Newborn Baby Photoshoot?

Does anyone have any experience or can comment on a newborn baby photoshoot? I am in the Etobicoke area if that matters.

Thanks!

My tips....
1) Newborn photogs generally want to do them in the first 2 weeks while they're still "sleepy"
2) I prefer getting a photographer that will come to your house rather than having to go their studio. leaving a house for an appointment with a newborn is difficult at the best of times .

Good tip. Any idea of a decent one in Etobicoke area?

Someone on this board must have done a shoot like this, any help would be appreciated.

Save money and do it yourself.

Even a new iPhone can do great photos. Use a DSLR or ask someone who has one. I have lots of friends who are camera geeks, they would love the chance to practice and take photos. And your friends would probably take hundreds/thousands of shots, and they would probably process them "photoshop" for you too. All for free.

I think its even more meaningful if a friend/relative did it. When they grow up, you show the baby these phtos, "Uncle Jack took these photos for us"

Google the photos online and copy them. Get a white, black , etc paper background, use sunlight near a window. Use software or the actual lens to blur the background.

Poses are the same ones: in a basket, in the palm of your hands, their little hand in your hand, everyone naked from shoulder up for a family photo, etc. then print some out in big canvas or 8x10

yup agree.

You can easily get the props and fluffy blanket on amazon, etsy, etc. First few weeks when they sleep all the time is ideal, but I had no trouble at 3 months as well.
