Frequently Asked Questions

When should I schedule my session? The best time to reserve your mini newborn session is during your second trimester.  It is important to reserve your session before your baby arrives!  Reserving your due date guarantees a place on the calendar during the very short “newborn” stage.  We only accept a limited number of due dates per month to guarantee all babies are able to be photographed during the best possible age.  If you chose to book after baby arrives, we will do our best to accommodate you, but the newborn stage cannot be guaranteed.  For mini milestone and cake smash sessions, we recommend booking at least one month in advance.  Weekends tend to fill first, so if you do need a weekend spot, please reserve as early as possible.

Is newborn photography safe?  We understand the importance of protecting your little one.  We pride ourselves on newborn knowledge and safety.  Love by Lindey Portrait Studio provides a safe, controlled environment for your photography session.  Lindey keeps immunizations up to date (including DTaP, aka Whooping Cough Vaccine).  We sanitize the studio between each session, and wash our blankets and even our own clothing in detergents recommended for newborns.  Lindey has been trained in newborn posing and safety by the best in the industry, and she has photographed hundreds of newborns since 2012.  Newborn and baby photography is our specialty, and safety is our top priority.

Can I include my husband or other children? Yes!  In fact, we encourage it.  Newborns will only fit into your arms for such a short time, and we want the pictures to remember this precious time.  Sibling and family poses are included in your custom newborn and first birthday sessions.  Add family poses to your mini newborn session for an additional $75.

Do I need to bring anything to the session?  Our goal is to make your session as easy as possible.  We think of everything ahead of time so that you can just enjoy your session!  We will send a prep guide with wardrobe guideance for your mini session.  We also provide all props and outfits, if you do prefer to have us dress your baby.

What about props?  We provide all of the props, outfits, headbands, etc, that you’ve seen posted throughout our website and on social media.  You are welcome to bring along heirloom items that you would like to incorporate in your session.  We do find that it is best not to order an outfit specifically for your newborn session, as some items from etsy and other shops do not fit or photograph well.  We hand select everything we keep in studio, knowing it will look and fit best.

Can you come to my home to photograph my session?  Absolutely!  Although this session is a bit different.  In studio, we are able to provide the large options of props and backdrops, as well as control the atmosphere so we can pose the newborn how we want.  In a home, or lifestyle, session, it is more about capturing reality.

Do you offer full sessions?  We do!  Mini sessions are ideal for clients looking for a quality session on a budget.  If you are just looking to capture this milestone and  digital files are the only concern, mini session is a great option for your family.

Full, or custom, portrait sessions are great for those looking for an exceptional experience.  With wardrobe design, home design, professional makeup artist, and multi-generational poses included, a custom session is unlike any typical photoshoot available in north Louisiana. 

Do you offer gift cards?  Yes!  Family and friends can purchase gift cards at  We are also happy to provide complimentary cards to include in your shower invitations so guests know that you are registered with the studio.

Do you offer sessions other than newborn and baby sessions?  We do!  We offer a variety of sessions, including maternity, child and family sessions.  We also offer seasonal sessions, such as Magical Santa sessions in November and mini family sessions in the fall.  For more information, please email us or call us at the studio at 318-742-9101.

Do the sessions include any files? Your mini session does include your five favorite digital files.  Additional files are available for purchase.
