Newborn Photography by Smile On Photography  | Milton Ontario

Your Session

Your Newborn Session will ideally take place between 5 and 21 days of age.

However, we will still photograph any baby 6 weeks of age and under.

To Bring:

  • An extra feeding if you're formula feeding
  • Pacifier or soother if baby takes one
  • You can also bring your own comfort items such as:

water, blanket, nursing pillow, iPad, book.

Our studio is fully stocked with:

  • Honest Company or Huggies Diapers and Wipes. (Depending on what's in stock)
  • Extra soothers,
  • Pads and nursing pads if needed.
  • A Professional Newborn Posing System,
  • Wraps,
  • Headbands & Hats,
  • Props
  • Any textiles needed for your newborn session.

We do not require that you keep baby awake prior to their session.

Please Arrive with Baby in a Sleeper rather than a onesie or a lot of extra layers.

The Process

When you come in the Photographer will take baby out of their carseat for you and will start by wrapping and calming baby if needed.

From there we hop right into photographing your session, starting with baby only poses first.

During your session, there will be time to feed baby, burp, change baby's diaper and take breaks if needed. The photographer will offer to assist where able.

For example, I like to change baby while they're still half wrapped and by the heater so they stay sleepy and calm. However if you're uncomfortable with me changing your little one's diaper, there is a change table available for use as well.

After your Session you will be sent a link to an online proof gallery containing unedited images from your Newborn's Photo Session.

Once you have received your proof galley you will then choose your images for the photographer to edit.

Once the editing has been completed you will then receive a link to your edited gallery and from there you'll be able to download your gallery and we will discuss your print product options.
