6 Tips for Your Newborn Session

  1. Keep it simple: There is so much happening around you in the first few weeks, the last thing you need to stress about is what to wear on your baby for a newborn session. A simple white onesie is perfect. They don’t scratch like some dresses and pants and also don’t show if you choose to wrap them in a blanket. When things are simplified with no distractions; your attention is drawn to the baby’s face. 2016-09-08_0003
  2. Use swaddles: If you want to use color in your photos, I opt for swaddles. They are comfy, practical, and you can find them now in all kids of fun colors and patterns. 2016-09-08_0004
  3. Use neutral tones: When deciding on what the parents should wear, think of soft neutral colors. They don’t affect the baby’s complexion and will go with any home decor in case you move in several years and want to still hang your prints. Avoid loud prints and bright colors. They can sometimes create a cast on your newborn’s skin. 2016-09-08_0007
  4. Don’t bother with shoes: I normally shoot several photos on the master bed and will ask you to take them off anyway. The baby’s toes make for precious detail shots and I love incorporating the parents in some as well. 2016-09-08_0009 2016-09-08_0002
  5. Siblings: when it comes to toddlers, you should take their portraits first. They still are a bit shy so they tend to listen better. I love warming them up and creating personality photos but I save them for after the portraits are done. 2016-09-08_0006 2016-09-08_0005
  6. Include Grandparents: Grandparents are good distraction for toddlers if they need someone to play with them while their sibling is getting photographed. Also, generation photos are priceless; the portraits you want to frame in your hall.  These are moments you can never get back but can reflect on them anytime you want when captured in photographs.  2016-09-08_0008
