I’ve noticed a trend when planning on-location session in October in the Syracuse NY region. Chances are the weather will be foul and cold, so you best have a back-up plan. Thankfully, we did. The original arrangement was an outdoor maternity shoot in late October at Fallbrook. After 3 attempts of working around 3 schedules and the weather, we resorted to waiting till the blessed babe arrived and shooting safely indoors after the New Year.

Miss Adelyn arrived in the very last days of December, making her my first newborn session of 2021. At 11 days new, she was so sweet, wrapped up in pink and obliged all my tucks and turns as I posed her in each position.

When booking your newborn photography session before birth, there is always a question of “When will we do it?” As an expectant mama, you may be planning on having your baby naturally with no predetermined date of when your baby will arrive. That leaves room for much uncertainly when booking your newborn session. But that is ok. When you book your newborn session with me, before your baby’s birth, I will add you to my calendar and will not overbook for the week that you are expecting. Within two days after giving birth (while resting in the hospital or at home) shoot me a message of your blessed arrival. From there, we will schedule a date for your newborn’s photography session. Newborns are best posed and photographed within 5- 14 days of birth, so it is crucial to have your newborn photographer booked well before your baby arrives.
