When Should I schedule?

Please schedule early as you're comfortable, but know that once each month is booked, I can't take on any more clients, so the sooner the better!

Once you contact me, sign the contract, and pay the deposit, you will be "soft booked". I only take on a certain number of newborns each month, so that will reserve your spot for the month until I have reached my maximum number of newborn bookings. 

You will need to stay in touch with me towards the end of the pregnancy and let me know how your appointments are going and if your doctor is giving you any indication of when baby will be arriving! Once baby is here, PLEASE let me know and we'll pick the soonest weekend morning to do the photo shoot!

When + where does the newborn session take place?

Newborn sessions are best done within the first two weeks of baby's life. Newborn sessions can be done later, but your baby will not sleep as easily through the posing; in generally will be more alert and less sleepy, will not want to curl up as much, and may have baby acne. 

All newborn sessions take place in Lauren McCormick Photography studio. I prep the studio the night before laying out all the props and outfits; the morning of I turn the heater on to get the studio nice and warm, to recreate the womb; besides all the beautiful hand my props, I also have backdrops, backdrop stands, wood panels, a huge posing pillow and stand. My studio is ready to go for your little one!

Session fees are the cost for my time and talent to take the images and hand edit every image. The average client spends between $1,000-$2000 including the session fee.
