Feed and burp.
It sounds so simple and it sounds like every bit a requirement but it is still so surprising how some parents can forget this. The results can be disastrous. Imagine getting the baby to pose for various poses and the like in the baby photography shoot and he suddenly ends up spewing milk all over the place. Just make sure that the baby burps after feeding him with milk so that he doesn’t cover the photographer and his camera in vomit.
A nice sponge bath.
Babies, especially those who are newborns, don’t have the best skins so far. They usually shed a lot and skin because they grow a lot. A gentle sponge bath will allow you to slough off all that dead skin without being too rough on the baby so far. More than that, it will make the baby feel fresh and clean and definitely less grumpy by the time that he gets to the baby photography shoot so far.
A few heirlooms and props. In order for you to make the baby photos come out looking a little more unique than the usual and not the same old run of the mill stuff you happen to see online, you need to personalize things a little more at some point or so. Perhaps it would be interesting for you to bring along that special onesie that grandma lovingly made by hand as a gift? Perhaps include a locket that happens to be a family heirloom at the same time? There are so many bits and bobs that you can incorporate in the photo shoot that you are setting out for in order for you to have everything set up the right way at the end of the day.
They tend to happen all of the time but even then, you need to understand the fact that this is the type of thing that turns out to be perfectly normal and you shouldn’t feel embarrassed about this or anything like that at all. You just need to know for sure that the moment that you set foot in the baby photography shoot, that you will be able to come in prepared at the end of the day. Bring along a nice set of wet wipes, tissues, perhaps even some powder and extra clothes and diapers. It might work out better for you if you bring along some extra clothes of your own at some point or so. You will never really know what is going to happen so always be ready for the worst when it all comes down to it. Do something about this in the nick of time and you are bound to save time as well as frustration when it comes to avoiding the possibility of stretching the photo shoot out far longer than it normally will if you weren’t on top of things. Get things taken care of early on and you will have a much easier time with your baby photography shoot so far.
