5 Tips for new parents for a newborn photo session
As new parents, a newborn photo session is a special way to capture those early moments and memories with your little one. Here are five tips to help you prepare for your newborn session:
Choose a photographer who specializes in newborn photography. Look for someone with good experience and a portfolio of work that you love.
Schedule the session during the first two weeks after birth. Newborns tend to sleep more during this time, which makes it easier to capture those adorable poses. To get dates in the first two weeks, it is recommended to book the session in advance in third trimester itself. scheduling your session ahead of time will make it less likely that your photographer will be fully booked when you call.
Dress your baby in comfortable clothing that is easy to remove. This will make it easier to change your baby's outfit if needed, and also ensure that they are comfortable throughout the session.
Be patient and flexible. Newborns can be unpredictable, so be prepared to take breaks and open to adjustments in the session as needed to accommodate the baby's comfort and needs..
Feed your baby before the session. A full tummy will help keep your baby happy and content during the photo shoot.
Relax and enjoy the experience. Your baby can sense your energy, so it's important to stay calm and relaxed throughout the session. Trust your photographer to capture beautiful and timeless photos of your little one.
