How old should my baby be for a newborn session?
Your baby will ideally be less than 2 weeks old. Gaby makes every effort to photograph newborns between days 5 and 10. During this window of time, babies are very sleepy, easily posed, less fussy, and have become accustomed to nursing. As newborns get older (10+ days), they tend to be more challenging to pose and settle, may develop baby acne, and have longer wake periods. For these reasons, it’s absolutely essential that the newborn session be scheduled early.
If, however, you have an older newborn, please reach out. Gaby regularly photographs older babies and she would be happy to accommodate last-minute bookings whenever her schedule permits.
When should I book a newborn session?
Please book your newborn portrait session before your baby is born whenever possible. Most families reserve their due dates during their second trimester or early in their third. This ensures that space is allotted in Gaby’s calendar to photograph your baby during the ideal age (between 5 and 10 days old).
Gaby understands that your due date is only an estimate. She will reserve time on and around your due date, ensuring you have a spot in her schedule. Upon your baby’s arrival, you or someone you trust will contact Gaby to arrange your actual session date.
*To give each client the best service possible, Gaby books a limited number of portrait sessions per month. It is recommended that clients book newborn sessions as early as possible to ensure availability of dates and avoid disappointment. Gaby will make every effort to accommodate late bookings whenever her schedule permits.
Where will my baby be photographed?
All newborn sessions will take place inside the GCP private studio in Glendora. You’ll have access to Gaby’s extensive collection of blankets, wraps, buckets, headbands, bonnets and other accessories to make your newborn session a success. Newborns photograph best in their natural state, so there’s no need for you to worry about outfits or anything at all. This is a time for parents to relax!
How long does a newborn session last?
All sessions are baby-led, meaning we work around the cues of your baby. We allot plenty of time for feeding, diaper changes, and soothing the baby — Sessions are never rushed! Gaby allots up to 4 hours to complete the session, although most sessions last about 3 hours.
Can siblings be a part of the session?
Absolutely!! We encourage the involvement of siblings and parents. We know how special the addition of a new member is, and we love when the whole family is involved.
**Health & Safety
Newborn health and safety is Gaby’s top priority.
With children of her own and years working with young children, Gaby understands a newborn’s vulnerable immune system and takes every precaution to ensure the cleanliness and sanitation of her tools and props. In cases of photographer or client illnesses, sessions will be rescheduled.
Gaby will never jeopardize a baby’s safety during a session. She will not pose your baby in unsafe ways or in unstable props. Poses are always simple and comfortable for your delicate new baby.
