Top 3 Newborn Photography Poses
Newborn photography is important to capture within the first 2 weeks of life (up to 4 weeks at most). This is because newborns are more sleepy in the first few weeks of life and therefore easier to photograph and pose. There are 3 essential poses you must capture in newborn photography.
- Close up newborn photography head shot – fill the whole camera frame so that you can capture every feature of the newborns face.
- Full length of baby. There are many poses to take for newborn photography that involve full length. It really doesn’t matter how you pose in this way as long as you are showing the full length of the newborn in the photo. The most popular tends to be either a full length naked photo with the baby on their side or a full length newborn photo with the baby wrapped.
- All the details – this again is a close up newborn photo. The most popular is a close up of the newborn baby’s eyelashes. Capturing newborn photography details is so important because they change drastically in the first few weeks and in the first year.
Newborn photography is so special to capture this precious time. Remember memories fade…..but photographs last a lifetime…..
