After taking quite a few newborn portraits, I made a list of tips to prepare the parents for the newborn session. When you see our newborn images, the babies look so calm and peaceful like they haven’t cried or become fussy at all… Well here are some tips to make babies comfortable and happy for their portrait session.
Plan the portrait session ahead of time!
For the newly mom and dad, the first few weeks goes so fast.
It is always nice to plan ahead for your newborn photo session. Usually my clients make an appointment when they are about 7 to 8 months pregnant. We usually meet for the consultation before the baby is born. This way, parents can be comfortable being at my studio, getting to meet us and learning more about the session which makes their baby also comfortable. It is amazing how contagious that comfort can be! Some parents decide to do the maternity session to capture the beautiful curves and coming joy. No worries even if the baby isn’t born on the due date or came out earlier than expected. We can be flexible with the photo shoot date once you make a reservation with us.
The best time to photograph newborn babies is 5-10 days after the birth. We capture and create wonderful images of babies at any age, but it is more easy for babies to pose at that age. If your baby is already born, please let us know as soon as possible.
