Make sure he doesn’t feel cold.
The baby is bound to feel cold at some point or so during the baby photography shoot and this is why you need to make sure that you get to take care of that accordingly. If you observe most of the baby photos posted online close enough, you will soon notice that most if not all of them involve the baby posing in the nude all the time. Your baby will also be posing in the nude all the time. There is a certain innocence and a certain purity to the scene of a baby being photographed in nothing but himself with no clothes and nothing else coming from this world surrounding him. Of course, there will also be other photos that include clothes, shawls even, and perhaps toys but the nude shots are usually the most iconic ones out there. If the room has an air conditioner, you should probably try to see if you can increase the temperature a bit so that the baby isn’t feeling cold and uncomfortable. There are so many things you can do to help him stabilize his body temperature and it will pay off because it means that your photo shoot will not be disrupted or disturbed.
Talk to him constantly.
Your voice will help make him feel more comfortable and more assured of what he has to go through with. The baby photography session will be weird for the baby. It isn’t something that he is used to being in and he will find the environment a little strange. Also, the camera flash can irritate him more than you know. It wouldn’t be uncommon for a baby to throw a fit because of that. If you constantly talk to him though and make him feel that he is safe and secure, you can help assuage him a little bit by talking to him more or by at least letting him hear your voice.
Anticipate the possible irritating elements.
There are a lot of things that can irritate a baby from the dust in the baby photography studio to harsh lighting to the camera flash or even to the constant whirring of the camera. You need to anticipate this and you need to make sure that you get to do something about this. Play some gentle music in the background to help make the baby feel more at ease with what is going on so far. Rub him up a little to help make him feel safer and more secure.
Take the in between takes seriously.
Take care of your baby. This is your window so don’t just sit idly by. This is your time to hold him, change his clothes or even his diaper, put in that pacifier, or perhaps even feed him. Don’t just sit around thinking that your baby photographer will be able to handle things on his own because he can’t and he shouldn’t. As a parent, you should actively take part in the process in the best way that you can.
