Newborn photography can be challenging, but it is especially rewarding. It is so awe-inspiring to meet and photograph your baby when it is only a few days old. What better setting for these photos than your own home? Here are a few tips to make sure your newborn session goes well.
Before your baby is born, think about the style of photos and poses that you want. Look through Pinterest and compile a board of your favorite poses. Share these with me so that we can plan ahead to have the necessary props available for your shoot. This will help us create a shared vision for your photos. I am currently booking Piedmont, Berkeley and Orinda newborn session and Lifestyle Photography Sessions.
It is important that both you and your child are comfortable during the photo session. Warm the house up ahead of time so that your newborn will be comfortable with exposed skin. Don't worry about a messy house or baby clutter. We’ll find beautiful settings together.
Plan to capture parts of the nursery in your photos or use a few special items. Is the rocker or bassinet a family heirloom? Please let me know so we can capture this special item in a photo. If the weather is warm, we can even use outdoor spaces. There are plenty of remarkable settings for Hercules newborn photos and in the surrounding area. Plan ahead so that you know which settings you would like to capture.
I hope you will give me the opportunity to be a part of your child's life in this special way. We are now booking Hercules, Berkeley, Orinda, Piedmont and Richmond newborn sessions. Give us a call today to reserve your Piedmont newborn photography or Richmond Lifestyle Portrait session.
