The moment your little baby is born is one of the most precious times in your life. The newborn infant quickly becomes the most important and beautiful person in your family. Such exceptional moments are really worth capturing. Think about photographs showing your cute sleeping baby, these lovely little feet or adorable expressions on the face. Take the opportunity of retaining the precious moments of the first days of your child.
Newborn sessions are usually done when a baby is less than two weeks old. This may seem soon, however you should know that this is the most appropriate and favourable time. First of all, this is the time when babies often stay in the foetal position and lie curled up. It looks cute and delicate in the photographs, and gives the impression of the baby’s newness in the pictures. Also, it is the period when the little bodies are plastic enough to put them in the desirable poses. Obviously, it is done without the smallest harm to the infant. Newborns sleep most of the time, which enables photographers to take precise pictures. And indeed a sleepy little infant is what many people love the most about newborn photography.
Newborn photography requires a lot of patience as well as knowledge of how to make babies safe during a session. I always want you and your baby to feel secure and comfortable during our meeting. That is why such sessions take place in your homes, in your baby’s natural surroundings. I’m flexible and creative, which is especially important with such delicate and unpredictable models as babies.
As far as the style of photography is concerned, newborn photos usually depict naked babies lying in various types of blankets. This is the most classic type of newborn photography which shows the beauty of a baby in different poses. Sometimes we can add some props, such as baskets, chairs or bowls to pose the baby. Also such objects as handmade woolly hats, various headbands or skirts for infants can be used to make the photos more attractive and unique. And they make a very endearing picture, too.
Newborn infants alter so quickly. Even a few days can bring about changes. Remember about the first days of your baby’s life – it is a crucial time if you want to have newborn photographs that you will cherish forever. In the article you can see some curly sleepy newborn photos as well as those focused on details, such as a baby’s tiny hand wrapped around a parent’s finger.
