Tips for the day of newborn sessions
Newborn sessions may last up to 2 hours. Here are some tips to help the session run more smoothly.
Try to feed your baby before coming to the studio. If you arrive and baby seems to be hungry feel free to feed them again.
If your baby takes pacifiers be sure to bring a few. Pacifiers can work very well to soothe babies while getting them posed.
There is usually a heater on during the newborn session to keep baby comfortable. It may become warm in the studio.
While I know many people would love to come and watch baby's first modeling gig, I do ask that you do not bring a large group. The studio can only accommodate about 4 adults comfortably.
You're welcome to bring snacks to the session. I do have some snacks and water available for you to enjoy as well.
Sit back and relax during your baby's session! Feel free to nap, read a book, or play games on your phone.We will take care of getting baby to sleep, posed, and wrapped. We will let you know if baby needs a meal break.
While uncommon, some poses may not be achievable depending on baby's age and flexibility. I do not guarantee any specific poses.
For newborn boys, if you plan to circumcise please plan the procedure a week before you bring your baby or for after the session. This is so baby can be comfortable and free of irritation during their session.
Overall please trust your photographer. I will have set-ups, hats, fabrics, etc. pulled for the session. The colors and styles will be based off of what you let us know you like.
Thank you for booking a session with Holly D. Photography.
I look forward to working with you for your newborn's session!
