It’s a good idea to book your newborn photoshoot as early as possible, as many photographers get booked up quickly. You may want to schedule your photoshoot for around the time you expect to be discharged from the hospital or birthing center, so you can go directly to the photoshoot after giving birth.
Before the photoshoot, it’s a good idea to discuss your vision and preferences with the photographer. This can help ensure that you get the types of photos you want, and it will also help the photographer prepare for the photoshoot. Some things you might want to discuss include:
- The location of the photoshoot (e.g., at the photographer’s studio or in your home)
- The style of the photoshoot (e.g., traditional, candid, posed)
- Any specific poses or shots you want to capture
- What to wear (e.g., solid colors, patterns, coordinating outfits)
It’s also a good idea to bring along any props or sentimental items you want to include in the photos, such as blankets, hats, or stuffed animals. With proper planning and communication, you can get beautiful, timeless photos of your newborn that you’ll cherish for years to come.
