Here are a few tips for preparing for a newborn portrait session.
Keeping newborns comfortable during portrait sessions
Keeping babies warm and comfortable during a portrait session is essential for a successful session. One way to do this is we ensure the room temperature is warm enough that the baby will feel comfortable. Also, we make sure to avoid direct air conditioning or drafts in the room, as this can make the baby uncomfortable. If the baby is wearing multiple layers of clothing, you can always remove a layer if the baby starts to get too warm. Additionally, providing soft blankets and a few favorite toys can help the baby feel more relaxed and secure during the session.
Choosing the right props for a newborn portrait session
When planning a newborn portrait session, selecting the right props can make all the difference! Choose items that are neutral in color and won’t distract from the beautiful image of your subject. Blankets, baskets, and rugs are great for creating cozy and comfortable scenes. You can also use props like toys or hats to add a bit of personality to the photo. Be sure to keep comfort in mind; be sure the props are soft and the baby won’t be in any uncomfortable positions. Lastly, make sure the items you choose coordinate with the overall look of the photo. Have fun with it and let’s get creative!
Having everything ready before the newborn session
Make sure you have all of the necessary clothing and accessories you need, such as a onesie, hat, blanket, and any other items you might want to include in the photos. Second, plan ahead and make sure your home is tidy and clean, as this will help create a great atmosphere for the photos. Finally, make sure to have plenty of snacks and drinks available to help keep the session going smoothly. I hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck with your session!
