Newborn STYLE GUIDE

newborn photography styling

To style your unique Newborn photoshoot the styling is important. What sort of portraits do you vibe with; natural, stylised or a bit of both? How do you envision yourself in portraits? Do you want to be in the portraits? What can you see hanging on the wall? 

This page is dedicated to the 'so you've booked your photography, what now?' families.

Subjects

Who will be in the portraits?

Newborn photography sessions typically (but not always) include 2 - 3 hours of photography. You can choose how you would like to spend that time. Mama, Daddy + Siblings are all welcome. 

Photography

There are three styles that you can choose from for your photography:

  1. Natural - less posing, more snuggles & details
  2. Stylised - pure baby posing; 'Anne Geddes' style creative 
  3. Combination - unless you say otherwise, this is the standard approach

Natural

stylised

Family Portraits

Before your shoot, consider what kind of backdrop you vibe with for your family portraits:

  • Natural; as above. 
  • Black; as above
  • White; see below
  • Hand-painted backdrop; see below

Once you decide what style of photography you love the next question you are most likely to ponder will be; what will I wear?

Let's tick a few things off the list straight away. The things that all families should bring to every session are:

  • UNDERWEAR; NUDE BRA AND KNICKERS (THIS IS A STAPLE MUST-BRING ITEM), WHITE AND BLACK OPTIONS ARE ALWAYS A BONUS
  • IF YOU ARE HAVING A MILK BATH YOU NEED AN EXTRA CHANGE OF CLOTHES
  • ANY SPECIAL ITEM THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO BRING ALONG AS AN OPTION, LIKE THIS BEAUTIFUL PIECE THAT WAS WORN AT THIS MAMAS WEDDING AND INCLUDED IN HER MATERNITY SESSION
