How to prepare for a newborn photo session ?
Although none of our newborn photo sessions are quite the same, here are some tips for keeping baby happy and making the experience as comfortable as possible.
The first question is : when is the best time to take newborn photos ?
It is in the two weeks following the arrival of baby that we recommend to book the photo session. Baby is calm and sleeps most of the time which will facilitate the whole process.
How to prepare baby for the session ?
Before the session
– Plan everything you need to feel relaxed. Babies can feel your stress. So relax !
-Also prepare for everything baby could need : different outfits, diapers, wipes …
-Bring a familiar item, such as a rattle or blanket, to make them feel at home.
