As a newborn photographer in the Oklahoma City area, I understand the joy and anticipation that comes with welcoming a new addition to the family. Booking a newborn session is an exciting step towards preserving these precious early moments forever. However, it’s important for parents to know that there is no guarantee that their baby will be asleep during the session. Today, I want to shed some light on this common concern and explain how I work with both awake and asleep babies to capture stunning photographs that tell your unique story.
Preparing for a Newborn Session: When you book a newborn session with Lauren Grigg Photography, you receive a comprehensive newborn prep guide designed to help you make the most of your session. The guide includes valuable tips and tricks that increase the chances of your newborn falling asleep, resulting in those iconic sleeping baby poses. From establishing a routine to creating a calm and cozy environment, these suggestions can greatly contribute to a more relaxed and sleepy baby.
However, the reality is that not all babies will sleep throughout the session. But fear not! Awake babies can be just as captivating and adorable in photographs. Their wide-eyed wonder and natural expressions capture their unique personalities and add a touch of authenticity to your images. As a skilled newborn photographer, I have the expertise to beautifully document these precious wakeful moments, turning them into cherished memories that you will treasure forever.
Focusing on Connection: One of the most heartwarming aspects of newborn photography is capturing the connection between parents and their baby. If your little one remains awake during the session, we will focus on capturing intimate moments where your baby is cradled in your arms. The love and tenderness that radiate between you and your child will shine through in the photographs, creating a beautiful narrative of the bond you share. These images often become some of the most cherished in your newborn photography collection.
Benefits of Full Newborn Sessions: For clients seeking a more in-depth experience, I offer full newborn sessions that allow ample time for me to work on coaxing the baby into a peaceful slumber. These sessions typically last around 2-4 hours, providing the flexibility needed to ensure your little one’s comfort and relaxation. With this extra time, I can patiently soothe the baby and capture those dreamy, curled-up poses that are synonymous with newborn photography.
On the other hand, I also offer mini newborn sessions for families who prefer a shorter session. While these sessions are wonderful for capturing moments of connection and joy, they may not provide enough time to work on getting the baby to sleep. However, rest assured that regardless of the session type chosen, I will create a memorable collection of images that celebrate your unique family story.
In conclusion, booking a newborn session is an exciting milestone for any family, but it’s important to understand that not all babies sleep through their session. At Lauren Grigg Photography, I go above and beyond to provide my clients with a comprehensive newborn prep guide filled with tips and tricks to increase the chances of a sleeping baby. However, even if your baby remains awake, we will capture beautiful photographs that highlight the love and connection within your family.
Remember, the most important aspect of a newborn session is to document the genuine moments that make your family unique. Whether your baby is wide awake or sound asleep, I am committed to capturing those precious memories that you will cherish for a lifetime.
