When it comes to planning your newborn photography session choosing a photographer is a big and important decision! Safety is my top priority and it should be for you as well. I do have a current CPR certificate, but you also want to make sure that the photographer you choose has the proper training to safely pose your precious baby. Some poses look effortless, but some newborn photography poses are more technique sensitive. There is a pose that requires me to take two separate pictures and to photoshop them together to make an adorable images.
Safety is my top priority when is comes to newborn photography poses!
I will share my favorite newborn poses that I attempt during a newborn session. These poses are done on a posing table that is lined with multiple soft blankets. It’s also very important to understand that every baby is created in their own beautiful way and not all babies love some of the poses I attempt. I follow the baby’s cues two what they are comfortable doing. A lot of the time, the baby just needs a little extra time settling into some of the newborn poses. I do not give up easily, but if I see the baby is not loving a certain pose, I move on to the next pose.
