Babies grow quickly, so after Darling was born, many parents wanted to photograph darling as he grew up, so taking photos of newborn babies has become a choice for many parents of newborn babies to remember darling as he grew up.
But some parents say they don’t know when is the best time for newborn photos, so here’s a look at the best time to take a photo of a newborn and what to watch out for.
The Best Time for Newborn Photos
The best time to photograph a newborn is between 5 and 14 days after birth.
Of course, children can be photographed between 15 and 20 days, so why choose the 5 to 14 days to photograph a newborn?
The reason is that the child is not fully adapted to the environment at this time, and sleeps in the maternal position, but also because this time the child is often quiet and very well behaved.
What to Consider when Taking Pictures of Newborns
1. No flash photography, no close-ups
The organs and tissues of a newborn baby are not fully developed and are in an unstable state.
The function of the visual cells on the retina of the eye is also in an unstable state, the strong electronic flash on the impact or damage of the visual cell affects the visual ability of children.
The damage is related to the distance from the camera to the eye, and the closer the camera is to the eye, the greater the damage.
2. Take a photo of a newborn, not an art photo
When photographing a newborn, you may need to undress or change clothes frequently. However, because of the newborn’s poor body resistance, it is easy to catch a cold when changing clothes. Therefore, we recommend that infants under 100 days should not take art photos.
If parents really need to take art photos of newborns, make sure it’s warm enough inside.
3. Take a picture of a newborn baby and don’t force Darling to lookup
To photograph a newborn, parents sometimes inadvertently place a darling on his stomach or even raise his head, which can be dangerous and cause harm to the newborn.
Newborn due to spinal fragility, but also can not bear the weight of the head, if forced to raise the head of the newborn, easy to cause baby cervical lordosis.
Therefore, when taking photos of the newborn, must not order to take photos of the effect, and let the newborn do some more difficult movements, this is likely to hurt the baby.
In addition, since newborns don’t know how to express their dissatisfaction in words, parents and photographers must stop filming if they feel uncomfortable and will cry.
Darling’s full moon shot was not meant to be graphic, but rather to capture Darling’s moment of truth. As a permanent treasure, “Truth” is Darling’s most beautiful image.
Even when Darling is asleep, it’s the best time to photograph a newborn, because sleep is the norm.
