Newborn Session faq

When is the best time to photograph my newborn?

The best time to photograph your newborn depends on what kind of session that you are seeking. Posed newborn sessions (the cute sleepy baby poses in props that you see in our newborn gallery) are best taken when newborns are 5-14 days old. Newborns typically still spend most of their time sleeping during this age. After two weeks of age, babies are a little harder to settle, and it becomes more difficult to position them into those sleepy, curly poses. Lifestyle sessions do not involve positioning your newborn in certain poses and can take place at any time within the first 2 months after baby's arrival.



When should I schedule my newborn session?
The best time to book your session is as soon as you have a due date. After baby’s arrival, I can then tweak the date if needed to ensure the session takes place during the ideal timeframe for your selected session.



Where will my newborn session be held?

Newborn sessions can take place in the comfort of your own home or within Bundles Photography's studio in downtown Parkville.

Do you provide backdrops and props?

Yes! If you choose a posed newborn collection, I will provide all fabric, swaddles, and props. I even have cute little headbands for girls and sleepy hats for boys that I bring. Upon booking a newborn session, you will be provided a questionnaire to design your newborn setups. It's so much fun being able to design the look of your little one's photoshoot! If you have a special item of your own that you wish to include, I will be more than happy to incorporate it into your session.



Do you include photos with parents and siblings?

Yes! Most of our newborn collections include photos with parents and siblings.



If I choose to be photographed, what do I wear?

Neutral toned clothing is best. I recommend avoiding bright colors and busy or big patterns and logos. This can divert focus away from your newborn and your family. Brightly colored clothing can also reflect unflattering colors to the skin. If you choose to have photos taken in the studio, it is filled with earthy and neutral tones: whites, creams, tans, browns, greens). If you are having photos taken within your home, consider the color palette of your home. Plan to wear tones that best compliment the area of the home that you'd like to be photographed in. I recommend casual clothing for in-home sessions to compliment the warm and natural environment.
