The person to capture your beautiful baby would have to be a capable

When choosing this person, pay great attention to their style, demands
and personality, because they will surely reflect in your newborn’s portraits.
Once you have taken to an art style and chosen your photographer, make
sure you book them in fast.
As newborn photographers are highly sought after, and often booked out
3 to 6 months, you will need to book within the first or second trimester of
your pregnancy in order to get your chosen photographer and the best time
The optimal time for photographing newborns is within the first two
weeks of arrival, or around the 4-14 day mark.
During this time, the child is naturally pliable and curled in fetal
position; this is the time frame you should aspire towards.
Most photographers will allow some leeway due to early and late arrivals;
however, it is essentially to contact your photographer within 48 hours of the
birth or as soon as possible to secure a session.
On the day of the shoot, newborns need to be fed prior to the session
in order for them to remain asleep throughout the session.
Sentimental knickknacks, clothing or props can be bought in, although
usually the studio provides adequate material.
