Newborn Photo Session Tips

 

Newborn sessions can last anywhere from 2-3 hours. It all depends on baby’s mood and willingness to sleep.  To smooth and have a successful session, here are some tips for Parent to read:

 

When to book your session?

You can book your session at the end of your 2nd trimester or beginning of your 3rd trimester

 

When the best time frame?

The best time to do the Newborn Session is within the first 14 days.  Babies still in their deep sleepy mode.  We will be moving them around and scrunching them into those sweet sleepy newborn images, so we want to make sure they’re sleepy enough to allow us to pose them.

 

Where is the location?

Majority of our Newborn session done in our studio.  But we also can come to your house within the 20 miles of Bossier City.

 

What kind of lighting we use during the session?

For us lighting is everything and important part of every sessions.  We are using natural lights and strobes bounce to a white umbrellas and soft box. 

 

 

 

Studio/Room Temperature

We will keep the room temperature about 78-80 degrees.  If we do in your house, wee recommend that you keep your home a bit warmer than normal during the session.  Newborns are used to being all bundled up,warm and cozy.

 

Feeding the babies

 Please feed the baby right before our session to ensure they are relax and sleepy.  A well fed baby is a happy baby :-). 

 

Noise Control

Please do whatever you can to keep the noise level to a minimum during our session. If you have other children that might create noise, try to find a sitter or family member to take them away from the home for a few hours. If you have a noisy pet, you may want to do the same. We’ll bring a white noise music, but it doesn’t always block out tantrums and playtime.

* If you have children and would like them to be included in some photos, we recommend bringing them in at the beginning or end of a session and then having someone take them. Only those being photographed should be present to help maintain a calm environment.

 

Calm, Patience and Relax is the key

Some moms tend to stress out because this is a new experienced. Sometimes baby being fussy or having a difficult time getting settled. Please keep calm and relax. 

 

Poop Happens

Please don’t panic if your baby decides to use our blankets or our cloths for thier own personal potty.  This is natural and we expect it! Please don’t feel embarrassed or worry when this happens, because they all do it.

 

Props

We have a selections of baskets, blankets, hats, headbands and cute diaper.  You are also welcome to bring your own props to make your images unique.

 

What to wear?

Please have your hair + makeup done.  This is your important moment and you’ll see the pictures in your wall everyday.  You will want to look in your best.  Wear your best dress/cloths or whatever best for you.  However, we suggest natural color and avoid patterns.
