Preparing For Your Newborn Session


Preparing For Your Newborn Session

The Woodlands Newborn Photography

They simply wanted a family. They faced the odds and against it all the twins are here- safe in their arms. 

Two tiny miracles. 

By the grace of a dear friend, they were able to conceive through the wonder of egg donation. Two became four and this family begins a journey that is forever connected, intertwined, and blessed.

The smiles never left their faces through the entire session. They cooed and oohed over every precious detail, laughed through the sticky situations and marveled at the incredible gifts that are their perfect twins. 

I pray that the miracle of these sweet souls will always take your breath away. 

This family did an amazing job, especially with twin, preparing for their newborn session. Keep scrolling for tips I send to my clients about how to prepare their baby.

How to prepare for your in-home newborn session

  • Try to keep baby awake for a while before your session time.

  • Wait to feed the baby until I arrive for your session.

  • Don't worry about baby acne or little scratches. While I do minor retouching, I do not do major skin smoothing. Embrace that peel, fresh newborn skin!

  • Try not have tight socks on their feet, they tend to leave sock lines at their ankles.

  • I may ask for help with propping or holding the baby in certain positions. Please understand that not every pose you imagined may be possible- it all depends on baby. I want to make sure baby is comfortable and safe above all else.

  • One last thing....No matter what your baby does, please know that I am always relaxed. I do this all the time and have seen everything. This session is supposed to be a special experience for you and I don't want you stressed if the baby starts to cry. I want you to enjoy the experience of your session and this special bonding moment for your family.
