We photograph lots of newborn babies every week – so grateful! With tons of newborn photography props to choose from, we discuss client’s favourite props and poses before starting each session. Recently, we’ve had a number of clients asking for pure white look. The pure white look aligns with our style as we are all about simple and clean look. The more sessions I do with the white theme, the more I like it. Newborn babies are so innocent and beautiful as they are. And WHITE seems to be the perfect colour to show it.
Newborn photography doesn’t have to be all about props. There are many ways to capture the beauty of the newborns and keeping it simple is definitely one of my favourites.
Here is the example of how our Newborn Essence package is done with a white colour theme:
The first image, I used a grey fur – still neutral but to make the baby in the white bear outfit stand out.
We have three different coloured bunny hat and bunny sets – white/ivory, pink, and brown. I’d like to use this washed white floor and ivory fur when I use the white/ivory bunny set. It seems to keep the image clean.
This pose is called potato sack. This pose is typically done on a beanbag but can be done in a basket like this. The natural look tieback adds a little bit of colour and it feels fresh.
The angel wings: it is quite popular with baby girls. I can use it pretty much with any colour fabrics but white seems to be the matching colour. I have a couple of headbands that go with the angel wings and this silver one is one of them. I’ve used the angel wings on baby boys, too – just with no headbands. 🙂
This is called taco pose – describing how the baby is folded. This is one of the poses I love to capture the baby naked. It is a quite natural pose for the newborn babies and especially for breech babies as they were like this in the mommy’s tummy. This pose also shows how flexible the newborn babies are.
This is called froggy pose as the baby is sitting in a froggy position. It is a composite of two images – the baby is not doing it on her own. She is supported with a spotter’s hands all the time. I added earthy tone tieback.
I could’ve used a white backdrop for this one, which I do quite often. But ivory still stays in that white simple clean theme but add slightly different feel.
So if you like this simple clean look for your precious newborn baby, let us know. We can create lots of beautiful images with one simple theme.
