Relaxing photography session and your newborn baby – are you not too sure those two things can go together? Well, I am here to let you know that yes, it is true, they can go together and it happens all the time here at Fairies and Frogs Photography. Yep! The key to having a relaxing and stress fee newborn photography session is to prepare your baby for his or her photo session and to prepare yourself as well and I will help you do both of those things (don’t worry!).
When you book your newborn photography session you will receive a Welcome letter that will have tips to help you get your baby ready for their photo session. There are just a couple of things that are very easy that you can do before your session to help get baby all set for pictures.
Okay, believe it or not, getting your sweet baby session ready is the easy part LOL! The tricky part is how to prepare yourself. The first thing to do is be comforted in the knowledge that I have been photographing and working with and creating beautiful newborn art for 17 years. There is pretty much nothing that will surprise me or throw me for a loop…I have been spit up on, pooped on, peed on, soothed colicky babies and breezed through sessions where the baby sleeps the whole session (this hardly ever happens just so you know LOL!). You can be confident that you have found a photographer that knows babies and knows them extremely well :) That being said, now it’s your turn to relax and to try to stay relaxed the morning of your session. If you are relaxed your baby will be relaxed as well. Babies feel and sense everything. Let’s give you a scenario for stress…you are on your way to your newborn session and your baby is crying the whole ride in the car and you are running late – stay relaxed!! I am a mom, I know how hard it can be to be anywhere on time when you have a new little sweetie (just text me and let me know your on the way, it’s not a problem at all!!) and as soon as you arrive for your session your baby will calm down, get fed, changed and fall asleep. Then, we will get started creating all of those beautiful pictures you have dreamed about! Relaxed Momma = Relaxed Baby :)
Also, we only do a limited amount of newborn sessions per month and only one newborn session per day. Some newborn sessions go quick and some sessions the baby needs a little more time to get cozy and comfortable and content. We don’t ever schedule back to back newborn sessions because we want every family to relax with the knowledge that no one will be knocking on the door or standing around waiting for their session to end. That is stress! As you can tell, I am not a fan of stress, so that situation won’t happen at Fairies & Frogs!
