We’ll want to assess this specifically for your shooting location. 🙂
NEWBORN SESSIONS: Typically INDOORS. We find that newborns are most comfortable at a warm indoor environment. If we shoot outside will not be able to do any cute “naked baby” photos and we also take the risk that your newborn may not be happy in the elements!
The best indoor locations have large windows (or glass doors) with BRIGHT + INDIRECT sunlight.
We want to use the ambient light but do not want direct sunlight shining in the room at the time of the session. Take a look at your nursery/bedroom and when it’s brightest time of day without direct sun in the room and let us know.
The only “rule” we have is VARIETY! Gone are the “GAP” days with everyone coordinated in white tees and jeans 🙂 Instead, we love seeing color and personality. The key is: coordinating colors.
Find a way to coordinate without looking too “matchy”. While you don’t want to look like twins/triplets, you do want the look to feel balanced. One thing to remember is you don’t have to wear the same exact color. The same color family would work well too (example: bold purple and light purple). Style-wise, make sure you both match the overall “feel” of your look.
Accents photograph amazingly. Here are some ideas:
It’s generally recommended to have several different outfits for a baby. Sometimes no clothes is needed at all for the cutest infant photos. But collect a few options to choose from. You will not change your outfit, but they might!
– Newborn clothing (shoes/onesies)
– Floral crown
– Handwritten signs (Coming soon, Baby’s name)
– Letter blocks
– Floral frame around baby (see examples here) All you need is a simple bouquet of flowers from the store, and we’ll arrange it!
– Stuffed animals
– Family heirlooms
– Nostalgic items from your hometown/favorite teams
– Swaddle blankets
– Favorite hobby items (musical instruments, movie memorabilia)
Many couples have a professional hair and makeup appointment before the shoot!
