Newborn photoshoots are a great way to capture the precious first few weeks of your baby’s life. But planning a newborn photoshoot can be a bit daunting, especially if you’re a first-time parent. Here’s a guide to help you plan the perfect newborn photoshoot:
The best time to schedule a newborn photoshoot is within the first 5-10 days of your baby’s life. This is when babies are still very sleepy and easy to pose. After 10 days, babies start to become more alert and active, which can make it more difficult to get good photos.
For your newborn photoshoot, you’ll want to choose simple, classic clothing that won’t distract from your baby’s beauty. Avoid anything too busy or patterned. Neutral colors like black, cream, and gray are always a good choice.
Newborn photoshoots can take anywhere from 3-5 hours, so it’s important to be prepared. Bring a comfortable outfit for yourself.. You may also want to bring a breast pump or formula if you’re breastfeeding or bottle-feeding.
Before your photoshoot, be sure to ask your photographer about their experience with newborn photography. You’ll also want to ask about their rates packages.
Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your newborn photoshoot:
Newborn photoshoots are a wonderful way to capture the memories of your baby’s early days. By following these tips, you can ensure that you have a photoshoot that you’ll cherish for years to come.

I am married to the love of my life who has recently retired from the Army. We are back “home” after being away for 21 years. We have 3 young boys and 1 daughter who is pursuing her college career. As a photographer, I specialize in the newborns and maternity portraits. I just love the amazing process of pregnancy and then having that sweet, new bundle of joy to love. Capturing all that is so important and I feel so blessed to be a part of this special time in my client’s lives.
