Newborn Session Prep

Follow the instructions closely so your little one can have a nice, relaxing session:

– A sweet reminder, no cell phone/picture taking during the session as that will disrupt the baby.  A couple of behind the scenes photos are welcomed.  Prepare to be at least 10 feet away from the baby.  If you are close to them during their photos alone, they will smell you and wonder why you are not comforting them.. which will likely result in a bit of fusiness. 

– Try to keep your baby awake for 1-2 hours before the session… I know this may be tough.  Giving them a bath right before I get there helps and will get them nice and sleepy. 

– Please dress your baby in something that is easy to remove – something that snaps up the front or a diaper with just a wrap…. this will make for an easier transfer into my wraps.  

– Try to time the baby’s feeding so you are finishing around the session start time. 

– I strongly suggest having a pacifier available.  Even if you don’t plan to use it in the future, having it during the session is a HUGE help. You can always throw it away afterwards. 

– A nice, warm room will keep your baby comfy.  If necessary, the heat can be turned up right before we start the session. 

– Moms, if you are breastfeeding, do not drink coffee the morning of the session or eat any spicy foods the day before (it can keep the little one up).

– Your hands will be some photos. Moms, you may want to touch up your nails (if that’s important to you).

Note: Limited behind the scenes photos/videos are allowed during the session as to not disturb the baby during their session. Make sure to send them to me and tag me on social! @iSweetPhoto
