New Born Session Check-list

 

 

• Baby should be only in a diaper when I arrive, that way we do not have to disrupt him/her by undressing them

•  I need to arrive at their sleepiest time – so keep an eye on their “new” schedule and we will figure out the best time to come (must be within great lighting times too)

• We will be shooting in the room with the most available natural light so make sure the room is clear and clean… (Unless you are coming to me)

• Have that room warmed up with a space heater and/or turn your air up so that the room temperature is nice and warm

• I will bring a heating pad and white noise machine should you not have one

• Try to feed baby (if schedule allows) 30 minutes or so prior to my arrival

• Have all items that you are interested in using in the shoot out and ready for me to sort through:  baskets, blankets, hats, headbands, etc.

• Make sure nursery is nice and tidy, should we do photos of baby in there

• If you would like to be in images with your baby, make sure to look nice and wear colors that compliment your setting.  I suggest beautiful light colors for a soft and gentle look.

•I don’t always have an assistant available so I may need help. It would be great if Dad, Grandma etc is around – I don’t want Mom to be working too hard.
