Newborn photography is so important. It captures that amazing time that really does go so fast. Now that you’ve booked your Whitby newborn photography session, what do you need to do to prepare? Here are some tips for making the most of your photography session.
With the help of your photographer, you’ll be able to find the perfect wardrobe to showcase you and your new baby. Lifestyle newborn photography sessions focus heavily on the special bond between you and your little one, so expect to be in many pictures! Neutral colours always photography beautifully and have a timeless look. It can be as simple as jeans and a neutral sweater, or you can go all out with a beautiful dress (You can see the dresses available for all my sessions here, or you can always rent a spectacular gown through Sugarbump Gown rentals.) As for baby, a simple onesie is often perfect, or even just a diaper. Some photographers will wrap your baby up nice and cosy, so that’s one less thing to worry about!
Guess what – you don’t need much! At the newborn stage there really isn’t much that your baby really needs. Diapers, wipes, a change of clothes. Bottles/formula if you’re formula feeding. No matter what you are planning on wearing to your session, I would definitely suggest bringing it with you and changing there. If you plan on wearing a dress provided by your photographer, even better! Babies tend to have a knack for spitting up or having a blow-out at the least handy times so it’s best to be prepared!
This is one thing you don’t have to worry about, and you can guarantee you’ll feel gorgeous for your photographs. I work with many different hair and make-up artists, many of whom will come to the studio. There’s no better feeling than being pampered before your photography session.
