Sleepy Baby Tips
THE most important factor in capturing quality newborn images is a sleepy baby. We must get the baby into a deep sleep in order to pose them and to get the most relaxed and sweet expressions. In order to do this, it takes a little work and planning on our part. Below is a list of things you should do the morning of your session to ensure the smoothest and most satisfying session experience. Please make your best effort to read and follow these suggestions. I promise it is worth the end result!
~ Keep your baby AWAKE as much as possible for 2 hours before your session. This may require undressing your baby, tickling their feet, etc…… Please make every reasonable effort to avoid a long nap 2 hours before your start time.
~ If you live 20 minutes or less away from me, give your baby a large feeding immediately before leaving. If you have a longer drive, plan on giving the baby a large feeding as soon as you arrive.
~ Dress your baby in something that does not need go over their head (snap up one piece’s are easiest) and avoid layers. Put the diaper on very loosely so their skin will not have marks.
~ If your baby takes a binky bring it along.
