Booking a newborn session is such an exciting time! Deciding to have professional photography done is something I truely wish had done with my babies. Beautiful images to keep for a lifetime. Let’s talk about a topic that I speak to mums about before their newborn session.
The night before the photography shoot I often receive a message from beautiful mummas worrying about if their baby will “play ball” with the photography session in the morning. I often get ask “What happens if my baby does not settle” or “When should I feed?, Should I hold off until you arrive?”. Understandably this is a cause for anxiety for parents and I completely understand, having three children of my own I can relate to the feeling of trying to settle your little bundle of joy.
My advice is always, carry on as if this was a normal day in your home. The beauty of my newborn sessions is that I come to you!. This is the best place for you and your baby to feel comfortable and where I want to be for this reason alone. It creates an environment for baby to feel safe and secure being where home is, everything is right there if you need it. When mum is relaxed baby is more than likely feeding off your relaxing vibes.
Feed baby when you would normally feed baby, my whole newborn photography session is based around your baby, when they are settled is when I work my magic!. I am yet to experience a session where baby has not settled, sure there are sessions where baby might settle for only a short period of time and this is when i jump in to capture the moments. All my session I’ve managed to capture so many absolutely gorgeous images when babies are ready, and if for some reason your session day was just not meant to be, we can always reschedule for another day. No stress.
I pride myself on being a natural free moving photographer, I am extremely easy going and patient. I’m guided by your babies queues, their patterns and only ever pose them in positions they are comfortable in. Creative sessions allow plenty of time for feeding and settling baby, whilst we chat about motherhood! I am always so interested in your birth stories and how you are going.
