I photograph A LOT of newborn babies. My favorite way to photograph them is to have a parent hold the baby in their arms to show how little they really are. This gives a since of scale and these are always my favorite photographs when I look back on a newborn session.
Something I’ve seen a couple of times in the last week that is trending is photographers taking pictures of their own babies in their camera bag. Again, I love the sense of scale these photographs show. Hard to believe a newborn baby is hardly bigger than a camera lens! I’ve photographed babies in baseball gloves, on guitars, and in fireman boots to name a few. What is unique about your job, your passion, or your life that you could incorporate while taking a few snapshots of your own baby? What would you like to incorporate in a newborn session? Let’s get creative!!!
