Are you just starting out in Newborn Baby Photography?
Where you shoot in a studio or travel to your clients homes here are 3 easy things for you to implement to better your photography right out of the gates.
I wish I had begun my business with these easy steps.
I call my Newborn Sessions 'Welcome To The World' because this is exactly how I feel about them.
What an awesome opportunity and privilege I have to often capture the first photographs that are going to announce this baby to his/her world. My photographs will be treasured through generations of their family. One day they will show these images to their kids and their kids kids.
Each and every Newborn Photography Session I capture is so very different. I absolutely love this. I enjoy the fact that no two photographs turn out the same. Babies have their own little (or sometimes big) personalities from day one and this reflects in my photographs and the running of the shoot. I want to capture the quirks and cute differences that make this baby themselves.
Of course I approach each photography session with an overall plan but it is exactly that.
Babies are unpredictable, especially when they are only a week or two old so we just have to go with the flow and roll with it, working around baby.
I bring along a variety of props to your in-home session to give us options and variety.
Each family has slightly different taste and preferences with colours and so on.
This little baby boy was such a dream to photograph. Just check out that candid smile, you couldn't ask for cuter!
His hair is simply insane. I absolutely love it!
Within the newborn photography session I aim for 4 different set ups with different angles and aspects within each.
We usually begin with the lovely white fur and then move into this ''bum up'' pose.
As baby is kept naked for 90% of the shoot it is important that we crank up the heat to a toasty 85 degrees to keep them comfortable and asleep.
This comfy basket is next on our agenda. I tend to find the babies love laying in these baskets full of fur. They could sleep there for hours!
Whilst in these baskets I also try to capture lots of the small details that make your baby so unique, from their tiny hands and toes to the extravagant eyelashes and head of hair.
These beautiful stretch knit wraps from @TinyTotPropShop are so soft.
We bundle up baby for the final set up of the session. By this time it often works out that baby is starting to wake up and these swaddles help to keep them asleep for that final 10 minutes.
Another reason we photograph the swaddled poses last is that it works best for the family and parent shots.
Once I have captured them in the big wooden bowl we keep them in the wrap and begin the parent shots (if wanted).
Although parent shots are not a ''must'' and some do not feel ready to have photographs taken of them just yet I think they are priceless. Babies grow so fast that the opportunity for these teeny tiny baby to daddy/mummy photographs pass by before you realize it. The parents shots are often some of my favourite and most treasured.
Around 3 and a half hours later we are finished and the anticipation begins as you await the viewing of your finished images.
At this point the second half of my job begins...Editing.
I love this side of my job. The artistry I get to explore is so much fun. I am passionate about my end product being one that each family will cherish.
So if you are looking for a photographer in the Toronto GTA to not just capture but create visual artwork of your new addition please get in touch.
