You are looking to book a newborn session for your baby. How do you pick? How do you book your session? How old should your baby be? Do you need all of the props? Here are the top questions I get about booking a newborn photographer Katy

Let me help you by answering the top questions I get as a newborn photographer in Katy.

  • How old should my baby be for their newborn session?
  • Can I bring my other kids and do family images as well?
  • Do you have a studio or shoot in the clients home?

*When should you book your newborn session? Every photographer is different for this, but ideally you should book during your first or second trimester. This makes sure the photographer has your due date available! Most photographers only book a certain amount of newborns a month, make sure you are in there!

*What age should your baby be for their newborn session? Newborns should be between age 5-14 days old for their newborn session. Why? Because this is the time frame where they are the most sleepy and posable. They are still used to being inside your stomach, so they fold up really well. After two weeks, most babies start being alert and having more wake times

*Can I bring my other kids and do family images as well? Every photographer is different, so make sure you ask this question. For me, the price is exactly the same whether you photograph just your newborn or if you include your whole family. I even provide hair and makeup for mom at no additional cost.

*Do you have a studio or shoot in the clients home? I have an in home studio where I shoot all of my newborn sessions. I do travel to clients home upon request for an additional travel fee. Why? It takes over an hour just to load the car with all of the equipment and props! Whew!

*Do you provide all of the outfits and props or do I need to bring them? I provide all of the newborn props for my sessions. I have bonnets for boys and girls, rompers, outfits, bows, crates, bowls, wreaths, tiny baby beds, and more! I even have the gowns and dresses for momma and sister!

*Are you trained on photographing newborns? Are you new? This is a good question to ask! If you have a low budget, you’ll have to use someone that is just starting out. But you want to make sure that they know how to handle newborn babies! You do not want to just hand your precious newborn over to anyone. I am not new, I have been photographing newborns since 2015. I am trained by other photographers to pose and handle newborns in a safe way.

Take this pose for example. If a new photographer saw this, they would think the baby is sitting up unsupported. That is not the case. The baby is in a little hole in the rug and the baby has a little neck brace support under the wrap. Additionally by hand is right outside the frame just in case he were to startle. This is safe if shot properly, but can be VERY unsafe if not done correctly.

*How long does a newborn session typically last? My sessions average around 2.5-3 hours long. This includes family and sibling portraits. I do not time my sessions. Meaning, if your little one takes longer (due to feeding or needing additional time being settled) then we will simply take longer. I will never cut your session time off.

*What if my baby needs to nurse or feed during the session? I can guarantee you that they will! Most babies need to break the session up and nurse or feed for a bit. That is totally fine. If someone tries to push through your newborn session and not feed your baby, they are more worried about their time and not your baby. Do not let that happen! Your baby calls the cues.

*Do you have a time limit on your sessions? This is a great question to ask your photographer. Most newborns take around 2.5-3 hours long, but some of mine have taken up to 5 hours! On the other hand I have had some done in just an hour. I do not time my sessions because I do not know how your baby will be during the session. I do not want you or your little one stressed out. Make sure you ask your photographer this! What happens if my baby cries and we cannot get the shots within your time frame? They need to have a back up plan for you.

*What is the latest age for newborn pictures? I have photographed newborns up to 3 months old. This is not ideal, but it is possible. A photographer should never turn you away because your baby is to old. The session will last a lot longer, simply because it is harder to get them asleep between each pose. But it is not impossible!

Momma loved the digital composites in my newborn session consultation. I made sure to include a couple of them for her to choose from. This one with this sweet baby boy sleeping in a wreath is my favorite! Digital art is such an amazing way to display your baby’s newborn portraits on your wall.

Here is another favorite of moms. He looks so peaceful in this composite. This one is going to look amazing displayed in their home. This is a newborn picture that her visitors are going to oooh and ahhh at! Which is your favorite?

I love when moms decide to be included in the session. How often are we the one’s left taking all of the pictures of our babies and we are not in them? It’s so important to get in the portraits! Our babies are going to want to see pictures of them little with their mommy!

I know looking back at my newborn baby pictures, there are not many with my mom. I would give anything to be able to see one of her with me as a newborn. It’s such a special time for baby and for mom. Let me capture it!

Little Hunter came to studio at a little over a week old. He did so well for his session! We got a great mixture of sleepy, squishy shots, as well as some awake shots. Of course I had to include hunter green in his set up!

Mom loved both the black and white and the color of this one. There is something about the black and white that just draws me in.

Look at that face! I cannot handle it. That little foot, those fingers, and that expression! I love this one so much. Mom got this one in a wood block for his nursery. Awake shots are always some of my favorites. Their little personalities peek out.

Mom told me that she loved the bucket shots during our consultation. So I got a couple different poses on the bucket for her! Look at those little fingers.

Bow by https://www.etsy.com/shop/LuckyCrickets

Miss Aubree was a doll during her newborn portrait session with MJ’s Photography. She was so full of  beautiful smiles. Aubree had a head full of dark hair and the sweetest little dimple every time that she would smile. Her family traveled a couple of hours for her newborn session and I am so glad they did!

She rocked her “potato sack” pose. (seen above) That pose is just my favorite because it lets you see their little faces in all their glory!

Big sister Ansley is such a happy and easy-going toddler. She was full of smiles, laughter, and fun. She adores her baby sister and was very eager to hold her for some sibling photos. Sibling photos are not always quite this easy with young toddlers.

We did some family photos before we started Aubree’s newborn session. We were tucked away in the shade in a nice little field. Newborn photographer Cypress, The woodlands newborn photographer

Such a gorgeous family with two beautiful girls!

After we did some outdoor family portraits, we moved inside for some sibling photos as well as Aubree’s newborn portraits. Ansley and Aubree did so well! I just adore this sweet moment.Fulshear newborn photographer

Aubree went into each pose and even smiled for quite a few. Doesn’t she look perfect in this mustard bow?

I first met the Beck family when their oldest baby girl was just 8 months old! Mommy booked a “Mommy and Me ” portrait session and they turned out beautiful! She is now almost two and they have welcomed baby Brayden into their family! I just love getting to photograph family’s as they grow.

How perfect does he look as a squishy little bear at his newborn session? He was knocked out at this point in his newborn session, he didn’t even make a peep! I can’t even handle it! (Don’t worry this is a composite, he was very safe during the entire shot)  (Hat made by Handmade by Lori)

He was born a couple days after Independence day, so a patriotic setup was necessary! Mommy came prepared with the red, white, and blue stars and baby Brayden allowed me to pose him up in just the sweetest little curl.

Sugar land best newborn photographer Sugar land best newborn photographer

He was so sweet during his newborn session. I was so excited to put him into one of my new little boy outfits from Kissing Frog. It fit him perfectly! And just look at those gorgeous little eyelashes! <3

Look at those little bitty feet! Baby feet and baby toes are oh so sweet. I just love this newborn pose because it shows off his little toes, little fingers, and of course his face!

Here are some more favorites from Brayden’s newborn portrait session. His lips and cheeks are just so squishy!
