"What happens if my baby doesn't behave?" is a question I am asked over and over again with newborn photography, and yes it does happen from time to time, your baby isn't bad behaved... it is a baby and doing what babies do.
A skilled baby photographer will have a back up plan in place should your baby arrive to their photography studio unsettled for whatever reason.
A few reasons your baby may not be settled on their photoshoot day:
Babies have growth spurts frequently and this can disturb your baby's feeding routine - you may notice they cluster feed quite often and are a lot more alert, this is your baby growing and trying to take more milk for their growth.
These growth spurts can affect the session only by the extra feeds and settling, and each session is totally baby lead just in case this happens.
When you book your newborn photography session with me, we have an initial phone consultation (either before or when your baby has arrived).
With my preparation guide I discuss handy hints & tips on preparing for your appointment, and send you a guide to your email address. Reading and following the guide means we will get the most from your session on the day.
I have a selection of 'go too' poses I do during a newborn session if baby is unsettled or having lots of 'awake time' I will work this into your photography session until your baby is ready to nap. Some babies just prefer a lot more cuddles than others, and they can also pick up on tension and stress so please try and relax during your photoshoot.
