What Should I Do To Prepare For My Newborn’s Session?

You need to make sure that about 1-2 hours prior to the session you turn the heat up in your house to at least 80 degrees (or higher!). Breast milk has a high fat content in the morning which will help baby sleep deeper so if you can cluster feed or try to push the feeding so it is ending as we arrive for the session. If your baby is formula fed, again try to finish the feeding as we arrive and maybe see if baby will take a little extra. Lastly, about an hour before we arrive be sure to take all of baby’s clothes off and just keep a cloth diaper/burp cloth wrapped around baby’s bottom to catch any tinkle or potty. This way baby’s skin will be nice and smooth for pictures! A warm, fed, dry baby makes a nice relaxed sleepy baby; perfect for pictures!
