I am often asked "When should I schedule my maternity, birth, just born, or newborn session?!"


This is a beautiful season of your life that you WILL talk about for the rest of your life. Capture these wonderful moments to tell the story for you in your own photography art.


Maternity Session

The best time to contact me for your maternity session is as soon as your find out your are going to be a mother!! This allows time to schedule your exclusive session with Lindsay Archer Photography. Most maternity sessions take place towards the end of your 2nd trimester or the beginning of your 3rd trimester. This allows for your to have a full belly and to capture your wonderful maternity glow.


Birth Photography

The best time to contact me for your birth session while you are pregnant. The earlier in the your pregnancy the better. This allows us to communicate about where you are delivering and go over the different hospital guidelines for professional birth photographers.

Just Born Photography

The best time to contact me for your Just Born session is during your pregnancy. We will want to tentatively schedule a date by your due date. This is a wonderful session for moms who want the hospital portraits but not a birth session. For many moms that have scheduled c-sections this is a ideal portrait session for you. This allows for you to have a day or two to get some rest in the hospital and time to get ready for your intimate just born session.

Newborn Session


The best time to contact me for your newborn session is during your pregnancy so that you do not miss out. We will make a tentative booking based on your due date and then I will wait to hear from you when you arrive home with your new baby. We will then arrange a suitable time and date for your session then. The ideal time to photography babies is around 6-10 days of age.
