Hello there, proud parents!
First of all, congratulations on the arrival of your little bundle of joy! As you embark on this incredible journey of parenthood, you’ve taken the right first steps to preserve this special moment in time by booking a Denver in-home newborn photography session to capture those precious early moments. To ensure your newborn is comfortable and the session goes smoothly, let’s dive into how to prep your baby for their special photoshoot.
1. A Well-Rested Baby: On the day of the session, aim to have your baby well-rested. A good nap before my arrival time can make a world of difference. Well-rested newborns are more likely to be content during the session.
2. Dress Your Baby Comfortably: Keep your baby comfortable by dressing them in loose-fitting, easy-to-remove clothing. This will help with the smooth transition between outfits during the session.
3. If Possible, A Full Tummy: Before the session, feed your baby if they are hungry. A full tummy can equal a happy baby. Be prepared to offer extra feeds (if needed), along with any comfort items that soothe your little one.
4. Be Mindful of Room Temperature: Your baby will be in various adorable outfits, so ensure that the room where the session takes place is comfortably warm. A cozy environment will help your baby stay calm and relaxed.
5. Plan for Diaper Changes: Newborns go through diapers quickly, so have an ample supply of diapers and wipes on hand. A clean and dry baby is a happy baby!
6. Relax and Enjoy the Process: During the session, try to lean into your photographer’s eye. Your role is to relax, enjoy the moment, and celebrate this new milestone in your family!
7. We Will Capture Natural Moments: While posed shots are enchanting, we won’t forget to capture the natural moments – the yawns, stretches, and adorable facial expressions. These candid shots show your little one’s natural spirit, and often hold the most sentimental value.
8. Embrace Your Baby’s Personality: Every baby is unique. Embrace your baby’s personality during the session. If your baby is wide awake and curious, we can capture those bright eyes and expressions. If they’re snoozing peacefully, we’ll capture the serenity of their slumber.
9. Be ready to be on camera as yourself. Wear comfortable clothing that represents you at this time in your life, no need to look like perfect models! You have just been through a big life transition and our goal will be to get some nice, authentic lifestyle family photos of your new family unit.
In summary, the key to preparing your newborn for the Denver in-home photography session is to prioritize their comfort, well-being, and natural rhythms. A well-fed, well-rested, and comfortably dressed baby is likely to have a wonderful session, resulting in cherished memories that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
You and your special new arrival’s first photoshoot is a unique and special moment, and I’m here to make it as smooth and enjoyable as possible. We’ll capture the essence of your newborn’s early days, creating beautiful memories to cherish for years to come.
I am SO looking forward to meeting your precious bundle of joy!
