How to prepare for your newborn session

Newborn Photography, Springfield, MO

A Newborn Session will last approximately 1-2 hours, depending on changing and feeding periods and the session you chose. Planning for your session ahead of time is key to ensuring we are both prepared. There are a few ways in which you can help me achieve this:

  • Feed your baby once you arrive.

  • Dress your baby in a zip-up, or snap onesie or sleeper. (Avoid over-the-head clothing)

  • Bring extra milk. Newborns always use more energy during photo sessions and usually eat more than usual.

  • A pacifier is a very helpful in soothing your baby during the session.

It's important that you baby is sleepy at the beginning of our session so please try to keep baby awake 2 hours before our session so that your little one is ready to go to sleep once I get them wrapped. I do wrapped and partially wrapped sessions.

My commitment to you is to ensure your baby's safety through gentle handling and safe products used in my sessions. You can rest assured that your baby will be well cared for at all times. Please bring wipes and lotions that you use at home to ensure that we are not introducing baby to new allergens.
