Newborn Photography MUST Haves
As a newborn photographer, I ALWAYS make sure I have these items on hand in the studio!
Water wipes are a MUST! They are chemical free and super soft. Perfect for sensitive little bums and to wipe away eye crud. A client introduced me these and they are now a staple in my studio.
The name says it all! It shushes babies to sleep. I used to just shush through my sessions. I ended up with a dry mouth. Not anymore! The Baby Shusher does it for me. Just don’t let the batteries die!
I’ll be honest, these are the BEST. Newborns seem to love the Avent 0-3 Soothie better than any other pacifier out there. I highly recommend my clients bring a pacifier to their session. It helps immensely with transitioning from pose to pose. However, it is up to you! If you are not comfortable using a pacifier, I completely understand. I do have some on hand just in case you change your mind.
A few other items I consider Newborn Photography MUST Haves are pee pads and space heaters! The pee pads can be used when the baby is naked or on top of the changing table. I have two space heaters at the studio. I like to keep the temperature around 80-85 degrees to keep the baby comfortable. I’m hot, mom and dad are hot, but the baby is super comfy! Don’t worry, I have some comfortable chairs and cold drinks in the other room if you need to leave the studio to cool off during the session.
