Schedule Your Session Ahead of Time

A newborn photo shoot is usually done when your newborn is less than a few weeks old. To ensure you get the date and time that you want, it's best to schedule your session in advance so you'll be ready after your newborn is born.

Keep Your Baby Up Before the Session

If you want your little one to be settled and sleep during your photoshoot, it's best to keep them up for a little while before the session. This will help them to be nice and sleepy by the time we start taking pictures.


Feed Your Baby Right Before the Session

A full tummy usually means a content baby, so try to feed your newborn right before the session. This will help them to be relaxed and comfortable during the shoot.


Plan Out Your Outfits Beforehand

You'll want to look your best in your newborn photos, so it's a good idea to plan out your outfits beforehand. This way, you can focus on enjoying the session and leave the fashion planning to us!
