When to book a newborn photography session?




Once your baby is born, you’ll have a lot on your mind, and selecting a newborn photographer might not be the first thing on your list.



I will add your estimated due date to my calendar and once your little one arrives we will schedule your newborn photography session within two weeks after birth.



I only book a few sessions a month so my calendar is very flexible. Even if the baby arrives before or after your due date we will find a date and time that work for both of us.

What if my baby is already born?

Babies from 2 weeks up to 6 weeks old are welcome considering a few things

Get ready to capture the cutest and most precious moments of your newborn! The best time to schedule a newborn photoshoot session is within the first two weeks after birth when your little one is still super sleepy and curly, and we can capture all those adorable poses you’ve been dreaming of. With my expert skills and creativity, we’ll create stunning images that will take your breath away.

But hey, even if your baby has already arrived, don’t panic! I’m always happy to accommodate last-minute openings and capture beautiful photos of your little one, even if they’re a bit older. We can still get some amazing awake and wrapped shots that you’ll treasure forever.

And the best part? I’ve got you covered with a complete set of props and accessories, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. And if you want to include some family shots, we’ll make sure to capture those at the beginning of the session.

Missed the newborn window? No problem at all! I also offer baby sessions for babies from 3 months old and up. Let’s create some more amazing memories together!

A custom photo shoot starts with a plan and I’d love to hear your ideas! During your in-person or online consultation, we will discuss all your goals and preferences for the photography session, colours, poses, wardrobe and how you can display your portraits in your home.

My goal is to capture exactly what YOU love.

The Photoshoot

Relax and have fun! After our pre-consultation, I have everything that I need to create the session of your dreams. When you arrive for the newborn  photo shoot, parents’ and siblings’ shots will be done first so everyone can relax while I finish the session with individual shots of the baby.

Baby will also have fussy moments, and that is just fine. You won’t be rushed through your photo session, and we will have plenty of time to cuddle, change, feed and relax your little one. A newborn photography session can take up to three hours and we will respect all needs of your baby.

How much editing do you do?

At Amanda Dams Photography, we believe in creating images that are as close to perfect as possible! That’s why every single photo we take receives special treatment.

When should I book my newborn photography session?

It is very important to schedule your photo session before the baby arrives! I will add your due date to my calendar and once your little one arrives we will schedule your newborn photography session between 5-14 days.

My baby is already born. Is it too late to schedule a newborn photography session?

No! While I generally book newborn photo sessions many months in advance, I sometimes have last-minute openings. I recommend that newborn photo sessions take place within the first two weeks of life, but I am always happy to photograph older newborns with the understanding that it may not be possible to achieve the type of images that work with a very young newborn.

What should I bring?

Diapers, wipes and milk. I provide everything else for the baby like wraps, blankets, props and accessories. 

What should I wear?

We will choose your outfits together during our in-home consultation, prior to the session.

What products do you offer?

Get ready to be blown away by the true treasure of your portrait session – custom portraits that will make your home absolutely shine! With so many options to choose from, including albums, print boxes, canvases, and fine art prints, the possibilities are truly endless. And the best part?

How do I place an order?

Get ready for the ultimate personalized experience! During your View&Order appointment with me, which takes place just 1 or 2 weeks after your photo session, you’ll get to decide on the products and number of images that you absolutely love. It’s going to be a one-on-one meeting where we can really work together to bring your precious memories from your newborn photography session to life.
