5 Essential Tips for a Successful 'At-Home Newborn Photo Session'

Your baby has finally arrived and unless you had a planned C-section, there's only so much you can plan for in regard to the timing of your baby's arrival.

But you're back home, and you can start to take control again. Something you can definitely plan is a newborn photo session. Let me help you with these five tips for a successful at home newborn photo session.

  1. The Right Timing

Schedule the session during a time when your newborn is typically calm and content, such as after a feeding or nap.

2. The Right Temperature

Make sure the room is comfortably warm to keep your baby happy and relaxed during the session. Consider using swaddles or blankets to keep them snug and make them feel secure.

3. The Adaptability

Think of something unpredictable... yes, a baby would be correct! Your session may last longer than expected, because babies have a lot of needs and you might have to take several breaks to take care of those needs. Just be patient and enjoy the process!

4. The Essentials

To prepare for fussy moments, you'll want to have a few things ready, such as a pacifier, a bottle of formula/breastmilk, diapers, a swaddling blanket.

5. The Right Volume and Environment

Your baby can sense whether you're relaxed and calm and that knowledge can make a difference in the session. Keeping your tone and the general volume of the room down will help keep things peaceful and quiet, which will translate into a pleasant photo session for everyone!
