Your newborn session will typically take around 2-3 hours as we’re truly baby led. We allow lots of time for your little one to drift into a deep, milk-drunk sleep before we get to work gently posing them for those super cute shots. Here’s a few tips you should consider before attending your newborn photoshoot…
1. Milk, milk, milk… and even more milk
We’ll need your baby super sleepy and that usually happens right after a full belly… milk drunk! Think of it as a post Sunday roast nap snoozing on a comfy sofa. Please bring extra milk as it can take 2-3 feeds to get your baby to sleep
2. Enjoy the experience!
This might sound a bit prescriptive, but worth a mention. It’s all too easy to forget to grab the opportunity to observe and enjoy the shoot. Make the most of your ‘down’ time while we work with your little one, have a hot cuppa and grab a few hands-free minutes while you can! Even unsettled babies sleep eventually, alternatively awake newborn shots are also striking. Parents often tell us they worry their baby will be restless etc but we’re so used to working with newborns it’s really not an issue for us.
