5 Steps for a Smooth Newborn Session

Newborns are unpredictable and they have their own schedule but these tips will make your Newborn session run smoother.

Tip 1 – Pre book your Newborn Photographer

you want a good photographer, book them while you are still pregnant. This allows time to communicate with the photographer for session expectations and crosses one thing off your list!

Tip 2 – Save Inspiration images

Inspiration is everywhere! Get excited, start saving your favourite images, create a Pinterest board and write out ideas. All of this will help your newborn photographer understand your hopes for a great newborn session.

Tip 3 – Pre Session Day!

Read over the prep guide that hopefully, your newborn photographer sent you. Pack the nappy bag, extra bottles if you are bottle feeding, dummy just in case, any special things and get excited!

Tip 4 – Session Day

NO STRESS! Session day is here.

Get to your session and try and relax. The more relaxed you are, the more the baby will be. Trust your newborn photographer and enjoy the moment, your baby will never be this small again.

Tip 5 – Feed upon arrival

I usually ask to feed the baby upon arrival, but check with your newborn photographer on their guidelines.

I prefer when mum feeds the baby in my studio so (hopefully) I work with a happy sleepy baby.

It’s also a chance to get some beautiful photos of this moment.
