Book your newborn session during your pregnancy

Having your newborn photographed by a professional newborn photographer in Maryland is the “in” thing! Did you know that for many years the preferred age for babies to be photographed was three months and your baby’s newborn photography session was said to be the photos you got while you were in the hospital? Things have definitely improved these days! Now your baby’s hospital photo is just known as “their hospital photo”. Newborn photography has taken over and you don’t want to miss out!

During your baby’s first week of life, you and your growing family will be going through lots and lots of adjustments and will no doubt be tired. But this is a great time to have your baby professionally photographed by a Maryland newborn photographer. There is nothing quite like the first few weeks of your baby’s life. It is so special and your child will never again change so quickly, details and qualities disappearing in the blink of an eye. Literally, you will look back at a picture that you took last week and see the changes.

Many people do not realize that your newborn photography session is booked during your pregnancy and is secured by your due date. I know that not all babies arrive on their actual due date, and that’s okay. I only book two due dates per week to allow flexibility in my schedule. Some babies arrive weeks early and days late. If your due date is secure on my calendar I will have room for you. Once your baby arrives we will set a firm day and time for your session while your baby is less than two weeks. Why under two weeks you may ask? Within the first two weeks of being born, most babies tend to be in a much deeper and longer sleep than a baby that is older than two weeks. In the early stages they keep that fetal position and go into the newborn poses that you see on my website more smoothly. Sure they may have peeling skin and their umbilical cord is still attached, but that’s what shows they’re so new, but this time will pass you by and you will want to remember this precious newborn stage forever.

I have developed a great passion for newborn photography. I enjoy getting to meet new families and I love having that wonderful relationship between my clients and watching these little ones grow up. Most of my clients choose my baby’s first year package which includes three sessions throughout your baby’s first year… newborn, sitting milestone, and standing milestone. I love working and connecting with the babies throughout their first year. It really is a special time that you deserve and never want to forget. Capture it all while the days are so new and never look back with regrets.

I had the pleasure of photographing sweet baby Luke about two months ago. He was super sweet and I really enjoyed our session. I am so glad that I was able to capture memories for his family that will be cherished forever. Contact me today and let me do the same for you.
