Best Time For Baby Photoshoot

Best Time For Baby Photoshoot

All right, so you are blessed with a life full of happiness recently and spending an wonderful time with the little one. It is extremely heartwarming to see the little one doing a variety of activities all the day.
Days are passing by and the little kiddo is growing up every day. Just yesterday you saw and confirmed that the little one looks exactly like the father and today you saw again to find that, no it looks like her mother. It’s an amazing time you are passing through.
Now, when you realized it’s also important to capture photographs with the little munchkin before it’s too late. So, when should you go for the photoshoot, what will be the best time for an exquisite photo session is a million-dollar question.
We will look for an answer to this in this article.

There are majorly 3 types of baby photoshoot within the first 1 or 1.5 years of the baby.

1. Newborn Session (Within 20-25 days of birth)
2. Matured Newborn Session (Within 3-6 months)
3. Sitter Session (Within 8-18 months)

Newborn Session (Within 20-25 days of birth):

1. Amazing and lifetime memories with the little munchkin
2. Fantastic content for Insta/Facebook posts, stories to announce the childbirth
2. The baby doesn’t move or hinders the photo session if shoot is carried out within 15-20 days
1. Difficult for new moms to bring their newborn to photo studio in so early stage.
2. The babies look & face change a lot afterwards, hence it’s tricky to emotionally connect to those images later
3. No chance of making the baby smile with any activities (Unless the baby smiles on its own)
4. Photos captured mostly with eyes closed
5. Sometimes it’s challenging to make the baby sleep during the shoot and sleep is mandatory for newborn shoots.

2. Siting, standing photographs are out of scope, hence variety of photos will be less
3. The babies look & face change a lot afterwards, hence it’s tricky to emotionally connect to those images later
