A Guide to Your Newborn’s Photoshoot

Welcoming a newborn into your family is a beautiful and joyous occasion, and there’s no better way to commemorate these precious early moments than with a professional photoshoot. At BigShot Photo Studio, our experienced photographers specialise in handling and capturing the delicate beauty of your newborn. Here’s what to expect during your session and some tips to ensure a smooth and memorable experience.

Before the Photoshoot: Tips for Preparation

  1. Schedule Wisely: Book your newborn photoshoot within the first two weeks after birth. During this time, babies are sleepier and more easily posed.
  2. Feed Your Baby: Ensure your baby is well-fed before the session. A full stomach helps keep them calm and content, reducing the likelihood of fussiness during the shoot.
  3. Dress Comfortably: Dress your baby in loose-fitting clothes that are easy to remove without disturbing them too much. This makes the transition into different outfits smoother.
  4. Bring Comfort Items: Familiar items such as a favorite blanket, pacifier, or small toy can provide comfort to your baby in a new environment.

During the Photoshoot: What to Expect, Creating a Calm Environment

It’s common for babies to feel uneasy or uncomfortable in a new setting. Our photographers at Bigshot Photo Studio are experienced in handling newborns and employ several techniques to create a calm and soothing environment:

  • White Noise: We often use a hairdryer or play white noise through a mobile phone. The sound of white noise mimics what babies hear in the womb, helping them feel secure.
  • Swaddling: Swaddling your baby not only helps maintain their body temperature but also mimics the snug environment of the womb, providing a sense of security and calm.
  • Pacifiers: If your baby is particularly fussy, a pacifier can provide quick and effective comfort.

Handling Crying and Fussiness

It’s perfectly normal for newborns to cry during a photoshoot. Here are some techniques we use to soothe them:

  • Gentle Rocking: Our photographers are skilled in gently rocking and holding your baby to calm them down.
  • Breaks for Feeding and Cuddling: We understand that sometimes babies need a little extra care. We allow time for feeding and cuddling breaks to ensure your baby remains comfortable and happy throughout the session.
