There are so many things you are thinking about and planning for as you prepare to welcome your baby into the world. It can be which type of car seat to purchase, where will the baby sleep and what kind of diapers do we consider? You may also be considering if you would like to do a newborn session. 

One question that I am asked time and time again is “when should I book my baby’s newborn session?” I prefer to schedule newborn sessions for when the baby is 7-14 days old. This allows new parents a few days at home to adjust and to catch those really sleepy newborn days of the baby. Those first few days of welcoming a baby are so special. A newborn session will help you remember those very special moments you shared together and the feeling you had with your new little one. 

I recommend booking a newborn session in the beginning of the third trimester. This gives you time to consider potential clothing choices for your session and eliminates one more task once the baby arrives. While the exact date of the baby’s arrival is often unknown, unless there is a planned cesarean, I suggest to pencil in a date. If the baby arrives early or late, I just ask to be emailed as soon as possible to adjust the date. 

Personally I can tell you, a newborn session is an experience you won’t regret. I love looking back at our daughter’s newborn session and taking in all the details. Even as we were sleepy and adjusting to the newborn days, it is one investment I will never regret. Just as so many people say, your baby grows and changes so fast! Capturing those moments are so special!
