As soon as baby comes, It is non stop late nights and hard work for Mum and Dad. Coordinating a photo session seems like the last thing on your list of priorities. This is why we recommend booking your session 2-3 months in advance and your due date to make sure everything is lined up ahead of time and you don’t have to worry!
Since your baby’s due date is just a estimate and baby will come when she/he is ready I mark you down in the studio between 5-7 days after your due date. Once your little bundle of joy arrives, Please contact us here at Alexandra Creative Photography within 2 days to let us know the news via call,text, email. I will work closely with you or a family member to find a day that suits all. Newborns are best photographed between 5-14 days of age while they are still super sleepy bendy and tiny.
Is your little one here or over two weeks old? No worries! I feel everyone should have the chance to have their little one please get in touch and see what works best for you and your baby, Although they may not sleep as well as a week old baby, I work hard to get beautiful images of newborns of all ages.
With 5 years experience of photography and focusing on newborn photography for the last two years newborn safety is of the upmost importance to me. There are some images that are composites and I can talk through them and I will show you how 2 or even 4 images can fit together to make the perfect composite and to keep baby completely safe.
Those first few weeks of your baby’s life pass by in a blur, and you will never have those precious moments again. A newborn portrait session is the perfect way to capture the sweet innocence, delicate features, and angelic expressions that fill your heart with joy. A newborn marks a fresh chapter in the life of a family. Preserving this special time with artistic newborn photography is truly an act of love.

Q: What do I need to bring to my session?
A: Just your family and food for baby! The studio has all the props, wraps, headbands, and hats, that I will need. If you have a special heirloom you want to bring, that is perfectly fine.
Q: Can my husband and kids be in the pictures?
A: Absolutely! Having siblings and parents in the photos is important. These are precious memories we are recording and the whole family is welcome to be a part of it.
Q: When should I reserve my newborn session?
A: The sooner the better! However, I recommend by your 36th week. I will schedule the session about 7/10 days past your due date and adjust the date, if necessary, depending on when your baby arrives.
Q: How long is a newborn session?
A: Plan for the session to last 2 hours. If parents and siblings are being included, plan on 3 hours.
Q: How old should my baby be for newborn portraits?
A: I recommend babies be photographed 5-14 days old. If your baby has passed this age, I do happily accept older newborns as well.
