Newborn Photography; Tricks of the Trade

Achieving Artistic Newborn Photography

Newborn photographs, look easy, right? The baby just curls up and sleeps-

The photographer props their tiny head on their hands and the magic just happens, right?

Hats are a fun way to hide a coney newborn head!

Newborns actually can NOT support their heads by themselves. Their neck muscles develop over time so those images are manufactured in Photoshop.

Nature moments are more intimate and natural than a posed baby.

While PhotoShop can creates stunning effects via post-production… my style is true to life and reminiscent of film.

Using light, texture and a limited color palette, I can create a unique still life every time I work with a newborn without finding any need for elaborate props. (Although, a few personal items can add a fun personal element!)

Before having my own Newborn, I didn’t know what to do!?

To be honest, I wasn’t always great with newborns! One of my early newborn sessions took place when I was 8 weeks pregnant. The baby cried the entire time! I spent FOUR hours in a futile effort to provide assistance.

As it turned out, the baby was suffering from acid re-flux but at the time, none of us knew.

I didn’t have the skills to calm a baby or comfortably maneuver them into something photo worthy.

Initially, I didn’t think I was cut out for this particular realm of photography; but motherhood was just around the corner to teach me the lessons I needed.

Newborn Photography takes a lot of patience and practice.

After the birth of my own child, spending day in and day out with a newborn, gave me the understanding needed to handle newborn babies. Now I work with newborns on a regular basis and my images reflect the vision of a mother.

These days I have an arsenal of time tested tricks that help me capture these fleeting days with your newborn baby!
