What you need to know about Newborn photography
A newborn photo shooting can only take place in the period between day 5 and day 14 of your baby’s life. In this time period, babies are mostly very sleepy and tend to have a very deep sleep, so we can easily arrange them into various body postures without bothering them. Also, at this stage, they have no milk spots yet, and their tummy is less likely to hurt.
It is advisable for you to book an appointment for the photo shooting 2-3 months before your baby is due to be born, as I can only do up to 5 NEWBORN photo shootings a week.
If we do family photos too, it is advisable that the family members wear simple clothes, of the same color, which look harmonious (e.g. black, white, blue or beige). Mums are suggested to wear a simple top with or without a shoulder strap, to make sure that the baby will stand out on the photo. And it’s a good idea to bring a second dress, just in case we have a little accident:-).
What you need to know about maternity photography
The most ideal timing to do maternity photos is the time period between week 28 and week 34 of your pregnancy. In this time period, your belly will be nice and curvy, but you can still move around easily. I have wonderful and uniquely designed dresses for the maternity photo shootings, which I can provide you with for no extra fee charged. Or you can bring your own clothes, if you like. It is suggested that you bring a black, a white, and (if you have one) a nude tone bra with you.
It is also a good idea to get a blow dry and a nice soft makeup before the photo shooting, if you have the chance, as you will certainly feel much better with it… :).
If we do family photos as well, it is suggested to coordinate what colors to wear, to look good on the photos.
