It is very important for me that parents stay next to their babies during my newborn sessions. I never ask mothers to stay further away from baby as is sometimes requested by other photographers due to the idea that the smell of mother’s milk will cause the baby to become unsettled. If the baby show signs of hunger such as the rooting that can occur when they sense and smell their mother, they are given appropriate time to feed. A satisfied baby will not be unsettled due to the smell of milk and it is better to have an extra set of hands close by than not.
