About Your Newborn Session

Congratulations! You've just had a baby! You want to remember every little thing. Fingers, toes, baby's beautiful lashes, sweet cherub cheeks, every adorable bit of baby squish. Your precious new little one is only this tiny once. Your newborn session with Valerie Kay Photography will create images that capture those tiny details that change so fast.


The best time to photograph your newborn is between 6 and 25 days. This is the sleepiest, squishiest time. Most newborn session poses require baby to be in a very deep sleep and these first weeks is the optimal time. For this reason it is important to schedule your Newborn Session as far in advance as possible.


We only take 8-10 newborn clients a month. As such, our schedule often fills months in advance so in order to book your preferred date you should contact me early.


If you are interested in maternity portraits you should inquire about booking a Maternity Session or the Belly to Baby Plan as early as the end of your first trimester.
