Nampa Baby Photographer

Photographing Violet was such an absolute joy! If you were to ask me I would say that newborn sessions are my favorite type of sessions to photograph. Sweet little Violet might make me change my mind! When it came to smiles, snuggles, and laughs Violet was just precious. Towards the end of her session she was worn out and wanted a nap.

My favorite part of Violet’s session was all the funny things we did to get her to smile at us. Violet’s mom also brought her grandma along so we had a lot of reinforcements. Before her session, I had blown up some balloons so we could get her attention with them. I think that was one of the things that worked the most. Balloons will be now present for every baby session. It was so funny.

What to anticipate from your Baby Photography Session

I find that trying to anticipate things makes me life a lot less stressful and enjoyable. In order to help you all out, let’s chat about a few things you can see during your baby session. One of the most common comments I get is how quickly the session moves along. Your session can seem very quick from set up to set up and a little overwhelming. Sometimes parents are worried that we haven’t spent enough time of a set.

If you are concerned at all during your session about your set ups or the pace that we are moving please let me know. I am happy to stop and show you some of the images that we have captured and then you can tell me if you feel comfortable moving forward. As a Reno baby photographer, I want you to love the images we created.

One of the reasons why we move at a quicker rate is to photograph as many set ups as possible I would rather have 3 different backdrops or set up with smiling pictures in all of them but less of them. Rather than smiling pictures on one backdrop. It seems boring and not like you are getting your moneys worth.

Another thing to chat about is your baby will run out of steam. I recommend that you bring a clear drink and a snack so they can have a little break. Or if you are still nursing you are more than welcome to give your baby some time that way as well. If your baby is getting teeth or just recently got shots they will have a harder time with pictures and I recommend planning around those as well. Before your session I will send you some tips and tricks.
