Frequently Asked Newborn Photo Questions

Ashley Newman Photography

I am often asked questions when leading up to booking for a newborn session. I love getting to chat with clients prior to booking because it helps me to know if we are going to be a good fit but it also helps prepare you for the types of sessions I do. My approach to newborn photography is much more natural and organic (so no posing your baby on a bean bag). I have a focus on your connections and relationships as a family, plus all the tiny details of the day. If you are considering a lifestyle newborn session, check out my post on in-home newborns to find out if your house is right for these types of photos.

  • What is lifestyle photography? It’s the heartbeat of your family! It’s all about capturing images that reveal a story. It’s candid yet directed and posed at the same time. But mostly, it’s emotive photography that focuses on relationships and family.

  • I’m super awkward/nervous/never in front of the camera. Help! Don’t worry! That’s part of my job! I’m here for you every step of the way. From planning and styling your sessions to posing and guidance. I got your back!

  • How do I book? That’s the easy part! All I require is a retainer fee to hold your date.

  • Where do we take the pictures? I have spent years finding and securing private locations as well as scoping out the best public spaces. Once you are booked, I will share all my locations with you and help you pick the one that best fits your vision for your session. I also offer studio options like the awesome one you see in the post! 🙂 So if your house won’t work for newborns or you don’t want to use it, don’t fret!

  • How long until I get my pictures? The big reveal- right? It’s my favorite too! You will get a sneak peek of your photos 1-2 weeks after your session and your final gallery in 3-4 weeks.

  • How early should we reserve a date? It’s best to book when you are absolutely comfortable and ready. Most families book around between 20-30 weeks, but some book as soon as they know! I am generally booked out about a month in advance and reserve a date around your due date.
