I can officially add the title of Wendell newborn photographer to my resume after this session! While this wasn’t the first newborn session I’ve photographed for this family, it was the first one I’ve photographed in their new home in Wendell.
Their oldest daughter was born a couple of years ago when they still lived in Raleigh. Photographing her newborn session was such a joy. Suffice it to say I was thrilled when the Brunks invited me back to their home to document the addition of their son!
One of the most frequently asked questions I get is, “how do you go about scheduling newborn sessions?”. When you book your newborn photo session with me, I use your due date as a placeholder on my calendar.
From there, I ask that you let me know within 48 hours of baby’s birth. This is when we choose a date and time for your newborn session, ideally within the first three weeks of baby’s life.
When you choose a date, my recommendation is always to go with one of the earliest dates I offer you. You never know when a reschedule may be necessary, and I always want to avoid pushing into that fourth week of life if we can.
For instance, Grayson’s newborn session was supposed to happen the week prior, but we had to push it due to some minor health issues.
And even though your session is in your home, the weather is a factor that may come into play. While I won’t reschedule for a cloudy day, I will reschedule for rain.
All of this to say, when you schedule for an earlier date, there’s a better likelihood that we’ll still make your session happen within the first three weeks of baby’s life no matter what happens!
