What Happens During a Newborn Session? Belfast I Lisburn I Banbridge I Northern Ireland
Whether you are thinking about booking a newborn session or already have a date on the books, we are sure you are a bit curious about what, exactly, goes on during a newborn session. How do you get those peaceful looking images? How involved are the parents for the shoot itself? Is it actually possible to “pose” a newborn? Below we are pulling back the curtain about what actually happens during a newborn photography session.
The Heat is Turned Up
It sounds bizarre, but we prefer to set the temperature much higher during a newborn session than what you would normally have it. This helps baby feel warm, comfortable, and — most importantly, sleepy.
We Will Take Care of All the Poses
You don’t have to come up with poses or image ideas. We’ve got all that covered and know exactly how to set up an image to get great shots. We will also take care of all the prop setup and wrapping.
Mum and Dad Help Spot Baby
Though we do most of the work, we definitely need parents’ help during our shoots to help position baby and work with us to help create images.
Safety is Always Our First Priority
No matter what, we place your child’s safety above all else. If we need to take a break, we will. If a pose isn’t working, there is always another one to try.
We Have Tricks for Helping Baby Calm Down
We have done quite a few newborn sessions in our day, and we have a few tricks up our sleeve to help calm fussy babies. However, in the case of a baby who is very upset, we are more than happy to reschedule.
Sibling Photos are Done First or Last
We know that having your kids at the shoot for the entire session may be a bit much for them. For that reason, we suggest having sibling poses done either at the beginning or the end of the session, that way they don’t have to say throughout.
Composite Imagery is Done in Post Processing
We will often melt a couple different images into one in order to create the perfect shot. This technique is used by experienced photographers and ensures your newborn images are beautiful.
