Who doesn’t love a cute baby smile during a session and what to expect at a session with Grey Loft Studio is a pretty special moment for us in the studio. Smiles are something truly special for mom and dad, as they are so few and far between at this age. We all know that newborn babies don’t really start to smile until about 8 weeks old, however a quick little smile while they are in a deep sleep is key.
Posing doesn’t always come easy
Choosing lots of different poses for a baby during a session is a great idea, but ultimately the baby is the boss during the session. Some babies won’t always go into all positions or poses happily. Our goal is to get your baby to be happy, comfortable, and warm so that we can achieve the cute baby smiles and exceed your expectations.
From our experience, it is very normal for a baby to temporarily be a little upset as we are disturbing sleep a little, however, it should last more than a minute before we settle them down again!
It’s all in the eyes
Eyes open are such a keepsake for a parent. However, as it happens during most sessions we try and get a few photos where baby has eyes open as we know this is a top pick for most families.
At our studio we are always trying to get a good variety of photos during a session, so having a baby smile during a session is a great way to exceed our clients expectations, but of course is not guaranteed.
The smile that is so sweet
All our outfits, props, headbands, and hats are all handmade and about 90% of them are all made in Canada. We absolutely love supporting local moms and talents across the country. This outfit was handmade for our studio by Natural Whispering Wonders and we have 9 different outfits from her store.
Something to keep in mind when you are booking a photo session is to let us know what poses or set ups you like. However, we already have an idea of what types of posing we will attempt, it’s nice to know what you would love to see. Baby smiles during a session and what to expect is a key misunderstanding that we see, so we hope that this clarifies this for you!
