How to Get Your Partner Ready for Your Newborn Photo Session
In most instances, one partner does the research and schedules a newborn photo session. If this is the case for you, you may want to take the time to prepare your partner for your upcoming shoot. A newborn session is always more relaxed and positive if both parents know what to expect. Here are some tips.
Browse Your Photographer’s Portfolio
Give your partner an idea of the types of photos you will be taking. They might be thinking they will be posing for photos in a studio-style setting when you’ve actually booked a lifestyle session. Go through your photographer’s portfolio or Instagram feed with your partner to show them what they can expect.
Talk Through the Setting & Outfits
Chat about where the shoot will take place, what you will be wearing, and the types of photos you hope to get. Give your partner the chance to give their input and ideas, making it a joint effort. You may also want to reassure them that your photographer will be guiding you through the session too. So, there’s no need to be nervous about whether or not you’re doing the right thing at the right time.
Your Photographer Knows How to Work with Children
If your partner is worried about having someone else pose your child, help them understand that you’ve hired a photographer that specifically works with newborns and children. This means that both your newborn and any younger children involved in the session will be well taken care of and included. Plus, you will both be there every step of the way.
If your partner is feeling reluctant about a professional photo session, taking them through these details should help put their mind at ease, ensuring a smoother shoot.
I hope these tips help with your next newborn photo session. If you're looking for a newborn photographer in Mountain Home, Arkansas or the surrounding area I would love to help you plan for your newborn photos.
