Newborn Photography: Preparing For A Session
The arrival of a new addition to the family is an immensely joyful time in a parent’s life. You want to have perfectly captured moments of your beloved bundle of happiness to look back and reminisce when they are all grown up.
Your newborn’s special photos mark a milestone in both your lives and theirs. Here’s what you need to know about planning for a photography session.
Schedule A Session Early
Arrange a session at the studio when your baby is between one and three weeks; this is the time when their adorable selves are more ‘pliant’ for posed shots.
Prepare For The Shoot
Make sure your infant’s daily schedule is organized around the shoot. Feed and change them before you leave for your session. Carry any essential items in such as diapers, wipes, pacifier – as well a few personal items, such as custom-knitted clothing set from the grandparents or perhaps a favorite stuffed toy from an aunt.
Oh, and don’t forget to prepare yourselves! You too are going to be a part of the shoot. If you have any other children, bring along their necessary belongings and clothing changes.
Babies are very delicate; handling them is a challenging task.
Photographing newborns is a more special, hands-on approach to the usual photography methods. Professionals are experienced in handling your infant, but lend a hand where needed.
A newborn shoot is unlike any other photo shoot; it is a time when you get to preserve the bonding moments for a lifetime.
Plan Family Moments
Once the posed-shots are done, have some special family shots with the baby. Do not hesitate to share ideas you may have planned. Play around with the props.
A quite, serene moment with mommy. A fun look with the dad. In case of any additional siblings, a heartwarming hand-holding pose is a perfect ‘aww’ picture.
And then, there are the classic complete-family shots. The photographer will help you figure out the perfect way to immortalize these intimate instances.
