I get asked so many times how we’re able to get images with baby sleeping the whole session!! Truth is, some sessions little ones sleep for a very short amount of time;). We try our best to have parents follow a few helpful hints prior to the session to increase the chances of baby being as sleepy as possible when they arrive to the studio. Bathing baby, having sibling time, tickling toes are just a few but of course keeping a newborn awake can sometimes be a challenge! We also make sure that Mom avoids gassy foods & caffeine if she is breastfeeding (I get it, this is plain mean for a sleep-deprived mama!!). Sometimes she follows all these notes and her little one just wants to party at the studio;). Either way, we make sure that everything is ready to go before our clients arrive. If babe arrives asleep, we can start the session right away which will increase the number of set-ups we’re able to complete. This little guy only had brief sleepy times but we were still able to get a full gallery. Mom chose a white-on-white set up, so perfect to contrast with his beautiful head of hair. And of course a cheeky awake one just for fun!
