I don’t think it’s any secret around here that I am a lover of the soft neutral colors when it comes to newborn photography… During sessions, I usually am trying to figure out how to get as many totally unique looking setups as I can for my client mamas + dads… At the end of every visit, it’s like a baby-photo bomb went off… with wraps and hats and blankets (oh my!) scattered in every corner of the room. Sometimes, I am so busy pulling out and creating different setups that I am inevitably wasting precious minutes while baby is sleeping getting things ready! I try to prep stuff beforehand, but often baby arrives and maybe a color I chose isn’t the best for their skin, or whatever. Regardless, I often feel a bit like a chicken with my head cut off … 😉
So, several months ago, I decided I wanted to try to do a session with as little “frills” as I could and really focus solely on baby, getting as many different “looks” as I could and trying to be conscious of angles and lighting instead of vastly different setups. I can’t even express how much I enjoyed it! It helps that my model had the most gorgeous skin that needed absolutely zero retouching, but the editing was lightning fast and session cleanup was a breeze! I even added a special newborn session to my lineup of offerings for this type of session … and I am excited at the prospect of doing more like it. This type of session will make a very cohesive and gorgeous album or wall art, with no worries as to trying to “match” stuff.
Feast your eyes on the adorable Charlotte Jane on her 5th day earthside 🙂
