Preparing for your Newborn Session
While we can never predict the temperament of babies and how they will react to their newborn session, moms can take a few steps to prepare both themselves and baby for their first photoshoot. Here’s a quick list of the steps you can take to have a successful newborn session.
Schedule early. As always, for the best results, I recommend that these shoots are done during the first 2 weeks of life when baby is still very sleepy and easily molded into those sweet curly poses. Having your photographer booked before baby arrives will ensure you’re able to get your baby photographed within this window.
**Please note this is just a recommendation, not a requirement. Babies past the 2 week mark can absolutely be photographed, however some poses may not be achieved and your photographer will need to approach posing differently.
