Newborn Session Tips

Most of the images we’ll be shooting work best if your baby is in a deep sleep. To encourage this, we recommend that you do what-ever it takes to make sure baby is nice and exhausted. Keeping your little one awake on top of your own sleep deprivation might feel like torture, but we think it will be worth it in the end!


A well fed baby is a happy baby! Please feed and burp baby right before our session to ensure a happy, sleepy (“milk drunk”) baby. We’ll also be more than happy to take as many breaks as needed to help him/her re-fuel. It’s tough work being a model!


We wash all of our baby props and blankets between each session with non-scented baby detergent. (This is why we only schedule one newborn session per day!)


It would definitely be helpful if you had a stack of old towels, extra wipes and blankets available for when things get messy though.


Your baby is going to be in the buff for the majority of this shoot. Please don’t panic if your baby decides to use our blankets (or us) as his/her own personal potty. This is natural and we expect it!


If you would like shots in a diaper, it’s a good idea to have a cloth diaper, diaper cover in a solid color, bloomers, or something to put over the diaper. Diapers on their own tend to look a little messy and distracting in photos, but throwing a cover over it cleans things up.


We absolutely loved the way our newborn photos came out! Not only is Franchesca extremely talented, she was very good with our baby and has a great touch and lots of patience! I would highly recommend using Franchesca Fread Photography for any of your photography needs, but especially for newborn shoots!!

The newborn photos of my cousin Stephanie's son came out so beautiful! She couldn't be happier! I'm sure she will have a tough time narrowing down her favorites. Franchesca Fread Photography really captured precious moments of both her baby and family.

Franchesca has done two shoots for us. A newborn shoot last year and a holiday mini this year. The pictures are all beautiful. We are going to have a tough time deciding. She was so patient with our kids.
