Newborn Skin Issues and Photography – Olympia Newborn and Baby Photographer

There is a common concern that I hear from parents when they call to book their newborn photography session and that is that their brand new baby is having a little skin issue. A baby has very sensitive skin and sometimes they will develop baby acne {little white bumps on their face) not too long after they are born. They can also still be a little jaundiced at the time of their session or have developed a little contact dermatitis, like a little rash, because their new skin is just so very sensitive to the world around it. Babies can also accidentally scratch their faces with their sharp little fingernails. Some parents wonder if they should wait or reschedule due to a skin issue and my answer is that there is no reason to postpone your baby’s session due to any skin issue that is going on. It is more important to capture how tiny they are in those days right after they are born and let me worry about making any and all skin issues disappear and the end result will be that all you will see is your beautiful little baby. When you come in to your proof showing, you will not even remember that your baby had anything going on with baby acne, little scratches or that they were a bit jaundiced; your baby is and will be absolutely gorgeous. When you look at your pictures you will notice their cute little nose, their long eyelashes and their rosy cheeks and you will forget all about your concerns about any little skin issue that you had. Let me take care of everything!

The little one in the picture in this blog post had a red, rashy form of baby acne. Her mother mentioned her concerns to me about this and was worried that maybe her newborn photography session would have to wait. I reassured her that everything would be okay and that I would take care of her sweet baby’s skin and the pictures from her session are just magical!!
