A gassy baby will not pose well during the session due to their little tummy being upset. Please avoid dairy products- milk, cheese, yogurt, pudding, cream, or any food that has milk, milk products, casein, whey, or sodium casein it, as well as foods with caffeine, soy, fish, peanuts, chocolate, wheat, beef, nuts, eggs, corn, or citrus fruits *If baby happens to be gassy the day of your session, Oval or Gripe Water can be used to help ease baby’s discomfort.
32) How to prepare the newborn baby for a successful photo shoot? Please interact with baby 1-2 Hr before the photo shoot. The baby has to be tired and sleepy. The procedure will help us to focus on photography and not on getting your baby a sleep. I would suggest using a warm bath or “naked time”. These trick can help a lot during the photo shoot. Please feed baby just before you leave the studio, to make sure he has a full belly. We don’t recommend to feed the baby at our studio as baby wakes up and need a time for falling back in deep sleep.the baby should be fed as much as possible in the 8 hours before newborn photography session. This will allow for the baby to sleep as deeply and as long as possible.
We suggest ignoring strict feeding schedule for the 2.5 hours at the session. We can capture flexible poses is if the newborn baby is fully satiated and sleeping. I would rather have you give the baby an extra feeding than have you worry that baby isn’t sleeping and we’re missing out on some cute poses. Please dress baby in loose fitting clothes to avoid any lines on baby’s skin and to also avoid disturbing baby when getting undressed. A simple sleeper is best. Please avoid onesies or anything that has to be pulled off over baby’s head.
