A few tips for a successful newborn session | Fairfax Newborn Photographer

As a reminder, it is always a good idea to bring extras of these items to ensure a successful studio session: extra milk, diapers, clothes and a pacifier.  You can never be too prepared!  I would love for everything to go as smoothly as possible so help me help you.

Sometimes mistakes happen and the baby poops, so it’s always good to have something new to change into just in case! Dad and Mom were so excited for their first newborn session, they brought several cute outfits for baby. It was such an exciting photo session and we had an amazing time. The different outfits helps personalize the portraits more but just don’t bring too many outfits. Too many clothing changes baby will tend to make baby fussy. Don’t forget we also wrap baby, have baby semi-naked, and naked as well (only if you want).

What I love the most is when parents bring meaningful toys, grandmas quilt or sports paraphernalia for the session.
