Sometimes why do some newborns’ sessions take so long?!
We have to spend most of our time patiently waiting for their nursing and soothing the babies to be in sleepy state for most poses styling in newborns’ safety aspects.
Let said again realistically, it can be max out of 1/2 hour of intervals in calming the babies especially for fussy and touchy ones, the remaining time of styling and photo shooting. We also get pooped and or peed on almost every session so if a hiccup does happen, it is fine for us to wait.
Additionally the newborns are getting more and more intelligent year by year. They are more aware of the surroundings, more impatience waiting for milk. We had been encountering most babies like to be talked to... Whether believe it or not they understand but they stay calmer when at times, we need to negotiate and acknowledge their grumbling...
We always hope to capture all the perfect peaceful babies’ shots; but of course in reality, we are handling babies with all kind of temperamental moods; some can be very touchy and fussy. Especially that we are gently handling them in transition of 5 to 6 poses styling, and we prefer them to be at their sleepiest stage while we pose them in safety aspects.
Typically the newborn sessions inclusive the complimentary family portrait segments will take average about 2 to 3 hours. It is all depend on the newborn’s situations during the day of the session. Cos we are on the babies time, not ours.
