You can't compare newborn sessions to any other. There are so many elements that go into making a newborn session amazing.
The first is when to book the session. The answer to that is as soon you have a due date. Really! The optimal time to get those beautiful "sleeping baby" images with super cute poses is at 7-10 days. Beyond that time frame, babies start to wake up more and won't be in a deep enough sleep for some poses. It's best to let me pencil you in and we can later put your baby's session down in pen after he/she is born. You can give someone the simple instruction of "text the photographer" and we will be on!
Next is time. I like to allow PLENTY of time for a newborn session, like 3 hours. This keeps a calm environment for baby, parent(s), any anyone else that may be a part of the session experience. Baby may need to eat or have a diaper change and that amount of session time will allow for any of that to keep a content baby for gorgeous images.
Last is location. My favorite place to capture a newborn session is right in their own home. I think it's the perfect opportunity for a lifestyle session. Babies tend to be more comfortable in their own environment, plus I get to capture their super cute nursery as part of the session. Of course, this is not always possible and I have studio space available if needed.
That, of course, is just the beginning. There is a lot of behind the scenes editing for perfect skin tones as well as compositing images for some of those poses that leave you wondering how they were done (those are the ones that can only be done with a 7-10 day old baby).
