Denver Newborn Photography Tips

Little Julian peeked out at me with his big eyes as I started taking portraits of him. He laid there, so tiny, on the queen bed with his little wrinkly skin hanging off his body. I love that wrinkly folds of newborns.

Emily and Dan were just so excited to be new parents. There’s nothing like that new parent love. Everything is new, everything is cute. You can just sit there and stare at all the little faces and movements your new baby makes asleep and awake.

Newborn portraits generally take about 30-45 minutes. Babies, especially newborns, don’t last much longer. They get hungry, cranky, tired or are plain just over it. I like to take photos of each parents cuddling with the baby, and then some portraits of just the babe by himself. Of course, we’ll do some full family images – bring the dog and cat too.

Before I arrive, I suggest feeding your baby right before. I don’t care if your newborn is awake or asleep, but I do care that their belly is full. Full belly = happy baby.

Don’t worry if you feel like your house is a mess! Every new parents home is a mess, and if your’s isn’t – props to you! I love photographing on your bed, as well as the baby’s nursery. If those two spaces look good, then your photos will look good.
