Baby It’s Cold Outside….Brisbane Newborn Photographer

Snuggle you up in my arms baby dear…

keeping you warm, keeping you near…

this time it is precious, tiny and new…

never to doubt, my love it is true…

Holding you safe, my life is complete…

with your tiny fingers and your tiny feet.

 

Can you believe it’s a new year? Last year was such a blur but here we are fresh and new in 2021! I thought I’d take the time while I wait for all our January babies to make their way earthside to give you a little behind the scenes of just what goes into a newborn session and what you can expect when you come to the studio with your newest little love.

Today I wanted to talk about the studio itself, and more importantly how snuggly and warm it is in there! Anyone who has been to the studio or seen me do a live knows it can get super toasty in there but did you know there is a very important reason behind that? Did you know your newborn can’t actually regulate their own temperature until they are around 2yrs old? Crazy hey? I’m sure you read when you were expecting all those fun facts about how to dress your little one, nursery room temperatures…to add one extra layer than what you are wearing. There is so much advice around how to prepare when bringing a newborn home. But the studio is a whole other story in itself…your little one is nudie rudie and therefore needs a little more support than you would imagine. We have the studio set to around 25-28degress to support your little one when they can’t otherwise support themselves. For an adult the temperature might be a little too toasty but the risks to a bubba getting cold…like restlessness, low blood sugar, poor feeding or worse are not things I am willing to risk. Your little ones comfort and safety will always be my priority. Neonatal thermoregulation graphicWithout getting too sciency…that’s totally a word right? The above graphic from http://www.cmnrp.ca  shows the modes but also how easy a newborn without protection loses heat. Without the support of an external heat source or layers, heat loss can be quick and catastrophic. As a NICU nurse but also an experienced newborn photographer I take my role very seriously. Often families haven’t even left the house with their newborn yet, they haven’t let anyone meet or hold their newborn and here they are in a total strangers studio expected to hand over their most prized possession, literally their heart in a tiny little being, to someone they have never met. It is not a privilege I take lightly and an honour that isn’t wasted on me. I want you to feel safe, I want you to feel comfortable and I want you to feel confident that you have chosen the right person. Put your faith in me and you will not only be rewarded with beautiful images to treasure for eternity but also a lovely experience leaving you with memories of such a magical time in your newborns journey.

Have you had a newborn session with me? I’d love to hear about your experience below….
