We would make sure we left a full day for this particular photo shoot.  The first newborn photo shoot we did took about 11 hours but the end results made it totally worth it.  We make sure we are organised and have all the props there ready to go as soon as the baby arrives. 

The lighting kit is set up and ready to go guaranteeing no problems throughout the photo shoot.  We get the parents to come along with very neutral/plain coloured clothes – ideally black making the back drop easier to work with.  We are open to any suggestions and please do bring any props/teddies/toys to the photo shoot.
