Maternity & Baby

Schedule Session  4-6 Weeks Before

Maternity

You'll want to take your maternity photos when you're 7-8 months pregnant. Make sure to schedule your shoot 4-6 weeks beforehand to ensure that the dates you want are available.

Fresh 48

Fresh 48 shoots take place in the hospital or at home sometime in the first 48 hours after baby is born! If you are interested in birth photography or a Fresh 48 shoot please send me an email at photosbylydia@hotmail.com for details.

Newborn

The best time to capture your little bundle of joy is when they are between 5 and 10 days old, but no older than 2 weeks. We can pencil in a date close to your due date and keep in touch when they arrive to make adjustments if needed.

 

First Birthday

Plan to take baby's first birthday photos when they are about 10 months old if you are planning to order party invitations. This ensures that you have plenty of time to send out invitations before the big celebration.
