Newborn Photography Preparations

Our newborn sessions

Those looks doesn’t last more than two weeks, in fact, from the tenth days onward, some of you may start seeing some changes in your baby. This is the reason why most families are doing newborn photography to preserve the ‘first look’ which connects to the first time you wrap your baby in your arms.

Our newborn photography session provides a variety of images for you and your family, including any pawpaw friends.

Props and setup are done within the first thirty minutes with a session talk to help you understand how we handle your baby.

Keeping your baby comfortable is our priority!

Getting ready for our newborn photography session

Stay with your routine feeding

Food is the most basic source for energy and keeping warm. For newborn babies to be sleeping through their photography session, it is most important to keep them well fed. Understanding your baby is about knowing how much your baby is drinking at each intervals be it 2~3 hourly.

In newborn photography session, it is different from the usual day to day feeding routine because your baby is brought out from his swaddle. And he will be awaken because of temperature difference. A well fed baby will resume sleep very quickly, going through the photo session. On the contrary, a baby will show signs of discomfort if he felt cold because he wasn’t fed adequately for his body to build up energy and heat.

For newborn photo session to work well, we recommend the use of bottle during the photo session. This will not make any changes to your baby habits or stop your baby from latching after the photo session. By default, a five hours session with us only require two feedings.

Your baby and development

Photographing newborn

Keep them away from air-con and fans

When your baby is still in your womb, your amniotic fluid regulates your baby’s body temperature. It is important to know that newborn baby below two weeks of age aren’t able to regulate their body temperature as well which is why they were swaddled.

In newborn photography sessions, babies are not swaddle, thus it is not recommended to turn on any fans or air-conditioner.
