Newborn session prep tips

How to get the most of your newborn session with Willow Oak Photography

Tip 1

Keep baby awake for 1-2 hours before session. That way baby is ready for a good nap. Sleepy babies are the best to photograph!

Tip 2

Dress baby in a button-up or zip-up outfit. Nothing that pulls on or off over baby's head. Pull off their shirt could wake them once we get them soothed to sleep.

Tip 3

If your session is happening in your home, make sure its nice and warm. Baby's are used to your body temps so the warmer they are the more comfortable they are.

Tip 4

Feed baby about 30 minutes before your session is going to start. We want full bellies and sleepy babies!

Tip 5

Kick back and relax for a little while. I'm going to be doing my best to capture beautiful images of your little one. This is a perfect opportunity to take some you time! You deserve it momma!

All these tips will help make sure we get the most of your session and capture this new little life in all its beauty.
