Along with gender reveals, newborn photo shoots are becoming even more popular thanks to social media.
If this is your first time doing a newborn photo shoot, you may not know what to expect or how to prepare.
Bringing a new life into the family is an exciting and stressful adventure. Leave that stress out of your photo session with these newborn photography tips.
You want to make sure that they are clean and ready to go before the photo shoot.
If your baby's umbilical cord has fallen off or was cut, then you can give them a regular bath. If they still have it attached, then just give them a gentle sponge bath.
Try to make it a calming experience for them so they aren't agitated before the photo shoot.
These photo shoots can sometimes take a while, and if the rest of your family is coming along as well, you want to make sure you have some snacks and food ready to go.
You should give your newborn a full feeding beforehand, but you should also bring back up bottles just in case.
Make sure that you eat before the photo shoot too!
You shouldn't let your baby take a nap before the photo shoot to ensure that they are tired and doze off during it.
However, if the baby doesn't sleep and stays awake for a lot of the session, you may need to take breaks every now and then.
Having breaks in between will ensure that you and your baby stay relaxed as possible during the session.
Staying relaxed is important and essential to getting good pictures.
You probably picked your photographer because you liked their pictures, and you should trust that they know what they're doing.
This is a chance for you to relax and know that after it's all over you're going to have beautiful photos that you will be able to keep forever.
Having newborn photography shots will be something that you will cherish forever.
You will be able to look back on these photos and gush over how small they used to be.
