Checklist for Newborn Photo Session

Please dress your baby in loose, comfortable clothing to avoid any imprints on their delicate skin.  It’s also advisable to not secure the diaper tightly for the same reason. Bring a change of clothes for you, your spouse and your baby.  There may be a chance of accidents when parents are posing with their naked baby so an extra outfit will come in handy. Note, too, that the studio will be very warm to keep the baby nice and cosy, so keep that in mind when choosing your own clothing.

 
 

For Baby


Multiple Nappies - I may use extra nappies during the session


Wipes- for nappy changes and spit ups


Baby brush- If your baby has hair this is a must


Feeding supplies for at least 3 feeds- Babies tend to feed more due to sessions. They use a lot of energy and also may get thirsty


Soother- even if you don't intend on using a soother, it may be the key to getting those perfect photos if baby is unsettled


Feeding Cloths- For feeding and spit ups


Change of clothes - in case of leakage!

Blanket- I will wrap baby in his/her blanket at feeding time

For Family


Snacks & Drinks - Sessions are usually at 10am so you may not have had time for breakfast. Feel free to bring your breakfast along. Also it is important to have snacks for siblings. The studio is warm so water is a must


Change of clothes for everyone- Accidents happen and while we usually remember to bring a change for the kids, it is important to remember a change for parents too. 


Him: Black Tshirt- I like to do a simple parent shot so a plain black T is perfect


Her: Black thick strap vest- I like to do a simple parent shot so a vest is perfect. Thick strap to hid bra strap


Entertainment for siblings- the session can be up to 3 hrs long. Siblings will get bored easily if they have nothing to do. I provide a few puzzles and colouring pages but you might want to bring something also.
