I will never forget our 1st outing with our 1st born to the Pediatrician. It was funny! He was born in the winter, so we started extra early since there was snow on the ground. I was trying to pull my self together and my amazing husband was putting our son in the car seat. I came out and the over the shoulder car seat straps were under baby’s arms. In my tired state I am surprised I even noticed, but wow, what rookies we were! The pediatrician would not have been impressed!
When preparing for your newborn session, I want to make it as easy as possible for you! You have a lot going on, I know. So here is a simple list of what to bring to a newborn session.
Most likely this will be one of your 1st outings with your baby. So pack up your regular diaper bag gear:
-more diapers and wipes than you think you would ever need
-a pacifier if you use one
-change of clothes for you and baby
-changing pad, hand sanitizer, hat for baby, rash cream, breast pads if you are nursing, sling or wrap if you use one, emergency info, snacks and water
And what to bring specially for your newborn session:
-any special hats or blankets you may want photographed
-simple, neutral, plain colored tops for you and your spouse to wear, and a backup top in case one gets dirty.
I will provide the rest! I like to keep it simple and focus on the baby, and the connection between you all, so there will not be a ton of props here. Here is a link to my Styles Pinterest Board, www.pinterest.com/katieprw/stylephoto-sessions/
