Babies overgrow, so after darling was born, many parents wanted to photograph sweetheart as he grew up, so taking photos of newborn babies has become a choice for many parents of newborn babies to remember beauty 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 picture 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 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 solid electronic flash on the impact or damage of the visible cell affects children’s visual ability.
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, it is easy to catch a cold when changing clothes because of the newborn’s poor body resistance. Therefore, we recommend that infants under 100 days should not take art photos.
If parents 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 infant.
Newborn due to spinal fragility, but also can not bear the head’s weight, if forced to raise the head of the infant, easy to cause baby cervical lordosis.
Therefore, when taking photos of the newborn, one must not take pictures of the effect and let the infant do more challenging 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 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 a darling is asleep, it’s the best time to photograph a newborn because sleep is the norm.
