Planning a Newborn Session | Boston Newborn Photographer

Our Lifestyle Newborn Sessions are for parents seeking timeless family keepsakes of welcoming their newborn baby. We focus on tiny details, sweet expressions, and the beautiful bond with family. In these laid back sessions, newborn baby is comfortably swaddled and can be awake or asleep. Newborns are best photographed within the first two weeks of birth.

In our experience, a naked newborn photographs best. Newborn clothing rarely fits their little bodes, Babies seem to get swallowed up by clothes. Besides, the goal of this session is to remember those tiny little features! 

Props: We have a selection of props we will bring for you to choose from. We have a large selection of baskets, blankets, hats, headbands and a few costumes. However we love it when clients incorporate some of their personalities into a shoot. Receiving blankets, handmade gifts, special mementos or classic stuffed animals and toys are always welcome. 

Feeding: We will likely be taking one or two long breaks for feedings and changing. We suggest you have supplies on hand such as extra bottles, formula, burp clothes and pacifiers. 

Relax: We know how challenging having a newborn is. Once we arrive we typically take it from there. Relaxed parents have more fun and your baby will respond to that energy. Our goal is to focus on capturing a series of portraits of your newborn baby alone. We also want to include parents and siblings too. Typically the day of a session we will do the newborn first then incorporate family towards the end of the session.
