The general rule with newborn and young baby portrait photography is to photograph them while they are sleeping. I’ll work around your baby’s schedule, even to the point where you can call me on the planned day of the shoot when you are feeding the little one, as after a change and feed often proves a good time to shoot. For older babies, a good time is after they wake from a sleep – you know your baby best, and I’m sure you know when would be best for your little one. When a baby or toddler portrait shoot is booked, that’s the only shoot I’ll be doing that day so the times can be really flexible.
Before the session, we can talk about the styles that you love and what will happen during the session we will have. I will work with you to capture the images you will want to cherish forever. They are only this tiny once, and for the newborn shots it’s best to do these when baby is 10 to 15 days old – at this stage they still have the newborn ‘curl’ and are generally more sleepy.
