Rub down his back after feeding.
This is probably something that you already know beforehand and no need being lectured about at some point or so but what you need to know right out is technically the fact that this is crucial to the success of your newborn baby photography shoot or session. The baby might have some bad case brought on by being fed. You need to make sure that you will be able to go ahead and follow through with some good old rubbing to help make him burp and help him get rid of the gases altogether. There will be a lot of times wherein you will forget about the entire thing altogether probably because of the excitement that is being brought on by the photo session but you need to understand the fact that this is something that is extremely important and something that will save you the trouble of having to clean up any messes brought on by the baby vomiting or doing worse because of the extra gases that were not eliminated or anything like that. You need to be practical and sensible when you are taking these things on so that everything is laid out the right way and so that you have next to nothing to have to worry about in the end of it all because the baby is in his best possible condition all of the time.
Play some white noise.
Babies aren’t used to hearing stillness or complete silence all of the time. As a matter of fact, it is actually quite the opposite. You need to know for sure that you are getting things taken care of and arranged for the right way as much as possible. There are a lot of apps that you can download for free. You can mimic any particular noise brought on by nature from trees rustling in the wind to a brook softly babbling somewhere and so on and so forth. These white noises will prove to be quite comforting and soothing for the baby and this is what you ought to go ahead and take into account as much as possible when you are thinking about prepping for the photo session. This will help keep the baby in a better mood and will help steer things towards a better direction in the end of it.
Be ready to be at his every beck and call.
You need to be active and you need to make sure that you will be able to think on your feet all of the time in order for this to work out in the first place. Listen and act swiftly so that you can do something about this at the same time. If you want the newborn baby photography session to go on without any delays, then you need to start thinking on your feet all the time.
Don’t overstep your bounds.
Although you should be helpful in any way that you can, you should also be careful enough not to overstep your bounds while you are at it. Give the photographer the freedom to be creative in what he is trying to do and to go on freely for as long as you have advised him ahead of time what your main preferences or pegs are.
