Expectant Mommies ......... this Blog is just for you!! I wanted to share some inside information on what a Newborn Photographer is all about and why you may want to choose a custom newborn photographer that is local in your community such as the case with Michelle Flowers Photography LLC studio. We are located in Deltona, Florida and we are a private home boutique studio by appointment only!
I think the most important thing is you are usually invited to a private local home studio or boutique that is by appointment only. Which means upon arrival you and your new bundle of joy are the only ones present and you are welcomed on a first named basis and with a huge smile and excitement to meet everyone who came along. The studio is always clean , neat and organized. The photographer has taken the time out to select backgrounds, blankets, unique clothing and headbands, crowns, jewelry,wraps and numerous other props that she has chosen for your custom photo session. This is unique and custom experience , not the everyday fast paced and in/out Big Box Photo Chain.
Upon arrival you are surprised that you have a client waiting area where you are able to sit the car seat down with baby safely snuggled inside, all of your diaper bags and carrying bags for your bundle of joy is neatly put on a table. You simply glance around and cant help admiring all of the beautiful art work on the walls. You are pointed out to a neatly dressed table with snacks, drinks and reading material when you may find the need to snack on something because most Mommies who are breastfeeding need to keep up their calorie intake.
You are then shown the private custom changing room where you are shown a diaper changing area, a crib or small bassinet to safely place your baby for safety purposes. You then look and amazed that there is a rocking chair to soothe the baby and small soft lullabies playing in the background. You can actually have a private moment to feed or nurse the baby when the time comes. Once the bundle of joy is fed and fast asleep the newborn photographer is ready to get to work. The photographer will take a moment and sanitize their hands one more time before she politely and loving cradles the newborn in her arms and carries the baby to the studio and placed on a newborn posing bed which has been set up hours ago and is warm and very, very soft and cozy , all the while Mommy is sitting comfortable in a relaxing chair or sofa nearby. It is at this point Mommy and maybe Daddy notices it is pretty warm in the studio , the photographer reminds the parents it is warm and comfortable for the newborn baby because the session is about the comfort and safety of the baby, it must be kept warm as babies do not regulate their body heat like adults do.
As the photographer gets to work with the camera in hand , the baby may wet or have a accident. This is a time for cleaning the mess, and yes we do expect that to happen all of the time and we are prepared. Again we will sanitize our hands and then start changing backgrounds or outfits. We will always pause or wait for the newborn to be fed or nursed so that they can be comforted back to sleep. On some occasions the photographer may ask one of the parents for assistance to help hold a position on the baby, I find when I get the clients involved with assisting, it becomes part of a team work and gets them involved and excited about the photo's! Without a doubt the parents always know which one they helped with getting the shot and its is always included in their final package.
We have more to tell you about your custom photography session but we will make it a second edition next week blog.
