Newborn baby photoshoot

Are you a new parent or are you expecting? Then it’s time for you to consider booking a newborn baby photoshoot for your family. As a new parent you will have a lot of things going on. Having a newborn baby is really hard work. If you’re not yet a parent just wait for it. At the same time though, this will be one of the most rewarding periods in your life which should be captured with a family photoshoot with newborn. Probably hard to imagine on forehand. Perhaps also even sometimes hard to recognise when you have a crying baby in your arms refusing to fall asleep.

Did you just recently give birth to a little one? There is something so special about that moment, that you can’t explain in words. That’s why when someone says, a picture is worth a thousand words, it’s true. Having my daughter in my arms for the very first time, wow! There was a sudden joy, relaxation and a total blissfulness. I felt complete. I never thought I would ever feel like this or experience this moment ever again.

Once the baby is sleeping peacefully, you as a parent will be able to enjoy a blissful moment admiring the wonders of life. In order to save and treasure these special times you should not miss out on booking a photoshoot for yourself and your child. By hiring Studio Milla’s professional photographers to do a newborn baby photoshoot with you, you will get a beautiful collection to remember these times. That children grow up so fast is common talk amongst parents. But it really is true. Especially in the early stages the baby will grow so quickly that soon it won’t be a baby anymore.

It’s so important to capture those firsts

There will be a lot of firsts in your child’s life. The first word, the first step, the first day of kindergarten and so on. These will all be special times that will fill your heart with joy. But as a parent, especially if it’s also your fist child, the first months will be a very unique time. Therefore, you should not forget to get some lasting memories from this period. And what better way than to make a booking with us for a newborn baby photo session in London.

Perhaps you are worried about how your little gem will handle the newborn baby photoshoot. Don’t be! We have lots of experience working with children of all ages. Making your child feel comfortable is the number one priority. After all, we are striving for beautiful pictures that will bring you joy to look at. A peacefully sleeping newborn baby. Just look at those little feet…

Things you can do to prepare

If you want to make sure that your newborn baby photoshoot goes smoothly there are some things you can do to prepare. For example, it is a good idea to make sure that your child is well fed before the photo shoot. All of us can be a bit cranky when we are hungry right? However newborn babies who are hungry and tried can be a nightmare. So, make sure that the baby is fed relatively soon before the actual photo shoot.

Quite often newborn babies tend to fall asleep soon after they have eaten. This is the time that you should use for the newborn baby photoshoot. A well-fed baby sound asleep should not cause you any problems during the photo shoot. Although, if you want to put some special outfit on your baby, remember to do that first. You don’t want to wake the little one up.

Of course you can also try to go for newborn photos with a bit more action. Obviously in this case, it’s not a good idea to feed your newborn immediately before the photo shoot. If you do that, the baby will almost certainly be too tired. It can be a bit of a patience game to get the best shots here. What you want is for the baby to smile and have a bit of sparkle in the eyes. Whether looking directly into the camera or interacting with one of the parents.

More ideas that can help

If there is a special toy that your newborn baby particularly enjoys to sit with, it’s also a good idea to use it. If this is not your first child, you can also consider involving the elder siblings to the newborn baby photoshoot. A two year old boy admiring his little sister for instance. Later on these pictures will be lovely souvenirs to have. Not just for you as a parent but also for the children, as they won’t remember anything from these earliest of times.

Another important thing to consider when planning your newborn baby photo shoot, is whether to do colour or black and white. We do love black and white lifestyle newborn photographs as they are classic and timeless. So almost all of our newborn photoshoots come with black and white style.

The type of photos that you get from a black and white photo shoot tend to  have a more artistic look than colour photos. With the right light and right contrast these photos can almost become little works of art. Artworks for your private family collection. That being said though, with colour photos you can create a beautiful warm atmosphere that black and white can never give.
