To capture those precious moments of your newborn, it's ideal to schedule your newborn photoshoot in Dallas is between 4 to 14 days. Around this time frame, is when your newborn baby is peacefully sleeping and can be posed, and transitioned into those adorable womb-like newborn baby photography positions. I highly recommend reserving your newborn photoshoot with a DFW newborn baby photographer, well in advance to secure availability around your due date. Once your bundle of joy arrives, simply reach out, and from there a definite newborn session date is scheduled 6-10 days following your release.


For those wanting to book a newborn photoshoot, well after your baby has been born, please don't lose heart! Although, I highly recommend clients book their newborn baby photography session well in advance, I do have openings from time to time. However, please note, after the 14-16 day window, transitioning older babies from one newborn baby photography pose to another, can become a bit difficult for your newborn baby. It’s harder to achieve "newborn" photography photos after this short window because they’re more sensitive to touch, become more alert with the required movement and positioning needed for their newborn photoshoot, but more importantly, it's uncomfortable for them to curl up into those sweet fetal positions because of their increase in ligament strength.


For 1st birthday cake smash pictures, I recommend booking around 10 months, so it'll give us enough time to properly customize your baby's cake smash photoshoot. If you want to schedule in a cake smash photos as soon as possible, I'm more than happy to assist, contingent on my availability. For cake smash photo sessions, parent's are only responsible for the cake itself (due to health concerns) and baby's outfit. Setup and props are included in your collection total with the cake smash photographergm.




When it comes to props and accessories, I've got you covered! As a leading newborn photographer and cake smash photographer in Dallas, I offer a wide access to adorable newborn photography props, blankets, wraps, swaddles, bonnets, hats, headbands and accessories for your baby's custom newborn photography experience, as well and cake smash pictures. You are not required to bring or purchase anything, unless it's something you would like to incorporate. Most of the items have been handmade by talented designers who put effort into ensuring the item is perfect for your newborn baby's portraits. Although I'm more than willing to include a cherished outfit or heirloom, it's important to note, that generic newborn clothing can often appear bulky and detract from the delicate features of your newborn baby.




Your infant photography experience, just doesn't stop there. Within a week of your newborn photoshoot in DFW, you will receive a link to your private online proofing gallery. There, you can carefully select your favorite newborn or cake smash photos for editing. Once you have made your final selection, I will artistically enhance each image to my distinctive newborn photography and cake smash photography style. My goal is for you to cherish your final portraits. Each newborn photo is tastefully transformed into a unique masterpiece. Behind the scenes, I dedicate countless hours to ensure that your newborn photography in Dallas photos, cake smash photos and overall experience, is truly EXCEPTIONAL from start to finish!
