What’s The Difference Between Newborn & 1-2 Months Baby Photoshoot?

It breaks our hearts to reject clients asking to do Newborn Photoshoots, or when clients are hoping to achieve newborn shots with their baby but they aren’t in the newborn stage anymore. While we can attempt the newborn poses on certain older babies, we are not able to promise and guarantee the results as Bambini’s highest priority is always the safety and welfare of babies and we wouldn’t push them too far and cause them stress.

With years and years of experience with babies, we’ve learnt a lot through the hard way!

With that we’d want our clients to make informed decision at the end of the day, knowing the kind of photos you want and can achieve with your baby – so that you can come to your shoot with clearer expectations to match with what your baby is comfortable with. There is a lot of difference between Newborn & 1-2 months baby. Even if it’s different only by a few weeks, you’d be surprised how much they can grow within that period of time. 

So let’s get to the chase! What’s the difference between Newborn & 1-2 months baby photoshoot?
No option is better than the other, but more of what are the kind of images do you want to achieve together.

1-2 Months Baby Photoshoot is great for capturing babies’ expressions and family connection because they’re more awake and they’re starting to recognise more of their surroundings. Newborn Photoshoot on the other hand focuses more on how small and precious your baby is

Newborn Photoshoots (5 – 14 days old)

1-2 Months Baby Photoshoot

“What Do I Need To Know?”

Every babies are different. However, newborns usually…

  1. are able to hold newborn poses for Newborn Photoshoots between 5 – 14 days of age
    (the optimum time is 5 – 10 days)
  2. prefer to be curled up and wrapped up to feel secure just as how they were like in their mummy’s wombs
  3. go through growth spurts once they reach past 2 weeks old
    (some babies may go through it earlier, some later)
“What Are Growth Spurts?”

Babies past 2 weeks old will experience growth spurts such as…

  1. more likely to stretch out more
    (constricting their movements by wrapping them up in curled up poses may stress them out)
  2. have the tendency to be more awake and more aware of their surroundings
    (certain newborn poses may require babies to be calm or asleep for the safety and comfort of babies)
  3. gets hungrier for milk more often than before 
  4. just like us, they have preferences too, especially when they’re past 2 weeks old – they may prefer not to be in certain lying positions, not to be put down to sleep, to be carried more, breastfed more, swaddled up more (every babies are different though!)

Usually newborn babies are able to curl up better because that is how they’ve been like in their mother’s womb. That’s also comforting to them because it makes them feel as if they’ve yet to leave the womb!

They are also flexible to be in different poses, where else for 1-2 months babies, they’re less flexible, more stronger and more awake to be in poses.

If you love expression shots like we do, then, 1-2 months baby shoot would be great for you! If 1-2 months photoshoot is not what you’re looking for, you can even try 6 months milestone photoshoot!

We usually let babies to dictate what they are comfortable with, and we’ll work with what we have creatively.

We can never truly predict how 1-2 months babies would react and that’s the best part! Their adorable expressions are the best and it’s a great time too if you need some rest after giving birth to capture some memories while you’re still on maternity leave.

Not Ready for Newborn Photoshoot? How About a 100 Days Baby Shoot?

Not Ready For Newborn Photoshoot When You Just Had A Baby?

For new parents to be and/or parents of young children, if you feel overwhelmed with the changes in your life after the arrival of your new bundle of joy. Upon your baby’s arrival, Do you….

  1. keep staring at the little eyes, toes, fingers
  2. rush straight to baby when baby makes every sound or cry?
  3. try to figure out what your baby wants, whether baby is too hot/too cold, uncomfortable or if baby had pee or poo’ed;
  4. constantly check to see if the diaper is soiled?
  5. feel you are constantly breastfeeding, expressing milk or keep washing and sterilising the bottles?
  6. remembering which side of the breast baby last fed/expressed;
  7. feel that you are subconsciously worried about baby even while you are asleep?
  8. feel you need to be very efficient when you eat, shower/clean so that you can be ready in time for baby’s next feed; or
  9. feel you have only 10 mins to spend in the supermarket to buy your baby’s necessities or simply to clear your mind while baby is asleep… etc etc

Congratulations! You are not alone and its time to embark on the new phase of your life.

They are only newborns for a month, toddlers for a few years then you see them run around as children for a couple more and before you know it – they hit the teenager phase, then they will be all grown up.

You have seen the sheer amount of newborn photos on social and your friend’s feeds and you like to get that too. HOWEVER, you’re still in confinement and not feeling your best with the sleepless nights, and hope to lose abit of weight first before you’re confident to be in front of the camera.

You’ll prefer to do the shoot abit later when:

  1. you are more settled in,
  2. you are more confident in handling baby,
  3. when baby is more alert, responsive and full of expressions;
  4. when you are still on maternity leave.

All when your baby is still small and capturing their ’tinyness.

So how much later? When then is the next milestone to take baby photos after the newborn phase? When is a good time to photograph babies?

100 days old photoshoot (Classic + Milk Bath) would be a great milestone to preserve before you miss another milestone. WHY?

  1. We heard that some cultures celebrates 100 days as commemorates the full 1 year from the time you conceive and is a very special time preserve memories at this stage.
  2. 3 months is the cuteness overload phase! It’s a milestone that captures their alertness, curiosity, tummy time and their goos and gaa’s. Your baby has started to communicate more with you, respond to the things familiar to them and they are stronger now. A milestone to celebrate for sure!
  3. You can do both tub and ‘land’ shots in one session. We love this series so much because you truly get the best of both worlds, especially if your baby loves their bath time.
  4. You get to capture your baby’s facial responses and expressions! Curiosity, alertness, eye contact, smiles, and even precious cries. 
  5. You are more rested now and have gain better momentum at handling your babe… Now you’re ready for lights, camera and action!
  6. It’s the time when your baby is all chubby and baby rolls are your latest obsession and how you just can’t get enough of those fishball cheeks, so much so you just want to keep kissing them!

While Newborn Photography definitely has that serenity to the photos, 100 Days Baby Photography has so much individuality and charisma to it because of the babies! This series will be more focused on your baby engaging and interacting with you more too.

Our photographer will guide you through the whole process so you know exactly what to do during the shoot. 

Once you have decided that this is it, all you have to do is to bring yourselves and enjoy your precious time as a family. Thats our aim and vision to preserve memories of families.

(www.bambiniphoto.sg)(www.bambiniphoto.sg)I bet mommies and daddies recognize this face, yes, it’s the poop face! Haha! Good thing I was able to get one good shot of this before the fabric got soiled. Babies have the best expressions, even the angry, crying ones are funny, once you learn how to tune out the sound, that is! But this baby was all smiles and looks of extreme concentration, and then relief. She fell asleep in her parents’ arms soon after – I guess she was all pooped out!(www.bambiniphoto.sg)(www.bambiniphoto.sg)(www.bambiniphoto.sg)Gorgeous-looking mom and dad. :)
