Newborn Shoots...

I am still like 4 seconds pregnant at 6 weeks. But when do people book Newborn shoots typically, how much do they cost, and who is awesome?

Re: Newborn Shoots...

I would book as early possible to make sure you get the photographer you want.

Some things to consider when looking at photogs would be:

On-site or home location
Minimum package orders

I ended up going with Brilianna, but I was also looking at Melanie Beth. Both were within my price range of $400-$600.

Re: Newborn Shoots...

i think i booked both times about 5 months in advance just to ensure i got the person i wanted. I use Anne Hack for everything - newborn shoots, christmas photos, birthdays, etc. She's affordable and shes great with babies Chat Icon

This. I booked over 6 months out for my due date. I used Katie Burnett. She was amazing. Came to the house at no extra charge. Was here the whole day. Dd was a dream during the shoot thanks to Katie. Pics were amazing and prices were reasonable.

You should book around 12 weeks. Newborn shoots take longer to do -- sometimes up to 3 hours -- and so they book up much quicker than family photo shoots.

I'm using SummerLyn because we used her with DS#1 and I love her! She is $$$ because of her experience but I've been saving up because it's worth it. Her website lists her pricing.

I booked mine around 20W. The earlier the better.
