Newborn Photography with Parents

Newborn Photography with Parents Houston Newborn Photography with Parents

Lisa Carr, with Belly to Baby Studios, is a newborn and family photographer in Houston. She photographed this newborn when she was 10 days old and the session included newborn photography with parents. It is recommended that you photographed newborns between 7-12 days old. If you are a new Mom or have never had your newborn photographed professionally you may be wondering why. This time frame is recommended so that your baby will sleep a bit more and so that they are still flexible since their bones and muscles have not fully developed.

 

Newborn Photography Houston Babies that are older than this will typically stretch out more and reach out more with their hands during their sessions, and also may not want to be scrunched up or swaddled. We always receive calls after a baby has been born, and Moms are panicked because they did not pre-schedule their baby’s newborn session weeks in advance.  
Newborn Photography Normally leave room in our calendars for these last minute sessions. Our  studio believes that it is very important to have your newborn’s photographed even if they are older than the recommended time frame of 7-12 days old. Older babies will need to be handled differently and accommodations made for extra feedings during the session. We allow extra time to capture awake babies during the newborn session. We love to capture Family Portraits during the newborn session. Newborn Photography

Outdoor Maternity and Family Portraits

Outdoor Maternity and Family Portraits

Family portraits are important now more than ever. In our world of fast-paced busy lives, filled with camera phones and selfies, we often fall short of documenting our precious milestones for future generations to treasure. This is a recent outdoor Maternity and Family Portrait of one of our families. We loved capturing this portrait for Rebecca and John at their home. The girls were excited to be big sisters soon! They will soon have a baby brother added to their growing family. We helped coordinate clothing selections and the overall feel they wanted in their Maternity Family Portrait. During the session we also took time to capture images of their three girls together. This is all about their relationships and a moment in time.

Outdoor Maternity Family Portraits Family portraiture is a great way to capture the story of your family’s life. From newly engaged couples in love to parents holding their newborns with pride and every milestone in between, family portraiture is the art that tells your story.

Over the years, Michael and I have photographed couples from their engagement sessions and weddings, to their firstborns to their children’s senior portraits, and to their 25th wedding anniversaries. Imagine being able to share those precious milestones with your children and grandchildren for years to come through family portraiture.

That’s why Michael and I connect with our clients to understand the essence of their family. We guide families through the family portraiture process every step of the way, beginning with what to wear.

Outdoor Maternity Family Portraits It is so important to capture the milestones and document your child as he/she changes over the years. The Portraits will appreciate over time and provide years of joy. When you view our Portraits and albums, they will take you back to a moment in time that in the end will slip by so quickly. The recommended hallmark milestones in a child’s life are the following: Newborn, 6 months, 1 year old, 2 years old, 4 years old, 6 years old, 10 years old, 12 years old, 16 years old, high school graduation or 18 years old, college graduation. We also recommend an original family unit portrait when your child is graduating from high school or college. After these milestones, the next major milestone is their bridal portrait or engagement portrait and wedding portraits. Then the portrait life cycle begins with their new family.

Helpful guide of some foods to avoid while breastfeeding

Newborn Portrait Session

Houston Baby Photographer

How to Prepare for your Newborn Photo Session

Houston newborn photographer, Lisa Carr with Belly to Baby Studios, shares information on how to prepare for your newborn portrait session.

Once you have identified your newborn photographer and booked your session, you should begin preparing for your newborn portrait session. Here are a few tips:

1. Feed your baby well at home before the session. We need your baby to be relaxed and have a full tummy for the session. If you baby is moving around a lot, and demonstrating feeding ques, it is time to feed. Be patient with this.

Bring plenty of formula with you if you are bottle feeding. Bring more than what your baby typically eats at home as we have found most babies eat more when in a new environment. We have a fridge and bottle warmer available for our clients to use during the newborn portrait session.

The list below is just a helpful guide of some foods to avoid while breastfeeding:

Citrus Acidic foods and drinks such as:

  • Cranberries
  • Pineapple
  • Grapefruit
  • Oranges
  • Lemons
  • Strawberries
  • Chili
  • Pizza
  • Chocolate
  • Spaghetti
  • Ketchup
  • Peanuts (Nuts in General)
  • Mexican/ Spicy Food
  • Tomatoes or tomato products

Gassy Vegetables such as:

  • Asparagus
  • Onion
  • Cauliflower
  • Cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Cucumbers/pickles

Restrict foods such as:

Soda, Coffee, Tea, Wine and Beer. Check with your doctor to see if dairy is also an issue.

We highly suggest if your baby is gassy, to avoid the foods mentioned 48 hours before your session.

2. Bring plenty of diapers for your baby. Your baby will probably need to be changed frequently during the session so be prepared! We have a changing station available for our clients during the session. Just bring your diapers and wipes. We do keep a few extra of these on hand just in case but every client, or baby, has their own preferences.
