Booking a Bristol newborn photographer

If you’re expecting your first baby, you may not realise how little time you’re about to have after the birth.

Making an appointment for a photographer prior to the due date really does give you some peace of mind. Once you have booked your Bristol newborn photographer, you can concentrate on other things, like enjoying time with your newborn baby.

Many new mums wonder when the best time is for photographing their newborn baby. Most Bristol newborn photographers recommend capturing the baby within the first 2 weeks after birth.  This is because Newborn babies tend to be more sleepy in these 2 weeks. Your baby is also more likely to be curled up how they were positioned in the womb. If you miss this time frame, please don’t worry as many Bristol newborn photographer take newborns up to 14 weeks old.

Your Bristol newborn photographer is likely to  schedule a provisional date one week after your due date. Confirmation of a set photo shoot time happens once your baby arrives.

Taking that first professional family photo

Within the first two weeks after your newborn babies birth, your partner is more likely to be on paternity leave. This makes scheduling a newborn session so much easier, an even more importantly your partner will be there for the first family photographs.

We would advise you to book in advance for a date within these 2 weeks of paternity leave.
