Plan Ahead 

Most of the professional Las Vegas Newborn Photography Studios get booked weeks and even sometimes months in advance! Yes I know many say, “Well what if my newborn baby comes early or late? ” I always tell my clients don’t worry! I only schedule a certain number of newborn clients each week in order to give me wiggle room in case I have some early or late newborn photography sessions I need to squeeze in.

Talk With Your Partner 

Planning your newborn baby’s first professional photo shoot can be so fun! Find out if Dad has any special ideas he’s like to add into the session to help both of you get excited about your upcoming newborn session! This is also a great time to chat about ideas for wardrobe, colors, and themes. Most importantly communicating to make sure you both can be there and he is not working so you can do your first family photos together at the end.Marie Grantham Photography newborn photographer las vegas baby photographerMarie Grantham Photography newborn photographer las vegas baby photos

Begin With the End In Mind

You’re never too old to learn… This is something that is being taught to my son at his elementary school through The Leader in Me Program . “Begin with the end in mind” After I heard it I have tried to apply it in my daily life as well and when I help prepare my Newborn Clients for their sessions. Think about the final result for theses images. Are you planning on hanging your newborn portraits in the baby’s room or your living room or even a play room? Just taking the few extra moments to see where you have wall space in your home can make such a difference. Even thinking about different rooms and the decor and colors can help even the best Las Vegas Newborn Photography teams select the best possible newborn sets and props for your shoot!

Communicating With The Photographer 

Communication with the photographer seems easy but surprisingly so many just get too busy and it just slips their minds! I get it you have a lot going on! Please try to remember most all Newborn photographers should have a newborn preparation guide for you to go over. This can help you prepare the baby and yourselves so you know exactly what to expect. If there is anything you want in specific prior to coming in is the best time to let your photographer know. This being said because many of the best newborn photographers already have everything pulled and beautiful set ups created once you and your little one arrive so no time is wasted in deciding set up, colors and props etc.Marie Grantham Photography newborn photographer las vegas newborn portraits Marie Grantham Photography newborn photographer las vegas newborn studioMarie Grantham Photography newborn photographer las vegas baby pictures
