Sessions are a breeze to reserve for your newborn. Some parents will reserve a spot well ahead of time, in the second trimester. I totally understand that this is a new and busy time for expecting moms and not all arrange a spot ahead of time. I do try to leave some openings for last minute sessions but that’s not always possible. Just like any business there are some slow weeks and then there are crazy busy weeks. I’ve had to turn away moms in those really busy weeks so to avoid disappointment be sure to send a quick email ahead of time and we can get your little one on the reserved list. I know that babies come on their own timeline so I don’t schedule anything up front (unless you have a predetermined c-section date). What I do is take on a limited number of reservations based on baby’s due date and we schedule once baby is born. Some moms go early and some go late so it usually all evens out 🙂 I do take a small retainer to secure your spot and this will be taken off of the balance of your newborn session which is due on the day of your session. It’s one thing that you can check off of your to do list early 🙂 Who doesn’t want squishy gorgeous images of their little one in those first early weeks.
