How to Make Your Newborn Session a Smashing Success!

Booking & Planning

As soon as baby comes, it's non-stop late nights and hard work for Mom and Dad. Coordinating a photo session seems like the last thing on your list of priorities. This is why we recommend booking your session at least 2-4 months in advance of your due date to make sure everything is lined up ahead of time and you don't have to worry! Once your little bundle of joy arrives, please contact Sarah Ware Photography to let us know the news. We will work closely with you or a family member to find a day and time that works for everyone. Newborns are best photographed under 2 weeks of age; the ideal timing before 9 days.

The Day Before

Don’t schedule vaccinations  the day before your session! Tire baby out with stimulating activities so she will want to sleep the next day.

 Sweet sleeping babies are so much fun to photograph!

The Day Of 

Keep baby awake at least 90 min. prior to the session. Feed baby until she is 
completely full. Ensure the diaper or any clothing isn’t strapped on too tightly to avoid red marks. Clothe baby in something easy to slip on and off without causing disturbance. 

 Feel free to bring any of your own special blankets or stuffed animals!

Newborn sessions take place in the Grapevine Studio. We will allow for any breaks, feedings, clothing changes and whatever is needed in order to ensure that your session creates the best possible photos. Sessions will last anywhere from 1-2 hours and are scheduled Monday - Saturday starting at 8:30am.  The photographer provides all props, multiple settings & backgrounds to give you a variety of images to choose from. You may bring your own props, stuffed animals and blankets as well. Each session comes with a  20-30 edited images delivered through an online gallery for downloading and professional ordering along with a print release. Each session comes with a Bump Mini Session and a  Six Month Mini Session, these can be taken on location or in studio.  Half of your total is due as your retainer and the other half is due the day before your session. Turnaround time with editing is 7-10 days.
