When should I schedule a newborn session? Prebooking for your due date is best. We will adjust the date as needed as babies are unpredictable. Prebooking allows us to reserve a time frame before and after your due date to ensure we see a baby within the first 3 weeks after birth.  Cindy has limited newborn session’s a month which allows her to give every client the best service. We recommend clients book early to reserve their session and avoid disappointment.  Late bookings may be accommodated according to scheduling availability but not guaranteed.


How old should the baby be for the session? A newborn session can be seen as early as 7 days or as late as 5 weeks. Ideally, we want to capture newborns within the first 2 weeks of birth.


Do I need to provide anything for the session? No, parents may provide props if they wish. Many families include traditional or heirloom items for their session to be photographed with the baby.
