Setting up for a Newborn session – Belliam Photos Calgary Photographer

alt="newborn basket setup"

Hi all! I am writing to this to you show you a brief setup example of a newborn session at Belliam Photos! This particular setup is for a little lady, as I am sure you can see.


I like to have my beanbag setup with a couple of blanket choices as well as matching wraps and headbands/bonnets. I also like to create two or three little baskets for a different array of images produced.

The best time for a newborn session is between 4 and 15 days. If younger then 4 days the moms mil has not come in and the newborn is not taking full feeds which in turn means not as sleepy! If they are older that is totally ok! Make sure to nook with me when you are thinking of having photos taken so we can fit in a beautiful maternity session as well!

When it comes closer to your newborn photography session, I will touch base and ask about which colors you would like. I like to have an idea so we are ready to go when you come into the studio.

If mom and dad or siblings would like in on some photos I always recommend neutrals. Then the images come out soft and pretty! Also the baby is often in something colorful so they will be the high lite of the photos.


Here are some images I took of some girl setups.
