Newborn photography sessions are very special and unique for they are much more than a photo session. It is your first family experience with the baby and, for this reason, we will take special care of every small detail; from the moment you enter our studio until you receive the photographs. We want to capture your baby’s first days of life so you can remember them forever. We will photograph their first expressions and signs of tenderness, before they pass by, always faster than we expect.
WHEN TO SCHEDULE YOUR SESSION?
The best time to photograph a newborn is when the baby is 5 to 15 days old. After these first few weeks, the babies start to abandon their fetal position, it’s harder to settle them down and they tend to be more awake and aware of their surroundings. Also, things like colics or baby acne start to show. When a baby is premature, the timings change and we can schedule the newborn session later. The baby’s health is the priority in that case and we have to wait until he or she gains enough weight.
WHERE AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Newborn photography sessions always take place in our studio in Barcelona. Here you will find a cozy space with natural light and a perfect temperature for your baby. The first few days of your baby’s life are amazing but also pretty hectic and the nights are hard. For this reason, you will find a comfortable space in our studio with all the amenities for you to enjoy the experience. These sessions are the longest and take around 2 to 3 hours because we depend on the baby’s rhythm. We will spend most of the time calming the baby down, getting him/her back to sleep, nursing, soothing… Nonetheless, don’t panic if the baby will not sleep because we want to capture him/her in the most natural way possible. We will position de baby in an innate and relaxed way.
CAN OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS PARTICIPATE?
Of course! We will photograph the newborn but we will also take pictures with the parents and siblings, if there are any. If the siblings are very young, we recommend that they don’t stay for the whole session because it is pretty long and they can get bored and irritable, altering the rhythm of the session.
You can book your newborn session whenever you like but try to do it at least a few months before so that we can assure our availability. We will put your due date in our calendar to ensure your spot but please make sure to contact us the day the baby is born or the day after so we can book an actual date and time. Please leave your contact details and we will get in touch with you to give you more information.
