Congratulations my lovelies! You must of either just had a baby or are expecting soon! So HUGE congrats on your new bundle of joy!
I like to keep my newborn images simple! Focus on your new baby, not many props, no funky poses, just plain white and beautiful.
I know most photographers have a huge range of poses but I only do what baby will allow me to. I would love to get the 'froggy' pose but that requires so much training I do not have and baby needs to be so sleepy to acquire this. I love the simpleness of a beautiful baby.
Baby can be awake or asleep for these images, as you can see some babies are content when awake so they stare into my camera maybe even a little smile perhaps (I say it's smiling not wind haha). These session usually lasts around 2-3 hours, depending how content baby is. I usually start with baby first and then siblings and then family images.
I have a special beanbag I use to get baby images and then if you would like family images too I will also bring my background to get those. During the baby images I do require quiet around us as to not disturb the baby.
These sessions are best done within the first 2 weeks of birth when they are most likely the sleepiest during the day but they can still be done up to 6 weeks.
