With so many things to think about buying and getting ready when you have a baby arriving it's not unusual for clients to wait until their babies have been born before they think about booking a professional newborn photo shoot. However many photographers in Somerset don't have availability for last minute newborn photography sessions since most are ready to take bookings from as early as the 20 weeks scan many slots are already filled. This often leads to disappointment due to lack of availability or clients not being able to book their first choice of photographer to capture their newborn in their first few weeks of life.

I'd say my busiest time of the year is definitely the months leading up to Christmas. The last three years I have been completely fully booked for newborn sessions from September to December leaving no availability at all until the new year for newborn photography sessions. I always end up turning away several clients at this time of year and with many other local photographers in the same position a lot of these clients have been unable to book a professional photographer to capture their newborn.

So here is a reminder to all of you lovely expectant Mum's and Dad's, if you're looking for a professional newborn photography session NOW is the time to start looking around!
