Glasgow Newborn Photographers
FAQ about Newborn Photography Session at my studio in Clydebank
What is the best time for a Newborn session?
The best time for a Newborn session is within the first 14 days of the baby’s life.
Natural light or Studio light?
I use studio light which is absolutely safe for your baby.
How long does a session take?
Up to 3 hours. When baby is sleeping well we can do a lots of images during 2-3 hours.
What happens if baby doesn’t cooperate?
No worries! Please feed baby fully and change the diaper (I’ll be waiting up to 1 hour).
If baby is still cranky – we will reschedule the session (no extra fee).
Where does the Newborn Session take place?
All newborn photo sessions take place at my photography studio in Clydebank- Glasgow
Do I have necessary props for taking the pictures?
Yes , I have a massive selection of baskets, baby wraps, blankets, hats, and headbands and big bean bag.
Feel free to bring your favourite blanket, baby’s scan photo or a little teddy.
Some parents willing to buy their own props. Can we use it?
Yes, when you have something cute, adorable, or handmade for our session we can also use it, if it matches my style and your expectations.
Please don’t ask me to use oversized props, the primary focus of the picture has to be your baby!
I would be glad to use
– Teddy bear (or any toy about 20 inches long)
– baseball gloves and ball
– handmade blanket
How I clean my props?
The newborn posing bag is waterproof – so it’s easy to clean.
I wash used wraps and the blanket after each session.
How to prepare for the session?
– keep the baby awake 1-2 hours before the session
– feed the baby and keep its tummy full
– leave on the baby just a diaper, and swaddle the baby in a blanket
– if nursing, make sure you’re eating too
– if nursing, no caffeine
Please prepare wipes, a warm blanket, a hair brush, and a pacifier (if you use it)
Will it be warm at my photography studio ?
It will be around 23 degrees around the baby during our session. It does get a bit warm for adults, but my main priority is the comfort of your little baby. Since he will be naked or just diapered for the entire session.
What if my baby poops?
If your baby poops or pees, IT IS OKAY! I have the waterfroob posing bag and wash all my props every time.
Please prepare the wipes to clean the baby.
What we are going to do if the baby is not sleeping?
If the baby is not cranky I will swaddle him/her and keep working.
If the baby is cranky you will feed the baby, change the diaper, and wait for 30 min. It usually works.
What to wear (for parents and siblings)?
Solid color, mid-tone pastel colors work great on the picture.
Avoid logos, big prints, complex patterns.
Try to coordinate with each other. Similar colors or similar styles are the best for family picture.
We will use the similar color wrap for the newborn baby.

Yes. Sure! Parents, siblings, and grandparents always welcome to be on the photo!
