Just like pregnant women with maternity photo, new parents can now also document newborns with a special baby photographer, you know. One interesting thing for Bubun about newborn photography is the babies sleeping peacefully throughout the photo session.
Photographers like baby whisperer, does not make the baby fussy during the photo session. However, it turns out that behind it all, citing the official website of a photo studio based in New York City, USA, there are tips for parents to make photo sessions with newborns run smoothly.
The following tips are quoted from the page Glow Potraits:
1. Schedule sessions ahead of time
Most photographers will only do a newborn session when the baby is between 5-14 days old. By scheduling in advance from the second trimester and the photographer will be ready when the baby is born.
Also, scheduling a session in advance reduces the chance that the photographer will be fully booked when called. Waiting until the last minute to schedule a session is less likely to get a photographer of choice.
2. Keep baby awake before the photo session
It’s no secret that babies sleep a lot, Mother. But sometimes, their sleep patterns don’t go according to our plans. If you want your little one to calm down during the photo session, keep them awake before the photographer arrives.
Making sure baby is awake before the session is a great way to guarantee they will sleep through most of the session. That will lead to peaceful images, not images where they look angry or red-faced from crying.
3. Feed the baby 20-30 minutes before the session
Mothers certainly don’t want their photo session to be interrupted by the frantic cries of those hungry for milk. Feeding and burping baby right before the baby photo session starts will make the photo session go smoothly.
Most photo sessions last about two hours. Don’t forget to prepare a bottle containing expressed breast milk just in case at the last minute, your little one is hungry.
