Thank you for booking your newborn photography session with me, whether you will be coming to my Orpington Studio or I to your own home, I have a few tips to make our session run smoothly.
In my opinion there are only good times to book your newborn session, for curled up sleepy tiny baby I choose 10-14 days. After that baby will be more alert and we will may get some open eye shots as baby will begin to focus their gaze.
So, the date is booked but what happens when baby decides that they would like to arrive early to the party or fashionably late? Just give me a call and we will rearrange the date.
When baby arrives they often have patches of dry skin or develop cradle cap, around 5 days before the shoot you can moisturise baby’s skin, do this every day as it will help the skin look more even in texture and eliminate any dry patches.
Make sure the room we will be using is warm. I like to photograph the babies naked and although I will always make sure they are covered in between different shot set-up’s, we don’t want them to get cold.
