What is involved in a Newborn Photography Session?
I am frequently asked this by mom’s and dad’s who are interested in capturing images of their little one. A newborn photography session with Kim Coffin Photography (me) is very relaxed and slow paced shall we say. We run completely on newborns schedule…if baby wants to eat, we eat…have a cuddle, we cuddle, get a new bum, we get a new bum.
It is also a time for the mom to sit back and relax while I do the work, I might need her for a pose or two, but most of the time she gets to relax and enjoy. I recommend that mom bring a book, magazine, snack and a coffee. She is always a few feet away, but this is a little pampering time for the new mom as well.
I schedule 2-4 hours for a newborn photography session, sometimes baby is very cooperative and we have all the images we want in 2 hours, however generally we use at the 3-4 hour time slot.
Why do you recommend 5-12 days old for newborn photography?
*Generally they aren’t colicky yet
What else do I need to know? (little things for mom…)
