[FAQ] Information for Newborn Sessions

Planning a newborn session can be a little bit of a daunting idea – however, remember to ask questions, get plenty of information and then moving forward you are prepared to get the best newborn pictures from your session.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions.

What should baby wear?

The majority of the newborn sessions at Blue Lights Photography, are done whilst they are naked.
I normally suggest to bring them in a sleepsuit/romper suit so there isn’t any elastic marks etc on babies skin.
In the studio we have a lot of props, baskets, blankets – so do not worry about getting things getting wee’d and poo’d on! 

Do I need to bring my own props?
Unless it is something which is sentimental to you – then no – you do not need to bring your own props.
If you like something on our website, or facebook page, then let us know beforehand as I will be able to inform you if I have that prop available.

How should I prep baby? 
There isn’t much things that you have to do for prepping baby for their newborn session.
If the baby has dry skin, try and avoid using any type of oil or lotion on it, as this can make baby shiny, and shine is harder to work with than dry skin. 

Make sure babies belly is full – even if it means trying to time a feed for when you arrive at the studio.
Full tummy babies are happy sleepy babies, and this is the best type to make sure we get the cute squishy photographs!

If your little one does wake at any point – then as long as baby is happy, and settled, then we will get some awake shots too.

How long do sessions last?
We always work at babies pace – so sometimes sessions will not always last the same amount of time.
Every baby is different, and we have to take feed’s and cuddles into consideration.
Sessions tend to last between 2 and 4 hours.
