When should we schedule our newborn portraits?
The best time to get your newborn’s portraits taken is within the first two weeks. During that time, babies still sleep a lot, are malleable enough to position any way you choose, and usually haven’t yet gotten newborn acne or cradle cap.
Newborn portraits take place in the home to eliminate taking the newborn out of the comfort of their home, and usually take about an hour. It is important to keep the session calm and relaxed, as well as allowing time for feedings and diaper changes.
It’s a good idea to make contact before the due date to discuss the portrait session. Then once the baby is born, all that’s needed is to make quick contact to find a date and time.
