Photo Tip for Newborns: Keep ’em Warm! Newborns are a wonderful subject to shoot. Capturing the elements that make up the newborn (hands, feet, eyes, lips) session is essential. While capturing those images make sure your newborn doesn’t get too cold or your shoot could go south. Work with the client to find a spot where the baby will feel warm and comfortable if you are working on location. An items to bring could be an electric blanket to use as a base layer and cover it with you furs or wraps. While on a low setting, do not let the baby come in direct contact with the electric blanket due to the warming coils).
