SO MUCH FUN! This is where I show you all the beautiful images that I've edited of your little one/family and you will choose which photos you'd like to purchase! When should I book my next session? -If you want to capture all those fun milestones, we can set up the next few sessions anytime you're ready! Hope these are helpful! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask! -Becky
