When should we contact you to book a newborn session?
It is best to schedule your newborn’s session several months before he/she is born. I take a limited number of sessions each month, and cannot guarantee an opening if I am not contacted in advance. Sessions book quickly each month, and it is possible that I may be booked up to two months in advance.
How will we know when to schedule our newborn session?
If you booked your session during your pregnancy, your due date is noted on the calendar, and I have a general idea of when the session will occur. Once your baby is born, contact me via phone or email, and we will then decide on a date and time for the session. The session will ideally take place when your baby is between 5-10 days of age.
Why so early?
The ideal age for your newborn’s session is between 5-10 days. This is a very important time frame as your baby will still be sleepy, flexible, and cooperative in order to achieve the portraiture that you know and love from Jennifer Rutledge Photography. It is preferred to schedule the session no later than 2 weeks of age, however, there are always exceptions. If in the event the session needs to take place after 2 weeks of age, I will still capture beautiful images of your little one!
Do I have to provide props for the session?
I have an assortment of props to choose from at the studio. If I come to your home for the PureBaby Lifestyle session, I will bring a few small props, but will mainly use your home as the backdrop for the session.
