9. Have the first session scheduled for when your newborn is between 5 and 14 days old. This timing is not absolute. It is a guide that many professional infant photographers agree upon. If your baby is older than that, still make the call to schedule. The babies are growing daily. Although they already may look like they have grown so much, they are small next to how they will look a month from now.

10. Keep the number of family members around to those who are going to be in the portrait. Extra people around can be distracting for both the photographer and the baby. It is a good idea to have only one parent at the session, unless both are going to be in the portrait. Remember the saying, less is more and stick to it. Remember the goal is to create infant portraits that are the best possible.
