A Brief Guide To New Born Photography

Babies are an unconditional love for their parents. They are the most beautiful creations of God and prized possessions of any parent. Babies are like puny and cute dolls. They will never remain the same in the future. So missing out on photography of a just arrived baby is a matter of shame.

A baby’s age matters a lot while posing them for a photography session and it depends whether they will even like it or not. It is the age which dictates how the photography session will run. It is easy in case of younger babies because they can be placed in a curly pose. They don’t mind to have their clothes off for a photoshoot. Expert photography services in Sydney recommend parents to schedule a session when the babies are around 14 days old or so. During this time, they are more likely to curl up in a beautiful womb-like position and keep sleeping for a longer time.

Babies more than a couple of weeks

Some parents want to book a session with their baby who is more than 14 days old. In such cases, a curl up pose for the baby is difficult and the child might mind if the clothes are taken off. Therefore, parents must focus on taking images with their baby dressed, awake, nicely tucked in a basket or held in hand. These shots come fantastic with older babies (more than 14 days) as most of the time they stay awake. The photographers may reschedule a session if the first one does not go well. Although this is not a regular occurrence, the reason for a failed session is most likely due to an unsettled tummy of the baby or maybe other issues. As a result, parents should bear in mind the reasons for the failure of the first photography session and must rectify them in the second one.

Safety tips for photographing

Baby’s safety must be the top priority while photographing. Make sure the photographer remove all kinds of jewelleries from the baby’s reach. He or she should also file their nails smoothly to avoid scratches and must sanitise their hands continuously, but not once. When a bucket or basket is being used make sure that the studio provides a ten-pound sandbag weight at the bottom. A photographer should never force the baby for a pose if the baby does not like it. If a parent has a baby boy, it is suggested not to arrange the session a day or two post the circumcising process. Always schedule your session after a week of circumcising. Photographing of a baby requires not just class, but also a caring and comfortable environment.

Last but not the least, it is also important to find a good photography studio that has a reputation for providing effective new born photography services.
