How To Prepare For Your Newborn Session

A newborn session is a perfect way to capture the beauty of your baby’s first days. Since these sessions are scheduled for the first 1-2 weeks after your baby is born, you will get priceless and timeless photos that you can treasure forever. Whether you are planning to book or have already booked your session, here are a few things you should know about preparing for your newborn session.

How To Prepare For Your Newborn Session

Schedule In Advance

The first and most important tip for preparing for your newborn session is to schedule in advance. The first few weeks of being a new parent can be hectic, and our sessions fill up quickly, so scheduling your session in advance will make the process stress-free, and it's one less thing you need to worry about going into your final months of pregnancy.

No Sleep Before The Session

We get it, newborns sleep a lot, and things are much more peaceful when your baby sleeps. However, we ask that you keep your baby awake before the session so they can sleep through the session, allowing for all of the cute sleeping poses you want.

When To Feed Your Baby

When it comes to feeding a newborn, figuring out the right schedule can be hectic. You simply can’t set a schedule and stick to it all the time (if you can, congrats!). We only ask that you feed your baby about 20-30 minutes before the session to allow them to be calm and sleep throughout the session.

What Your Baby Should Wear

A newborn session is about keeping your baby comfortable and ensuring we get the best photos possible. When it comes to what to wear, we suggest putting your baby in a loose-fitting diaper to keep them comfortable and avoid diaper lines that may stand out in the photos.
