As part of my blog series for expecting and new mamas, today I am sharing my list of tips to prepare for your newborn photography session! One of my favorite things about my newborn sessions is that nothing is forced; the sole focus is on your connection and bond with your new family member, surrounded by soft lighting and neutral colors in my gorgeous studio, not distracted by any wild backgrounds or colors. Because my newborn sessions are organic in nature and based on your connection rather than a multitude of poses and backdrops, there is no need to stress if baby will be cooperative or unhappy in various poses or outfits. There are just a few simple things you can do in the week or day leading up to your newborn session to help everything go smoothly! Here are a couple of the tips that my clients receive before coming in for their newborn session!

  • Please let me know that your baby has arrived as soon as possible. It is not necessary to message me while your baby’s cord is being cut, but before leaving the hospital is great! This will give us our best chance at scheduling your session within the ideal first fourteen days of life.

  • Newborn sessions take anywhere from 2 and 4 hours to complete, so be careful to not to make other plans too soon after your session time. I have light refreshments available during your time at the studio, but highly recommend a good meal beforehand!

  • Newborn babies are typically the least fussy during the morning, therefore newborn sessions are scheduled at this time of day. This is also the timing of the dreamiest lighting in the studio!

  • Try to keep your baby awake for 1-2 hours prior to arriving at the studio. A good way to do this is by giving your baby a bath, which also helps the hair look soft and fluffy.

  • If possible, try to wait until arriving at the studio to feed and burp your baby. Bring along plenty of extra pumped breast milk or formula or plan to nurse throughout your session. You may need to nurse more frequently during your session than you would normally, which is part of the reason we allow so much time for our session! A full baby is a happy, sleepy baby. And be sure to bring lots of extra diapers!

  • It is recommended to have your hair and makeup professionally done for your newborn session so that you can sit back and relax for the morning.

  • And most importantly, rest assured that your new baby is in safe hands and will not be forced into any uncomfortable poses or unsafe situations. Consider your session as a chance to rest, catch up on emails or social media, read magazines, or even take a nap.
