Newborn Photography by Lola Kolyada

Newborn photography in and around Mombasa, Kenya is best done in the first 10-15 days, when babies are sleeping heavily and curling up genuinely into those desirable poses like in mama belly. On 20-40 days babies often twist a lot and making it very hard to capture the right moments. Babies that are a few months old hardly ever keep calm and often begin to move and and cry – many times making the photography session very nerve-wracking and hassle. As well as colic and baby acne can increase around this time. Anyway, with a newborn, you unusually get that lack of collaboration. So we recommend book your session then newborns sleep 90% of the time, this will be much easier to photographing them.
