When to Photograph Newborn Portraits

kansas city newborn photos with dog

If you’re a parent you know how seems to *fly* with a newborn. The days can feel long, but also so incredibly short at the same time.

Clients always ask when we typically like to document newborn sessions. For us, that goal is 3 weeks or younger. That way they are still tiny and new, allowing us to capture all of the little details. Your baby grows and changes so fast – by the time they are 8 weeks old they often look different and are much more alert (which makes the sleepy photos trickier).

It’s hard to imagine getting yourself to a photo session so soon after giving birth, which is why we take all of the stress out to make it as easy as possible. You can roll up to Overland Park studio in your messy bun and leggings, and we will get you styled and glammed for photos in no time! We’re fully stocked with coffee, snacks, diapers, wipes, pacifiers… the list goes on!

We are currently booking due dates through November 2024, with limited availability for spring and summer. Reach out with any questions or booking details.
