Newborn Photography: When & What
When to book: Newborn babies are ideal to photograph between 5 & 20 days old, when they are still very flexible and womb-like and spend most of their time sleeping.
What to wear: We prefer babies dressed very simply in plain onesies, muslin swaddles, or just diaper – whatever their comfort level is. Wear something that makes you feel beautiful. Neutral, light (creams, whites, grays or pastel tones) work best as they don’t take away from the natural beauty of your baby. For you, solid or floral tops (and textures like big knits and lace) work best. But please feel free to bring what makes you look great yet comfortable.
When will the session take place?
Newborn session timing is important here because at this age, the babies are much sleepier and flexible, and enjoy being curled up and cozy most of the time. All this allows us to be able to capture those adorable shots where they are swaddled or tucked in and positioned in baskets and other props. In our consultation session we go over the sleeping patterns of your newborn and all what is required to have an amazing session.
Where will the session take place?
We prefer to have the session in our studio as we are equipped with multiple options like props, blankets, swaddles, posing supplies and much more for the newborn session. Alternatively we could align it in the comfort of your home provided, there is enough natural light and space.
Do I need to bring any props or outfits?
You do not have to, we have a large collection of props, blankets, hats, headbands, and swaddles, so you do not need to bring your own. However, if you have something specific that you would like included, please let us know ahead of time so we can find a way to incorporate it.
What about siblings?
Siblings are most welcome, the session is equally important for them. Sister(s) should wear a neutral top or a neutral, plain colored dress. Big brother(s) should wear jeans or khakis and a nice, neutral plain shirt if possible. We want to keep the focus on the baby, so no logos or patterns please.
How long with the session last?
With newborn photography sessions, there are two options. A full newborn session is 3-4 hours long and a mini-newborn session is 1.5 hours. Normally the newborn photography session takes 2 – 4 hours, however there is no restriction placed on timeline. Quality is a priority for us.

Tips for Newborn Photography
Diapers – Please take off your baby’s diaper a little before the session so any diaper lines have time to disappear. Nothing is the best wardrobe for a newborn – no outfit fits a newborn well, and they often look swallowed in clothes. However, in case you want to use diapers cloth diapers are classy and stylish, but if you don’t use them, bring bloomers or decorative diaper covers, solids preferred.
Be prepared for messes. Babies don’t care where they use the bathroom. Please have wipes and extra diapers handy.
Outfit – Most outfits tend to visually overwhelm newborns in pictures. If you do have a special outfit recommendation is keeping it to just one as babies tend to get cranky during outfit changes.
- Dad – Have a fresh shave or trim, and use a new razor with shaving cream and a moisturizing after-shave lotion to limit bumps and redness. Make sure nails are clean and trimmed. Wash your hands. Clean up your shoes. For wardrobe, go for jeans or pants, tucked polo or dress shirt with a belt, or go casual with just a T-shirt or untucked polo, button-up short sleeve, etc. In general, whatever your wife tells you to wear. Again you don’t have to perfectly match the rest of the family, just wear something that coordinates. However just make sure avoid wearing white or other bright color such as red, teal, green or yellow which can give off a color cast.
- Mom – Women know what to wear, but in general, unless you are extremely thin you may want to wear something that covers your upper-arms. Long- or 3/4-sleeve tops are very flattering. If you wear jewelry, aim for subtlety, and be aware of it twisting or turning.
- Kids – Same advice as above, but again, everything needn’t match, simply coordinate with the parents’ outfits. If Dad’s in a T-shirt, don’t put the kids in dress shirts – make it make sense.
Time – Newborn portrait sessions can last longer than regular sessions as we have no idea how they will be feeling that day, so be prepared to spend anywhere from 1-3 hours at your session, so just feel free to bring yourselves bottled water, snacks that won’t mess up your clothing, makeup. Babies sense their parents feelings and nerves. Please remember to stay clam and relaxed so that your baby will be as well. Babies that are clam and relaxed are easier to fall asleep and pose.
Book your shoot around your baby’s feeding and nap times, work with the natural rhythm of your baby. The perfect time to shoot is right when the baby would be laying down for a nap. Feed baby 30 minutes before session so he will be full. Full babies sleep better. Remember your baby will most likely cry. Its OK, He or She may not sleep as well or go to sleep that quickly. Its fine, babies aren’t use to being repositioned and posed every few minutes.
Family portrait– For family pictures, please have a couple of dark-colored shirts on hand (they don’t necessarily have to be black, just dark enough to provide a good backdrop for the baby).
Props – Please bring Clean blankets. Accessories are good, though – little hats, dainty headbands, boys in crocheted hats, etc. Bring sentimental items like the quilt that Grandma made for the baby, a baby blanket from your own childhood – they’re great for the youngster to lay on. Props may include your kids’ favorite toys. Some ideas include: jump rope, chalk, bubbles, balloons, giant lollipops, costumes, sunglasses, Radio Flyer wagons.
If your baby takes a pacifier, bring it – if they’re bottle fed, bring an extra bottle to help put the baby to sleep.
Smile – Please try to smile for the entire duration of the “posed family photos.” It might be tricky to get a smile out of your child at times, so we need you to be ready in that split second your child flashes that fabulous face you want on your wall.
