Why You Need Photos of Your Newborn
When babies are born, they grow so fast; blink, and they have changed! As each day passes, they enter new stages in their life journey. During this festive period, you find yourself inundated with changing nappies, feedings, sleepless nights and an endless stream of family and friends coming to visit. You find yourself so busy tending to your gorgeous baby that you may miss capturing those beautiful newborn baby moments.
When to Book a Newborn Session
As babies change quickly after birth, it is best to book your newborn session around two-four weeks after your baby is born.
It’s all about timing when photographing newborns. So we try to schedule the photo shoot during the baby’s nap time. We keep the baby swaddled and comfortable during the session, so they’re nice and sleepy. We also keep a portable heater in the studio, so babies are kept nice and warm. We also use stuffers under our baby’s props, so it helps support the baby and adds dimension to the photos while giving the baby a comfortable place to sleep.
Is is Safe to Photograph a Newborn?
As a mother of three girls, your baby’s comfort and safety are top priority to ensure not to put your baby in any uncomfortable or unsafe positions. In addition, I don’t use bright lights that may be harmful to your baby’s eyes. Often, parents have seen newborn photo shoots on Facebook or Instagram, like a newborn baby in a sitting position or swinging in a hammock, resulting in editing.
We let babies find a spot they are comfortable in and work with them. We also support mothers in finding a cozy spot with their little one and capturing those beautiful natural candid moments.
