There’s no better place to learn than from experienced people who have been there and succeed. And to do newborn photography, especially, you have to know beforehand what to do, because a lot of things can happen in a photography where the subject is a baby who had no experience of being posed, much less, a model photo shoot.
We will be learning about newborn photography Calgary today from Dulce Baby Photography and also several other tips on maternity shoots. Having the experience of taking, not just newborns, but also babies and maternity shots make it easier for him to relate to parents and at the same time in facing unique situations of the clients.
Advice your client
The best advice you can give is to book earlier and tell you when their due date exactly will be. Newborn photos have to be taken under 2 weeks of age to get the maximum image of the newborn. The longer they wait, the slimmer is the chance that the baby will remain the same (because they grow to… babies, like active, cheerful babies). Unless they are okay with it, there should also be various other packages to cater to their needs.
You can also tell them to have the babies well fed, even if they have their own schedule, because the photo shoot can only continue if the baby is calm and sleeping and it takes time for them to be so after feeding.
Maternity shoot should be taken at the last stage of pregnancy, which is around the 35th week. Later than that is also acceptable, but since there’s a chance for the due date to miss, we don’t want to risk it, do we.
They can also bring their own props or clothes they want their babies or newborns in.
Giving advices are hints that you know what you are doing and prepare your clients in facing the photo shoot sessions. Since these are moments that won’t come back and feels like only last for a split second, always tell yourself and them to never rush the photo shoot, especially with babies or during newborn photography Calgary. This way you can make sure that you are taking your time exploring the beauty and the possibilities you can use to create stunning images and pictures that the parents can show off to people.
Honest, positive testimonials and portfolios also work in building trust in your skills.
Some of the best way to show you are a professional is simply to be prepared. You know they will come, so instead of having your background laid around, you should have some ready and chosen. You should also prepare the accessories, and props that can be used. Providing refreshments for your clients are also one way to help them get through the hours of posing or waiting for the pictures taken.
Also configure the room temperature and set to be as comfortable as possible for either maternity shots or baby shots. Both subjects can easily get uncomfortable because babies are still sensitive and pregnant mothers can easily get grumpy and tired.
