How to Look Good

 

  • Use a wash cloth to clean away flaky skin and eye boogers.

 

  • Trim those tiny fingernails and toenails with appropriate baby trimmers.

 

  • Book your shoot around your baby’s feeding and nap times, work with the natural rhythm of your baby.

 

  • The perfect time to shoot is right when the baby would be laying down for a nap. If your baby normally falls asleep after a feeding, wait to feed the baby until you’re at the shoot.

 

  • Baby photographers allot plenty of time for this sort of thing to set up the best situation for great photos.

 

  • Dress up paper diapers. Cloth diapers are classy and stylish, but if you don’t use them, bring bloomers or decorative diaper covers, solids preferred.

 

  • Nothing is the best wardrobe for a newborn – no outfit fits a newborn well, and they often look swallowed in clothes.

 

  • Accessories are good, though – little hats, dainty headbands, boys in crocheted hats, etc. Bring sentimental items like the quilt that Grandma made for the baby, a baby blanket from your own childhood – they’re great for the youngster to lay on.

 

  • If your baby takes a pacifier, bring it – if they’re bottle fed, bring an extra bottle to help put the baby to sleep.

How to Look Good

 

  • Clean nails, clean hair, wipe away eye boogers, clean feet, wipe snotty noses, fresh-scrub teeth.
  • The cleaner the kid, the better their photos will turn out. If your child is still in diapers or pull-ups, tuck’em in or wear bloomers.
  • If your child is still of napping age, make sure they nap before the shoot.

 

  • It is perfectly okay to bring bribes to a photo shoot – given a stage and being the center of attention, it’s like our kids know exactly when to act their worst. Some cereal, smarties or other candy that won’t stain teeth can help a short photo shoot go by smoothly.

 

  • Avoid colorful drinks or lollypops within 24 hours of your shoot, don’t let them eat or drink anything that will stain their face, teeth or mouths.

 

  • Wardrobe – For girls, you can’t go wrong with cute dresses, rompers, and dainty hats or headbands.

 

  • For boys, jeans and polos or a button-up shirt, or a T-shirt with a button-up over it can be very cute, as well as overalls on the right age and personality.

 

  • For siblings, the children don’t have to match perfectly, just coordinate. You can’t go wrong with dark, rich monotones, which drive the attention in photos to sweet faces and darling expressions instead of loud prints or colors. If nothing else, pick a color that compliments your child’s eye color.
