When you specialize in Newborn Photography like I do, you learn that the baby is in control. Yes, I have little tricks in my arsenal from the past 16+ years in business, but sometimes those tricks just don’t work, and having patience is the essential key to making it work. This week I had one baby that was fussy and one that slept like a rock. The difference really is in the experience level and patience of the photographer and how I can calm the mom down by reassuring her each baby session is different and for her not to worry, that I’m going to capture sweet images of her little babe.
With all newborn session, I’m asking the mom what colors are in the baby’s nursery, then mom will pick out her favorite items from everything I’ve selected for the session. I’m really in love with my new, tiny teddy bears. I have them in a range of colors and I just love the texture they add to these sweet images.
I see a trend going on lately, with more wrapped and dressed little babies, so I have a dozen or more little baby outfits for both boys and girls for mom’s to pick from, that add just the right amount of coverage to a baby so they aren’t all naked in every image. These outfits are selected for softness and fit and work perfect for newborn sessions. Easy on and easy off so the baby is less likely to wake up during changes.
Choosing a newborn photographer should not be based on price, it should be based on the style and experience of the photographer. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to capture your baby as the sweet an innocent babe that they are. Believe me when I say that they grow very fast, and before you know it they will be crawling and laughing and before you know it going off to college!
Sessions are typically done between 7-14 days old. Booking during your pregnancy is wise, as most of the best, experienced photographers have their schedules planned out well in advance.
I love helping customers plan our their nursery design by utilizing wall design programs I have on my computer, that will show them exactly how their wall layout will look in their room. It’s important to me that the money they spend with me is money well spent and enjoyed for years to come.
