Babies are one of the sweetest things that attracts any eye or lens. Their innocence and purity are the perfect little accessories that makes any picture taken, look simply stunning. However, as the person capturing these little moments, it is up to you to know your subject well. Unlike adults, babies cannot be man-handled, and so you need to be able to adjust to whatever that is thrown your way. Here are some points you need to keep in mind when working in this field.
The perfect age
Capturing those sweet pictures of little babies, in a basket or on a strategically placed guitar, could only be done at a certain age. The older the baby grows, the more difficult it is for you to work with your subject in a professional baby photography studio. And so it is necessary that you encourage your clients to apply for this and schedule their time, before delivery and within the second trimester. This way it is much easier to capture more delicate and serene pictures that cannot be captured once the infant grows and reaches a particular age. So basically, the perfect age for this kind of photography is when the infant is between 5 to 12 days after birth. This special time period is selected because, during these times, the infant is still more or less adapting to the environmental change. And so, they tend to mimic the positioning they were, in the womb. And with them being a sleep half the time, it is even better to make magic work with these little kids. And those perfect sleeping poses they make, gives an extra innocent touch to the entire picture and scene that is being created. Thus aiding you a lot in creating magnificent art!
Working with time
There is always a chance where the baby makes it before the due date or after the due date. And with that thought and possibility, as a maternity photographer Singapore, you need to be able to evaluate and reserve time periods that are in addition to the booked days, these could either be prior to the delivery or even after. According to this, schedule out a plan with your client, for their convenience as well. In addition to these timings, you need to also keep in mind about, the days you plan on allocating for the client. It generally takes about 3 days for a complete cover, where first pictures are taken with the kid only, then with the parents and later on with the entire family.
Be sure to be flexible yet strict in managing the time while working with the client. This way you and your client could achieve both your wants without much hassle at all!
Most importantly remember to be patient and flexible, after all you are working with babies!
