I often get asked, "When is the best time to book a newborn photo shoot?" and I always say "The sooner the better."
Most newborn photographers book by due date and because we don't know the exact day that a baby will arrive, we limit the number of newborns booked that are due around the same time to ensure there is a spot for every newborn after they make their debut.
Nothing is worse than getting a request to do newborn photos after a baby has arrived and I don't have the availability to help. I absolutely hate turning parents away especially if they've expressed that they love my work. So, book early!
I recommend booking in your 2nd trimester and as an incentive, I offer a 100% free sitter mini studio milestone session that you can use between 6-10 months when baby is sitting up. It comes with 5-7 free digital images and there is no catch....it's totally free. It helps me to forecast my business, save on marketing costs and ensures you're date is safely locked in my calendar. Win, win, win...and everybody likes something free!
