As a newborn photographer, I often receive questions from parents who are considering booking a newborn photoshoot but have concerns or uncertainties about the process. In this blog post, I’ll address some of the most common questions about newborn photography to help alleviate any worries and provide clarity for prospective clients.

Jessica Lee Photography | Common Questions about Newborn Photography

Q: When is the best time to schedule a newborn photoshoot?

A: The ideal time to schedule a newborn photoshoot is within the first two weeks after birth. During this time, newborns are typically sleepier, more flexible, and easier to pose, resulting in those adorable curled-up poses that parents love. It’s important to book your session in advance to secure a spot during this optimal window.

Q: How long does a newborn photoshoot typically last?

A: Newborn photoshoots can vary in duration depending on several factors, including the baby’s temperament, feeding and comforting breaks, and the complexity of the poses and setups. On average, a newborn photoshoot may last anywhere from 1-2 hours to ensure enough time for feeding, soothing, and capturing a variety of beautiful images.

Q: Do we need to bring our own props and outfits for the photoshoot?

A: While I provide a variety of props, wraps, and accessories for your newborn photoshoot, you’re welcome to bring any special items you’d like to incorporate into the session. This could include sentimental items such as blankets, toys, or clothing with personal significance to your family. I’m happy to discuss your preferences and incorporate them into the session as much as possible.

Q: How do you ensure the safety of our baby during the photoshoot?

A: Safety is my top priority during every newborn photoshoot. I have undergone specialized training in newborn posing and safety techniques to ensure that your baby is handled with the utmost care and gentleness. I use safe and supportive posing methods, always keeping your baby’s comfort and well-being in mind. Additionally, I maintain a clean and sanitized studio environment to minimize any risks.

Q: Can family members be included in the photoshoot?

A: Absolutely! I encourage parents and siblings to participate in the photoshoot to capture the beautiful bond between family members. Family portraits with your newborn are a wonderful way to document this special time in your lives and create cherished memories to treasure for years to come.

Depending on the package you’ve chosen, you can expect to receive your fully edited photos within 3 to 4 weeks after the session. I’ll keep you informed throughout the editing process and notify you as soon as your gallery is ready for viewing and downloading.
