How do you prepare a baby for pictures?

We are taking Christmas pictures and Edward will be 6 weeks old. What can I do to make sure he's not fussy?

  • Be sure that you have him for his pictures well before his nap time, while he's still fresh from a previous nap.

  • Definitely feed them, make sure they've napped, but make sure they wake up on their own BEFORE picture time. Other than that, a 6-week old isn't terribly cooperative in my experience, but the pics are always cute regardless. :)

  • Make sure he's well fed, clean, and not overly tired.... Other than that, there's not much you can do to make a 6 week old "behave", heh.

  • I would suggest bringing a second outfit in case of spit -up. I would also just take it easy. You will get cute the other posts go when his fed and rested!

  • There is nothing you can really do. Feed him, bathe him and hope for the best. I have seen sleeping baby photos that are precious.
