One of the most interesting things about doing Decatur newborn photography, is that every baby is different! Some come to me and sleep the entire time, some come and fight sleep for close to 3 hours! They’re all totally adorable little miracles for certain! Miss Amelia came to me when she was nearly 3 weeks old, which can sometimes be on the older side for trying posed newborn photography. True to being a typical 4th child, this little girl came sleepy and slept the entire time. She was so snuggly and adorable!
Planning your newborn session
During a typical newborn session, as a Decatur Newborn Photographer, I will attempt several different poses, props, and angles while photographing a baby. My first concern is always the safety of the baby. I will never force a pose or position on a baby that they are not comfortable with. My studio is always nice and toasty, so that the babies are not uncomfortable without clothes on. Most newborn photography sessions last between 2-3 hours. This is to make sure baby has plenty of time to snack and snuggle with mom and dad if needed. I have everything I need in my studio as far as lighting, props, blankets, extra pacifiers, diapers, and wipes. My goal for your newborn session is for you to be able to sit back and relax while I photograph your adorable little one.
I am also trained in newborn posing. I have attended out of town workshops, and watched first hand while some of the best photographers in my industry photograph newborn babies. We learned safety first, and then posing and handling brand new babies. Please remember, whether you book me, or another photographer for your newborn photos, that if a pose looks like something a newborn baby isn’t capable of doing, they probably didn’t do it! Many times, 2 photos are taken, and blended into one. Please make sure that your photographer knows how to do this, and will not put your baby at risk to get an impossible image.
