Adorable Newborn Twins Photography Session at Gregersen Photography

Photographing newborns is always a real treat! Photographing twin newborn babies? Oh goodness, that is twice the fun and cuteness and I LOVE photographing them. It’s always a fun day at the studio when we know two sweet babies are coming in for their newborn photography session. Here are some tips when considering a newborn session….one or multiple babies!

What to Consider When Planning Your Newborn Photography Session:

First Trimester: Start the processing of googling and asking about newborn photographers in your area.

Just start with a simple google search and you will see who the top newborn baby photographers are in your local area. Then check out their sites and see if you like their work. Is the quality good? Do you like their style? Do they appear to be active on social media and keeping current? Reach out to them and just start asking questions.

Word of Mouth marketing is always the best marketing tool for any small business and the same is for newborn photographers. When a family has a wonderful experience and has gorgeous photographs to show for it, they are going to be happy to share their photographer’s name and business with you. So check out your friend’s social media pages that just had babies, or just start asking around and see if you have friends and acquaintances that have used the same photographer.

 

 

Second Trimester: Ultrasound and Heartbeat! 

There is nothing like having that first ultrasound and hearing your sweet baby’s heartbeat going strong! We have found that most moms reach out to us after that 20 week ultrasound when they know all is good with baby and may even know the gender! We love it when moms reach out to book us at this stage because we have time to talk about a maternity session as well and make sure that is scheduled enough in advance so we do not have to worry about getting to close to the due date.

Also, most photographers request a session fee or deposit to hold dates, so this way you can pay it now, and not have an extra payment due right at the newborn session.

One last thing about this time frame, is that the good photographers book out fast and far. You may think you have time, but remember that newborn photographers do not and can not schedule to many sessions a week because our schedules have to be flexible to babies….they come when they want to and we need to leave enough time to be able to reschedule if baby comes early or later than the due date. There are a lot of newborn photographers out there, but if you found one you love, don’t wait to long and then be disappointed when they sadly can not fit you in. Most photographers will schedule the newborn photography session one week after the due date.

Third Trimester: Getting Ready!

At this point in the pregnancy you are feeling big and probably overwhelmed. We all think you are as cute as can be as we watch you grow that sweet baby! As you are thinking about your newborn photography session, reach out to the photographer and just make sure all is good, and let them know how you are doing…..are you tracking to go early? Any signs or complications that the photographer may need to know about?

Have you thought about what you would like for your newborn session?

If you have any fun props or ideas about the newborn photography session that you would like to bring and have incorporated into the photographs……please let them know. We love to have parents bring some fun props or even help them set up a whole scene that makes it unique to them…such is true wit the two images above. Dad is an avid fisherman and wanted to incorporate his love of fishing into the newborn photography session.

What happens if my baby or babies come early?

Being a newborn photographer for as long as I have, I know that babies come when they want. Especially with twins and multiples, we know that we have to be flexible. The most important thing you can do is just get on our calendar and then we will guarantee your session will happen no matter when your baby comes. We have had babies come really early and need to stay in the NICU for extended stays and that changes all plans….for you as the parents and me as the photographer. I will happily hold your spot when your little one is out of the hospital, safe and ready to be photographed.

If you would like to chat more about newborn photography, please reach out to us! We would be thrilled to talk to you more to set up your special newborn photography session. ✨🤍✨
