NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY (for babies under 4 weeks old)

Things to bring:

  • 2 changes of clothing
  • A noisy toy
  • A blanket
  • A comfort item eg. dummy or toy they sleep with
  • Any items that are sentimental to you such as something you received in the hospital or a toy/blanket that was yours when you were a child

What to wear:

The studio needs to be warm enough for your new baby so it’s best for you to wear layers as it can get quite warm. If you wish to be in the photos then avoiding clothing with patterns or logos is best. Siblings are most welcome but as the session can be quite long it is best to bring along some toys/books or better yet, an extra pair of hands.  Photography sessions with siblings can be conducted first thing so that they can go as soon as their part is complete. Please dress your baby in something easy to remove with a loose nappy so that nappy marks aren’t left on the skin.

The 2 hour photography session is best to allow for feeding changing, soothing and changes to the photography backdrops and props. It also allows for more time to obtain sleepy baby photos. It is possible that you will need to feed your baby more during this session. The best time for a newborn session is between 7-10 days old. Please book in a tentative time with me so I can ensure I can fit you in when your little bundle arrives. I have a wide variety of wraps, headbands, costumes, beanies, blankets, and various other props to choose from.

Things to remember:

  • If your newborn baby boy has been circumsized then sessions will need to be booked a week after this so the area has healed.
  • Babies sense emotions and won’t settle if you’re not settled.
  • Babies are attuned to their parents and siblings voices so it’s best to try to stay quiet and whisper during the session.
  • Feed your baby right before the session as this will calm them.
  • If you are breastfeeding it is best to refrain from coffee, caffeine and spicy foods for 48 hours prior to your session.
