Singapore Newborn Photographer | Little Akito from Japan

Singapore Newborn Photographer

As a Singapore newborn photographer for the last 9 years, the most memorable experiences still come from cultural exchange. Yes, I meant it, it is an interesting thing to learnt from one another and sometimes these exchange helps to build a harmonious society which is very important for the future generation.

So here is my story with Little Akito and his family.

When I first arrived at their place, I was overwhelmed by their hospitality because Maki-san came down personally to get me, so you can imagine how I felt. And when I reached their residence, I was totally awe because it is really very well kept and clean. I know this may sound normal but if you agree with me, a family who just had a newborn baby at home, you will probably have things here and there. My home is probably a disaster in comparison, with my props everywhere!

As I begin to unpack my stuffs for the setup, their family render a lot of help which makes my life so easy! And the best part, they have everyone seated for my session chat. It is something that I started practicing since 2011. The purpose of having a session chat is to help clients understand how the process flow for our newborn photography session. In addition, I usually take this chance to reiterate how newborn babies are handled which is adapt from the parent craft course. I always believe that it is good to maintain some standard practices which is common and useful for parents.

Our newborn session with Little Akito was really smooth, because he just dozed off after nursing. And we had a little bit more surprised when we were rounding up the session with a few more family photographs. This is when we saw him smile in his daddy’s arm!

We ended the photo session with Little Akito smiling!

Ending the session with a baby smiling in his daddy arm really makes my day, but seeing the delight on their faces give me a personal satisfaction. While I was leaving their residence, we were all bowing non-stop and I was totally immersed by this polite culture!

If you are following my Instagram, you will probably know that I brought my younger daughter during delivery and she got a Hello Kitty Sanrio envelope that she kept like some treasure in her secret shelf!

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.

If you are first time parents, you can read more about food and immunity for newborn baby in our article below:

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.

She’s the little one who smile twice during her newborn session and her baby shower. It is a pleasure to be their photographer because I get to capture her smile two times when she was a newborn.

But that’s not all, she had another smiley shot with her paw paw friend!

For newborn baby, smiling is not something that is predictable however there’s tell tale signs before they smile. And this is Illia – well fed and satisfied!

Newborn sessions are very different as compared to the daily care that is needed, because baby are taken out of their comfortable swaddle and dress in baby costume. Usually if they don’t make a fuss, it is still possible to continue with the photo session. However it will be impossible, if you are expecting baby to be wide open and cooperating.

Little Sage smile through her newborn photography session following Little Zach’s photo shoot.

And it is really pleasing because it is so hard to have newborn baby who smile naturally for a few times during the photo session. Although our session looks lengthy with a 5 hours duration, it is the best for newborn because we need that constant breaks to ensure they are given the maximum comfort during the photography session.

Newborn photography is taken between the 5th to 10th days period because their looks doesn’t last more than two weeks. Most families who have missed the newborn session for their first child, know how precious it is!

The second reason why we take newborn during this period is because they usually follow a routine of going to sleep after being fed.

Last but not all, sleeping baby always look sweet!

Thankful that the session works well, and we have received a honest feedback from Little Sage’s parents!
