The Best Time to Schedule a Newborn Photo Session

Every mother wants to capture as many photos of her new baby as she can and if you’re currently expecting, you’re probably wondering about the best time to schedule your newborn photo session.
The reality is that all parents have different preferences, with many not wanting to photograph their little one too soon. Others simply don’t have the time or energy to schedule in a photoshoot directly after birth.
Every shot of your newborn is special and this is a time that you’ll want to remember for years to come, so what are your options?

Understanding Your Newborn Photo Session Options

The First 48 Hours

The first few hours after your baby is born are very special and filled with ‘first moments’. If you want to capture your little one’s first bath or the moment they meet siblings or other members of the family, schedule your newborn shoot during the first 2 days. Usually these will be taken at the place of birth whether in the hospital or at home, you will be happy to capture these very special ‘firsts’.

The First Two Weeks

If you want time to find your feet as a new mom and you simply love how newborn babies look when they’re sleeping, schedule your shoot during the first two weeks after your baby is born. Your little one will still be very new to the world and will spend more time sleeping than anything else, which makes for beautiful photos.

One to Three Months

If capturing your baby’s personality is more important to you, wait a month or two before you schedule your session. During the first three months, your baby will become more alert, open their eyes and even smile. If this will be your first baby, you may only be feeling more relaxed after a month or two, which will make the shoot more pleasant for you.

Newborn photo sessions are very personal, so do what’s right for you and find a photographer that you feel comfortable with.

Davies’s Outdoor Family Session – Glendale, AZ

Glendale az family session

I wanted to take a quick second to tell you that I am seriously the luckiest photographer in the world. My clients are always so fabulous to work with. That’s true of my session with the Davies family, too!

I met up with them in November at Glendale Wash and the weather was perfect for photo-taking. While the weather was fine, it was the Davies family that made this shoot such a joy.

The Davies family consists of Dad, Roderick who loves deep sea fishing, Mom, April and she loves food art (aka cake decorating), oldest Emma loves to create art for others to enjoy, Kaitlyn plays any sport available, twin boys Roddy who is a master LEGO builder and Hudson loves music of all kinds and Baby Naomi is happy constantly.

“We love hiking at white tanks together, watching movies together and playing games together.,” says April.

As you can see from the comments above and the photos below, this family is not only photogenic, but also a close-knit group who clearly love spending time together. They are lucky to have each other.

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Gorman’s Studio Family Session – Peoria, AZ

Gorman's Studio Family Session

Hi, everyone!

Oh how I just adore the family I’m blogging about today. I’m lucky enough to say I’ve been photographing the Gorman family for 3 years now! I truly can’t believe how much the children have grown and changed since I first met them. They are also adding a little girl in a few short months which I cannot wait to meet!

Gormans-Family-Session-Peoria-Arizona-Ashley-Flug-Photography04.jpg

The Gorman’s are a very very blended family! They have a kid from almost every avenue of being able to receive a kid! Adoption, foster, step kids, half siblings, biological kids! You name it they got it! And they love how blended they are!!!

And as for the day of the shoot, it was rainy so we had to move their session indoors, but it went so perfect with their outfits that I am so happy that it turned out that way!

It goes without saying, Abigail and Josh have become my friends over the time we’ve worked together. It’s hard to not become friends with someone like Abigail, who is a rockstar mom and so easy to talk too. Dad and husband Josh is just as great and sure knows how to keep everyone laughing.

Gormans-Family-Session-Peoria-Arizona-Ashley-Flug-Photography06.jpg

Okay, enough text. Abigail and Josh, you are amazing parents and I cannot wait to meet your little girl!

Teagyn’s 10 month fruit bath sesssion ~ Buckeye, Arizona

Glad to see you again, photo lovers!

It feels like just yesterday I was crouched in front of adorable Teagyn snapping pictures like a maniac at her newborn session. I was really looking forward to seeing her again to see how she has changed over the past 9 months. And my, how she’s grown!

What a cutie patootie!

As you can see from the pictures, Teagyn rocked her fruit bath session. She clearly knows how to work the camera. Do we have a future model on our hands?

Luckily for me, I get to photograph Teagyn again in a couple of months for her cake smash session. I’m dying to see how much more she has changed between now and then!

Michelle’s Dreamy Desert Maternity Session ~ Waddell, Arizona

Desert maternity session

I’m still on a high from photographing Michelle, who’s 28 weeks pregnant with her little one and looking straight up gorgeous during her dreamy desert session! We headed over to the White Tank Mountains in Waddell, where we were able to utilize tons of natural light and a gorgeous backdrop of the desert. Needless to say, from the location to the clothing to the light and beyond, every element came together to make for some incredibly beautiful images.

I am all about those dresses – aren’t you? FLAW-LESS! You make my job easy, Michelle, and it was an absolute pleasure to hang out with you and photograph you during this sweet time of your life! I’m so excited for your little one to arrive!

Kenzi’s Spring Mini Session ~ Lake Pleasant in Peoria, Arizona

Peoria, Arizona Spring photos, timeless spring child photography in Peoria, Arizona, outdoor sprig mini session at beautiful lake pleasant

Hey guys!

Today I have a real treat for you, which comes in the form of Kenzi. You can tell from the pictures that she is a super kiddo.

We met up at Lake Pleasant, which I love because at the end of every session we get to have a little fun in the water which is perfect to keep cool on those hot summer days and not to mention, the kiddos love it! It is such a gorgeous location.

Kenzi likes to jump rope, play with friends, get her nails painted, and watch Netflix. She also enjoys going out to dinner with her parents!

Speaking of parents, Rachel did a really wonderful job choosing the perfect dress for her spring session. Okay, moving on to what you’ve been waiting for, photos of the beautiful Kenzi.

The Cooper’s Family Maternity Session ~ Glendale, Arizona

Family Maternity Photographer in Glendale Arizona

We all know that Mom and her baby are the stars of the show when it comes to a maternity session, but there’s no denying the sweetness of having the entire family in the frame, too. I love capturing the raw, candid moments between parents and siblings, and pressing pause on a moment in time that would otherwise go by so quickly and without preservation!

My shoot with Heather and the rest of her family – including Dad, and their 3 children, Mattix 13, Slade 8, Monroe 5 – offered lots of those moments. The session took place in February at a beautiful wash in Glendale, and it was a non-stop shutter clicking extravaganza!

Perry’s Extended Family Session ~ Tonopah, Arizona

Welcome back, guys and gals!

I recently had a stupendous session with the Perry Family. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I truly have the best clients ever! This family was no exception, either. The Perry’s kept me laughing during the entire session with funny jokes and the silly things they would say to each other. They are also so very sweet, they had some of the nicest things to say about me and my business, which made me blush.

We met at the Perry’s farm which I fell in love with!!!  I loved shooting there because their cotton was in full bloom and has gorgeous views. I was so excited to be able to photograph their family there.

For our shoot, the Perry’s brought out their old tractor.  I was able to work in their tractor, my vintage couch and the outfits they chose, which really made for some amazing photos.

Okay, on to pictures of the Perry family!
