Favorite Newborn Poses for Photos
Lakewood Ranch, Florida Newborn Photographer
My style of newborn photography is not full of stiff or uncomfortable poses. I love to capture your family loving on your baby as you naturally would. My favorites are the ones that showcase your family as you begin your new season of life with the newest addition to your family.
My photos may sometimes look very candid and/or very natural. You may not feel natural in front of a lens; however, I give you gentle guidance that bring out natural reactions and connection. While guiding you in the natural light and showing those gorgeous connections, the results are all you and your family.
To show you what I mean, here are some of my favorite poses with newborns so you can see what a session looks like with me.
Let’s get the family together
Whether this is your first or your fourth, we’ll get in some family snuggle time. We’ll usually take these in the master bedroom on the bed so there is plenty of room to spread out and include your fur baby or siblings. As you hold your baby, kiss him, study all their tiny details, and I’ll capture it.
We can get a lot of different angles capturing all the different interactions and connections you are making with your baby.
Time to lay baby on the bed
This is one of the most natural poses. We just lay baby on the bed and let him naturally pose himself. He can begin swaddled, in a white onesie or with just a diaper on. I like to get the top of their head, toes, hands – all those tiny details. I’ll also get full-length shots as well.
Seeing your tiny baby on your great big bed years down the road gives you a visual of just how tiny he was that we never can seem to remember as we get older.
In the crib we go
We’ll next step into your nursery and capture some sweet photos of your newborn in their crib. We can also take some photos of the family showcasing your nursery, especially if you created a particular theme or décor for the nursery.
Just baby with each parent
During the session, I love to capture photos of each parent loving on their baby. Seeing again how really tiny they were against your chest or in your arms will really be special as you look at these years from now and will be treasured forever.
The actual flow of the session will depend totally on your baby and the rest of your family, if there are siblings. These are baby-led sessions, meaning we’ll go with however the baby is feeling at the time as well as mom, dad or the siblings. If everyone is ready to go at the beginning of the session, we’ll start with the entire family as little ones can get very tired quickly. If we get them first, they can then go play while I begin taking photos of just the baby and mom and dad. Again, we’ll go with the flow and capture everything we can. This allows a more relaxed and enjoyable session and you’ll have photos you will love and cherish forever.
