Preparing for your newborn photo session

August 04, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Scheduling 

The best time for scheduling your session is within the first two weeks of your baby being born. within the first two week the babies are still sleepy and easy to mold into precious poses. 

We recommend our two hour session for newborns. The younger the baby the less likely it is that will need the full two hours, but it gives us plenty of time for feeding and diaper changes.

Tips for a great session 

Make sure that your baby is fed before the session, a well fed baby is a happy sleepy baby. You will want to bring extra milk with you in case the baby gets hungry during our session or we need them to put them back to sleep. 

If your baby does get cranky don't worry, stay calm we have plenty of time built into our session to take breaks when we need to. the session should be relaxed and a enjoyable time while we capture this special time. 

We keep the area for photographing newborns warm enough to keep them comfortable, so at times it may feel hot for everyone else. 

For family members being photographed we recommend dark pants and black long sleeve shirts, Younger siblings can wear lighter colors to match the gender of the baby. We use mom and dads hands in the pictures so make sure your nails look nice.

Packing list

We have different props and backgrounds to customize your session, but we recommend you bring:

  • plain onesie along with other outfits
  • your favorite hats or headbands
  • blankets or other items that are special  
  • personal touch such as something from the baby's room, etc.
