FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When should I book my newborn or maternity session?
Newborns are best photographed between 5-15 days of age, so preferably a few months before you are due. However, if your little one has arrived, don’t hesitate to contact me as I often keep a few spots up my sleeve. If your little one arrives early, let me know and we will reschedule.
Maternity sessions are held when you are around 32-34 weeks so book in as early as possible.
