How does a newborn session look like? | Baby Lucas

Sep 7, 2018 | Newborn Photography Blog

If you ever wonder what a newborn photography session looks like, I created this short time-lapse behind-the-scenes video to give you an idea. I know most clients have no idea how the newborn photography session works when they see those cute sleepy posed images on my website. I always set a plan before the baby arrives at my photography studio in Calgary, and believe me, I have plan A, plan B and even a plan C in case the baby is wide awake or fussy during the newborn photography session. We let the baby lead the session and we respect all baby’s needs.

Every time I can, I do short videos of the behind-the-scenes and all my clients love it! I just wish I did it more often but to be honest, I always forget about it until the session ends.. lol!

Baby Lucas came to the studio for his newborn photography session and he was so darling and so sleepy for me during the photos. In this behind-the-scenes video below you can have an idea of the workflow, I use for his newborn photography session.

I love to include custom setups with special meaning for my clients. Baby Lucas’ grandfather is a pilot and this cute airplane setup was definitely a must-have for his newborn session. To make this shot even more perfect, I captured a cute smile from this sweet baby boy.

I love his hair and all his little features, he is such a cute baby boy!

We also created this custom setup using dad’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu outfit.

I love colour and bright images but there is something special on the black&white images too.
