Looking for information for a professional newborn baby photo? This article will cover some practical information as well as some handy tips on what props to use, lighting & positioning.

The best time to take a newborn baby photo is within the first two weeks of life. During this time, the baby is still sleepy and relaxed, and therefore easier to photograph. Make sure your baby is fed before the session. Keep some towels and wipes handy, newborns can be messy.  You may want choose to use a water proof table cloth under your props in case of any accidents.

Props

Be sure to give yourself time to plan for your newborn baby photo shoot in advance, this includes picking the most suitable props. Make sure the props pose NO RISK to the baby. Some effective props for a newborn baby photos include:

  • Beanies and hats
  • Crocheted photography props – you can find these online
  • Wraps
  • Baskets
  • A selection of backdrops – This can be almost anything
  • Blankets
  • Headbands
  • Nappy covers
  • A large beanbag
  • Blankets

Experiment with dissimilar colors and textures beforehand. Also, decide what ‘style’ of photo you are looking for and choose your props accordingly.

Lighting

Decide whether you will be using natural light or studio light. It’s often better to shoot newborns inside. Try setting up next to a window so you have enough natural light coming in to take your photograph. Try dissimilar lighting set ups and make sure there are no harsh shadows on the face.

Positioning

You should thoroughly research positions before attempting them. Your main priority is to keep your baby safe. Once you are happy with the composition of your photograph, snap away!
