Newborn Session Details
When should you book your newborn session?
Newborn sessions are best when booked in your final trimester. So we have plenty of time to plan ahead for you and your little one’s session date. Maternity and Newborn sessions can be booked together at a discounted rate. Contact me today with any questions, concerns or further needs.
When is the best time to photograph Newborns?
Your photos should be taken with 6-12 days after birth (for most babies) of course. Newborns are best photographed in their first 12 days (but not sooner than 6 days after circumcision). This is the case for most babies are they are still peaceful and sleepy. We will set up the session at your home and I will bring all the heating pads, lighting, and extra goodies to make sure you and the baby are comfortable and happy.
Any tips or further information to make the session successful?
Most sessions run about 2 hours and are best scheduled in the morning hours of the day when the natural lighting enhances the room the most. A well fed baby is a happy baby, so it is recommended that you strive to fill your precious pumpkin up before the session. Also it is recommended to attempt to keep the little one up for up to an hour before the session, so they are ready for a nap. Giving a bath (or a sponge bath if the belly button has not healed) and washing the hair is a great way to keep your little one stimulated before the photos, and a fresh head of fuzzy hair is the cutest!
