Newborn babies photos

Photograph from Jewels of Life Photography

 

Anne Geddes set the stage for newborn photography with her awe-inspiring images, opening a window into an entirely new world of newborn photography. Now, newborn photographers are doing everything they can to learn how to pose and capture these artistic images of sleeping babies.

In these photographs, the baby looks so peaceful that the posing looks easy. The images are flawless and perfection is the objective. However, quite a bit of work goes into these images. To hire a photographer to capture these images you should expect to pay premium prices, and rightly. And, if you want some super-professional photos, you should hire one. But you can get good results yourself with a few simple tips. You don’t need a professional camera; with today’s small digitals you can snap away until you find something you really like –  and you’ll have some fun.

Tips on newborn photography

  1. Capture the first days of their life by showing off their small features and sleepiness in an artistic way. They’ll never be as small and cuddly as those first few days, nor so easy to pose! Naked babies always look good, but you need to start with a warm room!
  2. You can use the natural sun light in the house, so set yourself up near a window. If it’s too bright, put a thin white sheet over the window to diffuse the light. The morning or afternoon sun will give you different options.
  3. Find some interesting props. To give yourself some ideas, look at a few professional baby photographer’s web sites. You’ll be amazed at what they can do.
  4. Remember that safety is important. Don’t pose your baby where they can roll off and hurt themselves. It’s good to have a friend help you so they can keep an eye on baby while you’re getting your camera ready.
  5. Try to take your photos when baby has just had a really good feed. You should then try for initial shots with the eyes open and looking straight to camera. Remember that the eyes should be tack-sharp, so know how to focus your camera properly.
  6. After the “eye” shots, baby should be feeling sleepy. Now you can gently pose your baby with that dreamy look on their little face. Beanbags mould into good posing “humps”. Cover with a soft sheet or blanket, but you might want to put something under the sheet in the “bottom area”, to catch the inevitable leaks! Note from your web investigation how many times “bottom-in-the-air-legs-tucked-under” features. Cute.
  7. Don’t use a flash, they can be too harsh. If you own a 35mm SLR, digital or film, then you can play around with the depth of field (the bit that’s in focus) so you can blur out surroundings and background.
  8. Don’t worry about perfection. As long as you love an image it’s a treasure!
  9. Try some black and white shots (should be an option in camera settings) they’re always good on the sideboard!
  10. If you have some great images, have them printed professionally and put them in a simple frame. Forget your home office printer or one in a store!

Above all else, have some fun. Try to capture the pure beauty and innocence of those first few days so that you can look back and cherish the images and memories for years. You won’t regret it.
