Newborn Preparation Tips.
What Should I Bring?
We encourage our clients to bring up to two special, personal items which make the session and images especially meaningful. For example: a sentimental blanket or bonnet. But don’t worry if you don’t have anything to bring. Our studio is stocked with many props, wraps, hats, etc.
What Should I Wear?
We photograph baby naked or in a diaper that we cover with our wraps. For siblings and parents, please try to wear neutral tones such as gray, tans, blues or cream. Please refrain from heavy patterened clothes. We feel that neutrals create more of a timeless look.
How Should I Prepare?
We recommend that you bring baby to the session well rested and plan to feed baby as soon as you arrive. Sleepy babies photograph perfectly, so we will ask you to undress and swaddle baby before the feeding so as to not disturb them by undressing them after the feeding. We take several breaks for feeding baby during the session to ensure that baby is happy and has a full tummy. We ask that you not be too concerned with scheduled feedings during the session and that you feed baby on demand or when they get a bit fussy to ensure their comfort and a smooth session. Bring a bottle or pacifier if available.
If baby does not sleep during the session, we usually wrap him/her in most poses so they feel secure
and photograph better. It’s ok to have open eyes in baby’s first photos!
